Egg-ceptionally yummy and healthy

I ran out of ideas of what to cook for dinner last night. So I gathered what I have in the fridge. Four eggs, spinach, a tomato, mushrooms, and minced meat.

Chopped the tomato, mushrooms and spinach to tiny pieces, marinated the minced pork with soy sauce and a pinch of raw sugar. Beat up the eggs with a dash of milk, and threw everything in.

Result? A yummylicious fluffy omelette which Aidan enjoyed with Vegemite soup. And oh, steamed fish as well.

Now tonight I have roo steak and garlic bread, boiled brussel sprouts for the big boy, and perhaps fried rice with sausages for the little one.

Men! Why can't you fix your own dinners?! Go get some pizza or something. For those ladies who have hubbies who love to cook, good on ya. Never in a million years mine will serve me breakfast in bed.

haha, at least he's telling the truth and for you not to expect the unexpected from him. 'no surprise, no disappointment', no? :)

My hub can cook but he is lazy. He mastered his cooking during his uni study over at Brisbane :)

I haven't really tasted a good meal from him so far... LOL :)

Maybe Aidan will make Mummy breakfast in bed some day. My daughter will get up and make breakfast sometimes. Starting to prepare dinner on occassion too.

Roo steak? As in kangaroo? How does that taste?

Brussels sprouts. *gag* I just cannot eat those. They literally make me ill.

Sweetpea said...

shooi - lazy cooking! :P

aceone - not nearby lar, i don't always go to the city mar.

SA - great. tell her aussie's father's day is on sept. 2nd and that u are celebrating it as well :P

yep, the very same roo, but not my taste. all lean meat, no fat, gluten free. very healthy, but somehow got this taste i can't quite make out.

we like brussel sprouts, haha. i guess it's an acquired taste :P

I enjoy omelettes too... what's more, it's easy to prepare and cook! But.. vegemite! LOL... luckily not vegemite omelette...

laundryamah said...

no way i can get hubby to cook anything cos his standard doesn't qualify even instant noodles, he makes them too soft n yucky!

Sweetpea said...

kev - much as we love vegemite, we are not THAT adventurous :) back home in ipoh when i was a kid, we used to drink heaps of marmite soup.

amah - that's how my hubby likes it, haha. but i think some men play dumb, so they don't have to do anything :P

Simple American said...

Sweetpea said...

SA - tastes something like beef. red meat marr!
