Breakfast for Dinner?...or Dinner for Breakfast!

When you finally feel a sigh of relief that you are on the "mend" again, you can just sit back...relax, and thank God you are "alive and kicking!"...seriously, this is how I'm feeling all this last few days of this week. Actually having more energy, and planning to making more effort to get more work some spring cleaning,  organizing, and plan more exciting healthy menus, and keep concentrating on staying healthy, and on track with my Weight Watchers program.
I have not had any strength or energy making anything after the Spicy Thai Squid project, so last evening I decided to check for all the available stuff I had in my fridge to concoct some healthy dinner. I always have plenty of eggs on hand, fresh veggies and fresh herbs that need to be used up. Also found a nice portion of perfectly cut little veggies, potatoes, zucchini, onion, and I decided to make a Ranch Style egg with my last can of Red Gold petite diced tomatoes. I have to be honest it was fast, easy, and very delicious. You should try it sometimes...have it both ways, breakfast, or dinner, use whatever you have leftover in the fridge...break an egg or two over the vegetables, let it cook for a few minutes, and dinner is served! I did not serve this over tortilla shells, to save on points. Potatoes served as "starch."

Ranch Style Eggs- (Huevos Rancheros)
my own creation

A good portion of leftover cooked potatoes, cooked vegetables, even rice, or pasta will do!
2 cups leftover diced, cooked vegetable
1 cup diced canned, or fresh tomatoes
herbs, such as fresh parsley, basil, or cilantro
seasoning of your choice. ( I used cayenne pepper, garlic salt, cumin, and few drops of hot sauce)
Reheat vegetable in a work or a large nonstick skillet, add the tomatoes, and spices, and heat to a boil.

In a small dish, break an egg into it...

Carefully slide it onto the cooked veggies, make a little well and let it cook until you see the white form.
Adjust seasoning, and sprinkle with your favorite herbs.

You can serve it over tortilla shell but can eat it with a slice of toast, as well!
