~Tasty Tuesday~ Egg over Spinach

So here's a lowcarb quickie
I have a thing for this dish
I may even eat it too much
to top it off its all cooked in one pan
Pictured here the egg is fried, please note its super great pouched as well
Let's get started
in a saucepan add in a 1/4 cup water
a big handful fresh spinach
season with salt & pepper
cook spinach down, stir occasionally
once cooked through remove to plate
add to pan 2 slices of bacon
cook through
remove to drain
in bacon grease fry up egg
season if you'd like
cook through
top spinach with egg
crumble bacon on top of egg
add fresh shredded Parmesan cheese

An update of sorts

Wow, so its been a while, there's really no reason or excuse.
Life -as it goes- happens.
Chris has started HS Soccer! WooHoo!
Alex is headed back to school this week and hopefully starting Baseball after Spring Break.
Jullian just made SuperStarStudent and totally deserved it, Swimming lessons are in the near future.
Lyla is 4! Talking up a storm and showing a full blown girly attitude, sleeping very well I might add, swimming for is in too on the agenda.
Hubby has lost a bit of weight, yay! Was up for and received the Saint Barbaras Award a few weeks ago, getting ready now to head out to OK for a few weeks.
Me, a few pounds down, felt pretty good in my dress, realizing that I do need to keep up the hair color and spend a bit of time on my brows, it really does wonders at helping me look not so old.
