Monday – March roars in like a lion

Here in Southern Alberta we had quite the snow storm come in yesterday.  The wind was blowing so hard, the snow was horizontal!!

My 7 year old granddaughter reminded me about the “in a lion” poem about March…she had obviously heard it at school.  So she informed me yesterday afternoon that March had definitely come in like a lion.

March roars in like a lion
So fierce,
The wind so cold,
It seems to pierce.

The month rolls on
And Spring draws near,
And March goes out
Like a lamb so dear.

I am looking forward to the “lamb” part.  Although to be honest looking outside right now the sky is blue, the sun is shining and the show is melting – hurray!!!

Turkey Bacon Sandwich

Breakfast was a nice easy one, reached into the freezer and pulled out one of the Turkey Bacon Cheddar Egg Sandwiches  I made on Saturday morning.  Wrapped in a paper towel and microwaved for about 90 secs.  Had it with some fresh blueberries.  Very yummy.

Asian Edamame Salad

Eventually at about 2pm I was able to have my lunch.  I had some of the Asian Edamame Quinoa Salad leftover from Saturday.  I fully intended to turn into wraps, but I forgot to pack the lettuce.  Oops.  This and a banana were a simple and filling lunch!  I have come to the conclusion that I really like Edamame!

Teriyaki Pork

I used up the last portion of the Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas that I made on Saturday.  Wow, today has been an easy day!  Although tomorrow I have am having a Blueberry French Toast Bake, so I did need to remember to throw that one together before I go to bed, so it has a chance to soak into the bread the way it should!  I’ll share that one with you in the morning.  This quick Teriyaki was yummy.  It looked so colourful when I was cooking up the vegetables in the skillet.  I always enjoy something that has a lot of colour to it, somehow it just seems to look more nutritional!!

Serves 2

  • 3 Tbsp Soy Sauce

In a bowl whisk together Soy Sauce, Chicken Broth, Brown Sugar, Rice Vinegar, Garlic, Ginger and Sesame Seeds.  This makes a quick homemade Teriyaki sauce.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add cooking spray.  Add the carrots, green pepper, onion and snap peas.  Cook for around 7 mins.

Add the green onions, pork carnitas and teriyaki sauce.  Bring to a simmer and let simmer for about 3-5 mins as the sauce reduces.
