A Special Breakfast!

Leftovers… Always a challenge, always an opportunity!  What’s lying around in the refrigerator that needs to be eaten or thrown out?  Will an egg or eggs ‘work’ with this specific leftover or am I just fanaticizing? 

When David II, Amy and our grandsons, David III and Emmett Lee visited us post- Christmas, we all went out to eat a couple of times.  The last meal that we ate out was at a Pan-Asian restaurant in Knoxville named Wok Chow. (More about this restaurant in a future blog…) In any case, Amy couldn’t finish her lunch and she ended up bringing home a whole take out container chock full of promising breakfast opportunity!  
So…This breakfast construction project consisted of re-fried Shrimp Fried Rice with added garlic, onion powder and pepper, topped with 2 slices of pepper jack cheese and three easy-over eggs!

I liked the concept better than the final results… Believe it or not, despite the Shrimp Fried Rice with Asian spices, the pepper jack cheese and the 3 eggs, I ended up adding Tabasco Sauce just to give it a bit of ‘pop’.  This breakfast was OK…but it still missed the high expectations that I’d hoped out for!
Note: Want to see a cute family movie?  During the post-holiday visit, we all went to the theater to see Parental Guidance with Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei.  It was very entertaining… Even our 9 and 12 year old grandsons enjoyed this movie!

Thanks for stopping by for breakfast!
Take Care, Big Daddy Dave


  1. Looks awesome, hope it tasted as good as it did the first time!

  2. It is too bad your leftovers didn't meet your expectations. Hate it when that happens. "Fleeced" = paying $29 for rosti potatoes, salad and coffee (for one) 35 years ago. I tense whenever I see a ski chalet :-). Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary

  3. I have many that don't meet my hopes.

  4. Thanks for taking the time to share this wonderful post with us. Nothing like having a delicious breakfast. Have a great rest of your day.
