Before getting into this post, I want to say thank you to all of my foodie friends for voting my strawberry chamomile granita Top 9! That’s two in one month… June’s been good to me, June’s been real good. LOL.
Now onto this dish… This post is the last in my Lightlife Fridays series. And although my sister is the queen of tofu scramble, I tried my hand at it, and think that I did a pretty good job! Adding the Lightlife Gimme Lean sausage ramps up the protein and with onions, carrots, and mushrooms, this dish is a great way to sneak veggies into breakfast! (Free free to tweak and add in your favorite veggies!).
Lastly, I wanted to thank all of you who left kind comments wishing me a smooth transition out of NC. So far, so good. A lovely couple bought my car (another hint, I’m moving somewhere where I will not need a car) and I moved out of my apartment this afternoon. I still haven’t found anywhere to live in my new city, but I’m going there tomorrow to look at 5 places, so please cross your fingers! And I’m heading home to Western Mass on Monday. I have stockpiled a bunch of recipes, so I plan to stay up on my blogging over the next two semi-hectic months. I also have a great guest post coming up from a community gardener in Durham, and some interesting musings I look forward to sharing with you all. Oh, yes, people… the summer has just begun! Happy Friday! 😀
