An omelette Pizza for breakfast

What do you do when you wake up too early with a lot of time ahead of you ages before time to make breakfast for your hubby?
What if you crave pizza at this early time of the morning?
You make pizza for breakfast of course.
That's what I did.
I made a breakfast pizza for breakfast.
I made an omelette pizza.:-)

An omelette pizza

  • 3 eggs
  • half a small onion
  • 1 chili pepper
  • pizza sauce
  • chili sauce
  • 2 tomatoes
  • Cheese of your choice.(I had cheddar in my fridge,so you can guess what i used.)
for the dough:
  • 250 gm(approx. 2 1/2 cups)All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp instant yeast(dry yeast is OK too,but you should dissolve it in lukewarm water before adding.I've had some trouble with it,so i always prefer instant yeast)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter/margarine
  • a pinch of salt(you can omit this too)
  • Lukewarm water
how to:
  • Preheat oven to 190`C.
  • Make the crust.Here is how to.
  • Next,chop finely the chili and the onion.Beat eggs and mix the chopped onions and chili.
  • Make an omelette.
  • cut the omelette into little squares.Set aside.
  • Slice the tomatoes.
  • roll out crust.Spread sauces,sprinkle the pieces of chopped omelette.
  • place tomatoes all over.Well,you know.
  • Grate cheese onto the top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.Well actually till cheese melts should be OK with the thin crust.I think.I made it in my microwave,and I cooked it om high for seven minutes.
  • Tadaaa!Your breakfast pizza is ready.
We had breakfast and have one whole pizza left yet.Anyone care for pizza?

PS/This was supposed to be posted this morning.But blogger needed all morning and afternoon to upload to images!!!

Being awake since the crack of dawn,I also managed to do some hexing.
As my mom was too busy being pregnant for the last nine months,the last three of which was spent by me in making of the quilt,she had not seen it.So yesterday,I took with me home the block that i was working on,as my tendency to miss working on my quilt the hours i spend at home with mom,and also wanting to show it to her at last.Previously i had showed pictures of it.Mom was happy with what i was doing,and hubby did me the favor of how it was done.(I explained the last four months telling him,and and everyone that i know all my quilting updates.And now,hubby is doing the honors for for me.saves me so much energy.And the way he explains it,you would think that he is an expert,LOL.He is that good at it now.I love you sweetheart!)

Now i have a whole new problem.Well actually not so new,as i knew it would become a problem.I have far too many orange and pink flowers.You see,i cannot place them far apart enough for it to not over power all the other colours.So i am thinking like maybe i need to make more flower blocks,and NOT give into my strong urges to make any pink blocks.
Well,that's it for now.

spicy barbecue tuna

Here's what i conjured up for lunch.

Spicy barbecue tuna

  • 2 cups chopped tuna
  • 1 big onion diced
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 tomatoes cut into wedges
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp dark soya bean sauce
  • a few curry leaves(i used dried,fresh would always be better of course)
  • 3 tbsp heaped red chili pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp heaped chili powder
  • 1 heaped tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp ajinomoto(MSG)
  • sunflower oil(enough for sauteing the onions.)
  • Salt to taste
How to:
  • Heat oil and saute onion in it till semi translucent.
  • Add garlic and saute till soft,then add ginger.
  • Add chili flakes,chili powder and tomato paste.cook on low heat continuously stirring.add more oil if it tends to get dry.
  • Add tuna.Mix in well with the spices.
  • Add salt and Ajinomoto(MSG).
  • Blend in barbecue sauce and soya sauce.
  • Put in the tomato wedges and cook just until tender.Mix well.
  • Turn off heat.
  • Serve with rice or noodles.

I haven't tried yet,but i guess you can use chicken or beef instead of tuna too.

I served with it a somewhat Japanese style fruit salad.
  • 1/2 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1/2 cup chopped orange
  • 1/2 cup chopped apples
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp juice of a lemon
How to:
  • Sprinkle lemon juice over the apples in a bowl,mix to coat well.
  • Add all other fruits,and mayonnaise and mix to coat.
  • chill until ready to serve.

you should try this sometime.
My hubby loved this.
I did too.:-)

wanna see my sewing stuff?

ya.I thought so.I knew you would love to.Thank you.:-)

One of my boxes to organize my ever so growing fabric stash.Its a fabric covered box i taped together using cardboard.I made a big pocket outside and three small ones in the inside.I always need more room to store stuff!
fabric,some ribbon,lace,and a rolled up cord.

This little sweet is my thread basket.It's getting too small for all my threads.They keep increasing with my fabric stash too.I made it with this tutorial from my little mochi.She has various other sweet projects too!
Go check it out,you'll love it if you haven't already seen it and fallen in love with it.

Two pairs of tailoring shears,and one pair of pinking shears that i love so much.

pens,glue,tissue.hair clips and hair bands..and a nail cutter.well,things aren't where they are supposed to be,but at least they are looking tidy.lol.

My round pincushion.

Another pincushion i made..I think you can guess where this one came from!

My hexagon pincushion.Isn't it a sweet thing?If you read my ramblings,I am sure you know that i have something going on about hexagons.One side is yellow,The other is red,that's the one shown.It was paper pieced.
this here is my little hexagon basket.I made it too from this tutorial.I run all around the house and this little box always tags along.It is stuffed with hexagon cuts for my quilt.I know,its very scrambled,but believe me i organize it.It just gets jumbled entirely on its own.Not one bit my fault.lol. The first pin cushion i ever made.Also my first patchwork one.
This one is my favourite.Isn't it obvious..It's pink!;-)Its the one that runs along with my sewing basket all the time. And here is my progress on the quilt since i posted last..um..was it Tuesday? Nine flower blocks joined and the tenth started. My hands hurt from all the sewing.I didn't want to stop.too eager to see how it looks as it keeps growing!my left wrist kept hurting and hurting from holding it for so long in one position,..i guess..And the fingers by which i hold the needle from my right hand,the tips,hurt so much that i cant hold the needle.so i assumed that it was time to take a break!:-)But hopefully,I will resume as soon as i can hold the needle!
I definitely am obsessed!
A close up. nine blocks and growing.

I am very happy about how its turning out.
What do you think?

Love from,

i finally am back working on my hexy garden.It has been a pretty looong break.But finally I am up and running again.Boy,it feels good.I didnt even realise how much i missed working on it every single minute that i had.
I have started joining the flowers together.It is amazing seeing it grow slowly.Ahhh,pure bliss.;-)
This is how much i have got done so far.Not much to the eye,but it takes two times more time to join two flowers together than to actually make two flowers.(For me anyway.)Not to mention how not very easy it is to me yet handling the growing blocks.But it is such a beautiful feeling seeing it grow piece by piece.Every little obstacle i stumble upon along the way is worth the while.Totally.:-)

Two or three nights back i was at mom's,sleepy and i was waiting for hubby to come back home with.That was till i found a full of paint tubes waiting for me to do something about it.Anything.SO i had to paint something,i had no choice.And when i couldnt find any decent paper to play with my paints,I tore off a piece of cardboard from a box that was going to the garbage after a sorry life..I gave it some life.At least to a torn out piece of it.lol.

I didnt really finished it..But i have a feeling that this is how its going to stay.
I am back to working on my slowly growing garden.see ya!

A quick microwave dessert

I have been dreaming of food and doing nothing else for the past few days.Again.My sweet tooth has been going crazy lately and it was only a matter of time before i surrender to it completely.Which is why i made this sweet pudding.And the best thing was that it was super easy and with the microwave,it was super fast!


  • 1 can sweeeeet condensed milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

How to:

  • Beat eggs.
  • Add the can of condensed milk.And mix.
  • Add vanilla.Beat well.
  • Pour into a microwave proof glass pan.Round pans work best in microwaves because the corners tend to over cook.)
  • Microwave it for 5 minutes.Check if its done.A toothpick inserted into the middle should come out clean.If not give it some standing time.If not done still,microwave it a minute more.
  • Cool before serving.I love it chilled!
  • Enjoy!

Its a very simple dessert..But it is always a winner

You can caramalize some suger in the pan you are going to use for the pudding before pouring pudding mixture into it.bake it just as above,and Viola,Its caramel pudding!

Lotsa love,

My brother has been named..

my Little brother has been named yesterday.The newest member of our family is Noor Al Salam(pronounced Noorussalaam.)
The proper rituals according to our religion was performed and it was a hectic day.We live from our parents house by a distance of um..like 20 minutes.Which is pretty long and draggy when it is a rainy day.Taxi's are not available ever here at the slightest sign of heavy clouds,let alone rain.It was very rainy and cold all day long.Hubby's motor bike caught flu and decided to stay put,so we had to walk all the way.On this very exact day which was rainy,and we were on a tight schedule.We did some delivering of bits of the happy occasion.We had to take my daddy's old scooter for that.We cycled all over Mal'e in the cold evening,delivering the packages to various relatives and friends who lived scatterd.
And little Noor was very quite yesterday.I think it was because of the weather.It is normally hot and i guess he loves it when it gets cold.
Again no sewing to show you.Managed to finish 2 skirts of the simplest pattern yesterday morning.
When i came back home later in the evening,i was exhausted and starving.We had not done grocery shopping for a while and there wasnt much to eat.There is this saying about great things being invented out of nessecity.Or something.Well,i kinda realised that last night.there were so few ingredients available to me at home.So i mixed and matched everything that i had and it turned out to delicious.(And maybe i was toooo hungry to taste well..just maybe.)
So i thought i would tell you how i whipped out this piece of work,the simple dinner that i made out of utter nessecity.;-)

The dish i havent had time to name yet.

Wat I used(Actually what i had in my fridge):

  • two eggs

  • 1/2 cup chopped salami

  • half a carrot,sliced

  • 1 small onion.diced

  • butter,or vegetable oil will do too

What i did:

  • saute the onions ans salami in some oil,till salami is well browned.Take care not to brown the onions too much.

  • Add the carrots ant saute in it till it becomes slightly soft and just a little bit brown.

  • Beat eggs and pour into pan.Scramble the eggs with the rest of the ingredients.

  • You can add herbs,and or chilli of you like it hot.

  • Enjoy!

I loved this recipe.Try it sometime.It would make a great breakfast.And if you ever do,let me know how it turned out!:-)
