Have you ever tried to microwave ham or Canadian bacon? Inevitably the meats seem to “pop” in the microwave.
Today a woman even asked me if I was making popcorn for breakfast! Um… no. But that’s a fantastic idea! 😉
I reheated a ham steak I had leftover from last night’s dinner and used it as the core of my breakfast bagelwich.
After spreading one half of an Alternative Bagel with Laughing Cow light Swiss cheese and heatin’ up the ham, I inhaled my bagelwich.
I ate this baby so quickly that when I was done I actually thought to myself, “That was good… I think. I don’t really remember how it tasted.”
Sloooow down, Julie!
Are you a fast eater or a slow eater?
I am a (lightning) fast eater. I really need to learn to savor every bite and take my time when eating meals. Sometimes I just get so excited to dig in that I inhale my food!
Poaching an Egg: Revisited
It was nice to see that I’m not alone in my poached egg failure, though some of you seem to have mastered the art!
Here’s a great tip Melanie shared yesterday:
“I actually found a great way to poach eggs You take some clingwrap (microwave safe) and lay it out over a small bowl, break the egg inside of it and then bunch it up on top, tie a knot in the top part of the clingwrap. Then you just drop it in the water, boil for 6-8 minutes and it comes out perfectly poached. Basically you’re making a little bag for the egg to go in – kind of cheating but it works!”
I love this idea and will definitely use it next time! I’m all for easy-peasy cookin’.
