SUNDAY BRUNCH IN BED WITH Mr.P

What happens when you wake up early on a cold Sunday morning and decide to dash out the door for the early service at church, without eating breakfast? You go back to your warm little house, climb back into your pj's, make Sunday Brunch for your sweetie and snuggle under the covers in your cozy bed while eating scrambled eggs and reading the Sunday paper. Life can sometimes be complicated so it's important to make time for you and your family to slow down and just BE. Tomorrow morning will be here soon enough bringing a busy week of work, school and preparing for visiting family, friends and our Thanksgiving feast. So in the words of Ferris Bueller, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't slow down and look around, you might miss it".

I didn't plan to make brunch in bed this morning. When we came in from church, I was hungry and decided to scramble eggs. In an effort to free up as much space as possible in my fridge for the coming holiday week, I began pulling things out that I could quickly throw into my eggs. A handful of spinach, a few left over grape tomatoes, grated cheese, sausage crumbles and a bit of onion. What started out as cleaning the fridge quickly turned into a delicious meal for two under the covers.

SPINACH, TOMATO AND SAUSAGE EGG SCRAMBLE

There is no written recipe for this, however I will tell you what I used.

INGREDIENTS
3 large eggs
3/4 cup baby spinach
2 tablespoons minced onion
a handful of grape tomatoes
1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley, if you don't
 have it you can use a pinch of dried or skip it completely
1/2 cup prepackaged, precooked sausage crumbles
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Kosher salt and Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

WHAT TO DO

Crack eggs into a small bowl. My 'large' eggs were huge and I only used 3. 
If they had been smaller I would have used 4. Add a pinch or two of salt and ground pepper. Whisk and set aside. 
 Melt butter in a non-stick skillet, over medium-high heat.
 Add spinach and onions. Saute until spinach is wilted.
 Add grape tomatoes, sausage crumbles and parsley; 
cook about 2 - 3 minutes. Stir everything well to make sure everything is heated through. 
 Add whisked eggs to your skillet and begin stirring at once. Immediately turn 
your heat down to medium-low. Keep stirring and folding the eggs over and over.
 When they are almost cooked, add cheese. 
Make sure to mix the cheese in well so that it melts....and your done.

I served my SPINACH, TOMATO AND SAUSAGE EGG SCRAMBLE with toast, juice, coffee, newspaper and a smile.
Had I planned ahead I would have had some sort of fresh fruit on our tray and maybe some really good quality jam or small danish. I did add an iced pumpkin muffin, which neither of us ate. It was a relaxing moment in our otherwise hectic lives. It was nice to start the week off with wonderful quality time with my husband, Mr.P!


Go through your fridge as you prepare for Thanksgiving. You never know, you 
just might find the ingredients in there for something wonderful!

You'll be glad ya did!
ENJOY!
