Spinach Omelette on a Hero Roll

Trying to make my eggs for breakfast a little healthier. There's a bag of fresh spinach in the fridge, so I took out a handful, cut the stems, washed, dried and cut up the leaves and added it to the pan while I was whisking the eggs. I went with two eggs instead of three. Small steps, you know.

Not a lot of extra prep time and I'm happy with the results.

No bagels in the house, but there were hero rolls, which we had bought for hot dogs. (You can actually fit two regular hot dogs on one roll, if you're planning on having two dogs any way.) So I cut the omelette up and spread it out a little.

I wanted to add some mozzarella, but we seemed to be down to the last string cheese, and I don't want to steal the kids' snacks.

Finally, I added a little salsa. The bread would've been dry, so it was either add some salsa or butter the roll. Salsa was the better choice.

No pics. It wasn't "photo-worthy". It wasn't ugly, either. But it was good and worth the extra time.

Chickpeas, Rice ... That's a Wrap!

One of the problems I have with people posting recipes on Facebook is that they post Pictures of them, which I neglect to save in the way that I might save something that's written. For that matter, when it's typed out, I have a shot at finding it through some kind of text search.

A week or two ago, someone posted a picture for mix-and-match wraps. Take a tortilla and then add one item from each of the next four or five rows. I forgot to save it, even though I meant to.

Well, there are tortillas in the fridge from last night's dinner as well as the casserole we had, but I'm not in the mood for that. Besides, we'll probably have that for leftovers tomorrow night (or the next). But there are ingredients. There's the yellow rice, a container with chick peas, a glass dish with cooked asparagus, sliced sirloin steak (which I cooked a few days, but it was sliced up for last night's dinner), etc.

Goes together well.

Put some yellow rice, some asparagus and steak into a bowl. Microwave for about 45 seconds. In the meantime, put a little spicy mustard on the tortilla.

Put the heated ingredients on top, add some chick peas and sour cream. Wrap it up.

I'm enjoying it. Your mileage may vary.

Edit: As I type this, my son has decided to follow my lead and make a wrap. He skip all the other stuff, except the rice, and pulled out some leftover chopped meat. I miss those days. (Ah, hell. I'll probably do that tomorrow.)
