The best part of waking up...

I am not a morning person. I hate mornings. I hate getting out of bed. Hubby knows that I am not accountable for anything I say or do within the 30 minutes of me waking up. My dogs even know not to bother me. The only thing that gets me going on the weekends (where there is no fear of getting fired for not rolling my lazy ass out of bed) is being able to make Breakfast.

When I was in elementary school my parents used to carry me down the stairs to the breakfast table. Every morning my Nonno, aka grandpa to you non-Italians, used to come over and bring us fresh bread from the bakery. He used to poke fun at me for never waking up. Even after breakfast my mom or Tata (no idea why we called him this) would have to check on me to make sure I was up because the second I went back upstairs I would crawl back into my nice, soft, warm, purple flower covered bed and go back to sleep.

When I got too big for Tata to carry me to the breakfast table he would just fill up a cup of water and dump it over my head to wake me up. HILARIOUS Tata...I'm still laughing. Oh man if my husband tried to pull that with me now I'd make his coffee flavored with Arsenic.

A light start breakfast (for 2)

6 Egg whites
2 Slices of Provolone or Alpine Lace
1/2 Cup of Slices Tomatoes
Sprinkle of Dill

Prep time 5 Minutes
Cook Time 7 Minutes

Lightly grease the bottom of an omelet pan over medium heat. Pour in the egg whites. Let it cook for 2 minutes each side.

Layer the cheese on the bottom the the tomato slices on top sprinkle with dill. Flip the omelet over and let it sit for about a minute so the cheese melts.

serve with coffee....lots and lots of coffee.
