It may seem like all I'm doing or thinking about lately is food. Not true. I've also been sleeping pretty good. And not eating in between meals. And a couple of other things.
Looking for something a little different to make for breakfast this morning, I pulled this simple recipe out of the files. It's good for a fast, easy, satisfying meal for breakfast or any other time of day.
QUICK MEAL EGGS AND NOODLES
2 cups cooked noodles (whole wheat, spinach or your choice)
3 tablespoons butter or oil
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cook and drain the noodles and set aside. (Of course, this is a perfect way to use up any left over pasta that may be hanging around.) Heat butter in a skillet, add the cooked noodles and stir fry briefly.
Combine the beaten eggs and milk with seasonings. Pour over noodles in the skillet and scramble until eggs are set.
Garnish with paprika, chopped fresh parsley and tomato wedges. What a pretty plate that would make. If one had chopped fresh parsley. And tomato wedges. Which I didn't. Serves 4.
This morning I knew breakfast wasn't going to taste right without a little bacon, so I fried just 1-1/2 slices in the skillet first. Then I chopped the cooked bacon into bits and added them to the egg/milk mixture.
I also had about 17 left over green peas in the refrigerator so I threw them in. (Fresh chives are wonderful, too. I didn't have those either.)
Half the above recipe was just right for the two of us.
