A carb free breakfast for a change from oatmeal sounded good to me this morning.

carbbusters-420x280Carb Buster Breakfast

PREP TIME:
5 Minutes
DIFFICULTY:
Easy
COOK TIME:
10 Minutes
SERVINGS:
1 Servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter Or Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Diced Zucchini
  • 1/2 cup Diced Yellow Squash
  • 1/2 whole Medium Onion, Cut Into Chunks
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 1 whole Tomato, Sliced Thick
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vinegar
  • 1 slice Cheese (Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Swiss, Etc)

INSTRUCTIONS

Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions and cook until 2 to 3 minutes, or until starting to soften. Add the zucchini and squash, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and stir to cook for 3 to 4 minute. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Grill the tomato slices on a grill pan or simply sear them in a hot skillet. Remove and set aside.

Bring a medium saucepan of water to a gentle boil. Add the vinegar. Use a wooden spoon to carefully stir the water into a circular “whirlpool.” Crack one egg into the water and allow it to swirl around in the water until the egg begins to set. Let it stay in the water for 1 minute, then remove it with a slotted spoon and set it on a plate. Repeat with the other egg. If eggs need to be cooked longer, just add them back to the water for 30 seconds at a time.

Spoon the vegetables on a plate or in a bowl and set the eggs on top. Lay the tomato slices on the side. Place the cheese slice on the side so that it starts to soften from the heat.

Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper and serve!

Note: Add a link or two of chicken or pork sausage if desired.

It was a recipe from the Pioneer Woman website that I was thinking of trying as I like poached eggs and veggies are always good for you.

I got my cup full or cozy mug out yesterday and enjoyed some Starbucks dark roast coffee in it.  It just makes for a nice start to the morning.

We have been getting a little snow lately.

It’s a perfect morning for a walk as it’s not bitter cold out.

Usually you will see a couple of Chickadees out and about this time of year.

I would love a view like the above from my yard.  So pretty.

And people have neat ideas on how to attract winter birds to their yards.  I love the above bird feeder idea.

I used to like to go ice skating but I have a weak ankle that got broke years ago and I have to be careful with it.  I still think I would like to go ice skating and it sounds like fun to me.

Bring a few supplies and have a nice little outing.

I saw a recipe for a sugar free frozen hot chocolate that sounded good.  That would be fun to have after working up a thirst in the crisp winter air.  I don’t like sugar and I don’t do the sugar substitutes.

Yankee candles are just plain awesome.  One year I got a sampler of the candles for Christmas.  They have a main store in Deerfield, MA which isn’t too far from where we live.
And that’s my thoughts for today.
