I hope that you have all been enjoying this lovely day. Today was one of those busy days for me. Elle has been helping me do laundry all day in preparation for our trip to Tennessee. I mean it, she really does help stuffing everything into the washing machine, turning the knobs, and watching as the clothes start spinning…if only I could get her to fold! Soon, my little one, you will be put to work, mwahahaha! (That was my evil laugh.)
You would think that by how many times I’ve travelled (A WHOLE LOT!) that I would be a pro packer by now. Unfortunately that is not the case. I always wait until the last minute and always have a dreadful feeling that I have forgotten something, and I tend to overpack. When I was headed home from England one time, I had 2 suitcases (the limit was one free of charge) and they were both overweight. Now, there is whole other story leading up to how I landed into this predicament that I will share another time, but to cut to the end, I had to break out the sad-girl tears and tell a convincing sob story about how my wallet was stolen and I didn’t have a way to pay for them (I really didn’t have any money at the time). Voila, 2 overweight bags checked for free! You’d think that I would learn from that lesson. I’ll try to pack light this trip.
Anyway, among getting everything ready, I still had to find something to make for dinner. Tonight’s inspiration? Dr. Seuss. I kept things light tonight and made some Green Eggs & Ham! I served up these omelettes with some veggies and hummus and it just hit the spot!
Here is what you’ll need:
-1/4 cup lightly packed thawed, chopped frozen spinach (or a handful of fresh, chopped spinach)
-a few slices of cooked ham
-2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
-salt and pepper
Whisk two eggs in a bowl until completely blended. Mix in chopped spinach.
Spray a medium-sized pan with non-stick spray, or coat with vegetable oil. Heat pan on medium-high heat and pour eggs and spinach into pan so they are covering it.
Let eggs cook for about 3 minutes. On one half of the eggs, sprinkle the cheese, and spread the slices of ham. Flip the half of eggs without ham over, so it is covering the half with the ham. Let cook on low for another 3 minutes.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve while it’s hot!
I hope you like them, Sam-I-am!
