I woke-up yesterday like normal; sleepy, grumpy, and tired of living in a construction zone. The hardwood floors are being redone, which means they were stripped of the old varnish/stain (LOTS of dust), and now we are in the stages of staining some sections and applying varnish to other sections. The beach house smells so bad!
Here is a glimpse of life with floors that are being stained & varnished. If you need to go to the washroom you have to go out the back door, walk around the outside of the house and enter at the front door, skip across the front hallway to the dried hallway floor and then enter the washroom. I’m going to have to endure one to two more days of this. On top of this I have to try to keep a curious cat off of the floors.
Today’s breakfast reflects my life. Deconstructed. Take what was going to be the ingredients for an omelette and deconstruct them into a new remodeled version. Modern, like the buzz word I have been hearing for 2 weeks!
· 2 slices of bacon
· Extra virgin olive oil (or use the bacon fat)
· Veggies of your choice (I used onions, red peppers, and broccoli)
· 2 eggs
1. Cook the bacon.
2. Slice the veggies. I used a mandoline to create thinly sliced veggies. Very quick too!
3. Pour olive oil in a frying pan or use the leftover bacon fat. Lightly sauté the veggies and add your preferred seasoning. I used onion powder.
4. When the veggies are still crisp but slightly cooked form two piles of veggies in the frying pan. Put a slice of cooked bacon on top of the veggies. Crack an egg over the middle of the pile.
5. Season your eggs. I used salt & pepper.
6. I turned my frying pan to medium-low. Cook your eggs to your desired doneness.
7. Use one or a combination of two spatulas to remove your deconstructed omelette.
8. Eat the modernized omelette!
