Floretine scramble

Floretine scramble

Every Friday night, I tell myself I am going to go get my car washed. It hasn’t been washed in over a year….thanks to water restrictions and thanks to my lazy bum, I mean when I drive to the car wash at about 7 the line is already about 20 cars long and the car wash only opens at 9.

Then there is the whole thing of sitting outside with people and making small chit chat when I would rather be reading a book and drinking a cup of coffee while I wait. I tried to get it valet once, seeing as all my friends were doing it. I also happened to ask for the full house, without checking the price, seeing as the owner knew my father.

That meant nothing when he said that will be….I almost collapsed. Never in my life had I paid soo much for 1 car wash. That was the one and only time I had a valet.

I was up early this Saturday again and yet I still somehow got to the car wash 20 cars late, I just give up. Its my car after all, so it might have a layer of dog hair on every possible surface and there might be permanent coffee ring mark in the cup holder and the back seat windows might be covered in dog spit, and I might have a collection of used tissues under the passenger seat and the boot might have food stains on the mats, but it gets me where I want.

Seeing as I skipped breakfast to get to the car wash early and my dad was still nibbling on salty cracks and cheese when I got back home. He was crying he wanted something more filling nothing dry like the crackers that required him to drink tea to make it go down. He can be dramatic at times to.

I decided to treat the old timer and make Florentine scramble. I was soo caught up in the morning that I forget to add the cheese to the eggs, so it was not as stringy but it still tasted delicious.

This is one of Ree Drummonds recipes. I love The Pioneer women’s meals… delicious and my family enjoy its, okay well my mother, my dad says she has tooo many beans in her dishes.
