Microwave egg omelet

So FYI you can make microwaved omelets!!! I scrambled up one egg in a glass bowl added bacon, shredded chicken, salt and pepper ... Put it in the microwave for 1 minute topped with cheese then back in for 30 more seconds and TA DA!!!

UPDATE (July 27,2012): Looks like I was ahead of the trend. . .was watching doctor oz yesterday and he had a guest on that gave two recipes including microwaved eggs. . . here are the recipes that were featured on the show (
Mediterranean Breakfast Pizza Ingredients 1 whole wheat flat bread pita
1 tbsp low-fat cream cheese

Directions Spread one side of pita with cream cheese. Put pita on a microwave safe plate. Place a handful of spinach on top. Top spinach with tomato slices and garlic. Crack egg in the center of the pita. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, depending on how you like your egg cooked.

Unpacking Fun

When I thought packing and moving our stuff was the hard part I was completely wrong . . . UN-packing has got to be the most annoying, frustrating, and hardest part of moving!!! I guess that's why so many people have a story about boxes packed away in a closest or garage that they still haven't opened years after moving. I want to say that I hope that won't be us but while moving I did find a few boxes that never opened after the first move . . .

Anyways, along with the unpacking we have been doing a lot of furniture shopping and with the weather getting nicer we have been going to the gym a lot more leaving (as always) very little time for much else including cooking so meals lately have been even quicker and more simple

For Breakfast I have been using the microwave to cook eggs and bacon -- leaving time to multitask and cleaning is super easy
Eggs --> Crack on egg into a microwave safe dish scramble adding a dash of milk and salt and pepper then microwave for 1 minute


"The Best Thing I Ever Made: Sandwiches"

This Morning on Food Network we were watching "The Best Thing I Ever Made: Sandwiches" which got me thinking I should share the Best Sandwich I Ever Made with all of you

Eddie's Roast Beef Sandwich

-1 loaf of un-sliced bread
-Minced garlic
-1 package of sandwich style roast beef
-Swiss Cheese

1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2) Cut Loaf of Bread in Half separating top from bottom to make one big sandwich
3) Spread Butter on both sides of the bread followed by minced garlic and place in oven for 10 minutes
4) While bread is in the oven separate the roast beef slices and put them into a frying pan over medium heat until meat is browned (usually about 10 minutes)
5) Take bread out of the oven and top both sides with Swiss cheese
6) Put the roast beef on the bottom half and place sandwich back in the oven leaving both sides open for about 5 minutes or until cheese melts
7) Put the top on the sandwich and leave in the oven for another 10 minutes

Wine and Cheese (Dip) Night

Last night me and Eddie FINALLY had the house to ourselves and to celebrate we rented a movie (GONE) popped a bottle of champagne and we made one of Eddie's favorite appetizers Chili con Queso or Cheese Dip . . .classy huh?
