My day started with incredible eggs! I think I've told you all before that I make a habit of chopping an onion and a green pepper each week to streamline my mornings -
That is one reason I have never regretted buying my Cuisinart Mini-chopper!! So after grabbing these two KEY ingredients to my incredible eggs, I chop a little low fat ham leftover from a previous evening and I'm on my way!
I start with a little cooking spray on the pan, then add a Tbsp of each - onion, green pepper and ham (1pp). After giving them a few minutes to soften, I crack a fresh egg over them and break the yolk:
The day was spent mainly on the couch in my living room reading...so I never took photos of lunch, either! Please forgive me! To make it up to you, however....I have the scoop on a great new recipe (to me, anyways)...But first a story.
I was reading all day - oh, that's right, I said that already. So when I finally finished the book, I took a moment to check my e-mail before I had to run out to the grocery store for something for dinner. There sat a new message from a dear friend with the recipe below - and she was asking what I thought. There were incomplete instructions, and no PointsPlus values for it - but a recipe with only TWO ingredients ??- one being cake mix and the other being pineapple ??- WELL, I just HAD to add those two ingredients to my grocery list ASAP. I then plugged the ingredients into the Recipe Builder on WW Online e-Tools. Doing that lets you tell it how many servings you'll cut it into and it then calculates the points plus value for it. So, I figured 12 servings (big ones) and it said 4pp!! Woo Hoo!!
Pineapple Upside Down Cake - 4PP!!
Two easy ingredients:
1- 20oz can of Crushed Pineapple in its own Juice
1- Box of Angel Food Cake mix
Here's how easy this is - put the entire contents of each into a mixing bowl, juice and all. Mix at medium speed for about 2-3 minutes. In my Kitchen Aid mixer it was almost to the top of the bowl by the end of 2 minutes! It beats up like egg whites. Pour the entire contents into an UNgreased 13X9" pan and level it off. It practically fills the pan to the brim! Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes until golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and loosen the edges of the cake from the pan. Put a tray over top and flip it carefully. Let it set like that for a couple of minutes, then remove the pan carefully. Cut into 12 even peices for 4pp each.
If you are a pineapple lover -as am I - then I'm sure you will find this cake is awesome! If you look carefully, the whipped cream in the photo above looks a little messed up. I was shooting it with my Flip camera - and while doing that, my 17 year old was asking about the laundry he was doing (this is a first for him)...and I didn't even notice that the cherry was sliding right off the cake! Here is the picture at the beginning of the film strip as it first began to take its slide:
By the way - this recipe was shared with me by a good friend and follower of this blog - THANKS LORI - I love it and I love you for sharing the recipe with me!!
