Tonight, I couldn’t be bothered to come up with a fancy meal. I was tired and hungry. The chicken breast I planned on cooking wasn’t completely thawed yet and I didn’t want to deal with it. I looked around the fridge and decided to make one of my favorite post-workout breakfasts, on a smaller scale.
I grabbed the bell peppers that I always keep sliced in the fridge and chopped them. I chopped a small piece of onion as well and sliced two portobello mushrooms (I bought 6 of them for under $2 this weekend in the reduced section of my local market!). I threw all the vegetables in the pan with a little bit of coconut oil. Once it started getting brown and juicy, I cracked an egg right in the middle, flipped it halfway through, and voilà! My dinner was ready!
I did worry about my egg not being cooked enough. It looked nice and pretty on the outside but once I started eating it, I noticed the egg white was still a little bit snotty. I wasn’t sure if it was safe to eat it or not. But I figured, if Gaston from Beauty and the Beast can crack 5 dozens of raw eggs directly into his mouth, then a slightly uncooked egg shouldn’t kill me, right? I know, I know, I need better medical sources AND I seriously need to learn to cook eggs properly! 🙂
Tonight’s dinner was very minimal, no spices were involved. I was simply enjoying the natural flavors of the dish. The yolk became a “sauce” for the vegetables. Breakfast for dinner really can be good once in a while! 🙂
