Hey there!

Wanna read about something other than my moods? 'Cause I'm kinda sick of hearing about them myself.

While I was in Luxembourg, my friend asked me if I cooked and what kind of stuff I make at home.

I couldn't think of anything... I mean, I know I cook, because we don't eat out that often and Louis isn't anything special (except for special) in the kitchen. I've eaten out twice while in Montreal, both this week consisting of McDonalds and a thing of poutine. I'm not really interested in eating out, for two reasons:

1. We had our food prepared for us day in and day out and it was none of the stuff that I liked and it was often inedible....

2. I'm so overwhelmed by the menu that I CAN'T decide. I can't focus enough to think about what I want to eat. If it's a restaurant I've been to before, I usually just order what I had last time. But it's always a very long, painful process. (OH! But I really want to go to Cora's for breakfast one day soon!!!)

Today for lunch I had something that I would typically have in Canada with Louis and the girls, although made much differently since it was just a serving for one, it's a Bacon Cheddar Apple Frittata.

To make the recipe that serves 4-6 (along with a nice side salad), you'll need:
6 eggs
spash of milk
1.25 cups of sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 Granny Smith apples - sliced, with the skin on
4 pieces of bacon (freeze the rest, it works well for me)

Cook the bacon until half way done in an oven-proof skillet, then add the apple to the pan until the apples looked mostly cooked. (Totally going to be a recipe writer when I grow up). Spread the sort of cooked mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. 

In a bowl, add eggs, milk, and .75 cups of the cheese. Add a bit of salt and more than a bit of pepper. Whisk them all together, then dump everything from the bowl into the skillet, and wait like, 5 or 6 minutes (maybe more, depends on  your skillet). Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Put the skillet into a pre-heated oven (I never remember what temperature I use...high 300*F or low 400*F) until the egg mixture looks cooked and then for the last few minutes, turn the oven to broil to make a golden cheesy top.

For my individual mixture, I used 1 piece of bacon, 1/3 apple (should have doubled that amount), 2 eggs, 2 egg whites, and 1 oz of cheese. Instead of having a frittata, it was an omelet, but tasted just as good.

 
Ok, calorically it's fine, but it looks like you shouldn't eat it every day because it's 40% fat and high in cholesterol...but whatevs. Add a salad and it's better for you than McDonalds or cereal (which I have banned myself to eat as a meal, no matter what).
 

I want to post more about my meals, cause I like to cook, but it's all really simple stuff like this.

And that's the end of this non-upset, non-obsessively analytical, random post. :)
