Thanks Love the sound of your green today! Especially the spices

I had scrambled eggs, with a bit of garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and 5 spice powder added for flavor. Tasted great. I like my scrambled eggs on the moist side, and so add a bit of milk to the mix as well. I then cook, stirring frequently. I don't want them browned. DW likes hers lightly browned, and dry. I like mine best when the egg is set, but still shiny from partially uncooked egg yolk, and steaming hot. If I'd have had time, and ingredients, I would have chopped and onion, and thrown in some diced chicken, ans a little celery.

I took a pic of my small (8") plate with today's efforts at a healthful breakfast. I haven't tried posting a food picture yet, but here goes:
That looks delicious Lizzie

(BTW, that dish is a dessert dish and NOT as big as it looks in the pic).

Here's what the parfait looked like:
Looking good

I opened a large can of whole American tomatoes. Put them in a bowl, lighted salted them. They were small enough that a whole one would fit in my mouth. I love it when I bite down and all the juice inside the tomato explodes into my mouth. I then poured the puree into a glass and drank as tomato juice. I love tomatoes. Cooked or raw.
