Smart Bagel

Isn’t this a pretty lunch? I am really enjoying the Everything flavor Smart Bagels lately.


Square foot garden #1

So far so good! We followed the guide for soil mix and used vermiculite, peat moss and 3 kinds of compost.

I’m trying to decide if I want to keep up with what’s planted etc here or just on facebook. These are big decisions! Tens of people might miss out if I choose the wrong one!

Preheat the oven to 350, and in a mixing bowl add

5 eggs, beat them and then stir in

2 1/2 tbsp flour and stir in

1 can evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)

Next stir in 1 box of thawed frozen chopped spinach (squeeze out the water)

1/2 cup chopped onion,

2 cups shredded swiss cheese (that’s one of the regular size bars, 8oz)

and about 1/3 pound of browned crumbled bacon (the best is to get the Applegate brand ‘Sunday bacon’ and use half the pack)

Stir it all together and split between two frozen pie shells.

Bake for about 45 min – 1 hour – when it’s a little browned and a knife stuck in the center comes out clean, it’s done.

Cool and serve with salad if you’re feeling fancy, eat giant wedges right out of the fridge if you’re in a hurry for a good lunch the next day.Image


1 bunch kale, stems removed and chopped.
1 small gala apple, chopped
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 tsp each salt, nutmeg, cinnamon
black pepper to taste


Made with this sauce + rooster sauce and 1/2 tsp sesame oil.

This one is a half a small chicken breast left over from yesterday, and a bag of steam stir fry    vegetables ( I think the brand was Eat Smart) from next to where the salads are.
