On Sunday, I spent a little bit of time to prep food for the week.
These were totally from a box. They are the Krusteaz Honey Raisin Bran muffins & are delicious & quick to “make”. They totally defied gravity in that second photo!
Decided to try to prep ahead – made two servings. Put one in a ziplock to freeze (then will thaw overnight for the next morning). One I just left in the fridge overnight. The fridge one worked, will give an update on the frozen one when I try it. Flavor on this was good, but not very sweet – the honey all kind of fell to the bottom & I got one big glob on the last slurp. Here’s a tip: put honey in last, RIGHT before you blend. And yes, I DO use no-brand everything!
Dinner – pork lo mein:
This a home-made healthier version of lo-mein. My husband had smoked the pork the night before and it was really delicious in this. Sorry there is no final photo – I only remembered after we had demolished it.
The smoothie and lo mein recipes are from the FOOD magazine that Martha Stewart puts out. That is one amazing mini-cookbook with great ideas (see the freezer bag smoothie idea above). I am crossing my fingers there will be a new one in my mailbox when I get home tonight!
