It's grocery shopping day, which means that I have absolutely nothing in my house other than the leftovers and things that weren't used up through the week. With a hungry household, what's a girl to do? Improvise!
Somehow one of the dinners that I had planned wasn't even made. What can I say? It's summer and we're flying by the seat of our pants here on somedays. A good thing for fun, but a bad thing for planning. Whatever caprese salad I had intended on making just didn't fit into our shenanigans... so, caprese style breakfast it is.
With plenty of eggs on hand, I went to work on this knock-your-socks-off omelette that can clearly be tossed together in no time. Got eggs? Check. Greens? Check. Tomatoes? Check! Fresh mozzarella? Double check!
I would have opted for some sort of quiche or frittata, but turning the stove on right now in Texas summer is bad enough. I don't dare even breathe in the direction of my oven right now. It's just that dang hot out and not worth it.
In the end, this caprese style omelette was a hit. Not only allowing me to use up my leftover tidbits, but also filling up the bellies in the household in the best of ways. Leaving me perfectly guilt-free and ready to take on the rest of the day!
