Very Early Spring Breakfast

Spring you say??? Well it will be here in Louisiana before you know it.  Already we have had some very warm days. And before long there will be a few nippy mornings and then those too will be passed.  I always consider late February to be the beginning of our Spring.  If for no other reason, by the time the calendar Spring arrives, it is hot many days.

I enjoyed a fresh spinach omelet for breakfast this morning.  I have lots of actual work to do again today so I thought breakfast might be a good way to start my day.

I opened the frig door and there was that HUGE bag of fresh spinach from our garden.  I LOVE spinach.  I am, however, not a big fan of cooked or creamed spinach.  I want to like it but it just doesn’t agree with my taste buds.  But fresh, raw spinach…what could be better?  The heat from the omelet would not be enough (in my opinion) to constitute cooked spinach so it sounded YUMMY!

I sprayed my pan with very lightly with  vegetable oil and put about an 1/4 tsp real butter in the pan for flavor.  I wish I had some yard eggs but…well…maybe one day.  Husband mentioned getting chickens again yesterday when we talked so I think he is warming to the idea.

When the eggs were about done, I sprinkled the cut spinach onto them and folded it over.  I cooked it just a bit longer to be sure the eggs were done like I like them, but not long enough to wilt the spinach.  It was still nice and crispy!  PERFECT!

A little salt and pepper and a few fresh strawberries.  Pretty good way to start my day dont you think?

Looks like a lovely breakfast. I feel the same as you about spinach, love it raw but don’t like it cooked. I hope you are able to accomplish all that you intend for today.

Perfect way to start the day…
