So, I went and did what the powers to be want me to do. Guys, although temperatures and humidity were over the moon, I actually completed my workout. Wow, my poor skin was melting. You know something, I do think I love to break a sweat. My endorphins were kicking and so was my appetite. And, guess what? I felt like having something simple and quite filling. Okay, I just didn’t feel like making a healthy smoothie. God knows I’ve had my quota for the week. As I peeked at my frozen blue and strawberries, I could tell they too needed a break.

As I made my way down to the light blue carton in the refrigerator, I got an epiphany. And that’s how I decided to make yours truly a couple fried eggs. Without a doubt, eggs have gotten a bad rap. In the past, many so called experts claim that they contribute to high cholesterol. And, I get it,because of DNA, some of us do have to be cognizant by what we include in the diet. The fact is that eggs are loaded with beneficial vitamins, minerals, lutein, and many other nutrients that are excellent for the body. 

Anyway, as I retrieved my couple of eggs, I gleefully placed them on my counter to come to room temperature. I also nabbed a piece of cheddar cheese and the last English muffin I had on hand. After a quick shower session, I made my way to my kitchen. I allowed my skillet to warm with a drizzle olive oil and a pat of butter on low to medium heat.  I then cracked my eggs and watched them set. I then sprinkle a pinch of salt and a little cracked black pepper. Oh, I love cracked black pepper. After I flipped each egg, I placed a small slice of cheddar cheese on each egg.

Ohhh, and then the hour arrived, on toasted English muffin, I slathered on a teaspoon of strawberry preserve. I’m afraid sometimes,  I’m a little way out, I love savory and sweet all mingled  up. I then placed my fried egg on each piece of toasted muffin and watched the cheese slowly melted on my fried eggs. Hmm,each bite was divine, I was in heaven!

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
