"Big Bowl of Breakfast" & More!

Saturday morning was another glorious game day.  We began ours with a big, hearty bowl of breakfast.

 This extremely filling breakfast was the perfect start to a football-filled Saturday.  This is a mixture, of egg beaters, broccoli, turkey sausage (instead of Canadian bacon like the recipe called for), potatoes, and of course, cheese.  Add a mimosa, and it is the perfect early game day treat!

Next up...the perfect margarita!!

I love spice, and I love margaritas.  The only problem is the calories and sugar in them.  Thanks to a real housewife, I can have my cake and drink it too.  All you need to do is slice up a fresh jalapeno-leave the seeds in- and add to a glass of Skinnygirl Margarita!  It's best if the jalapenos can soak in there for a bit so that flavors are stronger.  Cheer!

Tonight, our main dish was Coconut Rice with Black Beans.  It was full of flavor and creamy.  The jasmine rice soaked in butter, minced shallots, light coconut milk, water, and a pinch of nutmeg, until the rice soaked up all the liquid and was ready to be mixed with the black beans.  Add a dollop of FF sour cream on top and a dash of fresh lime and you are good to go.  I bet the margarita above would compliment this meal well.  Tomorrow will be a good Monday with leftovers like these to look forward to.

Here's to a week of new recipes and lesson plans.
