What I Ate Wednesday – January 8 2014

breakfast was half an everything bagel with fluffy eggs and a slice of melty muenster cheese
plus a banana for good measure
Things started to get a bit batty over here so lunch was the easiest thing I could get my hands on at the moment: a bowl of swiss muesli with coconut milk and a homemade carrot-walnut muffin
snacks were of the veggie variety:
broccoli, celery, and green pepper with creamy caesar dressing as a dip
dinner was a cold weather favorite:
My infamous tortilla soup!  I’ve been threatened by friends and family in regards to posting the recipe in a timely manner so I might have to bypass the cutesy photo shoot and post the recipe before I can get some blog worthy shots of it — I fear what may happen if I don’t comply =) Stay tuned!
The day ended on a sweet note:
I’m starting to think every day of eats needs to end this way.  These are the best chocolate chip cookies of my life!  Don’t go getting your panties in a bunch; recipe to come!

You are, in fact, correct in worrying about what may happen if you continue to withhold. Recipes, of course.

Fancy Nancy

You had me at a bagel sandwich!!!


OMG, that bagel… looks so good!!! Happy Wednesday!!

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

bahaha I’ll keep that in mind =) I’ll never hold out on you!

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Sure thing! Here’s my favorite technique:

Crack your egg(s) in a mug, whisk vigorously with a fork to combine the yolk and white and, after whisking, add a teeny tiny splash of milk to the cup. Next, prep a frying pan with a little oil and turn heat on to medium. Once the pan is hot, add you whisked egg and once the egg starts to thicken, fold it once or twice and flip. Allow the other side to cook and flip again. I keep scraping and folding until the eggs start to get super fluffy and tall, then switch it to low heat so they don’t brown [*I’m not a fan of browned eggs! Not evah!*] You cant mess this up! Even if the eggs start to separate or some breaks off, you can just fold it into a little tower of fluffy eggs and pile it on your sandwich. This technique gives the egg the same fluffy height of restaurant egg sandwiches without microwaving [*which, most places simply nuke the eggs*] So yeah, super lengthy explanation for super easy eggs. Haha.

I made this last night with enough for leftovers because I knew it would be fantastic and it was! I rarely review recipes but this one was too good to pass up! Thanks! 🙂

Klmzy Kiera

Is the swiss meusli homemade?

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Hey Kiera! It’s made by the grocery store I have here in NC – Harris Teeter. Kellog’s also makes a really yummy blend but they are a bit more expensive. Essentially it contains rolled oats, rice puffs, bran flakes, corn flakes, dates, and raisins. I’ve been hooked on it since I was little! =)



I tried these this morning and they were absolutely delicious!!
