Do you like a Denver Omelette? Silly question, right? Most people, including Kiddo and Hubby, do. Sometimes I’m in the mood for everything except the omelette part. That’s when I switch into scramble mode.
Okay folks, let’s all fess up – what strange, quirky foods do you like to eat when no one is looking – you know the stuff I’m talking about – concoctions from your childhood that you made up or when you were a teenager that you still eat every now and then as an adult. For a while as a teenager I ate tuna fish sandwiches made with yellow mustard. Not because I liked the taste of tuna with yellow mustard, but because mustard isn’t as fattening as mayonnaise and we all know how teenage girls (even skinny ones) worry about body image.
Believe me I know, chives and green onions seems like an over-kill, doesn’t it? I’m here to tell you it isn’t. Chives are delicate and add pretty color to the eggs, while the onion “kick” comes from the chopped white part of a green onion.
Who doesn’t like a birthday breakfast in bed? Who doesn’t like a cupcake with a cherry on top? Okay, so this isn’t a “real” cupcake as in cake – it’s still just as adorable.
A few years back, I found a store that carried quail – as in the little birds and the tiny eggs. I had always wanted to try quail eggs. They are so small and cute. I wondered about the flavor.
Lately, I’ve been in a breakfast frame of mind. I adore weekends – those mornings when there is no need for my guys to rush out the door and skip the most important meal of the day – breakfast. During the holidays, with the long weekends it gave my guys that precious time to savor the mornings. Omelettes, scrambled eggs, piles of buttery pancakes – this breakfast loving gal has been in heaven! It’s always a treat when we can start our mornings together, sitting down to a nice, hot breakfast. Can you tell – I adore spending time with Hubby and Kiddo.
I don’t know about you, but I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to eggs at breakfast – be it fried or scrambled. With a good fried egg, I want the white fully set, with the yolk bright and runny. As for scrambled – they MUST be cooked through without being dry or rubbery. I’m no expert when it comes to eggs, I just know what I like, what my family will eat and what works for me.Continue reading “Picky About My Eggs”
