Whenever I was really nervous about a big test or a diving meet in high school, my mom would make me a hearty and delicious breakfast as a special treat.
I’d come downstairs, ready to heat up a packet of instant oatmeal or throw a Toaster Strudel in the toaster, and be wonderfully surprised by a homemade breakfast. It was the best!
One of my favorite breakfasts was her take on a McDonald’s Egg McMuffin®.
She made her own version of the fast-food breakfast staple by toasting an English muffin and adding a slice of Canadian bacon, reduced-fat cheese and an egg on top.
I paid tribute to her modified McMuffin at lunch today.
This breakfast sandwich is so easy to make and definitely takes a lot less time to construct at home than it would to drive through a fast food restaurant and place an order.
By making my own Egg McMuffin, I saved loads of sodium (the original has 820 mg!) and didn’t ingest the “liquid margarine” or “pasteurized processed American cheese” that may be found in McDonald’s version.
On the side I snacked on freshly sliced green pepper and a small banana.
Selecting a Wedding DJ/ Officiant
This weekend Ryan and I would like to schedule some appointments to meet with potential DJs and possible wedding officiants.
If any of you are from the St. Pete/Tampa/Sarasota, Florida area and have any recommendations, please send ’em my way!
For those of you who are married or have been to several weddings, please share your advice with regard to selecting a DJ or wedding officiant!
I must admit, I feel a little clueless about the whole process!
