Quick shout out to my friend Jamie who had her birthday yesterday!! We live on opposite coasts so instead of sharing a beverage I promised to drink a little and post about it : ) Saturday was another brutally warm day in DC. Check out exhibit A:
Well the day started out with an AMAZING breakfast. I am going to switch things up a little and show the pictures then put the “recipe” / the steps of how everything was made!
Yummy right?? Let’s start with the eggs!
Sausage and Onion Scramble
1/2 a green bell pepper
In a bit of olive oil saute over medium heat sausage, onions and green onions. Lightly salt and pepper. I used a precooked sausage so it was more of a warm up for me. Cook until the onions begin to turn golden brown. In a small bowl / container crack your eggs and beat with a folk until all the yolks are broken and everything in well mixed. Add in salt, pepper and garlic pepper. Don’t be shy with the seasoning. Once onions are finished toss in spinach and cook until slightly wilted, add in eggs and turn up the heat to medium high. Let sit for a few minutes until eggs start to become opaque. At this point you can either A) try to flip the whole thing, B) try to flip half at a time C) flip over a bit at a time and turn into a scramble. I chose C! I moved every one around until I no longer saw any runny whites or yolks.
Yukon Gold and Red Onion Home Fries
4 small yukon gold potatoes
1/4 – 1/2 red onion
In a large pan combine all the ingredients and cook for 10 – 15 minutes minutes over medium heat. Taste test along the way to add in more seasoning as needed!
Now we bring it all together! Grab yourself your favorite tortilla – I went for whole wheat – and some cheese. Pile on the eggs (and the potatoes if you so choose) into the tortilla and add as much cheese as your heart desires. I used 2 slices of Kraft 2% American, next time I would just use one though. AND ENJOY!!
Next up on my Saturday was wineries!! Initially I was just supposed to go to one winery for a tasting, olive oil tasting (amazinggg) and a tour of the vineyard. We ended up stopping at 2 other wineries and stocking up on some great cheese, wine and jam!
All three of the wineries were amazing!! My personal favorite for the wine was Granite Heights. I bought their dessert wine called Ashby. It was AMAZING!! 18% proof and made with brandy and a few red grapes. I can not gush about it enough. I was a big fan of a few of their other wines as well.
Morais Vineyards has some fantastic whites but the thing that really got me was the building and the views. They just opened for tasting over Easter weekend and the building is just breath taking. We were able to get a full tour and we astonished! I wish I had more pictures to share!
