Feel free to cozy up with your favorite beverage (if you're like me, then maybe it's an espresso over ice with a splash of cream, or a warm matcha latte if it's cold outside!) and stay awhile. This is my place to share not just beautiful weddings or sessions, but to share my life. My hope is through this, you'll get to know a bit more about me and all the beautiful people that make it worth living!
Are you having a houseful of guests in the next few weeks and you just have no idea what to make. Let me guess, your pantry is probably full of all kinds of things… or at least your grocery list is a mile long, because if you just “have” a bunch of ingredients, you’ll be sure to have enough to make some meals, right!? Hosting guests is exhausting and so fun, but it can be so rewarding, too! :) This season, grab some eggs at the store and spice them up with a little love and serve with some wintery fruit, and you’ll have a dining table that is beaming. Because I’m learning every single day lately that 95% of the time, simple is better. :) It doesn’t have to be stuffed french toast, or a fancy spin of eggs benedict with the creamiest hollandaise.
Call it a day with scrambled eggs and some fresh winter fruits! :)
Merry Christmas, friends!!! :)
Scrambled Eggs + Fresh Fruit | Serves 5
1 honeydew or golden melon | cut into chunks | cut both ends of honeydew off, stand up on end, slice the rind around the honeydew off, cut in half, scoop out the seeds, and slice into strips before cutting into chunks! Easy!
2 pomegranates, seeded | cut off both ends, lightly slice through the rind and break into chunks, and pull seeds out!
1 lime, juiced | pour a little juice over the fruit for a little pucker ;)
3 bananas, sliced into rounds
For the eggs:
18 eggs, cracked into a bowl and whisked
2 tsp garlic powder
salt + pepper to taste
6 sausages, sliced into rounds | I used the Trader Joes spicy jalapeno chicken sausage without the casings…alllll the yum!
shredded pepperjack cheese
3 cups fresh spinach, optional
chopped tomato, optional
sliced avocado, optional
minced red onion, optional
fresh cilantro, optional
Whisk all of the eggs together and pour into a greased nonstick pan, over medium heat. Stir a few times until the eggs start to scramble. Once almost done scrambling (the eggs won’t look “wet” anymore), throw in the sliced sausages and spinach and put the lid on over low heat for 1-2 minutes. Top with the shredded cheese and other toppings and put the lid back on. This will allow the steam to melt the cheese!
Serve with fresh salsa, ketchup, sour cream, sriracha, or the whole kitchen sink!
