Quiche, Egg Casserole or Frittata? And we ate last week!

Hi friends! Can you believe it’s the last week of February already? This year is going by way too fast! Last week was pretty unexciting/normal for me, but I’ve actually been enjoying being a little bored these days as I take some time off from formal work after our move. I still seem to fill my days though and stay busy, but it’s a non-stressful busy, if that makes sense? Although, I have been looking at job postings lately, but I’m not going to rush into anything. If I decide to go back to the 9-5 soon, then I want to make sure it is something I truly am excited about. And there is still a lot I am thinking through in my head too. So we shall see.

Well, lets get to our meals from last week, shall we?

Sunday:Crockpot Chicken Fajita bowls

I’ve been on a crockpot kick these days, as I’m sure you can tell if you have kept up with me on here. I’ve loved being able to throw everything together, wait a few hours, and then have a delicious meal, plus tons of leftovers! For this recipe, I added a couple chicken breasts to the crockpot, along with 3 sliced peppers, one small onion sliced, 4 cloves garlic, 2 (10 oz) cans diced tomatoes, and 2 tablespoons of homemade fajita mix. I cooked everything on high for about 4 hours, and near the end, I added 1 tablespoon honey and 2 tablespoons lime juice. I think the honey and lime juice totally made the fajitas, giving it a sweet and citrus punch! So good, and husband approved. I served it over cauliflower rice for me and over corn chips for David. I added avocado (as always), and then cheese and sour cream for David. Delicious!

 

Monday: Leftover Kale and Cauliflower Soup

I always hang out at my sister’s Monday night (or at least until The Bachelor is over!), so I defrosted Kale, Cauliflower, and turkey soup from the other week, brought a big ol’ bowl to my sister’s, and then left the rest for David to eat! The soup tasted even better than I remember!

Tuesday: His and Her meat and veggies

Dinner East Week 7
I’m not sure there is a good way to photograph chicken sausage. Sorry y’all.

This warmer weather has me craving all the summer-y, grilling-season foods! We didn’t use the grill, but cooked on our cast iron which is a good second option. We cooked up a beef burger for David, and chicken sausage for me. I also roasted up some brussel sprouts and added a baked potato.

Wednesday: Leftover fajitas from Sunday

Tuesday: Sweet potato quiche (or egg casserole? Or frittata?)

I’m saying this is a quiche, but I’m not sure if it is? Anyone know what the difference is between a quiche, frittata, or egg casserole? Or all they all just different words for the same thing? Either way, I loved this Breakfast For Dinner meal!

Here’s what I did: I first sliced a sweet potato into thin rounds and roasted them with some coconut oil in the oven. While those were cooking, I sauteed some spinach and onion. Once the potatoes were soft, I lined the bottom of two single serving casserole dishes (but you could totally use a normal size dish) with the sweet potato. I whisked eggs into the spinach and onions, and then poured the egg mixture into each of the dishes. I topped one with cheese, and baked them both for around 25 minutes at 350 degrees. We loved these! I LOVE the sweet potato and egg flavor combination, but I may try regular potatoes next time to see which we like better!

Friday: Asian Sesame Salmon and veggies

Dinner Eats Week 7

I was in a desperate need for a new salmon recipe, and I luckily found one buried in my recipe drawer from an old McCormick spice container.

Asian Sesame Salmon

-2 tsp sesame seeds (I forgot to add these. Whoops.)

-1 tsp minced garlic

-1 tsp minced onions (I left out because I didn’t have it.)

¾ tsp ground ginger

½ tsp crushed red pepper (optional)

-⅓ cup honey

-⅓ cup thinly sliced green onions (I left out because I didn’t have any.)

-2 tbsp soy sauce (or coconut aminos)

-2 lbs salmon fillets

  1. Mix honey, green onions, soy sauce, and all the spices except the red pepper in a small bowl until well blended. Stir in red pepper to taste, if desired. Place salmon in a baking dish and spoon honey mixture over salmon.
  2. Roast salmon on 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a form, basting occasionally with honey mixture.

We loved this recipe, and I will definitely be making it again.

Saturday: Random!

Dinner Eats Week 7

Saturday evening, David and I joined my sister and her family at the Chattahoochee River Recreation area and had a great time walking around with the little ones and exploring. After, I was tired and hungry, so we stopped at the store to get something easy for dinner. David grabbed his favorite (a frozen pizza!), and I picked up a rotisserie chicken for myself (and future lunches this week).

Well, that’s it friends! Let me know what you will be eating this week!

AND really. What is the difference between a quiche, egg casserole, and frittata?
