First things first, I switched internet providers and now it's up and running. Completely fast service I tell ya!! Plus it was way simpler to set up. It I felt like I was going through withdrawal from not being able to check blogs and emails at home even for one day. Eek! Talk about technology dependent. Anyway, still trying to clean out the fridge and pantry. It's officially one week before my trip. It's coming down to the wire to get thing done before my departure next week. My mind's filled with mental lists, checking off one item at a time. I'm really excited. A week seems so long when you know a trip is just right around the corner.
This is another version of pasta scramble I had many some time last year. This time using some orzo pasta. Two eggs, some dry herbs and diced tomato. I'd probably add more into it like mushrooms, or spinach, or maybe even some sausage and bacon. Mmmmm...I can think of more, but it's pretty late as I write this post and I'm hankering for a midnight snack.
Pasta Scramble 2.0
1/2 c uncooked orzo
2 eggs - lightly beaten
1/3 c diced tomato - fresh or canned
1 tsp oregano
pinch of salt
Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Lightly salt the water and drizzle a little olive oil. When the water is boiling add the orzo and cook until al dente. Drain out the water well then place the orzo back into the small pot. Add the eggs and continually toss together until the eggs have fully cooked and coated the pasta. Then add in the oregano and tomato and toss together again for a few minutes. Season with a pinch of salt.
