Spinach and Goat Cheese Scramble

Are there any Dexter fans in the house?!?

We’ve been hooked since the first season and I think each season has me on the edge of my seat even more than the previous. Season 7 starts September 30th and they just released the trailer this weekend…


Eeee! I am so excited! This one might be the best yet. Have you seen this sneak peek yet? It shows what happens the 2 minutes after season 6 ends – and if you saw the finale episode you’ll understand how crazy awesome this is!

confession: I always sleep pretty crappy when its on – and no it’s not because I am scared of Dexter, I am worried about him. I have a little anxiety about him getting caught. I realize this is irrational but I can’t help it!

Please tell me I’m not the only one excited about this!


Goat Cheese Scramble 4

Weekday breakfasts in our house are pretty lackluster, but weekends? That’s when we devour some yummy breakfast goods.

Goat Cheese Scramble 1

When we go out to eat I like to order omelets (or huevos rancheros, which is my ultimate favorite!). But omelets are a little hard for me to execute at home. They always come out lop sided and a little wonky, so I save myself the trouble and stick to scrambles.

Goat Cheese Scramble 2

Besides, who wants an omelet with cheese only in the middle when you can have all your cheese mixed in?! Not me. I like lots of cheese!

Don’t worry this guy won’t cause too much damage though. You use a mixture of egg yolks and whites – and throw in some spinach and red bell pepper to get some of your veggies in early in the day.

    You’re going to hate me but I don’t like Dexter. BUT the only reason is because I decided that one winter when we were snowed in, I decided to go rent season 1 and watch it all by myself. I don’t like gore or blood and all that stuff so I immediately turned it off. If I had watched it with someone else, I probably would’ve been hooked too, lol…this spinach and goat cheese scramble is the perfect breakfast!! I love the flavors that you have going on in there. Love goat cheese!!!

      That’s okay! I didn’t like it at first either! My husband started watching it and I just thought it was creepy…but somehow by the end of the 3rd episode I was hooked! I definitely wouldn’t have stuck with it if it wasn’t for him liking it :) It is pretty bloody (the intro fresked me out for a long time!).

      I love goat cheese too!
