Breakfast comes around early on the farm. With it we celebrate the new day. My husband uses breakfast as a break time. He generally is up before 5 AM. His day has already been very active. My day does not start that early, but I purpose to spend time reading my Bible before breakfast. Before the busy day chores take my attention, I set aside time to take in spiritual food that comes through God’s Word.
I have not eaten bread, toast, bagels, muffins, donuts or cereal since September. So what, you might ask, are my alternatives for the first meal of my day?
My daughter and I have been partners in our new way of eating. Here is one recipe that she has found to be very satisfying for breakfast. You might like to try it. This recipe can be altered depending on each person’s individual tastes. Note: If your preference does not lean toward spices you may want to decrease some of the herbs.
- 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- scant 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp. oregano leaves
- 1/8 tsp. basil
- 1-1/2 tsp. milk
- scant 3/4 tsp. honey
- 2 eggs
Mix together the spices, milk and honey in a small bowl. Add the eggs and beat them. Place in a hot, greased pan and cook while stirring occasionally.
The honey gives a faint sweetness. The aroma from the herbs make this dish very appetizing. The short after-taste of the herbs contributes to the feeling of satisfaction after eating your meal. I hope you enjoy this idea from our kitchen.
For another adventure with eggs, you might like to try another little recipe.
Eggs might also contribute to your appreciation of chickens. The Rooster and Setting Hen may catch your eye. We have these designs in note card format. The Rooster is also available in an 8″ x 10″ print. To inquire about the 8″ x 10″ print, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
