Mid-Day Breakfast Treats

Finally, I had a super busy weekend! This morning I woke up early, ate some Cracklava Baklava, began doing laundry, and went back to sleep.  This proved to be such a silly move, because not only did I wake up around 11(!!!!) but I woke up starving.  I knew breakfast would be an experiment.

I started off by grating 2 Red Potatoes. I heated up a frying pan, threw in a lil olive oil, and cooked up some garlic.

Once that was nice and browned, I added more olive oil, and the potatoes, along with salt, pepper, and parsley for some color.  As that cooked (it took a while, maybe 15-20 mins) I got started on the sandwiches.

I heated up my griddle-thingie, and on one side cooked up some turkey lunch meat, and on the other side I fried up some eggs.  I ended up making 4 eggs total, 1 just seemed too little once it was on my plate!

I sliced up the Ciabatta bread, and starting from the bottom I layered:
Cheddar Cheese
Fried Turkey
2 Eggs
Raw Spinach (on mine)
Cooked Hash Browns
Cheddar Cheese
top of the Ciabatta bread

I then threw it on my panini maker, and voila! A wonderful breakfast sandwich!

Yesterday I went to 2 parties!! I never go to parties! The first one consisted of 3 other pregnant ladies (Carrie, Katie, Genny)... let me explain.   Facebook allows you to stalk  catch up with old friends... and apparently 5 other friends I went to high school with are pregnant too, due around the same time, delivering in the same hospital, and live around each other! It was so nice to meet, eat, talk and catch up with people I literally haven't seen or spoken to in over 10 years!

The second party was my friend Andrea's 30th birthday party!!

Andrea, Me, and Baby Me

We went to dinner at a place called PinHead Susans's, which I have never been too.  We sat in the party room and there were tons of ladies there, it was really fun!! I ordered the Brushetta Chicken Sandwich (Grilled chicken covered in a mixture of diced tomatoes, onions, basil and melted mozzarella cheese served on a grilled ciabata roll smeared with pesto mayo) and a side of Sweet Potato Fries which were absolutely amazing! Can I add I was the only person who actually finished more than half of my food?! (Granted, I wasn't drinking, but still).

After, I tagged along to Clinton's Ditch for a little bit, where people thought Andrea was turning 21(!!) but I called it an early night because I'm old (28!!), pregnant, tired, and married!

I also wanted to let you know that I posted some recipes on Brittany's Seasonal Sundays, and This Weeks Cravings which posts really wonderful recipe ideas.
