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.
