A day in my pouch is a series of blog posts to show what a typical daily menu looks like in my post weight loss surgery world. Yesterday's healthy and delicious menu...
Breakfast: I made a batch of my Egg Bites (aka Mini Crustless Quiche) this weekend and ate the last of them. These were vegetarian. I had some leftover peas in the fridge from a dinner. Corn, beans, peas, cabbage, spinach whatever... if you have a 1/2 cup or so in a container bumping around in the fridge this is a great way to use up those leftovers.
Shelly's Cheesy Pea Bites
1/2 cup cooked Peas
1 Yellow Onion, sauteed
2 Green Onions, sauteed
5 Eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon Dill
1/2 cup Shredded Swiss Cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan, Grated
a few twists of Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 F. Saute onions, set aside to cool. Mix all ingredients together. Be sure onion mixture has cooled slightly before adding to egg mixture.
Spoon (I use a small ice cream scoop) into a lightly greased non-stick mini muffin tin.
Bake for 30 minutes or until centers are firm. Makes 24.

Dinner: Sunday we went to the beach and to one of my favorite Farmers' Markets and I bought these really cool round baseball-ish sized summer squash, a big bag for $2.
I turned them into a sort of gratin for dinner...
Shelly's Summer Squash Gratin
3 cups-ish Summer Squash, sliced
1 Sweet Onion, sliced (Maui or Walla Walla)
1/2 cup Cooked Sausage, diced
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
Salt & a few twists of Black Pepper to taste
1/3 cup Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese
Saute onion and squash till tender, add cooked sausage and seasonings. I put it all in a oven safe dish and topped it with the cheese and broil 2 minutes until cheese is gooey and golden. This was delicious. You could use any summer squash you have locally available zucchini, crookneck, patty pan.

Snacks: Too much coffee (iced mostly it was a hot day) and for dessert a dollop of Ricotta Cheese with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of SF Maple Syrup and I dipped 1/2 a sliced peach.
