Well another St Pattys Day has come and gone.. It was a good one spent with great friends and of course Grumpy.. On my bucket list is going to spend a St Pattys Day in Ireland. Hugs and Kisses to my little one who got a boo boo yesterday , I am sure it will be one of many being that boy boy that he is..Today Marilyn and I are off to get a Manicure this morning and the boys are going to go to Penskes Museum and we are going to get in our last day of shopping and then for dinner we are off to Maggialano's the best restaurant in Phoenix.. That is our opinion anyway...


  • 3 large eggs, plus 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup 2% reduced-fat cottage cheese
  • 4 ounces smoked gouda cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped Kosher salt
  • 1 16-ounce package frozen mixed vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots), thawed
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 scant teaspoon paprika
  • 4 slices multigrain bread


Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. Whisk the whole eggs and whites in a bowl. Add the cottage cheese and whisk until almost smooth. Whisk in the gouda and rosemary.
Cook the garlic in the olive oil in a 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until it starts to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the onion, season with salt and cook 2 minutes. Add the vegetables, increase the heat to high and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium. Spread the egg mixture evenly in the pan. Cook, undisturbed, until a thin crust forms on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Run a rubber spatula around the edge to release the egg from the pan. Continue cooking until the bottom is golden, 2 to 3 more minutes. Sprinkle with the parmesan and paprika; transfer to the oven and bake until just set, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven, cover and let sit, 5 to 7 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with the bread. Do not forget to thaw the vegetables if you do just zap them in the mirco wave for a couple of minutes

Our last night in Phoenix , I am sad but have had a great holiday.. Not looking forward to getting back to the grind but always like the money..LOL. Well off to have a quick breakfast and then enjoy the day with good friends ..
