Skillet Egg with Spinach

Something about a hot skillet makes everything yummy and comforting. Today, I’m giving my body a break from a morning workout, going to just take a deep breath and slow it down for a change.  I’m not going to grab spirulina water for breakfast and run out to get workout done, run around like a mad woman wearing myself down. I’m going to make myself a ‘proper’ breakfast (of course after I make one for my hubby and pack snacks for his work day ) and take in this beautiful morning with my lovely puppies….only if we had a few chickens roaming in the backyard supplying us with endless fresh eggs….Hmmm…ok, I would like to raise some  backyard chickens….here we go, one more thing added to the WWL (Wife’s Wish List)…..Remember, Happy wife = Happy life! …amen.

1 organic cage free egg
1 1/2 cup spinach
1 small garlic (smashed and finely chopped)
1/4 onion (chopped)
1/2 lemon juice
Cayenne pepper, sea salt, black pepper for seasoning
A piece of your favorite bread for the ‘dipping’ pleasure

1. In a hot skillet sautee onion till soft
2. Add garlic
3. Add spinach and cover the skillet with a lid a few seconds till spinach get wilted. Squeeze half of lemon and season with salt & pepper.
4. Tap spinach mixture with a spoon so it has a nice little dent for the egg to sit on.
5. Carefully crack an egg onto spinach mixture and let it sit 2 mins
6. Place the skillet under broiler 3-4 mins till egg white sets but yolk still soft. (I find cooking skillet eggs in the oven bake setting makes eggs rubbery. So I prefer broil setting!)
7. Sprinkle with sea salt and cayenne pepper
8. Here comes the best part : toast your favorite bread and go ahead dip it into egg yolk. Ohhhhh yeeeessss.


Afternoon nap time before their belly clocks kick in around 5:30pm

In case you missed it….’Teach me how to buggie’  You see the last picture of 4 puppies, it’s hard to see but if you look very very closely, there is one with green collar on way to the right. yes, that’s her….we named her coconut….I swear I just wanted to hold her and  then put her back into the kennel….which didn’t go quite well.


Busy day for Buggie

    Arborio rice is an Italian short-grain rice. It is named after the town of Arborio, in the Po Valley, where it is grown. When cooked, the rounded grains are firm, creamy, and chewy, due to its higher amylopectin starch content;[1] thus, it has a starchy taste but blends well with other flavours. It is used to make risotto, although Carnaroli, Maratelli and Vialone Nano are sometimes used to prepare the dish. Arborio rice is also used for rice pudding.:

    Most cultivated varieties of cayenne, Capsicum annuum, can be grown in a variety of locations and need approximately 100 days to mature. Peppers prefer warm, moist, nutrient-rich soil in a warm climate. :;^..
