Like most blondes, I have my fair share of blonde moments. Though I’d like to think I’m a pretty smart gal, I can be an egghead on occasion.

A Blonde Through and Through

Case in point: One time I went on and on telling Ryan a story about a scary dream I had involving bamboos. You know… the monkeys with the pink butts? Riiight… I meant baboons. Eh.

Nothing will top my mom’s blondest moment though.

A couple of  summers ago, my family was hanging out by my parents’ pool. My mom was swimming and my dad made a comment about how the chlorine smell emanating from our pool was quite strong. Sooo, my mom went underwater and sniffed. Seriously. She came back up snorting, choking and laughing hysterically at her blondest moment ever. We will never let her live that one down. 😀


Today I’ve felt like quite the egghead, but not because of stupid things I’ve said. I’ve simply had eggs on my brain!

Sizzlin' Egg

Such a strong craving for eggs made my dinner decision an easy one.

Dippy eggs!

Dippy Egg with Salt and Peppa

I had dippy eggs with a toasted sweet wheat Alternative Bagel, a slice of Canadian bacon and a side of roasted zucchini.

Roasted Zucchini

My Dinner

When Ryan was playing soccer in a men’s league and had games on Thursday nights a couple of months ago, I always made breakfast for dinner. With him out of the house  tonight at his motorcycle class, I took full advantage of flyin’ solo and once again followed my breakfast-for-dinner cravings.

I enjoyed every last yolk-soaked bite!


Craving successfully satisfied.

I’m All Alone

As Donkey from Shrek would sing, “I’m all alone… there’s no one here beside me…”

(Sadie just gave me a nasty look for discounting her company.)

Ryan left around 6 p.m. for soccer game tonight, so I was on my own for dinner. You know what that means… Breakfast fo’ dinner!

Dippy Eggs!

Maybe I’m a sucker for good marketing, but I really do think Eggland’s Best eggs taste better… I don’t know how to describe it… I just like ’em! I can’t taste the “extra vitamins” they claim to have (nor would I want to), but I can taste deliciousness.

I made two dippy eggs and toasted a whole wheat Arnold sandwich thin for yolk dippin’.

On the side I enjoyed strawberry sorbet which I made by blending a couple large handfuls of frozen strawberries in the food processor. How’s that for a healthy dessert?

Peanut Butter Fingers at Her Finest
Look what arrived in the mail for me today:

Hell's Kitchen Homemade Peanut Butter

PB Delight

Peanut Butter Fingers!

My friend Krystina sent me this amazing jar of deliciousness from Hell’s Kitchen in Minnesota. I honestly cannot express in words how good this tastes.
Obviously a lot of this (below) has occurred this evening… and I don’t see it stopping any time soon.

Peanut Butter Fingers in Action

As both a peanut butter lover and a texture fanatic, this little jar satisfies two of my favorites in every finger full!
Five Fun Foodie Facts

Ally from Sweet & Savory told me about a fun little foodie questionnaire yesterday, so I thought I’d give it a go!
When did you discover your love for cooking/baking?
Though I’ve always loved baking, I discovered my love for cooking about a year after I graduated college… There’s only so many Lean Cuisines, hot pockets and instant oatmeal packets a girl can handle. I slowly stared making homemade dinners and experimenting more and more. Turns out it’s pretty darn fun!
Favorite food to make?
Baked goods! I think homemade cookies (especially Christmas cookies) are my favorite thing to make. The fact that I get to enjoy lots of cookie dough may or may not be the reason behind this selection…
Top eat of all time?
Easiest decision ever: The hot fudge sundae from Houston’s restaurant in Winter Park, Florida. It’s unbelievale. The ice cream is the creamiest vanilla ice cream, and it’s topped with thick, decadent hot fudge, candied pecans and tons of whipped cream. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day… and become a whale.
Most disliked food?
Catfish. Never tried it, never will. It disgusts me. (My reasoning may be found here.)
Food you still haven’t tried to make but want to?
Bread. I’ve made biscuits and muffins, but I’ve never attempted to make a homemade loaf of bread. This is probably a good thing since I’d likely devour the entire thing in 1.5 minutes.
…And I’m off to cuddle with Sadie and read Wicked!
I’m not gonna lie, the first quarter of the book was pretty awful. Thankfully, I think it’s finally starting to pick up as I enter the second half. Phew! At least I’ve only heard fantastic things about the musical. I can’t wait to see it on Saturday!!!

Christmas in January

Though it took me a good two weeks, our Christmas decorations were taken down before Florida weather started to creep back up into the ’70s.

However, even without a tree and twinkling lights, I just cannot seem to escape the Christmas spirit. Look what arrived in the mail today:

Christmas Stockings!

I orderd these embroidered stockings from Pottery Barn for me and Ryan after Christmas when they went on sale.

Our 2010 Stockings

Since Christmas 2010 will be our first official Christmas as a married couple, I figured we needed matching stockings, right? Oh Lord, I’m gonna be that kind of wife, aren’t I? 😉

After putting away the stockings, Ryan and I took Sadie on a walk around the lake. It was a little cloudy outside, but the temperature was great! I love being able to wear a t-shirt and comfy pants and not feel cold or hot. Us Floridians have to take advantage of weather like this, because it’ll be hotter than the sun in no time.

Once we got home, Ryan left for a soccer game (I hope they win!), and Sadie and I got to work making dinner. As always, when I’m on my own I crave breakfast for dinner, so that’s exactly what I had.

As part of Foodbuzz’s Tastemaker program I received a coupon for a free carton of Eggland’s Best eggs, so I had a full carton of eggs callin’ my name in the fridge.


Apparently these eggs have a lot more vitamins than other eggs. I couldn’t taste all those extra vitamins (which is probably a good thing), but I could taste deliciousness. I love dippy eggs!

Breakfast Fo' Dinn-ah

In addition to my two dippy eggs, I filled my plate with a slice of Canadian bacon, veggies and a toasted whole wheat Arnold sandwich thin.

Red Onion, Mushrooms, Squash

I used 3/4 of the sandwich thin to soak up the egg yolks and saved the left over quarter to make a mini-dessert.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Dessert

I topped the remaining 1/4 thin with chocolate PB2 and chocolate chips. (Another handful or two of chocolate chips may or may not have made it into my mouth as well. 😉 )

I bet I could eat breakfast for dinner five days out of the week and love it! Maybe that’ll be a fun little foodie experiment for the future…

Hooray for Friday tomorrow!
