At Last

At last I have had a perfect morning this week.  By prepping everything the night before I was able to get ready for work with leisure, I even watered my plants before work (which gave me time to mow the lawn after work).  It also gave me time to make a childhood favorite breakfast.  Although not complicated, it does take more then a minute in the microwave.  As you can see, I even had a little time to read the paper.

My favorite way to have eggs is over easy.  I love a runny yoke, and I love to dip my toast, bacon, hash browns, or whatever in that beautifully runny yoke.  So an “Egg in a Nest”  is the perfect fusion for having your runny egg yolk and toast wrapped cooked into one.  I’ve heard this called by other names, but growing up it was always “Eggs in a Nest”, so it will always be that for me.

As you can see, this was a much greater success than my soft boiled egg from the other day.

 Definitely slim pickins by now, but I managed a ‘mater sandwich, leftover carrot and celery sticks with the ranch dip, and a yogurt.


 After mowing the lawn, taking out the garbage and doing some laundry (I had to prove to the men that I can take care of myself), I really wasn’t in the mood to be overly creative.

I fell back on an earlier dish, a steak quesadilla and a simple green salad on the side.

 At last the steak is gone, seriously, I don’t want any steak for awhile!

At last I have polished off much of my perishables, at least as much as one person could.

Unfortunately, it left me with this…..

Seems like a good time to clean my refrigerator, but not tonight.

I think I better do some grocery shopping before my men get home tomorrow….

This is my last daily post (at least for awhile), I will be working at the Montana State Fair tomorrow.

Just a side note, I have a lot of respect for my daughter who has been blogging daily for 3 years now.

Her commitment, well, lets just say she’s a lot better at commitment then her mama.

At last I am done….for now.

    Um, it’s only been a year. And it hasn’t been every single day. Just most days.
