Saturday Scrambled Eggs

I raise my right hand and will admit freely – I am not a morning person.  My weekday breakfast consists of two pieces of nine-grain bread Ritchey sticks in the toaster as I’m getting up.  No, there are no lovely breakfasts, no frittatas, no fried sausages, no muffins hot from the oven!  Muffins heated in the microwave perhaps, but that’s as far as it goes!

Saturday is my favorite day of the week – no work, all play!  Well, not exactly no work, but Ritchey and I have the day together!  So even a Saturday breakfast is special!  I’m usually up by 8:00 – push the button for coffee (yes, Ritchey has it ready to go – he will even set the timer if I know what time I will be up!).  Then it’s to the office to post blogs (my two genealogy blogs are generally always ready to go!), check on emails, work on a blog, etc.  This is my coming alive time!  Since Ritchey works so hard during the week, Saturday is his day to sleep in a bit.  By the time he’s up I’m ready for breakfast – even ready to cook it!

This morning it was a skillet of scrambled eggs with lovely additions of chopped country ham, shredded Gruyere cheese and the few herbs Ritchey managed to find out in the frosty morning!  Believe it or not still dill, thyme and rosemary.  So we added just a little of each!  Into the skillet with a nice pat of butter!  Oh, my!  Now how’s that for a Saturday breakfast?
