Day 195: Eggcellent!

So, I had most of the meals for the next week or so scheduled on the calendar, but every time I looked at today, I just kept drawing a blank. I put a lot of thought into what I make on each specific day. It's all very logical. But today's plans were too vague, so I struggled to come up with a suitable menu.

Then I remembered the plethora of eggs in my fridge. So, I began brainstorming dishes centered on eggs. And I searched and googled on line and thumbed through my cookbooks until I finally came up with a combination of recipes that sounded yummy. It ended up being a gigantic omelet baked in the oven. Then I sauteed onions and mushrooms, threw in some chopped ham, and then diced tomatoes right at the end--just to sort of warm them.

Then we cut up the omelet into portions, topped it with the mixture, plus chopped basil for me, plus cheese for every else. Everyone loved it so much, we ended up making a second batch of all of it. HH could not stop telling me how yummy and tasteful it was.

Making something that the entire family loves is a priceless Joyful Moment. And it felt very healthy since most of the ingredients were fresh. The basil was straight from my garden. Yum.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments centered on eggs--or something else equally simple and cheap!

Today was my second super stressful day in a row - And it ended in peace, which also brings joy. But the joy I want to share was giving my baby sister a singing, dancing Frankenstein for her birthday. She LOVES Halloween and she's in love with a guy who lives about 4 hours away, so maybe Frankenstein can keep her company in between her times with her main man. It made me happy to see her smile.

Also, today as I ran my errands, I lost my checkbook, then my camera - TWICE! - then my driver's license. I'm pretty joyful because each lost item is now found. :)
