Scrambled eggs

Tonight was a 15-min meal. I had plans to include an extra veggie (bok choy), but got home late due to some huge work ordeals. I also didn't bother cooking the broccoli stems, though I do love them.

I have been trying to work more veggies into my toddler's diet. He likes eggs, so this was a method.

Scrambled Eggs:

4 eggs (0.50)
1.5 cups broccoli florets (0.19, from discount rack)
1/4 cup chopped onion (0.10)
1/2 Tbsp olive oil (0.05)
1 slice American cheese (0.15)
salt and pepper

Total: 0.99

Chop and steam broccoli in microwave for 3 min. Meanwhile, chop and saute onion in olive oil until beginning to brown. Add broccoli and mash up with a fork (you don't want the kiddo to be able to pick it out!) Stir fry a few minutes until broccoli begins to carmelize a bit.

Beat eggs in a bowl with salt and pepper. Add a little milk (optional). Add eggs to broccoli and onion, cook until eggs are set. Break up American cheese and stir in to melt.

We served this meal with some homemade bread (2 slices, 0.06 each), 1 T light margarine (0.03), and an avocado, sliced (free from a friend's tree).

Dinner total: $1.14 for three people.
