I'm not really in that much a blogging mood today. Probably because I'm coming down with a headcold. Joy.
Anyhow, I still wanted to share these two super healthy and quick ideas with you:
Next time you make scrambled eggs, start off with a 1/2 tbsp. butter in your skillet and saute some minced onion in it for one minute. Then pour in your scrambled eggs (whisked with 1 tbsp. milk per egg), sprinkle some chopped baby spinach and chopped tomato. Cook eggs as usual.
You can actually add 1/2 c. chopped spinach for every 4 eggs. It cooks down and you can't really taste it in there so it's a nice way to sneak in some veggies if you're like me and have a husband and daughter who aren't big fans of the dark green vegetables.
Going to an apple orchard this fall? When you get back and find yourself staring at baskets filled with apples, wondering what the heck you'll do with all of them, consider making homemade applesauce! It's super easy: peel and chop apples, add them to a saucepan with about 3/4 c. water for every lb. of apples and some cinnamon. You can add a 1/8 c. sugar per lb. of apples but if you're using a sweet apple, you really don't need to. Bring mixture to a low boil and maintain until apples are soft, adding more water if it evaporates away too quickly. You can blend the cooked apples in your blender or mash them slightly but I usually prefer to not do either.
I'm an applesauce purist.
If you've never tried making homemade applesauce, go crazy and make a batch this week! The flavor and texture is so different from what you get in the jars at your grocery store.
