So far, I am sticking to my new goal of four healthy and vegetable loaded dinners a week. So, I made this last week- Asparagus Egg Casserole. Really it’s the Asparagus, Egg, Feta and Tomato Casserole but that is a little wordy. I just kind of made this recipe up. I wanted some vegetables and I wanted eggs as the main protein one night because healthy food gets expensive y’all – eggs make for a cheap night :)
salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 450. Saute yellow onion and celery in a little olive oil. I added some salt and pepper. Let them cool.
Wash, trim your asparagus into 1/2″ sections. I used the whole bunch. Then, blanch the asparagus.
Beat 8 eggs and add a little milk, salt and pepper.
Make sure the onion/celery mixture and the asparagus are not too hot and add them to the eggs. Add half of your feta cheese.
Mix and add the mixture to the casserole dish. Slice your tomato and place on top of the egg mixture. Top with more feta.
I baked mine at 450 for about an hour. But I think my oven isn’t as powerful as most…? Just keep an eye on it.
Serve with a side salad and Enjoy!
Do you have any healthy casseroles that I should try? They don’t have to be super low fat but they have to have a bunch of veggies… I just made that rule up, I think its appropriate.
Also… don’t forget to go enter the Digital Scrapbook Giveaway HERE that is going on through Sunday!
I have been trying to cook healthy dinners, from scratch at least 4 nights a week. (All 1950′s stay-at-home moms are cringing, I know) It has been going pretty well (thanks to Friday night Happy Hour :) Kidding, kind of. But seriously, last week I had four meals hot and on the table when my husband walked in from work. I was so proud of myself.
We make our grocery list and shop every Sunday. My list is so organized but then I get home and I have a fridge full of fruits and vegetables and I don’t know what I planed with what and I end up leaving something out. So, as if I am not anal organized enough, I now have another list. I have our weekly menu posted on our fridge. It looks cute, its functional and it also saves me from the 3pm call from my husband asking “whats for dinner”. Does every one’s husband do that?
I love cooking but 4 nights is hard for me with my two boys. If something is hard for me I make a craft and it makes it fun. And it has actually helped me stick to it because it is written down.
I made this Menu Board with a new software that I was asked to try called My Memories. So far I love it and you will never guess what it is…scrapbooking software! I have been playing around with it but I wanted to see if I could make other projects besides scrapbook pages. Success. I will have more on the software next week along with another giveaway.
Speaking of giveaways, you have two more days to enter the Custom Letterhead Giveaway going on HERE.
In the meantime, I will be busy planning healthy meals and actually cooking them.
I love anything and everything that is personalized. Is it just me or do you get excited if you see your name or logo printed somewhere (narcissistic much)? If you are like me and want to see your name in “lights” then check this out. UPrinting.com is giving away a 500-piece custom Letterhead Set to one for my lucky readers! How awesome is that?
Take plain onesies and turn them into a baby fashion statement.
Babies need a little refashion sometimes too. These onesies were originally embroidered with a little “baby saying”… cute but I thought the colors were a little too girly for my Clyde. He never wore them, I refashioned and re-gifted! I just used some fabric scraps and some imagination.
I made two; here is how I made the first one:
I started by embroidering the letter “f” on my fabric, I just penciled it freehand right on the fabric.
Next step is to iron interfacing to the back of the fabric. I went for the raw edge look and this way the fabric won’t fray as much.
Next, line the fabric up to the onesie and mark with a pencil where you will cut.
Sew around the new fabric that you are attaching.
Onesie refashion number 2…
Add interfacing to the back of the fabric again and cut out some pieces of the pattern.
Pin the pieces on the onesie so you cover the old design.
And sew. I again went for a messy sewn look. If you like a neater look you could do a tight zig-zag stitch around the perimeter of the fabric.
I added my fabric label…
and wrapped them up in a cute little package. Add some clips and you have a perfect baby gift.
