I had the luxury of sleeping in until 7:00 this morning! Mix that with going to bed at 9:30 (I know I’m an old woman) means I got a full 9 ½ hours of glorious sleep!! Boy did I need to catch up on that much needed amount of sleep. J Now I am well rested and pumped for the rest of my day.
I love sleeping in and having a little extra time in the morning, this usually means I get to prepare an extra special breakfast. I had a small toasted Cinnamon Spice Bagel w/ a tiny smear of Smart Balance, grapes, pineapple and a Veggie Scrambled Omelet.
Growing up my Dad always made us scrambled omelets and for the longest time I just thought that’s how all omelets were made. When ever I would order omelets from restaurants it was never the same as Dad made and I would feel so disappointed. I don’t think it was until high school that I realized the difference between Dad’s ‘omelets’ and restaurant omelets. Now I’ve learned when I order from a restaurant to just ask for them scrambled to come out the way Daddy makes them.
This morning my scrambled omelet consisted of 1 whole egg, 2 egg whites, a splash of milk, ricotta cheese, garlic, onion, spinach and tomato. I added the vegetables into a hot pan and let them heat until the spinach was wilted, while I was waiting on the spinach I mixed the eggs, milk and ricotta together in a separate bowl. Once the veggies were cooked, I poured the egg mixture on top and just kept moving around so the eggs don’t stick to the pan until they are no longer runny. A perfect omelet just like Dad used to make. J
I only have 6 more hours of work ahead of me and then I’m heading over to Caitlin’s for spinning, yoga and pumpkin carving! I have been putting the idea in her head to mooch off of her gym membership for a couple of weeks now and I am glad it finally clicked. Hey, what are good friends for? J I have not been to a spinning or yoga class since college so I am very excited to reintroduce myself tonight! And of course it is not Halloween with out some pumpkin carving!! It’s going to be a great ‘Friday’ night and the perfect kick off to my 3 day weekend. 😉
