From Appetizers to Breakfast

My breakfast this morning was created using leftover appetizers from yesterday’s BBQ.

A coworker of mine gave me a recipe for an appetizer called buffalo chips, and the leftovers were perfect for including in an egg scramble.

To make the buffalo chips, I cooked a roll of sage sausage, a pound of lean ground beef and half a block of the medium size 2% Velveeta cheese in a skillet, before placing the meat mixture on whole wheat mini toasts and baking it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the buffalo chips (especially the guys), and I used the leftover meat and cheese mixture to create an egg and sausage scramble for breakfast.

After reheating the meat in a skillet and scrambling two eggs, I topped the bowl with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese and flanked it with whole wheat toast.

Ryan really enjoyed this breakfast and said the sausage mix reminded him of the sausage meat inside a McDonald’s sausage breakfast burrito (He meant this as a compliment 😉 ).

Percy Jackson

This morning I also finished reading the first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I thought it was a very entertaining book and once I got over the fact that it’s written in the perspective of a  12-year-old boy I really enjoyed it. It’s no Harry Potter, but I found it interesting enough to want to read the next book in the series!

I am trying to talk Ryan into seeing the movie today (He’s already finished the first three Percy Jackson books)! It’s playing at a nearby theater where you can see  movies for $2 that are out of the big theaters, but are not available on DVD yet.

Have any of you seen the Percy Jackson movie or read any of the books? What did you think?

I’m off to take Sadie on a walk to the farmer’s market to pick up some goods for the week! I hope they have some yummy samples! 😀
