I had one of the Atkins Frozen meals. It was actually really good.

Today I lined muffin tins with the remaining Cdn bacon (knew there was a reason I had a 'four top'), cooked that at 400 in the oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, I steamed some field greens and made some Red River Valley cereal, grated some swiss cheese, chopped up some jalapeno pepper, and prepped pineapple (btw Steve Kroll, I'm loving pineapple with freshly grated pepper and white balsamic vinegar--thanks for turning me on to that for strawberries--it works great for pineapple, too). I decided to lightly poach the eggs in the microwave and finish them in the oven. That worked. Drained the liquid off the canadian bacon, put some cheese, steamed greens, egg, more greens, more cheese, jalapeno on top of the canadian bacon, popped that back in the oven for 3 minutes while I plated. Tasted great, looked lovely in the pan, I screwed up plating, but here are a couple of pics:

CWS, your plate looks lovely even with the broken egg. Not that runny eggs are my thing but if they float your boat enjoy!

Was going to make a baked puffed pancake - haven't tried that yet. But Himself slept in later than my stomach clock was happy with so I used some leftover ham and asparagus and made a two-egg oven omelet. Had some of the rye bread that needs to be used up anyway, so maybe it's better I didn't make the pancake.

I had Cream of Wheat with slightly sweetened strawberries. I need to cut back on my sweet breakfasts.

Have you tried fresh ground black pepper with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar (I did that to the pineapple this morning only I used white wine vinegar). It works great on strawberries and, as I have discovered, is also nice on pineapple.

Yes, I love it. Ran out of my Balsamic Syrup, waiting for warmer weather so I can open up the apartment before reducing the next batch.
