This breakfast casserole wasn’t supposed to happen, but here it is. I was retrieving an egg for something else, and the entire rest of the carton slipped and fell to the ground – 5 cracked eggs in total. Not wanting to waste perfectly good materials on the trash, I scooped them up (they were pretty clean cracks – very little to clean up!) and made a plan.
I threw a couple sweet potatoes that were on their last legs into the pressure cooker and set to work on slicing up some leftover Italian-style chicken sausage that I hadn’t had a chance to use yet. 15 minutes later, the sausage was sliced, the eggs were beaten (along with some additional egg whites since I hate the taste of the yolks), and my sweet potatoes were cooked through. I added some nutritional yeast to the eggs and threw everything together in a pan, added a little grated parmesan cheese, rosemary, and black pepper to the pan, and then threw the pan into the oven.
Thirty minutes later, my breakfast for the rest of the week emerged. It smells pretty amazing, and I’m glad I was able to take something ugly (cracked eggs) and turn it into something delicious. :)
Thank goodness for Thanksgiving leftovers, otherwise I’d be starving right now. We had a very busy night at work, and there was no time to stop and eat. Lucky me, I filled up on turkey and all the fixins right before leaving my house, so I was good to go.
Side note: ever notice how pale/brown Thanksgiving dinner is? Weird. And delicious.
Puppies be strugglin’ today! They (we) stayed up late, woke up early, and played all day long.
At one point, we (the humans) stopped at Target and found little trapper hats for the pups. They weren’t the cheapest, but they are most definitely the cutest. Plus, we needed something festive for the annual family Christmas card. When we got home, we had the pups test out the hats. Tank was rather patient with his, but Taco was not a fan. I mean, obviously, just look at his face. You can practically hear him whining, “But mo-ooooom!”
Despite the fact that we made them put on funny little hats for 0.0003 seconds, they were really sad to see me leave tonight. At one point, I had my jacket on and I was standing in the living room and Taco flipped out. He wouldn’t stop staring at me and barking until I sat down, and then he climbed all over me, sat completely on top of me (like, his full weight. He’s not a tiny pup!), and snarled at Tank when he came close. It seems Taco gets easily attached. It was sad to leave them both tonight. :(
But they’ll be seeing me again in a couple weeks, so at least they won’t be upset for long! In the meantime, maybe they’ll get used to the feeling of awesome adorable hats on their heads and they’ll look forward to sitting still for their picture? (I know, there’s 0% chance, but a girl can hope, right?) :)
** Five Things Friday will return next week! Puppies > writing, any day of the week. :)
Happy Thanksgiving from my favorite turkey(s) to you! (You can’t really see him, but Tank is right beside Taco.)
I’m super-duper excited to have the next two days off of work, but I’m also a little jazzed to head to work on Monday because of these guys. Yep, I bought myself some [cheap] boxing gloves and they arrived today. Knowing how susceptible I am to breaking bones and the like, I figured the gloves would be a good idea. :)
Who knows, maybe I’ll even get a chance to test them out at the gym tomorrow before heading to my parents’ house. Now I just need someone to show me how to throw a punch!
When we moved from the 24th floor to the 21st, we were pretty pumped because that meant we were moving away from all the incredibly noisy and bothersome construction in the building.
WELP, it was a nice few weeks of quiet!
The construction demons are following us around it seems, and we have another 8 weeks or so to get our fill of hammers, drills, dust, and vacuums. I see a lot of working from home happening in December. ;)
