Cream Cheese Scramble Toasts

cream cheese scrambled egg toasts

When I laid out this plate on the table and proceeded to try and take pictures of it, I was confronted with a strange issue: my digital camera was insisting upon being in “Auto mode,” whatever that means, and warning me that it would automatically choose what ISO to use and focus automatically. Basically, I had no choice in the matter. I tried to change the setting, but the familiar list of myriad settings had been replaced by a paltry enumeration of the few options available in Auto mode. There was no escaping it – not even by turning the camera off and on. So before my eggs got cold, I just resigned myself to snapping some pics in Auto. Luckily they didn’t turn out too horrific.

Later, I tried tinkering around with the camera – after looking at the settings so many times I was ready to throw the thing against a wall, I aimlessly flipped a switch clearly positioned near the shutter. I didn’t expect anything miraculous to happen – certainly not the notification on the digital screen that it was now in “Picture mode: set various camera functions.” When had I switched it to Auto mode, and why? Some of life’s mysteries will never be elucidated to us: I will never understand half the things that camera does, or what its motives are. I’ve come to accept my permanent ignorance in such great workings of entities more complex than us humans.

However, one mystery I have been able to solve is how to put together a yummy, healthy vegetarian breakfast on a busy morning. Whole wheat toast topped with savory spreading cheese, hot scrambled eggs, and veggies/fruit (tomatoes are fruits) is a varied, delicious dish that can be thrown together in 10-15 minutes. Complete with whole grains, bone-building calcium, nourishing protein, filling fiber and vibrant vitamins A, C, and iron, this flavorful meal is one you can feel good about enjoying any day of the week! Feel free to fancify it by changing up the veggies and adding spices – I just tossed this together with what I had lying around.
