a quiet breakfast for momma.

Once a week or so, I take a few minutes for myself in the morning. After the boys go to school and before the babies wake, I make myself breakfast and eat it at the table in silence. I have never been a lover of sweet breakfasts. I need salt and protein to get me through the morning. This little setup only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it’s like a healthy homemade version of an Egg McMuffin.

Momma’s Signature Breakfast
what you need:
one or two eggs
a splash of milk
a sliver of butter
a slice of toast
a piece of turkey
fix it:
drop the sliver of butter into a glass measuring cup.
beat the eggs and milk in with a fork, adding salt and pepper.
microwave (that’s right) for increments of 20 seconds, checking it often.
it poaches it in a clean/fast/magic way.
enjoy yourself:
i serve it on a piece of toast with a slice of turkey (and lots of mustard).
i also include a glass of iced coffee with milk or heavy cream.

Chris finally participated a few weeks ago. He liked it with cheese.
In the words of Plex the Magic Robot… Try it! You’ll like it!
Happy weekend, friends!

  1. I am trying to get to bed earlier so that I can rise before Ocean does (around 6:30 am to 7) Luna doesn’t typically go to bed until around 11:30 pm though. But this is my goal! Get up, have breakfast, read, blog…silence. ahhhhh….

  2. Omg, I love that you quoted Plex! Saying “try it you might like it” is the ONLY way I can get my daughter to eat new things, we also sing the ” don’t be afraid ” song a lot :-) love your blog!

  3. I must admit, I may take this idea! Having just a few minutes of peace can really change your day. Also, that breakfast looks amazing!c
