Breakfast - Cheesy Eggs, Chicken Sausage, Grapefruit, and Bagels

Does cottage cheese melt? We have part of a carton of cottage cheese in the refrigerator. How would it work to stir a couple spoons full of it into our breakfast scrambled eggs?

Well, some experiments work better than others. This was nothing to brag about and nothing to repeat. It tasted all right, I guess. The consistency was wet. I scrambled the eggs first, then added the cottage cheese. So, I know the eggs were cooked. The curds and whey separated. The curds only partially melted. The whey just sort of sat there, somewhat evaporating. It was okay, at best. It's not something I intend to do again.

Breakfast: Cheesy scrambled eggs made with cottage cheese, chicken sausage patties, cinnamon and raisin bagels, grapefruit sections, milk, and coffee.

Lunch: Beef chow mein, crunchy chow mein noodles, toast, dried apricots, candied ginger, and milk.

My plan to use up Easter dinner leftovers was pushed aside. It was one of those days when we just needed something quick and easy to fix. Canned chow mein fit the bill.

Snacks: Dates, turkey jerky, and orange juice.
