Throwback Thursday- Chicken with tomato and green chili sauce

I made this yummy dish 1 year ago. I have made it a few times since then, but it has been awhile. I might have to add it to my meal plan real soon.


Sautéed Kale with Egg and Tomato


Beautiful kale from the farmer’s market.


Sautéed in a bit of olive oil with salt, pepper, and a couple of shakes, of red pepper flakes for spice.


Top with a sunny side up egg and a fresh summer tomato! A delicious healthy vegetarian meal!
I think this would be great with a whole wheat piece of toast or on a bagel.

The B.E.L.T- Bacon, Egg, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich

The best thing about a sandwich is there is no right way to make one. You can add anything you like. You can leave off something you don’t like. You can take a classic sandwich, like the BLT, and change or enhance it, if you will. The same can be done for the Grilled Cheese. One of my daughters did not want a BLT, but a grilled cheese with bacon. Ok. Love it! My husband wanted a BLT, so I made him the classic. My other 2 daughters wanted a plain grilled cheese and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I wanted to have a BLT with a poached egg.

You might say, “Why are you making everyone something different? I thought you only make one thing and everyone has to eat it?”

That is my rule for dinner. I only make one meal. You eat it or starve. No one has starved. Everyone eats. Breakfast and lunch are a different story. I have no problem making different meals for breakfast and lunch. Usually everyone always wants to have the same thing anyway. Every once in a while, someone might want to be unique, so I roll with it. C’est la vie!

Here are some very lovely pictures of my BELT. I toasted some rosemary french bread, slathered it with mayo and horseradish, added my bacon, lettuce, and tomato, and topped with my poached egg. Messy, but oh so good.





Balsamic Tomato Bruschetta

Stuck in a lunchtime rut? This week I have had cheese and Triscuits almost everyday for lunch. So today I came up with this easy beauty. Bruschetta- pronounced bro͝oˈsketə/- or sometimes by Americans- bro͝oˈshetta is a toasted Italian bread drenched in olive oil and served typically with garlic or tomatoes. You can really top it with anything you like, but this garlic and tomatoes are the norm. We also make this sometimes with mozzarella, tomato, and basil. No matter how you say it or prepare it, these yummy toasts are quite satisfying for a snack, lunch, appetizer, or side dish for dinner. I served with mine with a side salad.

Balsamic Tomato Bruschetta

Turn oven on broil. Take some sliced baguettes, rub on some garlic. Drizzle on some olive oil. Top with sliced or chopped tomatoes that have been lightly dressed with some Balsamic Vinegar. Cook for just a few minutes. Keep your eye on these guys so they don’t burn. Add to a side of pasta, salad, or just enjoy as a snack!
