Dysfunctional Chef: Spinach Spoon Bread

Your Dysfunctional Chef,  Janice Taylor invites you to eat healthy, feel sated, push away from the table :)

Your Dysfunctional Chef, Janice Taylor invites you to eat healthy, feel sated, push away from the table :)

Greetings One n’ All,  I spent all day yesterday; yes, every second of the day (no exaggeration), researching, perusing and deciding on what appetizer to make for tonight’s potluck dinner.  There are five of us bringing a variety of dishes.  I was assigned appetizer/hors d’oeuvres.  I have my own criteria when cooking.  Simple. Easy. Simple. Healthy. Simple. Tasty. Simple. :)

Anyway, I zeroed in on and decided to go with my (slow cooker) Spinach Spoon Bread that has on occasion brought forth orgasmic sounds.  Yes, I used the “o” word!

Again, I do love my slow cooker.  The dish was mixed and poured into the slow cooker at 7:30 a.m.  My work is done for the day!  I am singing a happy, healthy and tasty tune.

Here is the Spinach Spoon Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

1 (10 oz) box of chopped spinach, thawed and drained of liquid
1 bunch of scallions (5 or 6 in the bunch) sliced real thin
4 small sweet peppers, red and yellow, chopped minus the seeds, of course (You can substitute one red bell pepper if you must.  If you like.)
1 cup (8 oz) cottage cheese (2% or 4%…sometimes I go full fat, what the heck)
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon salt (I get this loose designer salt at the food coop.  It’s top end and I really do think it makes a difference.  Go ahead…splurge)
1 package corn bread mix, approx. 6 oz. (I go for the organic corn bread mix.  Again, the best ingredients make a world of difference.)

Instructions:
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix!
Spray slow cooker with non-stick spray.
Pour ingredients into slow cooker.
Cook on low for 3.5 hours

When done, carefully place the spinach spoon bread dish on a platter and garnish with sweet peppers, jalapeno stuffed olives.  Use your imagination.  Go colorful.  Go wild!  Take a photo and post in the Kick in the Tush Club/FB!

Enjoy!

#OneWord Thursday: #Winter Blues?

There are some folk who love winter. (Go figure!) And then there are some folk who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, who feel those winter blues like there’s no tomorrow. Here, Our Lady of Weight Loss shares 12 quotes to help brighten your seasonal funk!

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. ~ Edith Sitwell

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ~ Lewis Carroll

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. ~ John Steinbeck

Wisdom comes with winters. ~ Oscar Wilde

She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.” ~ A.A. Milne

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. ~ Anne Bradstreet

Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering. ~ Haruki Murakami

If winter comes, can spring be far behind? ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius. ~ Pietro Aretino

In the winter she curls up around a good book and dreams away the cold. ~ Ben Aaronovitch

now was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness. ~ Mary Oliver

Winter is nature’s way of saying, “Up yours.” ~ Robert Byrne

Best Weight Loss Tip: 20 Minutes Heaven or Hell…You Decide!

Did you know?  It takes 20 minutes before our brain catches up to our stomach and realizes that it’s full.  When we down the vittles fast, our brain doesn’t realize that we’ve ingested 800 calories (or more) in under three minutes. The brain thinks we are still in need of nourishment.  The brain thinks, “Hungry. Keep eating.”  And so…we do! (Ugh and Oy!)

Do you realize how much damage you can do in 20 minutes?  Not only can eating fast lead to weight gain, but it puts us at risk for acid reflux and choking! (Oh My!)

What to do? 

Slow down and eat with mindfulness. Savor the flavor!

That means no reading or watching television while eating, or talking on the phone.  Eating with mindfulness can help us to taste and enjoy our meal, while at the same time the stress from our day dissipates into the universe.

Sometimes it’s just that simple!

Mindfully yours,

Janice
