This morning I woke up (at 11:30) really wanting fried eggs. I pull out the electric griddle and made a variation on a Weight Watchers recipes for eggs florentine:
The whole meal was only 4 points! Amazing! It was:
*1/2 cup fresh spinach and a minced 1/4 of a clove of shallot sauteed with a dash of nutmeg until wilted
*1 whole egg fried with a little non-stick cooking spray. I fried it a la Alton Brown by having the griddle on medium to med-high and placing a pot lid over the egg to “steam” the yolk. I left it there for about 5-7 minutes since I like my eggs over hard. It came out perfect! Golden, crispy bottom with a yolk that was stiff enough to not run, but undercooked enough to taste buttery and custard-y.
* I topped 1/2 of a Thomas’ Light Whole Grain English muffin with the spinach mix, 1/4 cup of fat free mozzarella, and the fried egg. Served with a side of 2 slices of Oscar Mayer Center Cut bacon (cooked on the griddle for perfect flavor!). SO AMAZING.
Since I had breakfast around lunchtime, I decided to skip a formal lunch since I knew we were planning for an early dinner. I ate an undocumented gala apple at some point in the afternoon, as well as a peppermint ice cream sandwich since Edgar was trying to clean out the freezer.
For dinner I planned a meal consisting of four different Weight Watchers recipes:
Chili Caribbean Shrimp Skewers
Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa
Tropical Couscous Salad
Grilled Pineapple with Basil and Ginger Cream Sauce
All of it was a relative success, save for a bit too much lime juice and cilantro overall. Did learn that I LOVE couscous.
