I love to cook. My husband loves to cook.
That can be problematic. But, we try to take turns. Although, it is always my turn to clean the kitchen. That doesn't seem right.
Usually, for breakfast Max, Bianca (the dog) and I have scrambled eggs and a fruit. I have been putting a yellow bell pepper and asparagus in our eggs. Yes, my son gobbles it up!
The bell pepper has lutein in it that helps the eyes. It is considered the "eye vitamin". So, we use it as much as possible.
Don't forget the kale! Yes, we love kale at this house. My son will eat it up, also. I do realize there will be a day when he will not. But, for now, I'm going to stuff him with the best foods possible!
While mom was staying with us I didn't get to cook as much as I would normally. Of course, the day my eye "went bad" our dishwasher kicked the bucket. Jeff, our amazing appliance guy, said we have to let this one go. So, we are still shopping for a new dishwasher, until then mom and I are/were the dishwasher. My husband is super picky (it's a curse and a blessing) so, I am patiently (grumpily) waiting for his busy season to be over to get a new one. He works 14 to 16 hour days until April 15th (guess what he does?)
Until then, I am trying to make one pot meals.
I refuse to use paper plates! Even if that means I have to hand wash a bunch of dishes.
We had pinto beans (dry, not canned) with every yummy thing I could find in the fridge. There was some brown rice, kale, fennel, bell pepper, and breakfast sausage mixed in the beans. It was soooo good. Max devoured it! He even licked the bowl.
Oddly, when I was pregnant I craved fennel. So, for about 6 months we had a fridge full of fennel. It's good my husband likes the stuff.
In my cast iron skillet we had my favorite cornbread recipe. I added rosemary, the rosemary came from my little herb garden. I do have my eye on a bigger cast iron skillet since I use it for everything. But, for now this one will do.
