Happy Birthday Breakfast

Today is my wonderful husband’s 60th birthday. Normally, this would be an occasion calling for a BIG party with lots of friends and family, but given our current global situation, I am trying to find small ways to celebrate him throughout the day.

His favourite meal is breakfast, and he always has to have salsa with his eggs, so I started his day with Huevos Rancheros Egg Cakes from alive.

These are easy to make and delicious. Extras can be stored in the fridge or even frozen for later. They are portable and would also be good for lunches or dinners, served with a salad.

Wonton Soup

And the theme of tonight’s meal (and many, many more to come) is what is in the fridge that needs to be used up? Broccoli you say! What about Wonton Soup. The broth recipe is from recipetineats (and includes lots of garlic and ginger). I would half the sugar, if not take it all out, as the cooking wine is quite sweet already. I used mini chicken and cilantro wontons from Costco, and then threw in broccoli, carrots and mushrooms. Yum! 


Yesterday, I mentioned movement as one of the pillars of health. Another is nutrition. Nutrition is key, and it doesn’t have to be complicated. Today I threw together a yummy Greek salad with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh oregano and pepper as a dressing. Delicious!
