Food Friday – Veggie Mac & Cheese

IMG_1139

I have lots of random veggies that I don’t usually cook with a lot in my fridge these days, so I’m trying out new recipes. I’m loving how sweet the orange and yellow peppers are.

Veggie Mac & Cheese

1 can of corn, drained or 3 corn cobs with the corn cut off
1 yellow pepper (or any pepper of your choice) – diced
1/3 cup sliced okra
Handfull of cherry tomatoes
2 Tbsp butter
salt & pepper to taste

Mac & cheese of your choice – I made a slightly spicy mac & cheese

Make your macaroni and cheese according to package directions or follow your favorite recipe.

Place butter and vegetables in a skillet over medium heat, cook stirring often until peppers are slightly softened. Season as wanted with salt and pepper.

You can mix the veggies in with the mac and cheese or put them on top like I did. Cheese and veggies are such a delicious combination!

Food Friday – Spanish Eggs

I prefer to mix my veggies in with my eggs while cooking the eggs, but to accommodate picky eaters I just added the veggies on top of my eggs after cooking everything.

These are fast and easy meal option.

1 Bell Pepper РI used red
1 Small red onion
1 cup of corn kernels (it’s about 2 or 3 cobs worth of corn or 1 can, drained)
1 handfull cherry tomatoes (I only used 4 because I’m the only one who will eat the tomatoes)
2 Tbsp butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Dice your pepper and onion. Heat a skillet on the stove and melt your butter. Add all the vegetables to the pan and cook, stirring often, until softened and onions are translucent. About 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

While your veggies are cooking scramble your eggs.

Top scrambled eggs with veggies and add cheese or salsa on top if wanted.
