Weekday breakfast

I tried something new last night. Because mornings in our house are short. Meaning we all like to sleep as late as possible before getting ready for work and school.

I chopped up some fresh spinach and wilted it in a pan with a little bit of olive oil. Then I cracked 7 eggs (that's what I had), added salt, pepper and the spinach and beat them to mix together.

I sprayed my muffin tin, wrapped a piece of turkey bacon (from Sam's) on the inside of each opening, filled the center with about a 1/4 cup (give or take) of the egg mixture, topped with a pinch of reduced fat fiesta mix cheese and baked for 20 mins on 350.

This morning I popped two in the microwave for 30 seconds and VOILA - breakfast in a hurry, healthy and on the go!

I think about these things

This morning nothing was doing but I have some glazed donut holes with my coffee. I parallel parked right smack at the front door of the town donut shop, scrounged around in my purse for cash, and just as I was going to slam my locked car door, I noticed my keys laying in the passenger side seat. I snatched them up and threw up a prayer of thankfulness to the good Lord.

Because the last thing a chubby girl who lives in a little town of 1200 folks wants to do is lock her keys in her car. Before dawn. In front of the donut shop. Amen?
