I went to make myself dinner last night and there was NO FOOD IN THE HOUSE. I should have realized that because I made the same discovery when I went to make myself lunch earlier that day.
What does one eat when there is almost no food in the house? Scrambled eggs with fresh rosemary and thyme (we have a little herb garden) on sourdough toast (that stale bread in the back of the fridge) with laughing cow cheese spread on it. With the some-what-stale bread in the back, I found a bottle of my favorite ginger beer that I had been saving. It turned out to be a pretty decent dinner.
Today my sister and I hit the grocery store and bought EVERYTHING.
P.S. The secret to the best scrambled eggs is to plate them when they look like they need to cook for a few seconds more. They continue cooking on your plate so they’re perfect when you eat them.
