This is another DIY night so feel free to wing it and do whatever you would like with eggs tonight...some of our favorites are below:
This is a yummy vegetarian dish and only takes about 30-35 minutes from start to finish, so great for a week night
This is a DIY night so feel free to wing it and do whatever you would like with fish (we like Tilapia, Halibut and Red Snapper), grain and a veggie. I have this delicious Wasabi-Sake Mustard from We Olive that I am going to use as a bit of a marinade with some salt and pepper and then just pan fry it and serve it along with whole wheat cous cous and broccoli steamed with a bit of ginger and sesame oil. Nice and easy...enjoy!
I LOVE eggs...so much so that I often say if I was stuck on a desert island for the rest of my life with only one food to eat eggs would be my immediate choice.

A friend of mine shared this recipe with me that she found a while ago on smittenkitchen.com (which is a fab site that I aspire to be even 50% as great as some day!) and swears she makes it at least once a month now, so I’m looking forward to adding it to my recipe repertoire!

Orecchiette is an ear shaped pasta that stays nice and firm when cooked so that it has a nice bite to it. Try this one out, you'll love it...I promise!

Dessert was homemade chocolate dipped strawberries.
However, if your curious here is my general approach for this dinner when I make it...I grew up eating this so it has evolved from my mother’s recipe over the years:
