Hello beautiful people! This will be a quickie because I have a massive heap of Biology books to read my way through in an attempt to pass tomorrow’s exam. Wish me luck, I’m going to need it. But first: two things of importance today:
1) I celebrated Pancake Sunday!
Sneaking my green’s into breakfast, woot woot!
I used Kasey’s Lean Green Pancake recipe and it was pretty darn delicious. These babies were perfect with some peanut butter, bloobs, and maple syrup for dipping. You’ll never see my pancake pictures with maple syrup on top…I am a syrup dipper all the way. I think you get more of the flavor that way. It’s been a while since I’ve had a proper pancake breakfast, mainly due to time constraints, and I’m glad I was finally able to get my fix in!
2)You know what Sunday is….yep, it’s Sunday Prep Day again over here!
I’m letting other bloggers do most of the recipe thinking for me this week because my brain is currently filled to the max with cell reproduction and plant/animal/fungi history (please let me pass this exam tomorrow). Luckily, there is never any shortage of creative meals circulating through the blog world, so I have a feeling I will get by just fine.
I made a big dinner last night in order to have leftovers.
Shrimp Bake with tomato, onion, and olives
pulled out of the oven:
This recipe was inspired by Tina’s (well, actually her husband Mal) recipe a while back for chicken with tomatoes, onions, and black olives. I switched it up by using shrimp instead of chicken and it turned out great! Can you tell I’m on an olive kick lately? You either love ‘em or hate ‘em, which is funny because I used to HATE them. Now I can’t get enough! Interesting how things change over time.
plated up with feta and spaghetti squash:
Because obviously this morning’s breakfast would not fulfill my pancake needs. These will perfect to snack on this week.There were plenty of finger dips into the batter and I can assure you, they are safe to eat and will most likely taste amazing as well.
I’m also planning on making Naomi’s Curried Meatballs (with ground chicken) later today. Keeping things interesting!
Did you do any food prep for the week?
Are you a maple syrup dipper like me or do you slather your pancakes?
Olives: love ‘em or hate ‘em?
