Chiso (4 yrs) usually asks for homemade pancakes, waffles, or oatmeal for breakfast. i have been throwing everything on my griddle usual! it's my staple appliance cause it's just so easy and convenient. plus the price tag was SO worth it. our previous griddle seriously lasted like 10 + years, no lie. that's using it at least 5 times per week too! get you one. 30 bucks!
last week was Red Ribbon Week and the kids got to wear different things on different days to preschool. this guy could not WAIT for thursday cause it was pajama day!! he was the only one with pajama shorts as we walked up to school, lol. we sent this pic straight to Granny.
immediately after school, it's lunch time. kids are just like adults; if they go a few hours without eating, attitudes and tantrums pop right on up. so once home, you guessed it, i whipped my grill right back out and threw some Applegate organic uncured turkey hotdogs on there with some Nature's Own whole wheat buns. i add some shredded colby jack to Chiso's and he is good to go.
i got in a workout while Chi was at school and i stopped by Sprouts Farmers Market before heading to pick him up. fresh brussels sprouts are on sale this week so that prompted me to finally put some in my cart. i have never cooked fresh sprouts before yall, only frozen! i have definitely been missing out.....
do you see that beautiful green!? gorgeous! i washed the sprouts, halved them first, then chopped up one yellow onion and diced a handful of turkey pepperoni. next, i coated my pan in olive oil spray, then threw everything into my cast iron skillet on medium high heat and let it sauté for about 12-15 minutes. didn't have turkey bacon but the pepperoni was the next best thing IMO. i added a squirt of coconut aminos, cracked black pepper, and BOOM. quick, healthy, and flavorful.
apparently balsamic vinaigrette is the key ingredient to tasty brussels sprouts! i got several facebook and IG comments about adding a bit to my sauté next time. duly noted! can't wait to try! also a bit of honey is an option as well.
the sprouts paired perfectly with our wild chipotle paprika salmon, also on sale at Sprouts this week. i baked a 2 lb fillet for 14 minutes on 450 degrees, fyi.don't be all talk and no action! get on your grind and handle your business. actions will always speak louder than words, fit friends.
Q: how do you cook your sprouts? what else can i throw in my skillet with them that you've tried (and love)?
