a simple quick meal

Our days are packed with school, work, homework, soccer games, ballet recitals, school plays, dinners, gym sessions, dates, meetings and everything in between.  A recipe for quick meals are a must necessity. A simple solution to breakfast, lunch or dinner — yes, all three– is eggs.

Good ol’ fashioned boiled eggs work great for any meal even as a snack too.  They are easy to make, they don’t take long to prepare, a good source of protein and are perfect for non-cooks.  Try it!

Preparation (serves 2)

  1. Boil ’em– Put 4 -5 eggs in a pot of water on the stove.  Let the water immerse the eggs and cover the pot to bring it to a boil for 7 minutes.  Turn the stove off and let the eggs sit in the hot water for another 5 minutes.
  2. Cool ’em -Take the eggs out of the pot and place them in a bowl of cold water for 3 minutes.
  3. Shell ’em – Take each egg out and tap it on kitchen counter or hit it with the back of a spoon to crack the shell.  Place the eggs back in the cold water and begin to remove all the shells completely.
  4. Cut ’em – Cut the eggs in half to allow faster cooling.
  5. Decorate ’em – Toss in cut up shallots, a sprinkle paprika, black pepper and a pinch of salt to flavor.  Adding a drizzle of olive oil fancies it up too.
