“I love the smell of possibility in the morning.”

For those of you who have been following, my water and whine posts have reared their ugly little heads lately.   My kitchen is undergoing a minor remodel and I’m without a sink, countertop, and running water in the kitchen for twenty-nine more days.  But who’s counting!

After a few attempts at pretending that meals would proceed as usual, I gave up and bought a few dozen microwaveable paper plates and bowls.  And then I stumbled upon information that urged people to consume three eggs for breakfast.  It seems that eggs are loaded with good protein and will ward off hunger, which should lead to gooder health and weight loss.  I love eggs.  I’m there!

My favorite way to eat eggs is a modified omelette/scramble that has cheese in it.  Additional meats and veggies are nice, but cheese is mandatory for my happiness.  Yes, I’m shallow.

So the task at hand was to see if I could make a scramble/omelette in a paper bowl for breakfast in less than two minutes while creating only minimal dishes to wash.  Rejoice with me!  Besides the bowl I only needed a widemouth canning jar, my magic wand, and a small knife to slice off a hunk of cheese.  If anyone is watching I also need a fork.  While eating alone, eggs become a finger food.

At the end of the minute I flip the eggs over to expose the damp bottom and place the cheese on top.  Another 30 seconds in the microwave and breakfast is served!


Now isn’t that the ugliest scramble/omelette you’ve ever seen?  Cheese on top can easily be used as camouflage.  If you really want to impress someone, simply whip in some diced veggies and bacon with the eggs.  However, if that’s all it takes to impress the people in your life, you might give that some thought.  (Did I say that out loud?)  I might have to revisit my resolution on sarcasm.  Or not.
