I microwaved scrambled eggs for the first time.

Seriously, where has that been all my life?

I’m always a bit hesistant to cook eggs in the morning because it’s such a hassle.

But microwaving?  What a life saver!

I’ll be the first to admit that microwaved scrambled eggs are NOT as good as stove top scrambled eggs.  However, it’s a quick and easy way to get some eggs for breakfast.

I scrambled two eggs into a microwave safe bowl.  I added some Lawry’s season salt for taste.

Then, I popped them into the microwave for 30 seconds.

At that point, only the outer edge of the eggs are cooked, so I stirred it all up and added another 30 seconds.

Stirred that up again and did another 30 seconds.

By then, most of the eggs are cooked, only a small amount of liquid is left.  I mixed that around and found that they remaining liquid cooked itself as the eggs were sitting there and mixed.

And there they are in all their microwaved glory.  Now the consistency is much firmer than eggs I normally cook on the stove top.  I supposed microwaving them for less time, or adding some milk could soften the consistency.  However, I didn’t mind the firmness at all.

In fact, I believe that the firm consistency is the reason K liked them so much.  She usually spits out my stove top scrambled eggs.  I think it may have something to do with the slightly mushy texture it leaves in her mouth.  But these eggs were a hit!

And here is a very blurry shot of the action.  (Yes, we were eating breakfast in the living room on the couch.  Sometimes, we like to live on the wild side.)

I can’t wait to experiment with some add-in ingredients to make these eggs more exciting and yummier!

I’ve been so busy this past weekend that I have neglected to enter a blog entry for a few days now. 

It’s ok.. absence makes the heart grow fonder..

That’s what they tell me all the time..

We had an awesome Easter Sunday.  Went to Mass.. crowded as usual because of all the Catholics that seem to remember they are Catholic only on Easter and Christmas.. oh ya.. and also Ash Wednesday..

When you are Catholic.. you are Catholic all the time.. you go to Mass every Sunday.. but that rant is for a whole other blog entry.. we are here to talk about Easter..

After Mass we went to visit my cousin and the whole rest of the family.  We all had a good time.. nice bbq..

The kids had a cute egg hunt.. my cousin did a great job hiding some of the eggs that some of the older kids couldn’t find theirs for awhile..

For our family, we have such a wide range of kids we had to develop rules to our egg hunts.. every kid is limited to a certain amount of “non-named” eggs.. and they also have a series of eggs with their specific names on them.. my cousin set it up so that the older they are.. the harder it was  to find the ones with their names on it.

That was actually quite fun helping those lost older ones find their named eggs..

All in all.. that was a very Blessed day for the family.. we celebrated the Resurrection of our Lord with family and love and lots of laughs.. God’s Grace was with us all that day.. as it is with every other day..with which we should all always be thankful..
