Band of Easy Eats..

I just made lunch for the little one and thought some might find a few of my "go to's" helpful.
So here we go,

Scrambled eggs with a variety of add on' was basil, toms and some mexi cheese I had.

Hummus and pita---easy no cooking

Tortilla with cheese, or peanut butter

Bread with toms with a slice of cheese in the oven to melt

Pasta with butter and garlic sprinkled with parm cheese

Grilled hot dogs...yup even from me  ;)

PB and J

I always have fruit on hand, so that is super fun and easy add on as well as graham crackers and cheese.

Remember, we feed our kids, they will eventually eat what you give them. Good habits start early so bring them in the kitchen and have them help :}

Happy cooking,

My Nitch

I finally got it all figured out. I have my business license, love of good food and the need to share all that I know by having small lessons with people. I don not claim to be a chef, a dietitian, or nutritionist, but I do know my way around the kitchen.
I love to show someone how to use a new ingredient as well as how to shop smarter. Shop local, shop fresh and use as much whole foods as possible

With that said, let me share some of the good eats I have had recently.
You may or may not know that we took our family vacation on the gulf this year.
It was awwwesome! We had planned on catching lots of fish, preparing great dishes, and bringing some home for later
We got Skunked! not a single fish caught. we could see them everywhere, we just couldn't get them to jump on into the boat.
Thank god we had a semi alternative plan. We brought stuff, and ate out.

                                                     This was one of my creations:
A whole wheat flax seed pita stuffed with baby spinach, and grilled chicken. It was fantastic I must add.

Later that night we headed to the eatery and I had the Salmon. it was rather delightful however I would suggest ordering the sauce on the side. It was a bit sweet.

The best Place to EAT on the island was "The Bubble Room". Off the stinking hook deli-sh and the eclectic atmosphere was fabulous!!

Daisy and I had a mommy daughter date. I ate a simple avo, chicken pita ( fresh made pita!).

I snagged a few menus from the island so i could relive some of the great food, and rebuild the not so great!

Please feel free to follow me on face book to what the recipes come to life :)
