Easter Brunch Workin' Overtime


Good (rainy) morning!!

I got a text at 5:40 this morning from my mom saying “Raining!” meaning, no walk…I was a little bummed because I had a few pieces fair amount of Easter candy yesterday and I wanted to start the day off right…but I got to sleep in 30 extra minutes – nice!

After Easter brunch yesterday, my mom sent us all pakcing with a nice big hunk of ham (sorry for the visual, vegetarians) and I knew exactly what I was going to make with it…ham and cheese egg scrambles!!! And that’s exactly what I made this morning :D My breakfast had:

  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • Splash of water
  • S&P
  • 2 oz cubed ham

I added the mixture to a skillet with about ½ teaspoon of butter and a shot of Pam, scrambled that baby up in about 2 minutes, topped it with shredded cheddar cheese – and breakfast was ready in no time!



Seriously…seriously, I love ham. It was so smoky and salty and coupled with the melty cheese and fluffy eggs – it was honestly one of the best egg dishes I’ve had in a really long time (sorry asparagus strata)…and it was made using leftovers! Can’t beat that :) Served it with a nice little bowl of grapes.

Ugh today, I’m wearing a wool sweater with a three quarter length shirt underneath it, so there’s a quarter of my arms that are in direct contact with the sweater…I can tell this is going to be a problem all day.

Do you ever get to work, look down and think, what in the H was I thinking when I walked out my door this morning? Last week I wore dark denim trousers with a dark denim jacket and didn’t realize it until about 11:00…ahh!! Happy Monday friends!

    Oh man, that egg scramble looks SOOOO good. If I didn’t already have oatmeal cooking on the stove right now I’d make that for breakfast with my leftover ham!!

    that egg scramble does look good. i’m already considering doing scrambled eggs tomorrow morning since I’ve got doctors appointments all day tomorrow– means i can eat breakfast at home instead of at work!

    I do have those days when I go, UGH why am i wearing this! It’s worse when i pack stuff for the gym and shower at the gym, and then I’m wishing i had something else to wear!

    I try to lay my clothes out the night before so I don’t have to think. My problem comes more when I run out of clean clothes. Sometimes I end up wearing pajamas to the gym – short with big cows on them. I try not to get close enough to other people for them to see me.
