Happy Hump Day!

I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday!  Time flies when you spend your days face-deep in a pile of textbooks.  I have a huge test tonight, so my day will be spent with this:

I was hoping for another sunny study sesh, but it’s actually windy and pretty dreary-looking outside today.

Time for a funny story:  So, I’ve always heard the term “Hump Day”- I first heard it when I got to college, and I knew it was what everyone said on Wednesday.  Apparently, I have a dirty mind, because I have always thought that people were so excited about “Hump Day” because you’re supposed to…ya know…! I had an interview this year on a Wednesday, and the first thing the woman interviewing me said was, “Well, HAPPY HUMP DAY!” I almost fell out of my chair.  When I told Corey about that, he laughed and told me I’m special and then explained that the term is used to refer to getting over the “hump” in the middle of the week.  Classic mistake.


Corey made me breakfast this morning in the form of a good ol’ egg sandwich.

  • 1 Toasted Nature’s Own Whole Wheat Sandwich Thin
  • 1 fried egg white
  • 1 wedge Laughing Cow Light French Onion cheese


Time to hit the books.  Hope everyone has a great HUMP DAY! (Especially if you choose to spend it the way I originally thought it was spent! 😉 )

Frittata Time!

The word “frittata” just sounds intimidating, so I was nervous to attempt this for the first time.  What I discovered is that this is simply a fancy name for baked scrambled eggs! I was in one of those “breakfast-for-dinner” moods, so I whipped this up and served it with my favorite (and easiest!) side dish: Bird’s Eye Steamfresh Lightly Sauced Sides Roasted New Potatoes with Chive Butter Sauce.

Ham and Asparagus Frittata

Servings: 4


6 eggs, beaten

5 oz. deli ham, chopped

1 can of asparagus tipped, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup asiago cheese, shredded

1/2 medium onion, chopped

2 tablespoons Smart Balance

1 tomato, seeded and diced


Preheat oven to broil. In an oven-safe skillet, melt 2 tablespoons Smart Balance.  Saute the onions until translucent.  In a bowl, beat the eggs together and mix in the asparagus, ham, tomato, and asiago.

Pour mixture into the pan, mix, and then allow the bottom to cook and “set up”.

Once it starts to cook through up to the top, place the skillet in the oven under the broiler for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until it becomes set all the way through and fluffy.  Serve immediately.
