WIAW #18 Free Veggies & Blog Love

Welcome to Octobers second week of WIAW posts!  Todays post is pretty exciting (if I do say so myself) because I’ve been super busy in the kitchen the last few days.  And as always a shout out to Jenn @PeasandCrayons for being our gracious host!

Remember yesterday when I said that I LOVE this time of year when people are throwing all their extra garden veggies at me?  Well breakfast today was another fabulous meal from the abundant peppers given to me from a co-worker.  It is so satisfying knowing that my veggies were grown by the hands of people I know and love ~ and gosh darn it ~ didn’t cost me a dime!  Fresh. Cheap! Delicious!

Breakfast today consisted of 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg mixed with sauteed peppers from the garden stash.  I recently figured out that if I cook my eggs in the microwave the moment I’m going to eat them ~ they taste way better and are a lot less watery.  Re-heating scrambled eggs is kinda gross!  This is a great alternative. The only problem is what to do with the shells and yolks!!!!

Lunch is still finishing up the big batch of Thai Butternut Squash Soup I made last week. I added a piece of Trader Joe’s Naan to make it a little more filling. Since I am pretty much the only one who eats it between the two of us, it goes a long way.  But never fear it does not go to waste.  What’s nice about this soup is that it also freezes well.  So in the event that I get sick of eating it (which has not happened yet) I can always through it into the freezer for a meal in a few weeks.

Dinner all I can say is OMG!  Last week when Hannah from Clean Eating Veggie Girl posted the recipe for her Cauliflower Jalapeño Grilled Cheese I knew immediately I was heading home to recreate that sucker THAT NIGHT!  There is not much in the way of recipes that gets me this excited anymore ~ only because I’ve been cooking for what feels like an eternity.  So when I came across this one ~ it was like fireworks going off in my head ~ it was another one of the ingenious ideas that only BLOGGERS could invent!  Let me tell you when I say that this sandwich DID NOT disappoint in any way shape or form.  I think I’ve made it now about 4X’s since she first posted it and if you love Cauliflower & Cheese then this is a must try tonight!  The only difference to my sammy was the addition of real cheese.  I think I used Colby Jack and maybe a Swiss too!

Snacks around here have been pretty interesting the last few days as well. I chucked a few plantains in my cart during the last shopping extravaganza.  Looking for something different to do with them I finally attempted PurleyTwins Plantain Socca Bread that my two favorite girls created at the beginning of the year.  I’ve been reading Michelle and Lori’s blog now since we first met at Blend and let me tell you when it comes to being creative and inspiring in the kitchen and in the gym ~ these girls know how to rock it!  I am in awe at the fact that this bread is only two ingredients. It is sweet and moist and delicious and has crispy edges and ……well you get the point ~ right?   One ripe plantain and two eggs.  Blend and Bake.  Seriously  delicious!  My pan was empty in a matter of a few bites! Whoops! 🙂
