Recipe: Mel’s Kickin’ Fajita Scramble


  • 1 egg + 2 whites, beaten together
  • fresh peppers and onions (I used green and red peppers)
  • leftover fajita vegetables (super-easy…sautee peppers and onions with taco seasoning until charred to a crisp..hehe)
  • diced or sliced fresh tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp fat free sour cream
  • hot sauce
  • taco sauce


  1. toss fresh peppers and onions in a pan with leftover fajita veggies on medium heat.  Add fresh tomatoes after a minute or so.  They don’t need as long.
  2. when fresh veggies are still crunchy but have lost a little color, add eggs and scramble.  When almost firm, add hot sauce to taste and 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  3. serve topped with taco sauce and sour cream

I ate mine atop a torn whole-wheat tortilla.


Why Sometimes, You Need to Do Nothing…

This week has been pretty stressful; with my manager on temporary assignment at our sister company, I’ve been finding myself in more meetings and conference calls than I’m used to.  School started this week, which left me really overwhelmed at the beginning of the week, until I got a grasp of the expectations.  A week like this is a perfect example of why, sometimes, we need to take some time to do absolutely NOTHING.

This morning, I woke up at 7:30.  I watched tv and journaled some, and then Joey made coffee and I made breafkast:

The ingredients of this omelet are:

  • 1 egg + 2 whites and a splash of soymilk
  • 1/2 cup peppers (green, red, yellow)
  • 1/2 cup onions
  • 2 tbsp cheddar cheese
  • hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp fat free sour cream

My morning is being spent enjoying coffee, surfing the interwebs, and watching Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures and MST3K.  And playing with the Kins.  We hadn’t done Sock of Death in a while, so we played that this morning and my scab-free days are over. 

Sometimes, we just need to take some time to rest our bodies and our minds, to let go of the stress for a while and let ourselves enjoy the peace:).

Today’s schedule includes relaxing through lunch, hitting the Wally World, the gym, and then relaxing this evening and making Sweet Potato Gnocchi!
