Quick and Easy “Brinner”

Ah, Wednesday…we have a love/hate relationship.  This midway thru the week day sometimes makes the week feel so long.  Then, there are times when it seems like I’m saying “it’s Wednesday already?”  Does this ever happen to anyone else?  My Wednesday started with a nice 3 mile run.  I typically do 4 miles when I run, but I’ve noticed my knees bothering me a bit the last few days.  I don’t really know why, well, except, cough, cough…my age.  ;-/

If you’ve been reading my blog at all the past 11 months, (since Ava was born) you know that I love ‘quick and easy’ meals almost as much as I love cooking in general.  I’ve done bowl meals, leftovers, sandwiches, etc.  But, one thing I haven’t done is eggs.  You see, most of the time I don’t care for eggs, I don’t tolerate eggs very well, and just plain avoid them.  Too bad, because eggs are an excellent (and cheap) source of protein, and the yolk contains a lot of iron and vitamin D.  So every once in a blue moon, something egg-y sounds pretty good.   Well, I don’t know if it was a blue moon outside, but I decided to make omelets for dinner the other night.  Since Ava is a good egg eater (egg yolk only please,) we always have an abundance of eggs in the house.  It fit the bill for being quick and easy, and made a nice light dinner.  (Translation:  more room for dessert!)


2 eggs, stuffed with a bit of green onion, chard, and mozzarella cheese, topped with a little Greek tomato cucumber salad. 


What do you put in your omelets?


  1. I think eggs were MADE for dinner. My omelets almost always consist of: Spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and cheese (swiss or feta). Recently I made the best one yet: spinach, tomato and goat cheese topped with basil and more tomatoes and more goat cheese. Amazing.

  2. I love eggs!! That's what I usually eat for breakfast...don't know about them for dinner....
    But I add port. mushrooms and kale...with a little feta! YUM:)

  3. I heart eggs... we actually had scrambled eggs & whole wheat french toast for brinner last night! As for my omelets, I usually add spinach, bell peppers, & cheese of course.

  4. yummmy! being a student, i definitely appreciate the cheapness of eggs! i like to put loads of veggies in my omelettes - asparagus, zucchini, tomatos, and bell peppers are my usuals!
