New Way to Eat Scrambled Eggs

I found a new way to eat scrambled eggs and make scramble egg sandwiches so you can do this for a lunch or for breakfast.
This will take a little prep time but not much, toss some potatoes in the over and bake them until done or half way done. I usually put in 9-10 potatoes being that I have 2 hungry males most of the time.
When the potatoes are done let them cool down by either sitting over night or placing in the refrigerator.
In a large frying, put in 3 tablespoons of butter melt the butter and begin adding cut up baked potatoes, begin cooking them to where they look a bit golden brown. Now add eggs, I add about 5 eggs but you can experiment and reduce this recipe to how you like it. Begin stirring and scrambling potatoes and eggs, coating the potatoes with egg.
Now if you have lunch meat , left over sausage, bacon or any other kind of meat you can add or just leave meatless.
As eggs and potatoes begin to look done add salt pepper, seasoning salt, onion, shredded cheeses, sometimes I love to add pepper jack and make this spicy, but cheddar or any kind of cheese will work. Add the cheese last as just to melt over the top. Now its ready to serve up and eat.

If you would like this as a lunch do as stated above, omitting the cheese. then toast whole wheat bread, sour dough or just regular white. Add slice tomato, lettuce, a slice of American cheese, spread mayo onto toasted bread and then add scrambled egg mixture and you have a wonder and filling sandwich.
Both ways are good anytime of the day.

The Finished Crochet Rag Rug and Small Basket

I finally finished the rug and basket, they both were fun to create. Nope no patterns once again just ideas out of my head.
On the rug I used a triple stitch and a double, and I used a yarn that was acrylic and of many earthly tones.
The rug is about 19x18 and the basket is 11 inches across and
I designed a simple lid for it Now for the basket I did a single stitch and a double, for both the rug and basket I used my 10 1/2 hook and I also starched the basket somewhat so that it would be slightly stiff. I almost forgot; on the rug once again I doubled the yarn for that thickness and it worked quite well.

This project took a few more days, well about a entire week to complete this time, and lots of fun complete them.

No Winners

Well no one posted any comments! Darn, so there was no giveaway but maybe next time and later I will show what I did with the doll.

Here is a fun way to do pineapple upside down cake; use a yellow cake mix and a can of pineapple chunks, pour chunks and juice all into mix beat well with mixer on high speed then add 3 eggs and beat again at high speed. Pour batter into large, well greased bread pan. Now melt a 1/2 cup of butter and mix 2 cups of brown sugar, mix until butter and sugar are crumbly and then sprinkle over top of cake mixture in pan, bake at 350 until golden brown and tooth pick comes out clean.
