I have no idea if my thought of making eggs more yellow is even a thing that people care about, but I thought I would share this little tidbit. Now that I’m at home I’ve been making myself lunch. Most days (when I’m not eating a bag of chips (because we ran out)) I make myself scrambled egg with potato and onion. Sometimes I’ll even throw in a dried out Anaheim pepper from last year’s harvest for some extra extra heat.
This “recipe” has no measurements because, well I just dump stuff in and go. Keeps the excitement alive while making and eating the same thing everyday.
When I scramble up my egg I use some 2% milk (I read somewhere it’s better for you than skim, and I don’t think coconut milk would taste good with eggs). I also add in fresh ground pepper (go crazy!), turmeric root powder (makes everything yellow, and adds a little spice, oh and it’s good for you), a little cayenne (much less of this than turmeric), and feta cheese. Like I mentioned before some dried Anaheim pepper might find it’s way in there as well. I also chop up a small red potato and white onion.
There you have it! My fairly simple, takes about 20 minutes to make lunch.
Also for the photography I was trying some bounce flash off my ceiling. Need to keep practicing these photo skills!
Since spring is still undecided if it should be freezing or warm, I figured it is a good day to bake some cookies. Yesterday I made Oatmeal A, B, C, which are delicious, but I decided it has been so long since I baked anything I would try another new recipe. I also have more time on my hands since I left my full time job to work on my photography business.
This recipe is from the Dining on a Dime cookbook. Also another huge plus of this recipe 6 ingredients! You read that right a whole 6 things. This recipe is egg-free if that is something you are looking for as well. I ran out of butter, so mine aren’t as buttery flavored as the title suggests.
Walnut Butter Cookies
1 c butter (I subbed out ½ cup of unsweetened applesauce) 4 Tbsp sugar (took this down from 6 Tbsp) 2 cflour 1tsp vanilla 1 c walnuts (I chopped them, recipe doesn’t say to)
powdered sugar (I used maybe 2 Tbsp)
Cream butter and sugar together. Add flour, vanilla and nuts. Roll into walnut-sized balls (I used my small scooper and didn’t pack it full for each one) onto a greased cookie sheet and lightly flatten. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, place on waxed paper and sprinkle with or roll in powdered sugar. Makes 3 dozen. (I got 37 😛 probably could have leveled off the scoop to make it the even 36)
