Chicken « cordon blue » prepared on the grill without any butter or olive oil. Combined with a salad of tomatoes, cucumber and red onion. You can add some fried pine kernel. Gives it a nice taste!
For the vinaigrette: one spoon of champagne vinegar and two spoons of sunflower oil.
This is how you prepare a healthy lunch… when all of a sudden the husbie suffers from diabetes. And as from now on, we need to pay attention to what we will eat and drink. A real challenge for foodies like us!
Sunday evening, time for spaghetti. Been busy the whole day cleaning up the apartment. Especially the kitchen got a real make-over. We also went to IKEA and we bought some new kitchen stuff 🤪 plates, glasses, coffee mugs, … I’ll use them for my next food pictures.
Didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen and spaghetti bolognaise seamed to me the perfect sunday dish. Minced beef, onions and tomatoes, that’s all you need for the bolognaise sauce.
One of the biggest challenges when you’re trying to pay attention to what you’re eating, is the fact that you’re so busy running around all the time and that buying a sandwich (club, martino, …) in the shop is so easy.
Unfortunately that is, in my eyes, the only positive thing about it. They are often too big (half of a « baguette ») and too fat (too much butter or mayonnaise).
I prefer to buy myself little sandwiches and to choose which topping to use. Today I went for fresh salad, mini-tomatoes and chicken fillet. The juice of the tomatoes makes them « not to dry ». And you won’t be tempted to add mayonnaise. Why do you need more?
Don’t have much time this week as it is so busy at work. No new recipes, no new creations, just the usual basic stuff 😊 and nothing’s better than a good spaghetti bolognaise. Tomatoes, onion, minced beef, salt and pepper. That’s all you need to make a tasty sauce.
Typical lunch: a fresh salad – with cherry tomatoes, red onion and chives – and a shrimp croquette. As dressing for the salad I’ve mixed some salad oil with champagne vinegar. Delightful!
Cook the spirelli following the instructions on the package. Let them cool down. Once cooled, you add sweet corn, chopped tomatoes and ham cubes. Finish with olive oil and chives. Mix it and you’re ready to eat a nice pastasalad.
