Dinner For One...Sort Of A Huevo Ranchero Minus Tortilla!


My wife and I ended up on different schedules yesterday, so when I got home, she was on her way to class. I had some leftover taco meat, a hunk of colby cheese left just big enough for one serving, and a dab of jalepeno salsa- both red and green... I fried one egg, over easy, put the meat and cheese on it until cheese melted, put it on a plate, and poured on the salsa! This is what a guy would eat when no one was looking...
The weather frauds predicted snow flurries for Tues., but no way is that going to happen- way too warm for that, thank God...

except that a guy would have two or three eggs - because no one was looking.

Mona said...

That was a perfect combo!
Tortilla is made just the way we make our rotis ( check out on The Youtube & you will find no difference). Except, we make them three times a day, fresh, from the scratch, for each meal!

Really? its still snowing?
& we are sweltering in a 110 already ( 43 degrees celcius )

DogB- Good point! I wasn't that hungry last night, or it would have been two- in the tortilla!
Mona- 110F???? Geez, that's too hot for anybody! You make snow look good...

That sort of cooking could get you a fine job at my favorite Mexican joint. Plus it has to be a bit warmer here in the Twin Cities. We're expecting a whopping 50 degrees today!

G-Man said...

Yep Doggybloggy...
That would be a 3 egger pour moi!!

Leighann said...

Yum-O! I think I know what we'll have for dinner tonight. The kids love stuff that they can "build" on their own!

Akelamalu said...

MWM would have made himself beans on toast! :(

Lynda said...

My husband would eat that even if people were looking. He would also ask for beans and tortillas.

Dana said...

I've served this when everyone was looking!

Anndi said...

One of my all time favourite ways to eat eggs!

buffalodickdy said...

sornie- I really would like to have a simple job someday- soon!
G-man- I know, I probably sounded wimpy with only one egg- but I had a big lunch!
leighann- Do it for me, not Rachael Ray.....
Ake- Beans? Jebus H. Cripes on a bicycle! Nobody is that hard up for a meal....
lynda- Slap him for me- guys eat meat or when threatened- protein!
dana- This is from a woman we have trouble keeping clothes on? Not that I mind...
Marmy- Good to see you're alive! I've missed you too, and really hope you're doing well after the surgery... You on drugs.. what a moment that must have been!
Snowniece- How hard it was not to make a comment on that omelette.. a wardrobe malfunction on you would look good- but I'm your Uncle Buf, so I couldn't even look...
anndi- You mean me cooking for you? I would!

Gene Bach said...

Nothing better than making something out of nothing. I have done the same thing many times. The first bite is always an adventure. LOL

Fenrisar said...

Beth said...

Odat said...

I would eat that in public...lol.
Sounds good....

Roger said...

pinknest said...

mmmm...i've been in the mood lately for such things! but not the snow...no no. lately i've noticed a never-ending supply of tortillas in my fridge.

Anndi said...

Woohoo!! You would?! YAY!

Tanya Kristine said...

Urban Vegan said...

Being a weather person is the only job you get paid to be consistently wrong.

No snow. No snow. No snow.

Jeff B said...

I'll take two please.

buffalodickdy said...

gene- It's kind of fun to create, rather than follow a recipe..
beth- We haven't done a major stock up at the store- chili cook offs two weeks in a row...
odat- It actually hit the spot!
rog- My wife would not have eaten it!
pink- I'm down to two- and they're kind of stale...
anndi- Whenever you're in the neighborhood...
tanya- soft or crunchy, both good!
UrbanV- They use bad weather like "The Boogy Man"...
jeff- Two is about right, I just wasn't too hungry!

Dana said...

Hey Buff! I resemble that remark. And for the record, sometimes I even cook half-nekkid *wink*

Akelamalu said...

Heinz baked beans in tomato sauce on toast is MWM's favourite meal - when he's cooking!
