Sandi gave a great tip about eating dinner leftovers. I have done this many times and there’s nothing wrong with it. There are lots of good egg ideas. I know many of you don’t like eggs. I am fussy about eggs too. I really only like them when I make them, and they can’t have any brown or crusty parts on them. Poached are my favorite, but it takes some time to do it on the stove and I don't always get the results I like with the microwave poacher. Sometimes too runny, and then others too cooked. I like a runny yoke and I found a new, easy way to get the results I like..
|Start with a small non stick skillet. Add some water and bring to a low simmer.|
|Gently add two eggs. Crack them in a small bowl to make it easy to slide into pan.|
|Keep water at a low simmer|
|Add a lid to build up some steam.|
|I use a spoon to spoon some water over the yolk.|
|This is what it ends up looking like after a minute or two. Use a slotted spatula to lift out.|
|This is the finished product served with some flax seed bread and some asparagus leftover from dinner the night before.|
Here are some great ways to prepare eggs:
Scrambled eggs w/cheese and spinach plus 2 strips of bacon...throw it in a low carb wrap if heading out the door
Microwave scrambled egg in a mug. Great combinations are smoked gouda and artichokes, cheddar and diced chili’s, or a little cream, or sour cream mixed in with any type of cheese.
Fry up a Johnsonville brat, add scrambled eggs and some fresh spinach.
Fry a potato, add 2 jimmy dean sausage patties, then add an egg, letting it cook up a little so the yoke breaks out over the potatoes
Toast some flax or low carb bread, top with some grated cheddar and a sprinkle of chia seeds, add some fresh spinach and top with two poached eggs.

Thought for the day:
“When you wake up in the morning,
Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”
