Today was one of those days I really wasn't into cooking - I'm still recovering from some oral surgery, so the foods I can eat are still limited. Soft and not spicy...neither hot or cold...it really didn't leave much to inspire me. Had one of my meds not required that it be taken with food, I might have skipped today entirely.
So I started with one of my 'comfort foods' for times I'm not feeling well...poached eggs over toast. I recycled an old photo...but skipped the orange because of the acid...not good for me this time.
Lunch was leftover soup from yesterday - Slow Cooker Bean Soup with Kale - 8pp for a huge bowl.
Dinner was from the Week Three Menu...Ham steak, Healthy Au-Gratin Potatoes and Broccoli. I originally got the recipe for the Au-Gratin potatoes from one of my favorite bloggers - Danica's Daily. I can't explain what took me so long to make them, but after making them tonight, they have surely become one of my favorites! I was a little slow to grab the camera...the family had already begun to fix their plates...but this recipe makes a big 9" x 13" pan full that serves 8! The house smells amazing, too.
