Eggs, that’s what for lunch and dinner

July 25, 2010 § 22 Comments

The banana pancakes this morning kept me full for 4 full hours! It must be the combination of bananas plus whole grains and some protein! Definitely a keeper of a recipe.

As if we didn’t get enough eggs last night, the star of my lunch today were…eggs.

I used Allie’s method of cooking her eggs, and by golly, they indeed turned out beautiful! How shameful of me to cover them in nooch before I took a picture to do them justice. 😐

The eggs were on a bed of spinach and arugula, with some sugar snap peas, red pepper, roasted eggplants, and roasted sweet potatoes on the side. Can’t have roasted sweet potatoes without the ketchup!

I don’t know what took me so long to try date + nut butter, but it totally blew me away when I popped this bite-sized dessert in my mouth!

Love affair of date and crunchy almond butter.

Like what any normal person would do on a lovely Sunday afternoon, we window-shopped at this beautiful outdoor mall called Victoria Gardens in the P.M.

“Cinderelly, Cinderelly
Night and day it’s Cinderelly…”

I guess my legs were a bit tired and sore from the long-a$$ bike ride yesterday, so we came home for some splashing in the pool. While we were in the jacuzzi (hot tub) to end our splashing session, these two little girls (3 and 7 maybe?) joined us. At first I was playing with them, so I cupped my hands to get some foam and blew it at them. You know, for fun. They returned the foam blowing. At first it was just friendly and fun, and then they started to get violent! They’d put the foam on my head and pat my head, hard. They also splashed me in my face with the warm water :(. Now that’s not cool. I know, I know, they’re just kids, and I do love playing with kids. But sometimes they need to know when they’re stepping out of the line!

I had been planning to make this dinner ever since I saw it on Tina’s blog a few days ago. The Tortilla-Crusted Feta and Broccoli Quiche becomes the Tortilla-Crusted Feta and Spinach Quiche.

  • 3 La Tortilla Low-Carb tortillas
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup feta
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • salt & pepper

But first, the onion broke my fragile little heart. It laughed at me as I shed tears and cursed at it.

Well, I’m a tough girl so for my sweet revenge I sauteed it with some mushrooms in a little olive oil. I added the spinach to block out its glistening, golden eyes. I dumped everything onto the “crust” that was simply 3 layers of tortillas, and buried the onion deeper with the feta cheese.

pre-baked, without egg + yogurt mixture

I mixed the 2 eggs plus the yogurt in a bowl and whisked till well incorporated. I poured the egg mixture over everything.

Baked for about 40 min (instead of 30) because it was watery!

I put the okras that I got on Thursday to use. I usually eat them steamed with some soy sauce, but this time I decided to roast them. It was a good plan 😀

A wholesome meal!

Oh onions, why must you cry and turn the crust soggy? Well, I believe the yogurt was his accomplice too. See, I used plain yogurt which contained more water than your regular greek yogurt. Gosh darn it, I should have strained the plain yogurt first!

Well, I think I’m off to go relax and snuggle up with this cinnamon roll (or here)  that was just fresh out of the oven! Mmm..the smell of heaven…:D

Now go and enjoy your Sunday evening!

  • Dates with ab!!!

    Glad the egg cooking method worked!! I agree sweet taters needs ketchup no matta what.

  • kaztronomic says:

    Dates with nut butter are the best. It’s better than candy, seriously. 😀

    That cinnamon roll looks like heaven. Yum! And now I’m craving okra. I haven’t had it in a long while, but I keep seeing pictures of it and now I want it. Heh.

  • Oh yum, that lunch looks good. I think I’m more likely to have eggs for lunch or dinner than I am breakfast, too, haha. And your quiche looks great even if it was a bit soggy. Onions can make me have tears streaming down my face, too – it’s weird, some do and some don’t! But when they do…it hurts, lol.
    And the window shopping looked like fun – that carriage is so neat! I can only imagine seeing that go strolling down the road here 😛

  • Chelsey says:

    YESSSSS! I am so glad you finally tried the dates + nut butter combo.. isn’t it the best? I don’t really like dates just by themselves, but shmearing them with some buttah… divine.

    Your eggies look delish!

  • Brandi says:

    I love the idea of that tortilla crusted quiche! And your cinnamon roll looks great 🙂

  • Wonderful egg dishes! To me anything with eggs is tricky because they need to be flipped, folded, and what have you…but you did a great job!

  • Kat says:

    That quiche is such a great idea!! I love using tortillas as substitutes for things like pizza crust or anything like that. It really makes me feel better about what I am eating 🙂 Also, your banana pancakes looked BOMB. Like, whoah. Banana pancakes are my hubbys favorite…topped with chocolate chips of course 😉

  • Mmm eggs have become one of my favorite foods. Quick, easy, tasty, and good for us too 🙂 What’s not to love? I’m always adding egg whites to my oats/grains, and adding a fried egg to my lunch/dinner is always a favorite. Now you’ve got me craving eggs, and I just finished my oatmeal breakfast! I guess I know what I’ll be having for lunch 😉

  • teenagehealthfreak says:

    you make your eggs look so pretty and good! i wish i would take the time to teach/learn myself to make them better. ha ha you changed your header picture!! i like the lady bending backwards!! cooleo!

  • Well, of course the onion cried… you weren’t very nice to it. 😉

    ❤ ❤

  • my oh my i want that lunch!!! need to make something like this!!! ❤

  • Chelsea Ward says:

    Watery or not, I think that tortilla quiche looks delicious. Never fear, I struggle with onions too. I will master the art of chopping them somdeday.

    Dates + Nut Butter = Most delicious and wholesome treat ever. The trouble is stopping at just one.

  • Shannon says:

    everything looks delicious 🙂 it’s making me hungry!! i like stuffing dates with hazelnuts or almonds, too 🙂

  • actorsdiet says:

    i saw that recipe on tina’s blog too and was intrigued! note to self – greek yogurt!

  • Megan says:

    WOW your lunch looks gorgeous! As does that horse + carriage! And I finally tried dates with almond butter… heavenly!!

  • I saw that recipe on Tina’s blog and loved her idea! I just hate making leftovers, so I think I might revise it a little to make a single serving version. Hopefully it will still work!

  • Mae says:

    WOW everything looks so delicious! I think I may have to try that quiche!! 🙂
