Those boy scouts were clearly onto something when they coined the motto “Be Prepared.”
It's become our kitchen mantra, as having a go-to dinner for when we work late, are totally uninspired or lazy, or forget to go to the grocery store (sadly it happens more often than I’d like to admit) is our key to avoiding the siren song of chicken nuggets.
Our quick-food panacea is without a doubt eggs. We love them…from our head down to our legs even (sorry I couldn’t resist) + there’s nothing easier to fix based on everyone’s particular preference. I can just whip a few together with some sea salt, a little fresh cracked pepper + some Spike (so good), melt a little pat of butter and then slowly (slow is the key) scramble them over medium-low heat. Right before they finish cooking, I throw in a handful of grated sharp white cheddar or parmesan and serve them up to Bryan and the girlies with buttered wheat toast.
While they’re happily munching away (usually coming back for seconds and thirds), I poach or fry an egg for myself and do a little open faced sandwich on toast. To keep things interesting, I switch up the cheese, sometimes throw on a thin little piece of ham I've warmed in the pan, maybe add a little tomato salad...
But no matter what, it’s always good.
