Wednesday

When I woke up this morning I thought I really fancy some “Cream of Wheat” for breakfast!  I can’t remember the last time I had some.  It somehow reminds of semolina which I loved as a child!  The best part is it is 100% Simply Filling.

I had mine with some blueberries sprinkled on the top and a Banana to follow, which I ate on my way to a Doctor’s appointment this morning.

Lunchtime was another of those easy ones.

I took the leftover portion of the Picadillo from last night, together with a Multi Grain Thin bun and made a sloppy joe style sandwich.  Served up with some 0% Vanilla Greek Yoghurt and an Apple.  A 100% Simply Filling lunch.

For dinner this evening I made Italian Turkey Burgers and Zucchini Fries.

I was actually quite surprised with the Zucchini Fries.  They were pretty tasty.  The first few I breaded up seemed to have more of a coating and they were definitely more crispy.  I used panko breadcrumbs because that is what I had on hand, but I think because the crumbs are bigger they almost didn’t stretch as far as using a fine breadcrumb, if you know what I mean!!  Can’t go wrong with a good old turkey burger, this one had a nice Italian flavor going on.

In a bowl combine the turkey, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, red pepper flakes and basil together until just combined.

Whisk together the egg and tomato sauce and add to the meat mixture.  Mix until just combined.

Add the breadcrumbs and mix until everything comes together.

Form into two patties.

Grill or heat olive oil in non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Cook for about 7 mins on each side or until cooked.

For the Zucchini Fries – Mix together the breadcrumbs, oregano, rosemary, basil and black pepper.

Beat the egg whites and set aside.

Slice zucchini in half and then slice each half into quarters.  If you want them really crispy, slice each half into eighths.  The skinnier the slices are, the crispier they will be.  Sprinkle with salt and let sit for at least 5 mins on paper towels.  This will help remove some of the moisture.

Pull out the baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.  Dip the zucchini slices into the egg whites and then coat with the breadcrumbs.  Place onto the baking sheet.  Repeat.

Bake for 15-20 mins, flipping halfway through.  Let cool for 2-3 mins.

Today has been a good day, as I look back I realize that everything has been a Simply Filling food choice.  There are so many great ways out there to cook using only Simply Filling foods.
