No Milk? Make a Microwaved Bacon Omelet!

I have forgotten to get milk for the past three days, which means that I have been getting inventive with breakfasts because I can't eat cereal. A couple years ago my dad gave me a couple egg-cooking plastic containers for use in the microwave. I have used them a several times, but never before in a blog post, sooo...
Step 1: Toss some precooked bacon and a couple eggs into the cooker. No need for any grease or butter, thanks to the bacon.
Step 2: Break up the egg yolks with a fork, otherwise they explode. I found this out the first time I did this and they exploded violently enough to blow open the cooker container and leave egg bits all over the microwave.
Step 3: Add some cheese and pepper to taste, then microwave 1m 20s...
And here you have it - a tasty omelet-like thing with minimal cleanup and no milk required!
Thanks to the quick and easy nature of this breakfast, I had plenty of time left over to write this post! Now I just have to see about how I can help my wife get unsick. That's right - in our almost three years of marriage she has NEVER been sick, until now. Even through the less-than-sanitary conditions of the Bloody Wall Hotel, her immune system stayed strong. I think it's all the 2-hour nights of sleep she has been getting to manage working and being a full-time nursing student, but that is just me... Eesh. Get better soon, Nicole!

Hope your wife gets better, eh. And I love that food preparation. Minimalistic and practical. :)

Ha ha ha, thanks very much! I actually just got done eating a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich… Also, the wife is doing much better - currently in the living room studying for an exam, no more signs of sickness!
