Good evening my friends on my lot! I discussed once making scrambled eggs with my peer, Courtney, but it was more she showed me how. They turned out good and i wrote about it back then because i thought i was goung to make them on my own after that time about two weeks ago. But i never made them on my own as i was afraid again. But today Courtney came over for her usual weekly Wednesday visit..i decided to not go out because it was so, so hot today and didn't have to do anything important, so stayed home so i can attempt to make scrambled eggs ALL BY MYSELF Courtney just watched me to supervise. She didn't have to tell me anything! I made three eggs worth and i had a scrambled egg sandwich on toast with cheese and the precooked bacon my sister gets me at Sam's club that i heat a few seconds in the microwave for dinner tonight. Then will have another sandwich of them tomorrow for one of my meals, just don't know which one yet! It was qute yummy not to pat myself on the back What are you having for dinner tonight? Bonus question: what is your favorite way to make eggs?

Thank you! Yes, it was very delicious! I plan on having another one for breakfast this morning! I like boiled eggs but only have them whenever i go to or order food for home delivery from Walmart. They are a lot cheaper there than the grocery store. Ordering food for home delivery is too stressful, so i going to regular grocery store next week with Courtney thus i won't be having them as they are way too expensive at regular grocery store where we are going

@DaddyEvil The grocery store wants almost $4+ for six eggs! But Walmart if i remember correctly is less than $2 for six. I may try to make some by myself the next time i get eggs next week as Courtney and i are going to the library and grocery shopping next week.

WOW, congratulations, now you know that you can make them if you like. I like scrambled eggs, but also omelette particularly with mushrooms.

Thank you!!!! I can make them any time i feel like eating them. i had them as a sandwich for breakfast today, i finished the ones i made yesterday but won't make new ones right away because tomorrow is pancakes but i won't make the pancakes until i can have Courtney show me how to make them, i will have frozen ones tomorrow. I have to eat all the frozen ones i have before i try to make them myself when we have time for Courtney to show me how to make them. I will have to have Courtney show me how to make an omelet. but no mushrooms as i don't really care for them. i don't remember the last time i had an omelet. neither of my parents knew how to make them so haven't had one since i had one in a restaurant decades ago. my nurse and case manager told me i should make them when i had my last injection and suggested green peppers, and ham to be in the omelet

@Marty1 I like omelettes in many ways, also with zucchini or with cheese, the frittata is not very different from the omelette, I like them both.

@LadyDuck what is a frittata? i have heard of it but have no idea what it is. is it hard to make? Do you grow zucchini in your garden? around here anybody i ever knew who grew zucchini had way too many and were giving them away to all their friends I would love an omelet with cheese. what kind do you use? I put a slice of American cheese on my scrambled eggs sandwich and it was so good that way! cheese seems to go with eggs well.

Yes, the sandwich was delicious! i love scrambled eggs, but boiled eggs are my favorite way to eat eggs! boiled eggs are more time consuming to make than a pan of scrambled eggs

Congratulations. I knew you could do it! I had a protein bar and some raspberry yogurt. I like eggs scrambled, in egg salad and deviled.

Thank you! I thought i could do it but was afraid to try it myself before i tried and succeeded yesterday. i had the rest of them for breakfast as a sandwich again, this morning! do the protein bars that you eat have a flavor? if so, what flavor did you have? i love raspberry yogurt! but the store where i grocery shop doesn't always have raspberry Yoplait yogurt which is my favorite brand so get mostly orange cream and strawberry which is okay as they are both delicious!

@Marty1 I like the Greek yogurt best. The protein bars I had this time were in an assortment pack - Peanuts, almonds and dark chocolate, Peanut butter and dark chocolate and Salted caramel, peanuts and almonds.

@LindaOHio yummy! I am happy my dinner is in a half-hour as you made me hungry! I like one brand of Greek Yogurt but I seldom buy it. my favorite is Yoplait as i like the flavors the best. and with Greek Yogurt the yogurt gathers some kind of liquid on top of it once in a while and i don't like that. but that brand and i forget its name is the only one i like the taste

Thanks! We made the eggs you like last week, but i watched that time. I will make those another week. Next week we have to go out, so it may not be for a while. The toast dipped in the runny yolk is delicious too!

Thanks! Yes, i do plan to have scrambled eggs any time i feel like having them! I will have a sandwich again for breakfast in the morning. I never had an egg salad. I don't usually boil eggs, But if i order food from Walmart i will order some eggs already boiled and peeled. But ordering groceries is too stressful so we are going to a grocery store next week and won't be getting them because they are so expensive everywhere but Wal-Mart.

@Marty1 For egg salad all you do is boil a few eggs, peel them, chop them up and stir in a little mayo and mustard if you like. Your peer might show you if she has time.

Thank you! I was thinking of buying some fresh vegetables to add to the head of lettuce that i always buy when Courtney takes me grocery shopping and we are going next Wednesday. I may also buy some cooked fried chicken and pull it apart and put it in my salad. i have done that before and it is really yummy!

I am not a fan of eggs so I won't be making them. However, I also can't answer what I'm eating, because I honestly don't know yet. I'll think of something though.

That's okay, not everyone likes eggs. I asked that question about dinner forgetting others don't eat dinner at 3 in the afternoon like i do. I eat early and might need a snack before going to bed in a little while!
