Something New

Well, for me anyway.  There are times when I get into a food rut.  I really enjoy eating one particular thing and keep eating it until I don’t want to see it again for a long time.  With the gestational diabetes it’s gotten a little harder.  I’ve been eating a lot of the same things because it’s easier since I already know how many carbs are in it.  The downside is that it gets a little boring. 

So on a duty night I was stuck on what to have for dinner.  I decided bacon sounded good and figured scrambled eggs would go well with it.  I have to be in the right mood for scrambled eggs and didn’t want2012-05-27 17.57.45 just plain scrambled eggs.  I thought about adding fruit but that wouldn’t give me enough carbs.  Then I had (what I thought was) a brilliant idea.  I’d make a breakfast wrap!  I’ve been eating wraps a lot because they have 25 carbs per a tortilla and that’s about half of what I need for lunch and dinner.  Adding eggs would make it different than the bean and cheese “quesadilla” I’ve been eating. 

Since I wanted my bacon on the side I decided to use some of the Canadian bacon I bought for egg sandwiches (ran out of English muffins so it’s just been sitting in the fridge.)  Here’s what I did:

1.  Cooked the regular bacon so I could still enjoy it.  I like mine extra crispy so I tend to let it burn.  So yummy!

2.  Cut up some strawberries and defrosted some frozen mango for 30 more carbs to round out my meal.  Munchkin and I have been loving fruit, especially mango.  I’ve had to cut back so this was a perfect chance to enjoy some!

3.  Once the bacon was done, I cooked the Canadian bacon on the same frying pan.  Once they were browned on both sides, I lined them up on my tortilla.

4.  I added some sour cream on top of the Canadian bacon for a little extra flavor.  Next time I would put the sour cream on first but it was an after thought.

5.  In the same frying pan I scrambled two eggs.  I added some salt and pepper and well as some cut up green onion.  I love me some green onion!  When they were done I put them on top on the sour cream.

6.  Then I topped the eggs with some cheese.  I had a few grape tomatoes hanging around so I cut them up and put them on top.

7.  I realized that I had to much filling.  This is a common problem for me so I decided to eat it more like a taco than a wrap.

Here’s what I ended up with:

The end result was delicious.  This might be a new go to meal while DH is gone!

Do you have an easy, favorite meal when it’s just you for dinner?


  1. On Hubby's last deployment, my favorite dish was fettucine alfredo from scratch.  I kept a block of parm in the fridge with a carton of heavy cream and sticks of butter.  Terrible, nutrition-wise, but tasty for a once-in-awhile-when-I'm-missing-Hubby meal.

  2. That made my mouth water.  I could live off of breakfast food. 

    BTW, I haven't forgot about the guest blog.  I'll get it to you hopefully this week.

  3. I'm not a huge breakfast person unless it's waffles with fruit. I could eat that all the time!

  4. YUM. DH makes a great alfredo:) Now that sounds good and I might have to have it soon...
