Leftover French Fry Breakfast Skillet

How do you get leftover french fries crispy again?

Simply use a cast iron skillet.  That way the leftover french fries start to cook and crisp up as the eggs start to set.4.27 weekend 031

While this was delicious, I have to say – Tony’s eggs are way better than mine!  Maybe because they are made with love. Red heart

I was a pretty busy beaver yesterday.  I ended up doing my meal plan for the week, shopping list and blog schedule.  I think it’s time to clean my desk again – so much crap accumulates on it!

I left the house, went to vacuum my car, went to the Dollar Store to stock up on more tupperware, went to Bed Bath & Beyond and bought a new muffin tin, then went to the grocery store.  I love using my cash from the restaurant to pay for groceries – makes me feel like I don’t spend actual money on food.  I know that sounds weird!  Not bad yesterday – $78!

While I was out I got the cutest snapchat from my step-son Joe – how cute are their dogs?!

I have to send some link love to Kim – she posted her recent meal plan this week now that her kids are back in school after spring break and t-ball season starts.  One of the coolest ideas she had was to make oven tacos!  That way you can portion out all the meat and cheese and everyone can eat at the same time – just add the desired toppings.  Awesome idea Kim!

I am actually on my way to the Outpatient Pavilion on my way to work this morning.  At my last diabetes appointment I was supposed to have a fasting blood test done, and I didn’t know it, so I have to run and get my blood drawn before work.  It’s always a good idea to know what your numbers are.  I’ve only put it off for four weeks – yikes!

It’s rainy and cold today – blah – oh well, it’s Monday, what can you expect?  Make it a great day!
