Every weekend morning you strolled down the city streets to the national mall or the botanical gardens and read. You had this whole thing about pulling yourself out of your work and putting yourself into different universes. These days today could be draining, complicated, and sad. It was nice to transport to a new place. You found a spot by the reflecting pool on the grass, placing out a blanket, your cup of coffee, and lunch box full of snacks.

You tried not to pay much attention to the ton of people running around the reflection pool or the meetings walking by. It was about the book and the places that book took you. An hour and a half into Winnie the Pooh by A. A. Milne, a guy collapsed in the grass in front of you. He was breathing heavily and very sweaty, you look at him, “Do you need some water,” you ask.

He looked towards you, shaking his head, “No, nope, just needed to take a breather. Don’t let me bother you,” he breathed out. You eyed him up not believing him. He was wearing an air force shirt, athletic build, and it seemed he could have quite the personality. It was just a feeling you had about him.

“Here,” you leaned over and handed him a water bottle, “Just hydrate, I really wouldn’t like to have to resuscitate you.”

He reached over and grabbed it, “I’m Sam.”

“Y/N,” you reached over and shook his hand.

“Thanks for this,” he drank some of the bottle, “Is that a protein bar,” he pointed on your blanket.

You chuckled, “Yeah,” he did this little pout thing, pretending to cough some more, “Would you like it?”

“If you don’t mind,” he grinned reaching for it, “I’m just so dizzy,” he put a hand on his head to illustrate he felt faint.

“I’m sorry, should I be calling someone to come get you,” I ask, putting my book down completely.

He shook his head, “Nah, I just need a minute or two,” he said opening the protein bar and taking a bite, “So Y/N-.”

“Wilson, you alright,” you looked up to meet the beautiful blue eyes of another man, “I got worried when I didn’t lap you back there,” he was looking down at Sam. You recognized this new man instantly, this was the emphasis Captain America. You noticed him once or twice around the area running or the news. I guess he was the closest celebrity you have ever been near, but you were kind of shy and didn’t like to meddle in other people’s lives.

Pointing his protein bar at Captain, “I just needed some air and this lovely stranger offered me substance and libations.”

“Offered,” Captain mocked his friend, “I’m sorry ma’am, Sam here struggles with social skills. I apologize.”

Shaking your head, returning comfortably to your blanket with your book, “I didn’t mind. I was just glad he was okay. I’m not known for my medical skills and I don’t have a phone on me.”

“How exactly were you going to help me call someone if I said yes to your offer,” Sam shot back, looking mockingly offended.

“I had a plan,” I shot back at him, “It involved running and/or screaming.”

Sam laughed at my response, “Well Y/N, it was real. Thanks for the extra fuel,” he started to get up, “Now Cap,” he looked at Captain America himself, “Give me a head start, stay here for a bit.”

“I don’t think that is necessary,” he said to his running mate, “I’ll take it easy on you.”

Shaking his head again, “Nah man, you don’t want me to faint again. Just let me have a head start, old man,” Sam continued.

“You’re a real-,” Captain started to say.

“Thanks bud,” Sam run backwards onto the trail before spinning around, looking awfully spry again.

You watched the conversation between the two men in amazement. This definitely threw a wrench in your usual morning routine. He looked down at you, “Aa, I don’t mean to barge in on your picnic, but may I,” he asked to sit down with you, “If he wants a head start, I’ve got some time,” he shrugged.

“Yeah,” you looked down to your blanket, pushing all your stuff, including your book out of the way, “Here have a seat.”

“I truly am sorry about interrupting your morning routine. I’m Steve,” he sat down on your blanket and put his hand out to shake, which you instantly accepted.

“Y/N,” you answered, “And it’s fine. My morning routine need a little spice up, I guess.”

Captain nodded looking around, you took this time to look at him, I mean, really look. He was watching the area or looking up at the sky. He was breathing lightly, which was nothing like his friend. Though I imagine a super soldier is built for working out harder than this. His arms seemed to be unreal, you leaned forward to touch it, but before you could, “So today is Winnie the Pooh,” he turned to me suddenly gripping my book.

Letting go the moment, “Oh, yeah,” you said awkwardly, what has gotten into you, “It’s a classic.”

“Yeah, yeah I know. I was eight when this came out. My mom would read this to me,” he grinned at the book, “A classic,” he shook his head. You sat quietly, just listening in amazement, “Last week it was The Secret Garden and Ethan Frome,” he made direct eye contact with you grinning, “Not once since I’ve seen you, that you were reading something published in the last twenty years. You must really like old and classic things.” You didn’t know what to say, he was just so pretty, you never acted like this, “I’m sorry, you must think I am really odd. I’m not st-,” he muttered out after your silence.

“Please,” you whispered, “You are truly the last man I’m worried about stalking me. You’re Captain America, I know what people say about you.”

“Oh really,” he grinned putting your book down, “What do they say?”

You blushed, pulling back a stray hair, “That you have an exceptionally strong moral compass, kind, and incredible strong,” you sputtered out, “Oh and very patriotic.”

Who did you think you were, joking around and saying those things? You really needed to learn to keep a tight lip. His laughing drew you back to him, “Yeah, I believe they say that, but right now I’m just Steve Rodgers a man from the Brooklyn, New York.”

You nod, smiling a little, “If that is the case, maybe I should be worried about you noticing my reading habits,” you joked.

“Touché,” he laughed again, “It’s hard to miss a woman like yourself reading such familiar things from my time and not once looking at a phone or using any technology. It’s refreshing,” he grinned looking away from the runners and back at you.

You nod your head, “I’m a lawyer, so I’m always answering my phone or dealing with some new tragedy. And sometimes I think people now a days are so awful, that I come here and throw myself into a whole new universe and what is better than the true classics,” you got carried away again, becoming a chatty Cathy. He must think you’re so weird, “I’m so sorry, I don’t know what has gotten into me. I’m not usually so talkative to strangers.”

“Again, refreshing,” he continued to look into your soul. Suddenly he looked at his watch, “I guess I’ve let Sam get enough of a head start. I’m sorry for taking up so much of your morning ma’am,” he began to stand.

“That’s alright Captain, you definitely made it more interesting. Take care of Sam, you might have to go a little easier on him,” you look up at him.

“Not a chance,” he grinned down at you, taking a few steps back, “And it’s Steve, please.”

You were overwhelmed by an impulse to ask Captain a question, “I’m sorry, Cap – Steve, but do you mind if I ask you a question?”

“No, ask away ma’am.”

“When you said a woman like myself, what did you mean,” you were concerned he meant weird or worse, though you’re sure Captain America wouldn’t say anything if that is what he meant when he said it.

He grinned, scratching the back of his neck awkwardly, checking the running path before answering, “Beautiful ma’am – a woman like yourself I meant a beautiful.”

You sat back in shock, “Oh, oh alright. As long as you didn’t think I was weird.”

Sam whistled on past us again, Captain sent him a glare, “That’s my call,” he pointed at Sam.

“This was interesting, thank you,” you said to him again.

He looked down the path at Sam, “Hey, look – do you, could I buy you your coffee tomorrow? Maybe join you. I won’t bother you, we can sit in silence and read.”

Taken back, you blinked a few times. Captain looked a little discouraged by your hesitation, “Sure, I mean, that sounds fine,” he looked relieved, “One condition, you’ll have to tell me what it was like to be alive when my book was published.”

He chuckled, “Deal,” he smiled looking down, “See you in the morning Y/N.”

“Goodbye Steve,” you waved after him. Not in a million years would you have guessed that you’d get a date with the infamous Captain America.

Captain caught up quickly to Sam, “Did you get a date?”

“You think you’re so clever,” he said to Sam, “I could have done that on my own.”

“Nah man,” he said smiling at his friend, “You’ve been out of the game for far too long. You need yourself a wingman.” He burst into a blunt laugh, “Ha, get it wing man. Now that is a pun.”

“I’m going to sprint past you know.”

“Your welcome,” Sam screamed after him.

Can I get some Nidoking headcanons?

Nidoking need less fat and protein in their diet than Nidoqueen.

Older Nidoking are called stags, while newly evolved ones are called bucks (all Nidoqueen are called does).

A Nidoking with a broken horn was a villain in a popular animated movie.

A Nidoking with large fangs will often attract more mates than a Nidoking with a long horn.

Contrary to popular belief, horn length will not indicate a Nidoking’s age.

hobbitburlesque  asked:

Hey, so. My partner has decided to become vegetarian, and I'm the person who cooks the most in the house. Do you have any tips? We didn't eat all that much meat most of the time anyway, but there are a couple of mainstay recipes I'm struggling to convert or replace. I'm always down for blog or recipe recommendations. Thanks!

I so rarely talk about my diet on this blog because invariably some jackass with be a dick about it. I went vegetarian at 13 and vegan about 18 years ago. I’m bad at telling and better at showing when it comes to something like this. I’ve gotten to a point where my body just knows it needs something like greens or protein and I’ll eat some spinach almonds or tofu. Sometimes it’s not about substitutions and just about trying something new. There are a lot of cultures that don’t eat a lot of meat because meat is a luxury. Things are often flavored with it but not everything, try looking up recipes from other cultures for vegetables. Using soy sauce or fermented bean pastes like miso can help build flavors too.

Years ago I stated getting a box of vegetables a week, like a CSA. It was honestly one of the most fun and challenging thing to find new ways of cooking vegetables. Center your plate around veggies and all the unique ways to cook them.

I enjoy vegweb for looking up recipes and generally use google to search for them. I keep landing on the Fat Free Vegan blog. I also like the Post Punk Kitchen. however, I’m generally really bad at following instructions and recipes. I generally tweak things a bit to my taste.

I hope some of that is helpful!

Breakfasts: Guys. Guys. Guys. I’m making cashew butter and peach chia seed jam, and I’mma put that shit on my bread! I grabbed cashews, bread, and peaches at the store. At home, I have the chia seeds I need for the jam, as well as a lemon for that zing. On the side for an extra hit of that AM protein, I’m making a lemon and vanilla almond milkshake. I needed some almond milk and lemon extract from the store. I have protein powder, vanilla, stevia, and ice at home.

Lunches: I’m making an Asian-Inspired noodle soup. I grabbed stock, rice wine vinegar, garlic, ginger, jalapeno, a blended vegetable mix, and cilantro. At home, I already have onion, sesame seed oil, edamame noodles, soy sauce, and coconut milk.

Dinner: I’m making Korean-BBQ chicken, orange-ginger rice, sauteed cabbage, and a steamed veggie mix. I picked up rice wine vinegar, green onions, garlic, orange, ginger, cabbage, bell peppers, carrots, and eggplant. At home, I already had soy sauce, sesame seed oil, onion, red chili flake, and brown sugar.

Snacks: Strawberries, watermelon, and protein shakes

After coupons, store rewards, and bottle returns (Michigan), my cart came out to $52.95. I have to say that I had $16 of bottles (holy cow) and that rarely happens. I’ll just pretend my Major Dickinson coffee was free!

Tangled Up In Blue ‘Deleted Scenes’

Interrupted Sexy Time

Summary: This is where I will be posting a collection of missing scenes that are based on prompts or deemed unnecessary for my actual story Tangled Up In Blue.

A/N: I have so many ideas for this universe but I often get carried away when I write them out, so I decided to keep them separate. And as I mentioned on Tumblr awhile ago, I will be taking suggestions or prompts, so please feel free to leave a comment or pm me to request anything you would like to be added. It can be smutty or angsty or just plain cute, I will be more than happy to include it. I’ve rated this Mature due to the content of first scene, but ratings and tags may vary with each chapter. Also, note that these scenes will be added in no particular order so if there’s something you wanted to see that would’ve taken place towards the beginning of the story please ask away! Thanks so much for following along with my story!

I’m not sure if this is exactly what the Anon wanted, but I had originally planned on writing this for the actual story, and alas, I got carried away with the sexy times and it would have taken up more than half of chapter 20. So I decided to post this as a deleted scene while I write the next chapter. I have more time this coming week so I will be able to update soon.

For this chapter I decided to incorporate some of the dialogue from the pancake scene, so this is my contribution to that scene, even though it’s an alternate universe. I apologize ahead of time, I just could not resist doing so (not actually sorry) ; )

Read from the beginning: Tangled Up in Blue

Emma was having really bad hunger pangs when she woke up. Which really was a shame seeing as she was snuggled comfortably in her lover’s arms and didn’t ever want to leave. He was still sleeping, an adorably content look settled in his handsome features as she peered up at him.

In the end, her intense craving for something sweet overruled her other desires. She very slowly and carefully removed Killian’s arm from around her belly and placed it beside his face. The next challenge was his legs that were entangled with hers. She gently pushed his body from hers and somehow managed to slip her legs free and force herself to sit up, dangling her feet over the bed. As she craned her neck and glanced over at her peacefully sleeping boyfriend, Emma immediately regretted her decision, but if she didn’t satisfy her craving, she wasn’t going to be able to relax.

She stood up and walked over to the closet, grabbing her robe. As she slipped it on, tying the belt above her belly, she felt like she was on a cloud, her body still buzzing and feeling alight from the lovemaking she and Killian had engaged in the night before. She couldn’t contain the smile that spread across her lips as she went downstairs and headed to the kitchen. She couldn’t believe how happy and content she was after all the years she felt imprisoned when she was with Neal. Even knowing that he was still a threat to Emma and her baby, she was still optimistic. She felt safe and secure with Killian, and no abusive husband of hers was going to change that.

Emma opened the refrigerator, finding the leftover apple pie she had made. She licked her lips thinking about having a slice of it. She grabbed the pie container it was in and shut the door behind her before making her way to the counter. She took out a slice and transferred it to a plate, putting it in the microwave.

When the pie was warmed up to her liking, she took out a carton of vanilla ice cream, scooping some up and plopping it on top of the slice before replacing the container in the freezer. She decided that she would feel selfish eating apple pie by herself without sharing some with Killian so she grabbed two forks from the silverware drawer.

Just as she was about to pick up the plate, she felt a pair of strong hands curl around her hips and a warm pair of lips brushing across her ear. Her heart fluttered as he swiped her disheveled hair to one side of her shoulder, murmuring against her skin.

“Mmm, something smells delicious.”

Too Hot To Handle: Chapter Five

So I kinda wrote a different kind of fanfiction. It’s nothing as in depth as my other fics so I am going to post it here. ENJOY!!

          ***Actor, Real Person Fanfiction, Walking Dead RPF***

Featuring: Jeffrey Dean Morgan X Original Female Character, Norman Reedus and others.. (Fyi this is total fiction as in I know nothing about JDMs life or that of his real SO and son etc. This is written for sick daydreaming pleasure.)

Aria St. James is a busy woman with a thriving restaurant. She thought she had everything she needed until a few famous faces visit her dining room. A tall, dark and handsome actor decides Aria’s just what he’s been looking for.

Rating: Mature

“Okay boss lady.” Javier announced, smacking his hand onto the counter. “Tell me all about your date with Fuckhot McHotty or I’m vetoing the carrot soup.” Glaring at him, Aria grumbled, "First off, that soup is fucking amazing and you have no goddamn say. Second, it’s  none of your goddamn business.”
“Come on Ari.” He whined, complete with a foot stomp that would make a two year old jealous.  
“Fine.” She whined mockingly back her nose wrinkled in irritation. “We went on a date. He’s a very handsome, charming man. And yes we will be seeing each other again.”
“How good in bed is he?” Javier asked with a flirty smile. Rolling her eyes, Aria replied, “I’m not dignifying that with an answer.”
“Fine. Where’d you go with this handsome charming man?”
“He took me on his bike to the fair. We rode some rides, ate some junk food. It was fun.”
“Please tell me you got to kiss him at least. That fuckers mouth. Mm, mm, mm.” He ended the sentence with a unbelieving head shake, his gaze to the heavens above.
Rolling her eyes, she muttered, “We may have kissed. He’s very good at it.”
Laughing, Javier grinned widely, “So he asked you out again already?”
“He’s traveling some this weekend but when he get back we’re having dinner.”
“You’re cooking aren’t you?”
“I enjoy cooking and I figure he took me out the first date, I’ll handle the second.”
Grinning like a maniac, Javier bounced on the balls of his feet, “This is so fucking exciting. You have to take me to one of those after parties. I have to meet Michonne. She’s so fucking badass.”
“I don’t know who that is and we’ve gone on one date. Calm down, there isn’t a wedding reception planned just yet.” She spoke dryly, her throat tightening at the words and images. 

‘What the fuck?’ She scoffed inwardly while mentally slapping herself silly.

Protection and Prosperity Pasta Salad
To protect you from harm while bringing prosperity into your life

I’ve made a version of this a few times in the past, including for my recent road trip. For that I made it with the intention of having a safe, insightful, and prosperous trip, and for my next unemployment payment to come in on time. This batch I added onion for physical protection and lemon juice for a clarity & a fresh start.

1lb pasta (I prefer rainbow rotini–extra nutrition, plus extra power from the colors)
1lb cherry tomatoes
1 red onion, chopped (could use whatever Western onion you have)
1/4t+ crushed chili peppers
2+ cloves of garlic (to taste)
1T+ fresh rosemary, chopped (to taste)
1T+ fresh basil, chopped/torn/etc (to taste)
1 lemon, seated and sliced
Olive oil, as needed (to preference)

Pasta: wheat to represent earth, red for passion, green for money
Tomatoes: representing water and summer
Salt: earth, purifying
Sugar: “sweetening” the spell to draw the goal to me
Onion: physical protection
Chili: passion, fast acting, repeating fire
Garlic: mental and spiritual protection, confidence and courage
Rosemary: protection, prosperity, passion
Basil: protection, prosperity, money drawing
Lemon: clarity, a fresh start, representing water

Make intention as you add each ingredient. Say your blessing(s) as preferred. I typically burn a bar leaf (charged with intention) when I start cooking.

1) Heat oven to 300F. Sort out bad tomatoes and rise. Thoroughly dry off. Mix with olive oil and salt. Start with 1t oil and mix well. You can add more oil until all toms are thoroughly coated. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes to 2 hours, checking and stirring every 15 minutes or so. I’m actually allergic to raw tomatoes so I roast them until they’re all shriveled up and browning. (I also roasted sausage with them for some of the time since I need protein with my meals.)

2) While roasting tomatoes, cook pasta to box or preferred directions. Rinse with cold water to stop cooking. (Save gray and rinse waters for your garden!) Prep other ingredients. Make sure to thoroughly wash your herbs and lemon! (I use a salad spinner to quickly wash and dry fresh herbs. And hot water for lemons, which helps with juicing.)

3) Sautee onions with oil, salt, and sugar over low heat. Once cooked to near desired texture, add garlic, crushed chili, rosemary, and more oil. (all of these depend on your taste and preferences!) Cook over low until desired texture and taste. Keep an eye on the garlic so it doesn’t burn! Let this cool.

4) Once the pasta, tomatoes, and onion mixture are ready and cooled, combine them in a large bowl with basil and lemon zest. Serve cold or room temp with fresh lemon. (I usually add parmesan cheese too)

can you do the gang at Disneyland. that'd be cool. :)

Hey there! Thank you so much for asking. I’m sorry if this got back late to you. I’m just so stressed out since our freshman formal is coming up soon, but I will gladly right it for you!

🌟 At one point Darry would have to give Pony a piggyback ride because his feet got tired.

🌟 Dally steals candy from a little kid with Mickey Mouse ears on.

🌟 “Damn I wish Y/N was here,” Johnny says.

🌟 Darry would try a HUGE ass turkey leg.

🌟 “What are you staring at, Ponyboy?”

🌟 “What Pony? I need some protein in.”

🌟Dally goes on Tower of Terror fifty million times.

🌟 The gang loves Epcot.

I only worked about half the day today. I just needed to not be there after working all Friday and Saturday. 

I did go to crossfit today and yet again had to do a modified workout. My shoulder isn’t hurting anymore, but now it is time to build up it’s strength so I don’t hurt it again.

Today’s WOD

20min EMOM

3 manmakers

I did 3 bar rows and three dumbbell hang squat cleans @ 20#.

I need to figure out how to get some more protein into my life. I figure that I am getting between 110-120 a day and I aiming for 149 grams a day. If anyone has any suggestions for high protein snackage yell it out. Yes, I am using a protein powder already to get some more. 

I think i may need to do a My Fitness Pal tracking week to see where i’m at. I feel pretty confident that I am getting close to enough calories per day. I don’t really like tracking too much as it makes me too rigid in what i eat and it isn’t good for my mental health. If I’m hungry I eat more, if I’m not I don’t. I still eat paleo. It’s not for weight loss or anything other than i physically feel better eating that way. I also have found that it gets rid of cravings. I literally don’t crave carbs or sweets when i am eating this way. Anyway, I’m babbling and need to go take a shower. Throw your protein thoughts and ideas my way.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any advice on time management when it comes to experiments? Particularly with both in vitro work and mice experiments; I'm having a lot of trouble balancing and planning! I know it's obviously experiment dependent, but like, how do you keep a level head and plan out your experiments and time? It's hard for me to not start prioritizing one as more important than the other but they all have to be done, so idk what to do. Thanks so much.

hello there! the best thing to do is to plan ahead using a calendar or planner. that way you can have a “bird’s eye view” of what’s happening, and have an actual visual on how to manage your time.

my entire lab uses google calendars to plan our experiments, sometimes weeks in advance. we also share our calendars, so we all know what everyone else is doing.

secondly, we all have enough experience with our cells/protocols/animals to know how long every experiment will take (to set up and to complete). 

for example, i know that if i split my cells today at a 1:10 dilution, they’ll be 70-80% confluent in a week (the ideal confluency), so if i need to plate them, or do some treatments for protein harvest, i can mark on my calendar when that experiment will ideally start. but since i can’t start that experiment until next week, i know i can do something else this week (which i also add to my calendar). also, since i have a week, i’m also going to go check if i have all my supplies, reagents, etc. no worse feeling than being in the thick of an experiment and discovering the reagent is all gone!

here’s a sample of what my next week looks like so far:

(my calendar’s in pink, my lab mate’s in green, lab manager in blue. purple is my own personal calendar that isn’t shared.. hence the debuts of tv shows/movies haha. ALSO “nudes” = athymic “nude” mice, a strain of mouse that’s hairless. not something inappropriate lol)

google calendars is great because you can always move things around, and plan out experiments months and months in advance (i have an experiment planned all the way until june 12). you can also type event details, like what your controls are, what cell split you need, etc. it’s also useful to mark down things like.. whether our tissue culture hood will be down for maintenance, who’s going on vacation when, etc. and, as a bonus, you can use it to go back and see what you did last week/last month/last year in case you need to remember a specific date. 

if you don’t want to use google calendars, printable calendars or planners work great too! though i would advise to use pencil in case things change. 

hope that helps, and best of luck! (if anyone else has a method they use, please share!)

After gym selfie.
Just the guys tonight.
Shlomo, Gordo and myself.
Let’s see rip trainer, straight leg deadlifts, some funky shit on the floor, superman planks in the trx, rows, reverse lunges with kettle bells and last but not least the ropes.
Arms and shoulders sore. Right hamstring and buttock sore. I am so lopsided. 😄
Needed some protein so hit Wendy’s on the way home. I know I know but I needed that baconator.
Night all.

I have a cold because I worked for three weeks straight then went on a bender involving an out of town wedding, all the while surviving almost exclusively on overnight oats, protein shakes, and coffee.

I need some rest.


Good Morning 💋💗💋💗💋

I woke up this morning at 5am-Without an alarm clock!
I contemplated going back to sleep but I knew that I had finals all day and I needed to grab a few groceries and I really wanted to get a workout in somewhere in between. So, I had two very strong cups of coffee, chugged some BCAA’s and got to it. I completed a HIIT session that took about 30 minutes and was intense enough to burn just shy of 500 calories, so that was good 😝

I threw on some comfy street wear and hit the road👟

I just feel that a pair of nice shoes and designer glasses can turn a sloppy outfit out 😎

I normally just grab my fresh veggies at the market in town, but I needed some protein and frozen goods, so I headed down the street to the grocery store.

I snagged up this spray bottle at the market on my way back home. It’s perfect for when you just need a spritz of olive oil. I had much rather use a natural oil than a non-stick cooking spray made up of chemicals.

For lunch today I had chicken with zucchini, followed with another plate with tomatoes for an afternoon snack 🌱🍅 So delicious!

I literally sat at the computer working on a single paper ALL day 📖.
The subject is religion, a topic that is always fascinating, so it could be worse.

Now for a big ole bowl of protein ice-cream, RuPaul and bed.

Happy Thursday y'all!!! 💋

Continued from Here.

The mage stood there, unmoving for a solid minute. He took the burger flipper’s bluff, no one was behind him. And so he reached into his cloak and pulled out… a small bag of G. “I’ll order the steak, it has been a while since I have eaten and I need some protein.”

And yet he never stopped staring at the other, always looking into his eyes as if he were staring deep into their soul and discerning something they were insecure of. In that moment he gave a crooked smile.

“You have your mother’s eyes.”


Quick and tasty egg options

This is actually three recipes (recipes in the loosest sense of the word). They all use eggs because protein is what I look for in a meal (especially breakfast) and I don’t have a nice enough blender to make smoothies. They all try to get as much protein with as little effort and cost as possible. 

The first is a quick version of something I’ve always called eggy-weggy

You’ll need:

  • At least one egg (more if you want)
  • Some bread (anything will do including stale)
  • Some cheese (optional)
  • Anything else you want to add like veggies or meat, leftovers work great here (optional)

The process of making it is pretty easy. You either cut or tear the bread into pieces and put it in a pan. You can add fat here but you don’t have to if the pan is non-stick/cast iron. You toast the bread and then you add the veggies or meat if you’re using them. Then you break the eggs, stir once or twice, drop in the cheese and let it cook until the eggs are done. The whole thing takes about 10 minutes if your veggies/meat is already cooked

You can also make it in the microwave. Just throw all the ingredients into a microwave safe dish and stir a couple times before cooking. I like to toast the bread if I’m going to microwave it (and I have time) but you definitely don’t have to.

If you’re trying to stretch the amount of eggs you have, you can also add some cottage cheese or greek yogurt or sour cream with the eggs and use more bread.

The next is a version of grilled cheese

You’ll need

  • Bread
  • Eggs
  • Cheese that will melt 
  • Optional additions include caramelized onions and mustard

Beat the eggs (you can thin them out with a little water or milk to make them last longer) and put the bread in like you’re making french toast. Cook your savory french toast and when it’s done add the cheese and any toppings. Proceed like a normal grilled cheese.

The last is barely a recipe but when I need to get some protein fast, I’ll throw an egg into a bowl of oatmeal, mix it in and microwave it.
