Benedict Cuperbatch – A hungry girl homemade microwave nosh
2 Ramkin (sauce cups) coffee cups if ya got em!
2 Farm Fresh Eggs (yes grocery store is fine.. but really?)
2 Slices vegan or real Canadian Bacon slices
2 Slices Gouda
2 tbl white wine (really more)
2 tsp dijon spicy mustard
1 Kings or Yeast roll – split and toasted
1- Mix your wine and dijon
2- Place equal amounts in each cup
3- Lay in your faux or real bacon
4- Lay in your gouda. I usually crack it half and half
5- Crack one egg in each ramkin
6- Micro on high 2-3 mins.
7- Watch your micro. Cause all food cooks faster when you do. Plus some are more powerful than others – and the goal here is to bring your eggs up to temp but not undercook or over cook them. I don’t like soft poached gooey middles of traditional benedict so I did mine to a soft solid yolk.
8- Put that roll in the toaster, after of course you have sliced it in half.
9- Plop out on to toast and enjoy – saucy juices and all.
Addins – as you can see from my pictures I added in some slices of red and yellow pepper I had in the fridge from a relish tray. Those went in and cooked with everything else to a nice soft but still snappy fresh addition.
Frugal is not even the beginning!
I love to catalogue shop. Its absolutely beyond a shadow of a doubt one of my most coveted secret pleasures. I am always disappointed though to find treasures that I would never have any intention on purchasing no matter how much I love due to their insane prices! This lovely tidbit is a perfect example.
Trend wise the last two years have been the year for do it yourself-ers. Crochet Knit and made by man pieces are easily duplicated off of all the runways. Payless Shoes are even popping up crocheted accessories and boots !
So browsing cats today with mom on the deck – shes ordering these insanely priced shoes. Asks me if I want a pair and I just cant find it in my gut to desire a 90$ pair of shoes right now. I look at some of the other items. This catalogue has really beautiful high quality constructed items. I know someone would have no issue paying these prices. Then I see this. I look closely at the HDC and TC and know that I have countless patterns in my circulars free patterns of the day and magazines collected over the years. Racing upstairs excited to the hilt I have made a designer discovery – I open Family Circle Crochet Spring 2007. Whats in the first few pages.. why this pale spring cardigan in pastel green. Ok the basket-weave and other stitches are slightly altered. Here’s the thing though.. any crocheter can take a pattern.. with some little bitty know how – alter cast ons and rows even each stitch to create the look they desire. This pattern is giving me the shell and with a little elbow grease.. I may very well have my first piece to design here folks !!
I am truly inspired and excited !
