Lenten Breakfast Recipe *Migas*

I don't know about you but on Friday mornings, during the Lenten season, I usually have a hard time deciding what to make! On a regular morning Eliada loves to ask for either pancakes or ham and eggs. Well, pancakes okay, but I CAN'T EAT ANYMORE PANCAKES! And ham? It's too expensive, plus, no meat during Lent. So, the next thing I turn to is MIGAS!

What the heck are Migas? Well, it is a traditional Spanish dish that was prepared to use leftover bread and to make the eggs last a bit longer. So it was more of a mushy dish and often served with pork as well. But then we now have the Tex-Mex version, which takes away the "meat" during lent and uses strips of tortillas in place of the bread and most Hispanics add onion, tomato in a salsa and ofcourse scrambeled with eggs. And those are the Migas I know.

So, this morning, I put these clips together of me making them. Hope you enjoy and let me know if you whip them up tomorrow morning, it's Friday! Be sure to subscribe to my channel for more videos.


2 Eggs
2 Corn Tortillas
2 Tbls Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Optional mix-ins: tomato, onions, bell pepper, etc
Optional toppings: cheese or salsa

  1. Heat pan to a mid-high heat and add oil
  2. Cut/slice tortillas and add to pan when hot
  3. Scramble eggs and season
  4. Stir/flip tortillas (add in any mix-ins if desiered)
  5. When at desiered cripy-ness (or leave soft) add scrambed eggs
  6. Mix and serve!
  7. Add any toppings and enjoy!

Like I said, there are so many various of this recipe. I totally love The Pioneer Woman's version, but I would probably never eat them like this, it looks delicious! I googled Migas and there are some other pics that came up! Which version would you try?

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
