Oatmeal with Blackberries

9 Aug

I love blackberries. I enjoy oatmeal. So when I had a craving for a sweet breakfast this “morning” -ehm, 11 am-, I decided to put the two together!  I initially couldn’t find the brown sugar, so I decided to get creative and sprinkle some cinnamon on top instead.  It wasn’t exactly the sweet satisfaction I’d been hoping for, especially since the blackberries were a wee bit sour.


As I was putting the oatmeal away, I came across the brown sugar (hurray!!).  I took the box, ran over to my bowl of oatmeal, and sprinkled some on top.  Needless to say, my breakfast was 1000 times better.  My sweet craving was ultimately satisfied.


Mmm breakfast.


Bacon Bacon Bacon

So my Dad’s been getting into all kinds of charcuterie and stuff.  One of the thing’s he’s been working on is… you guessed it… BACON!  The way it’s been working is that the bacon meat sits in spices and yummy goodness and salts for a while in the fridge, and then is fried on the stove.  The product is mouthwateringly fabulous.


On a side note, bacon frying not only produces crunchy bacon, but it creates fantastic bacon grease.  The batch we fried this time yielded a good quarter cup of the stuff! Bacon grease, we have discovered, is magical in that it does not allow anything to stick to pans.  MmmImage

Scrambled Omelette

18 Jul

I love eggs. Especially in the form of an omelette.  However, when such a breakfast doesn’t exactly go as planned (which is usually the case…), I just decide to scramble whatever’s in the pan.  Thus, the scrambled omelette is born.  Now, there’s nothing special about this dish besides the fact that it’s a scrambled conglomeration of eggs and veggies (and in this case, left over duck from a Chinese restaurant).  However, I like to think of a scrambled omelette as a hipster omelette, straying from society and not needing to have that perfect, circular circumference.  It’s weirdness almost makes it better.

I was craving an omelette for breakfast this morning, so I decided to make one.  And one for my mommy and grandma.  I don’t mean to brag, but they were pretty tasty.  I made mine with 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg (enriched with omega-3!), mushrooms, red and green bell peppers, and a scoop of spicy salsa.  This was also a great challenge for me.  In previous attempts to make an omelette, I always end up with scrambled eggs with goodies intertwined in the dish.  However, this time, I was determined to get it into a perfect circle.  The most terrifying part was the flip, because that is where things could have taken a wrong turn.  My mom and grandma’s omelets weren’t perfect, but on my last try, I got it!! Third time’s a charm!


Yummy Breakfast

This morning, I was craving avocado.  So I made scrambled egg whites and mashed up half an avocado and put it on top of a piece of toast! It was surprisingly filling and the chili flakes sprinkled on top were a nice addition to a fairly plain breakfast. Mmm


I love me some avocado


The finished product.

Hello world!

9 Jul

I’ve finally succumbed to the blogging fad.  It only took me about two seconds to realize what I would want to blog about, and that’s most definitely food.  As a second year college student, I have experience with freshman 15 style eating (um, hello late-night pizza deliveries), and this coming fall, I will be living in a dorm with a kitchen! Hurray! I’m used to a big kitchen at home, so I’ll have to get used to the limited (oven) space, but I can’t wait for the many food adventures to come.
