After a couple of days of veggie soup, I wanted Southern Grits and cheese! Then, I wanted to try the microwave cornbread muffins that I do with cheese! LOL I added a couple of blueberry muffins, for dessert.
*Microwave muffins are FAST, FAST, FAST—but—remember, they do NOT brown. I do it in microwave UNLESS I have company and “looks” is an important factor. I did photo of cornbread and blueberry muffins, before baking. The photo of them on plate with the grits are after baking, of course. Not brown, but delicious!
My Food Diary August 2012
For a change, quick breakfast of cheese toast, egg, and sliced fruit.
Whole wheat bread with grated cheese, toasted in a toaster oven. Egg done on top of stove in a very small amount of butter. Added a few slices of fresh fruit that I had on hand.

Breakfast, any time of day! LOL
1/4 cup grits
3/4 cup water
Add to microwave safe container. Cook 1 1/2 minutes, stir, cook 1 minute more. Check in less time each time, stir each time. When done, add amount of cheese you desire. Stir. Serve on plate with egg and toast.
1 T. water
Place egg into egg cooker (see photo). Add water. Scramble egg, Add black pepper. Cook in microwave until done. This is usually 1 minute for mine. Add to plate with grits.
2 slices bread
Place bread in toaster. When done, remove, spread lightly with coconut oil (instead of butter), if desired. Cut into desired shape or leave whole. Add to plate with grits and egg. \
Enjoy! I usually don’t use oils, butter, and such when cooking. However, now and then I do put coconut oil on something, for variety.
Easy and quick. I think it’s healthy, too. We should have “some” of all food groups but not in excess.
Variation of Pizza in Nuwave Oven
I bought a cheaper brand, pre-made pizza.
Placed face down on aluminum foil in the round silicon pan.
Bake for about 15 minutes on 4 inch rack.
Turn Pizza over (I turned onto a plate and slid back into the silicon pan.
I added sliced tomatoes, mushrooms, and grated cheese—on top of the pre-made topping on the pizza.
Bake for about 10 additional minutes.
I use the chart that came with the Nuwave to cook this, I just add some ingredients during the last half of the cooking time and keep an eye on it as it browns and the cheese melts.
This could be done in a conventional oven or toaster oven. I simply like using the Nuwave.
Leftover Roast, Grilling Beans, and Multi-Grain Tortilla
Left over roast beef, sliced
Bush Grilling Beans, heated
Chopped tomato, chopped green onion, and grated cheese. Of course you may want to add lettuce, bell pepper, and other toppings of your choice.
I heated the roast beef slices, the left-over grilling beans, and the tortilla.
Layered the meat, beans, chopped tomato, and grated cheese. I didn’t roll up the tortilla this time. I just wanted to eat it with a fork.
This is quick, easy, and healthy. I know many people are rushed these days and prefer something simple and quick. I also know senior citizens like uncomplicated, easy, quick,frugal, but nutritious meals. I leave the complicated recipes to the experts.
If anyone can tell me how to PIN this on Pinterest, please let me know. I find this rather confusing. Thanks.
