Eggs for Ruby

3 Mar

Ruby just got really fussy and when I looked at the clock I realized it was past her normal dinner time. My kitchen is fairly bare, but I quickly whipped up a delicious little dinner.

First I melted some butter in a sauté pan. We had leftover broccolini and cinnamon curry roast chicken, so I chopped up some of each and added them to the pan. Then I added some chopped tomato, and then a beaten egg. I cooked, stirring with a spatula just until the egg was cooked through, let it cool, and rounded out her meal with two pieces of buttered whole wheat bread. She devoured everything so quickly I didn’t even get a picture.

This was such a quick, easy little meal. Usually Ruby just eats whatever we do, but we are running late tonight and she couldn’t wait any longer. I often give her eggs but loved adding the meat and veggies. Give it a try sometime for your little one–any combination of meat and veg will do!

      Joan, it is so delicious! I am usually not a huge curry fan, but Elise found this recipe (and she and Matty did most of the cooking) and it was excellent. This recipe came out of “The Oprah Magazine Cookbook” (I very highly recommend it), but I also found the link:

      The chicken is perfect–juicy and flavorful–but the tomato yogurt sauce really makes the dish. We served it with rice and some sautéd broccolini. Enjoy!
