Day 7: Let the Rhythm Move You

7 Jan

Many thanks to Cutter and Dan for being the first donors to my fundraising campaign!! I’ll be bringing some awesome baked goods to kickball next week for these guys. It’s been a long week around here in Slow Cooker Country… so glad it’s the weekend. Tonight was the first night I didn’t cook dinner all week — I had Thai food, and it was delicious. I still cooked a meal from scratch today, though!

Daily Achievement
To change things up a bit, I’m featuring a breakfast. I’ve been making my own breakfasts all week, but they haven’t really been worth talking about. Monday’s frittata was a disaster (I forgot to put the ricotta in so it wasn’t fluffy at all), and Wednesday’s scrambled eggs were kind of gross because I didn’t cook the mushrooms long enough. Eggs are hard, you guys. Maybe I should just stick to hard boiling them. This morning’s egg dish was awesome, though.

One of my favorite meals is the turkey bacon and egg white sandwich from Starbucks, so I decided to make a modified version. In a small tupperware container, I stirred up two eggs, some Lawry’s seasoned salt, and shredded cheese, and then microwaved the whole shebang. Microwaving eggs may sound odd, but it works really well for egg sandwiches. The eggs turn into a omelet, and if you use a round tupperware container, they’re the perfect size and shape to put on top of an English muffin. I’ve also done a version where I add chopped veggies to the egg mixture and eat it alone as a mini omelet. So I had a toasted English muffin, the eggs, and a slice of deli turkey. Super tasty, and even quicker than going to Starbucks.

Song of the Day
C + C Dance Factory – Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now). This weekend, my kickball league is having their kickoff party, and the theme is the 90s, so I’ll be featuring 90s songs all weekend. I didn’t really get into current music until the late 90s when I started watching MTV and listening to the radio, but since those days, I’ve listened to a lot of early 90s hits, and there’s some good stuff there. This song in particular is one of my favorites… how can anyone sit still while listening to it?
