This was my reality tonight. Inspiring, isn't it? I know.
Actually, it forced me to get in touch with my inner creative genius (insert laughter here) and whip up something worthy of a James Beard award. Well, ok, that's a little ridiculous, but here's what I managed:
The egg. It it perhaps the most under-rated food ever. I mean, they are like the perfect pair of jeans...you can dress them up or you can dress them down.
I dressed them...
with cheese. And let's face it. Who couldn't use a little more protein?
Ina (I speak of her like she's my next door neighbor) taught me how to make the perfect scrambled eggs. I mean perfect - not too wet and not too dry.
You start with a little pat of butter and let it melt nicely in a nonstick pan. Add your eggs that have been whisked up with a little milk or cream and salt and pepper. Then, with a rubber spatula, just keep it moving slowly and constantly, while occasionally scraping the sides until the eggs are not runny anymore.
It will change your life. I mean it.
To top off my scrambled egg delight, I added a little whole wheat toast and sweet fruit.
Mighty satisfying if I do say so myself.
