Letting Go

I love this set.  I find the blue and black mingling of colors, with other shadings subtly creeping in, to be absolutely stunning.  I remember the shopping trip when we picked this set out, in a Target near Largo, Maryland in early 2011.

It may not seem like a big deal, but every time I look at this set, it hurts a little.  That loss of what was in most respects a wonderful relationship, and loss of a someone who had become one of my dearest, closest friends, hurts.
 As much as I treasured that relationship, it's time to stop reminding myself daily that life is not As It Was.

Life is change.  There are new seasons, as certainly as old ones fade and recede.  And life goes on.

Dice jalapenos.

 Cut two slices of bacon into strips about 4" long, and saute.  Add jalapenos and about a tablespoon of diced onions after the bacon is halfway cooked.  When the onion is browned, turn the heat up briefly and add either 1 whipped egg or 3 tablespoons of egg white.  After about 40 seconds, reduce heat and add a tablespoon of shredded 2% cheese.  Cover.

Toast a sliced bagel or another bread about the same size.  I used a sesame kaiser roll.

Fold edges, flip.  Cut heat off.

Pull toast out of toaster over, and apply a thin coating of Greek cream cheese to each side.  Place your mini omelette atop your toast.  Enjoy.
