From Lauren With Luggage!

 

I saw this post a couple of weeks ago and thought what a great combination for an omelet!  The spinach with the pop of flavor of grape tomatoes.  I looks so refreshing.  A perfect breakfast for the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  Give it a try!

The Easiest Huevos Rancheros

From The Kitchen Beet!

 

Growing up, we rarely had anything Mexican or Tex Mex.  Occasionally, we would get tacos from Pepe’s.  Or Mom would make the packaged Ortega’s tacos.  Bland and boring.  I didn’t discover real Mexican cooking until I started dating Jim.  I didn’t know what I was missing!

 

Heuvos Rancheros was one of the first Mexican dishes I ever had.  Jim actually made it for me.  Delicious!  This recipe reminds me of a happy time.

When you are a vegetarian, it’s pretty hard to find a lot of options to eat when at parties and such.  Usually it’s just cheese and crackers.  Sometimes some one brings deviled eggs.  If you are lucky, you might get a salad.

 

I end up eating before I go, just to make sure.  I have brought dishes like my cold noodles with peanut sauce.  That gets eaten pretty quickly.  One time, it was gone before I could get a serving.  I think that even meat eaters get tired of meat!  Lol!

 

I saw this quiche recipe and thought oh yeah!  Little bites of deliciousness.  And so beautiful looking.  Presentation is important.  I think I will be making this for my next pot luck!  I wonder if it will be gone before I can get a bite?

Avocado Hash & More Brunch Recipes!

avocado hash

Growing up, I learned to love breakfast and brunch meals.  Money was tight in my family.  With six people, my parents stretched a dollar a long way.  When money was really tight, my mom would serve breakfast dishes for lunch or dinner.  This hash dish was reminiscent of one my mom would make.  She would have the sauteed vegetables.  And eggs back then was pretty cheap.  A good protein boost, that didn’t cost too much.  Read the rest of this entry »

You all know that I love omelets.  So, when I was this recipe, I was intrigued.  It’s so beautiful.  And with Thanksgiving coming up, the sweet potato is right in season.  I think I would call this a frittata than an omelet.  This would be great for breakfast & dinner.  Or I don’t know about you, but I am going to do a lot of pot luck dinners for the season.  This would make a great addition!

We Have An Egg Shortage! 13 Egg Substitutes

Posted on Updated on

Egg Shortage
I read this article in CNN in June surrounding all the hoopla about an egg shortage:

 

Texas-based supermarket owner H-E-B recently announced it is limiting the number of cartons of eggs its customers can buy at all its stores.

“Our goal is to hold prices as low as possible and level out the volatility in the egg market for our customers. Posting limits on the purchase of eggs is a proactive move to keep prices low and availability strong for Texas families,” said H-E-B spokesperson Dya Campos in an e-mail.

The supply issues are forcing some restaurants to cut back on the number of eggs they use too.

I thought much ado over nothing.  I was so wrong.  I had to pick up eggs from the store the other day.  The generic brand cost as much as Eggland’s Best eggs!  $3/ dozen.  I love my omelets and egg burritos.  I wasn’t about to cut those out.  I figure that I needed to find some way with all the baking and cooking I do to substitute for those eggs.  As they say, Google is your friend.  I found an article that give you 13 ways to substitute your eggs in recipes:

A Delicious Idea For Sunday Brunch ~ French Toast!

Posted on Updated on

French Toast

After submitting to the Credit Crunch Munch I started thinking about my mom & dad raising 4 kids.  My parents were by no means comfortably off.   My three brothers ate like they had a hole in their leg.  Nothing seemed to fill them up.  I remember that they could go through a gallon of milk in one day.  My oldest brother would chug down the milk.  So my very frugal mom(Depression kid) had to find a way to make a lot more out of what we had. She focused saving money with food.    One of the tricks that she use to do was to serve breakfast for dinner.  It was mainly things like scrambled eggs and toast.  Or pancakes.  Our big favorite was French Toast!  Keep Reading!
