March Madness is officially heeeeeeere. I look forward to this all year, and it always go by so quickly! Trying to savor it. I’ve spent some time this morning working on my bracket, and do this every time a Sportscenter announcer says they believe Arizona will make it to the Final Four.
(This is my favorite band member and he has the SWEETEST dance moves. Never graduate.)
Today was pretty chill. I taught BODYPUMP -and switched it up by using some older tracks- and took Livi her gymnastics class.
This is the latest Suja obsession: it tastes like a creamy dessert. I’m going to try and replicate it at home.
Breakfast this morning was leftovers from last night, which turned out 283748x better than I anticipated. I mean, if you’re going to put goat cheese and egg together in a dish and bake it, it’s destined to be tasty, but this was amaaaaazing.
I figured we’d have plenty of leftovers to photograph this morning in the sunlight, and we ate more than half the pan. The Pilot and I happily finished it this morning. ?
I’m happy everyone in the family seemed to love it. We’ve been in a bit of a chicken rut lately, and I’ve been trying to explore some different options. Grilled chicken or salmon has become our default, and I used to make so many vegetarian dinners on a regular basis. I’m trying to add some spice back into the rotation.
Since Easter is just around the corner, and visions of my nana’s famous egg dish dance in my head, I thought I’d whip up something similar, using my favorite cheeses (goat cheese and Manchego!) and also make it gluten-free for my gf friends. If you’re looking for a spring brunch idea, or just trying to switch up the dinner rotation, I must say that this is an excellent choice.
The bottom layer is creaming goat cheese, layered with savory green chiles,
fluffy egg, and golden cheese on top. It’s delicious by itself, but especially amazing with chunky salsa and wrapped in a tortilla.
Just dooooo it.
