I yearned for something quite filling and nutritious. I wasn’t in the mood for oatmeal and berries. And for sometime I’ve taken a break from Cheerios and other dried cereals; much too sugary for me.

Grabbed hold of my grill pan and let it slowly come to warmth under low heat. I made sure to spray it with Pam. Yellow squash and a sweet tomato had my name written all over them. Did a quick slicing of them, brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. In just a few minutes my grilled veggies were ready for filling action.

I wasn’t quite finished; so, I decided to saute a few slices of onions with a pinch of salt and pepper. In no time they became oh, so sweet and set them aside with a couple of slices of provolone cheese.

On a separate burner, a hot skillet with a drizzle of olive oil was waiting for me (well, for my egg batter). Beforehand, I made sure to season with a pinch of salt and cracked black pepper along with a few pieces finely chopped parsley. I didn’t add milk; instead I added a splash of cold water to batter and whisked it with a fork.

In no time my egg batter was ready for its fillings. I laid my provolone cheese first. All this was on low heat. Then came my the veggies and then I did my flip. I knew it; there would be a little oozing. That was quite okay.

Guys, my grilled veggie and cheesy omelet was just what I needed. I never had to do it; however, I toasted a very small whole wheat bagel with a smear of strawberry spread. It hit the right spot. Hmmm, to say I was happy is such an understatement. I was over the moon!

BERRIES AND EGGS ON THE OUTSKIRTS

Guys, it was divine on the outdoors. Temperatures were flirting in the mid 70’s. So, I decided to perch myself on my back patio. What can I say? It was a great decision. For me,¬† It doesn’t take much to be happy. Sometimes, it’s the simple things within one’s reach.

Anyway guys, I made yours truly a creamy omelet with a few pieces of left-over sweet potato/apple waffles. And of course, as you can see a serving of black/strawberries with a sprig of mint. And, it’s always great with a drink of coffee.

Guys, life is wonderful. Be kind to your loved-ones as well as your beautiful palates.

SOMETIMES, YOU JUST HAVE TO CREATE A PICNIC ON THE INDOORS

I like to take advantage of the beautiful Fall weather here in Florida when I can. Therefore, a few days ago when the forecast called for a cool and dry week-end, I was elated. You see, it doesn’t take much for me to be happy. Moreover, living here in So. Florida, U.S.A, you take the cool weather as you can as majority of the year is quite warm and humid.

As a result, I planned on having my breakfast/brunch on the back patio of my dwelling; a picnic of sort. This is where I can seize a little serenity and get in touch with nature. I love to behold the beautiful and carefree ducks and ducklings paddle along the man-made waterway. Early in the morn, it’s quite lovely and heart-warming to hear only the sweet sounds of the water and the music from the trees.

So, I was quite disappointed because¬† the last couple of days, So. Florida has been flirting with the eighties in temperatures. Moreover, the humidity has been in the high percentage. Even for Florida, these weather conditions are a bit unseasonable. Anyway, I didn’t dwell too much on it. I had to find a way to enjoy the morn.

Lo and behold I came up with a plan. You see, sometimes, one has to improvise. Instead of a picnic on my back patio, I decided to bring it within. I grabbed me a comfy throw and spread it across my living room rug. I placed my thermostat on a comfortable cool 70 degree.

Then, I proceeded to make yours truly an omelet along with bite size pieces of left-over ham. Yes, the one I did with rum/brandy glaze. I served my omelet with rye toast along with fresh cranberry spread. I had some fresh/sweet strawberries I fetched from the store the other day. I added a few raspberries and orange wedges. Still had a little hot chocolate, so I decided to rock it as well.

Guys, I perched on the carpet and listened to some inspirational messages from the ‘tube’; after all, it’s Sunday. Just as the preacher/speaker said, I’ve nothing to worry about because the Good Lord takes care of us all. Now, all I needed to do was to make note in my journal and grabbed me a little shut-eye in the aftermath.
