Welcome to Tuesday 4 in honor of Toni Taddeo.
1. What do you have at breakfast? What can you recommend?
Lately I haven't been into breakfast for some reason. Normally I would like some oatmeal or some Cheerios with almond milk.
Maybe every other week Mark will make eggs and we will have a breakfast egg sandwich.
I like to put spinach on a lunch sandwich so when I have leftover spinach I will saute it with a scrambled egg. Actually I will be doing that this morning!
2. What is your favorite meal of the day and why?
I'm going to say dinner because that is one meal we will usually eat together. It's a meal we talk about in the morning in case we need to thaw some meat.
Mark is not a breakfast and lunch person. I do like 3 meals a day but tend to eat only when I have stomach hunger and not buy a clock.
3. Tell us about your typical lunch or dinner.
If I have bread and lunch meat in the house I will have Dave's bread with spinach, low sodium turkey and maybe a slice of cheese. Sometimes lunch is an apple with peanut butter or maybe yogurt.
Dinner we will have oven roasted pork chops or chicken breasts with a vegetable. Sometimes it is cooked on the grill.
Sometimes it is salad for dinner. We usually make a pizza on Friday nights. We do sliced onions, colored peppers and Italian sausage in the oven about once a month. It's definitely a favorite of ours.
4. Were meals different growing up or do you continue much as your mother did?
I know my mom made dinner and she was a great cook. I remember dinners around the table but I also have blocked out some childhood memories as my mother had issues of her own.
I certainly tried to have dinner around the table with my children when they were growing up.
