While waiting for husband to get off work I decided to spend some time in the kitchen. The meal was sort of calorie conscious but not completely.
I started off by making my favourtie Smackaroni and Cheese recipe from The Looneyspoons Collection. I cooked it just like the recipe said and then I let it sit in my Ninja a little too long as my noodles were pretty soft. Next time I think I might try adding the noodles dry and letting the cheese sauce cook them. Or just eat it a little sooner or cook the noodles a little less. It was still as delicious as always I just prefer my noodles a little more al-dente.
While that was simmering (a step not called for in the recipe, again – probably why my noodles were soft) I made some hummus. Nothing special about the hummus I was just looking for a reason to try out my new Breville Control Grip immersion blender (it works awesome BTW!) I used this recipe – Hummus Without Tahini. I used cumin instead of red pepper flakes – I love spicy but wasn’t feeling it. Not really a very healthy hummus recipe but it was pretty decent. Normally I cut back on the olive oil but didn’t feel like it this time. I served my hummus with pita’s that I fried in a frying pan with a bit of olive oil and seasoning salt – again, not a very calorie conscious choice.
I love cooking and trying new recipes but for the past few months I have just been so lazy. Right now I am just trying to get back in the habit of cooking at least mostly healthy recipes and blogging about it.
