Trust me, this is a real story. I was working in one of my many projects and lost track of time. Suddenly, my husband yell from another room; "hey, is 11: am, I am starving". Then rather quickly I realized I was hungry too. I dashed to the kitchen thinking -- what to cook? Then an idea came up, I got this, brunch for 2. However, I still didn’t know what. It was now 11:10 AM.
Ok Angie, think fast, what to make? Eggs? Fruits? Smoothies? Oatmeal? Then an “aha” moment came upon me. Why don't I combine eggs and add lox and whatever else I could find in the fridge.
The Plan: Exited with the plan, I got the skillet, added the eggs, and while they cooked, I cut the onion, lemon and tomato, and got the 2 plates ready. (Unfortunately, I didn't have bagels, chives or cream cheese, so I had to improvise.)
Outcome: At 11:25 AM we were having brunch with a refreshing glass of Prosecco. I tell you this, I am not a chef, I just enjoy and have a passion for cooking and if I can do it, so can you. So, get in your kitchen and start having fun! NOW!
