If there were no other reasons to love Friday, I would still be excited to be participating in Strange But Good! This is the fun link up created by Laura at Sprint 2 The Table. I obviously make strange choices that I consider good and it’s great to be surrounded by Other Strangers!
Not really sure if this qualifies for Strange But Good, but some people think it sounds odd. I started eating something like this when I was in Florida with my best friend, Gail. It’s her idea really, so I need to give her credit. :-)
Sorry for the messy counter…I’m still working on things since being sick.
Anyway…start with a glass measuring cup. Spray with non stick cooking spray. Add 1/2 cup of liquid egg substitute and 1/2 cup of liquid egg whites. I get these at Aldi, but they don’t always have them. I stock up and put them in the freezer when they do have them. So much less expensive than name brands! A handful of cut frozen asparagus which I had cut and put in the fridge the night before.
Cook for 1 minute 20 seconds. Give it a few seconds and then give it another 1 minute 20 seconds. If you do it all at once, it can overflow. Can’t chance losing anything. ;-)
It comes out in sort of a lump. That’s actually good, makes it easy to get out of the measuring cup. The cooking spray helps with that.
When I cut into it, I realized it was still a bit liquid in the center. The times I gave were for the egg mixture with nothing else in it. For future reference, I’ll know that when I add veggies, it requires a bit more time. I put it back in for another 30 seconds.
Cut up and with some ground black pepper (always!) added, this was delicious and filling. Adding the veggies made it even more satisfying. The regular egg substitute counts for 2 Points, the egg whites and asparagus count for 0 Points. This does not look as big in the photo as it did in person. Great breakfast for my Weight Watchers purposes! Also 22 grams of protein! Ok, by me!
I ate this early, because I needed to eat before taking my LAST dose of antibiotics. So happy about that. They certainly have done the trick for me. I’m feeling so much better and even added some exercise back in yesterday…a Very Slow 30 minutes on my exercise bike. Gotta get moving again, I’ve been feeling like such a Slug!
That’s Strange But Good for me, today. Be sure to check out Sprint 2 The Table to see what other strangeness you can find there. I love getting ideas and suggestions from the other linkers.
Happy Friday! It’s Strange But Good!
