OMG how did I never do this before? Stream I Love Lucy on my computer while working. SCORE!
Seriously. How could you NOT want to eat this for breakfast?
Recipe found here.
Working from home definitely has its luxuries: I take pilates sessions at noon when the studio is empty and quiet, I can run errands whenever I need without having to “clock out”, I work with my dogs at my feet and, oh, I get to watch Dr. Oz at 4pm! Yes, I’ve become addicted to Doc Oz and find myself glued to the TV set to see what health news he is going to share.
Yesterday’s episode focused on gallstones, which was horrific and intriguing all at once. Inspired to eat a little healthier, I whipped up a nice Italian omelette for Chris this morning (no meat!) and it was delicious.
Ingredients: 2 egg whites + 1 egg yolk, handful of spinach, one tomato chopped (I used a San Marzano from our veggie garden), ricotta cheese, salt + pepper, a tiny bit of olive oil
What to do: Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. In a non-stick pan, saute a handful of spinach in a little bit of olive oil and season with a little bit of salt and pepper. Add the chopped tomato and cook a little bit more. Whisk the eggs together and then pour over the spinach and tomato. Add a few dollops of ricotta cheese and then transfer the pan to the top shelf of the oven. Let it bake for 5 minutes or less (watch it, depending on your oven). Remove from oven and add a few more dollops of the ricotta cheese.
Thank you, Martha Stewart, for this.
Chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside. Sweet but not too sweet. Click here to enjoy!
One of my childhood best pals, Nikki, who I met when I was just nine years old and living in Hong Kong came to visit LA this past weekend. I haven’t seen this girl in 15 years! And it was like nothing ever changed between us…we chatted like we had just seen each other yesterday. That’s how you know that you’re great friends. You don’t have to see each other often, but when you do, it’s like nothing has changed.
Nikki randomly found my blog last year (ps: she lives in Hong Kong) through someone else’s blogroll and has been a dedicated reader ever since. So when I saw her this past weekend, one of the first things she said was “You need to update your blog!” I agree. I haven’t touched this thing in ages so this post is just for her! And it’s about what to do with leftover hamburger buns…um, make a breakfast sandwich, hello! Scramble some eggs, throw on turkey and cheese and heat in pan panini-style.
