Recipe or Concoction?

Last week we had an unusual opportunity to get some serious focus on this whole kitchen renovation. Since I had been to the market to pick up my CSA (love the Faucette Farms), I had a bunch of yummy veggies just asking for consumption.

The girls (who do not care for "stuff" in their breakfast) were happily at grandma's house eating their weight in homemade biscuits. So with only myself and Pete to please - I decided to have a veggie scramble breakfast. Aside: I told Pete I was jealous of myself for getting eat this delicious dish. He mentioned pridefulness - I repented.
Here's what I was on my plate: eggs, green peppers, roasted red peppers, leeks (I can't do onions), fresh tomatoes, spinach leaves, cheddar cheese and pesto sauce.

Wanna try it? Here's what to do (although I imagine there are several different approaches). Big hint: Get all your "parts" together and ready so you don't accidentally overcook the eggs.

1. Put a little olive oil or coconut oil in a big frying pan and heat to med high.
2. Begin sauteing peppers and leeks.
3. Add several beaten eggs (I used 5 between us I'm pretty sure) with salt and pepper added.
4. Scramble the eggs and veggies to get them partially cooked.
5. Throw in the roasted red peppers, fresh tomato and spinach.
6. When the eggs are done to your liking, remove from pan and stir in a little pesto sauce (I used half teaspoon to a teaspoon)
7. Grate some cheese over top. Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum Yum.

More renovation pics and stories soon!
