It’s crazy cold so I’ve been home all day with plenty of time to cook
Breakfast was one of our favorites
Hash browns with an egg on top
I sauté diced onions and bell peppers in a little olive oil spray and then add frozen hash browns (or leftover grated baked potatoes when I have them)
When they’re done, push them to the side and cook your egg.
Lunch was meatloaf (that was not photo worthy but did taste good) okra and nut bread
This is the recipe for the nut bread. It’s low sugar and has no added fat (besides the fat in the eggs and nuts)
If you make this, grease the loaf pan well so it will release after baking.
I used pecans instead of walnuts and put in a good sprinkle of cinnamon sugar between 1/2 of the batter
It’s very good, just a little sweet and very nice toasted and with a mug of hot beverage of your choice - I like black tea ☕️
Lana asked about the Rubbermaid banana keeper. It’s new so I’m not sure how well it works.
My husband went to the grocery store and I asked him to get a few yellow and green bananas
None of these bananas are ripe enough to eat and the ones on the right are much greener than the bananas on the left
I plan to check them and take photos daily and we will see how well it works.
I understand it is “supposed” to keep fruit fresh longer - we will see!
I heard about these a couple years ago but it was about $32 on Amazon. I did put it on my Amazon wish list.
I checked my list last week and the banana box was $13 then so I thought I’d give it a shot.
And putting things in your cart or wish list (but not purchasing them immediately) at many online sellers can be a money saver. The sellers want to sell and if you check the price after a few days, it’s quite possible the price may drop.
