Busy times in our house this last week has led to a lack of posts on the blog. Hopefully this upcoming week, during spring break, I’ll have time to create and post. Because we know it will be a busy week of painting our house and spring cleaning, I have chosen a variety of easy Menu to create in the crockpot. Enjoy and if it’s spring break for you, too, enjoy!
Monday:Wicked White Chili (page 37 in the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook).(E)
Tuesday:slow cooker spinach artichoke dip (S)
Friday: Low Carb Pizza
Saturday: Grilled Fish with Sweet Potatoes. (E) To keep the kids happy, I usually bread their fish but my husband and I like to grill our fish with a side of sweet potatoes.
Sunday: Hummingbird Pancakes. (E). Who doesn’t love a breakfast choice for dinner. Here is what I came up with for a Southern Favorite Cake turned pancake:
Hummingbird Pancakes (E)
- 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup baking blend
- 4 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups egg whites
- 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
- 1 cup very ripe mashed bananas
- 1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple
- 1 cup almond milk
Pour oats into the blender and mix until powered form. Add the rest of the ingredients into the blender and blend well until a smooth texture. Lightly coat a non stick griddle with coconut oil spray and set heat to low/low-medium heat. Pour pancake size amounts onto the griddle and cook until brown. Flip and repeat.
