I've been trying to eat earlier in the day compared to my usual habits, which means consistently eating breakfast. (Coffee is non-negotiable, regardless of whether it's healthy or not.)
There are a number of classics that are good, of course, but they tend to be really high calorie and a bit of a pain to cook. Here seems to be my best relatively low-cal, high fiber, easy to prepare breakfast:

A bit over a week ago I was visiting my mom, who decided to have all of us kids (there are four of us) over for dinner. I ended up cooking the sirloin roast she bought and it came out pretty well.
It was a seven pound sirloin which had been strung by the butcher. I let it stand for a while to come to room temp. I don't think I did that long enough but that ended up being rather fortunate.

Well Stuart has an excuse of a new job, I just haven't been posting lately, partly because I was traveling for a week, in which I got to enjoy my favorite eating locations in Champaign. But honestly I haven't cooked much new in a while.
Last night---it was a truly glorious day here in NYC, as it is again today---I cooked something for dinner real fast. I'm usually a little more deliberate than I was, so this was more of a hacking what I had in my kitchen than I normally do:

I've made a few of them recently as eggs have a lot going for them, especially if you buy good ones like the various Omega 3 eggs, free range, etc.
I generally cook eggs in olive oil and my favorite omelette filling is a mixture of sauteed portabella mushrooms, garlic, sharp cheese of some sort, and often a chili pepper thrown in for good measure. I usually add smoked paprika or a pinch of herbes de Provence, too.
Any interesting ones you want to share?
