I have that idiotic Christmas song from Biebster Fever playing on a loop in my noggin space. I am going to go insane! You know the one about the mistletoe and shawties hanging out underneath it? Oh, the humanity!!!! Not that I’m not already insane. Why, just last week I went on a walk only to discover that I’d grabbed a pair of fluffy socks out of my drawer instead of the intended gloves… so, I wandered the streets for 45 minutes wearing socks on my hands. You are welcome, psychiatrists who want my business!
Here are a couple of the dishes I just about died over last week…
This here is my favorite invention. You take a can of no-salt-added diced tomatoes and mix it with a can of no-salt-added corn (drained) and no-salt-added pinto beans (drained). Then, you liberally sprinkle cumin and chili powder, mix it up, throw it on a pita or a flat bread or whatever flips your dress in the air, and warm it up in the micro-oven…. Of course, no dish of mine would be complete without grape tomaters since I have an illness that requires me to eat them daily… shut up… it’s true… Yummerified!
This was literally one of the best makeover, lightened-up Mac & Cheese recipes I’d ever eaten. It had so much flavor and it was gooey delicified! I doctored it up because I don’t use Velveeta cheese spread (and instead used Velveeta shreds I found in the shredded cheese section). Depending on how big the serving, this clocked in at between 350 and 450 calories… and was calorizing well spent! For some reason, I enjoy eating peas with mac and cheese… most times I just stir them together and call it a smorgasboard… Mac and Peas with Cheese, Please!
Question of the Day: Do you like macaroni and cheese? Any favorite recipes?
