Threw this together this morning for breakfast and it was really good so thought I would share...
I took one flour tortilla out of the freezer (I keep them in a freezer bag and separate them with foil) and heated it in the micro till barely warm.
I fried a egg and broke the yoke so there would be no runny. I put shredded cheese on the tortilla added one slice of ham from the deli and put the egg cut in slices on top of the ham and added more cheese. Folded it over and cooked it in the skillet until lightly browned on both sides. Yum...

Thought I would share some pictures of a hospital volunteer day..
Heavy traffic driving in
Pretty vegetation along the way...
Selling hay here and they are covered because of the rains...
Headed into the hospital are these amazing grasses...
Banner Thunderbird Hospital is a level 1 adult trauma Center.
Main entrance
Looking to the left of entering..
The elevator doors open on the second floor and there is our desk

My view sitting at the desk
One area of the waiting room
The ICU doors we have to open for visitors, on the west side is the CVICU doors

You can tell I sit on the left because there is my yarn:) (actually my partner didn't come today) so I was on my own. This week I had a opportunity to help a person who was blind and waiting on a loved one having surgery.

This is a nifty little recipe for a quick and easy lunch or dinner and can keep the ingredients on hand.
1 frozen package of macaroni and cheese (I used Michelinas)
1 can tuna
Handful of frozen peas
Cook the mac and cheese in the microwave but about half way through stir in drained tuna and peas and continue to heat till all is hot. I added more shredded cheese:)
This made enough for me to have two lunches. Could also do the same but use chicken and frozen corn.

I think most of you know that hubby and I eat out every night except for Tues. I cook on Tuesday and most of my friends think this is funny but it is the way it is. I thought I would share with you some of our eating places so here is the first one.
Links neighborhood grill This is a  country club like place on a golf course.

Turning onto the parkway is the pretty clock with the flowers in it.

Pretty rock work at the entrance

Looking out on the golf course

Nothing fancy inside and simple food but good service and this is the view on your out...
After dark the tree has up lights.
This is our Thursday night place.

1 head of Bok choy washed and diced
2 large carrots peeled and made into matchsticks

Tues. night dinners

Oh me, oh my I seem to have lost my mojo on this. I am still cooking on Tues. but there have been several that just wasn't that great and I did a couple of already made ones. One of my disappointments was a pot roast. I followed the directions to a tee...brown meat add liquids and cook on very low heat or a couple of hours. I had visions of the meat just falling away but no...tough as nails. The potatoes, carrots and onions were wonderful.

This past week I made a Chicken Fettuccine and it was good but really too rich so I won't be making it again but this one was different because along with mushrooms they added pine nuts and that was really good. I added a spinach salad that was just great and straight from a bag. I had left over mushrooms so added that too but if you have not tried these all in one salads you should. You could easily add shredded chicken and it would make a whole meal.
