I think I was too ambitious today.
My husband has left on a business trip. Yes, of course I will miss him. But part of me likes his business trip because not only do I get to watch trashy soap operas that he hates, but I get to make things that he would never eat.
Today I attempted not one, but two recipes. First, I wanted to make soup. I decided to try my hand at corn chowder, something I have never made before. And I wanted to use my crockpot, an appliance that I don’t use nearly often enough.
The smell of the soup was driving me crazy all day. It smelled fantastic.
However, the flavors just weren’t there. I wanted something creamy and this wasn’t it. And the flavors did not work. Plus, I did not chop the potatoes enough and I think I put too many in there. Oh well. You can’t win them all, right?
But my second recipe was a true success. Biscuits that require only four ingredients. Yes, you heard me right . . . four ingredients.
These are light, fluffy, and they are low in calories and fat. The best part is that they are baked in little muffin tins, so it’s built-in portion control.
If they are so small, surely I can eat five of them right? Don’t worry, I didn’t eat five of them.
But my dinner did consist of a few bites of soup, along with two of these babies. And since I had one too many white chocolate covered pretzels this afternoon, I had a very carb heavy day.
Good thing I did the Jillian Michaels Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism workout earlier.
You can’t get much easier (or lighter) with this recipe. Enjoy.
Easy Biscuits (makes 6 biscuits)
1 c. self-rising flour
1/2 c. nonfat milk
2 tablespoons low fat mayonnaise
I can’t believe it’s not butter spray
Mix all ingredients (except butter spray) together and place in greased muffin tins. Spray I can’t believe it’s not butter spray on top of biscuits. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
I am so glad I managed to save some for tomorrow. I see myself eating a couple of these tomorrow with strawberry preserves. Suddenly, I can’t wait for breakfast. 🙂
