My mom and I are living in the house by ourselves right now which forces us to make decisions about what to eat for every meal. She and I tend to go with the flow on decisions but there’s no one else here to suggest something. That being said, we’ve been opting for easy healthy meals that can use up ingredients we already have. There is always a carton of eggs or egg whites waiting to be cooked up into a delicious omelette or scramble. On this particular evening my mom announced that I was in charge of cooking dinner, and as I opened the fridge to take inventory I was happy to find that there was quite a selection of vegetable for my omelette dinner. I decided to try broccoli, red onions and cheddar cheese on an egg white omelette. I actually cooked up way more of vegetables than would fit in the two omelets so we topped our eggs with the extras. Not much to say about the recipe, I chopped the veggies, fried them in a skillet, poured the eggs into the pan, let the eggs cook a little and then add cooked veggies, cheddar cheese slices and seasonings (salt and pepper in this case). When the eggs are mostly done, flip one side onto the other make sure both side are golden brown and serve.
Finally My Own Creation! October 25, 2009
This isn’t much of a recipe, but its a snack that I didn’t get out of a book. I just grabbed stuff I had in the fridge and threw it together. I love quesadillas and I have a large selection of cheeses in the fridge right now. I just grabbed a tortilla (of course it was an 80 calorie Smart&Delicious) and added some cheese and tossed in in the microwave for instant satisfaction. The next time I try something like this I think I’ll go easy on the ricotta, because that was definitely the most prominent flavor. For a quesadilla, cheddar should probably be the main cheese. Well at least the pictures look great, and this certainly isn’t original but it sounds pretty cool to say…

DIRECTIONS: Place tortilla on a plate, spread ricotta cheese over half of the tortilla. Sprinkle the other 3 cheeses on top of the ricotta. Its up to you where you sprinkle the cheeses and how much you want to add. If you’re a spicy lover like me, you can pour some tabasco over the top of the cheeses. Then fold the tortilla in half and place in the microwave for 30 second-1 minute depending on how melted you want the cheese. I only did 30 seconds, and you can see in the pictures that the cheese didn’t really melt.
I’m too lazy to figure the nutritional facts but the tortilla is 80 so the cheese probably brings it to somewhere around 200 calories.
