How to apologise without actually apologising by cooking breakfast and in turn making yourself out to be Martha freaking Stewart

Yep exactly as the title suggests I successfully earned massive brownie points all by cooking a simple and easy breakfast!! 
A couple of weeks ago I had been slightly cranky towards the HOTH all day on the Saturday so on the Sunday morning I decided to cook him breaky.  This was after I slept on the lounge with the baby and had been up since 6 with both boys.  I know I am such a matyr!!
At 830am I started cooking it was done by 9 and I was the best!!
I love easy no fuss meals and this was exactly that.  I used 6 eggs as I knew the vultures/children would want some even though they had had breakfast earlier.  I only had 5 pieces of bacon so the last one was all egg and that worked perfectly so its a good option for vegetarians.  I added a handful of grated cheese in too. I followed the recipe just used less ingredients and it worked and looked exactly like the picture!!  Once the very basic prep was done it cooked itself which I love!!

I also made my Chili and Garlic Mushrooms
  • Get some mushrooms.  You can chop them or leave them whole.
  • Put them in a saucepan with some crushed garlic, a chopped whole chili and a small amount of butter.  I like garlic so I put a couple of cloves in and I take the seeds out of the chili.  There is no need to add the butter but it makes a sauce.
  • I cook them on high for a minute then turn it to low, put the lid on and leave it for about half an hour, stirring if and when I think about it.
  • Serve with whatever  It was seriously good with the eggs and toast!!
  • Enjoy!!
The HOTH actually got up just before I served it but was very impressed by my efforts although I did confess that it took very little effort!!

This why I love the internet and blogging so much  I love discovering things like this!!  Thanks to kirsten for this fantastic idea!! I will also be trying her http://kirstenandco.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/gnocchi-topped-cottage-pie.html in the next couple of weeks too!!
