Breakfast with Fiesta

Hi, Everyone!  

I was making my breakfast as usual this morning and I had to hunt for my new favorite pan!  I mean, I have 2 now, so am I going to have to have 1 more?  With just 2 of us, the dishwasher is never full before I need everything in it again!  I know, I could handwash, but . . . 

My breakfast is super simple every morning, so I like having super simple things to fix it with.  And this new pan is just exactly perfect for my purpose - about 5 minutes from my first yawn in the kitchen to everything on the plate, the first cup of a fresh brewed pot of coffee in the same 5 minutes, my favorite everyday dishes (Fiesta) and a beautiful napkin (it's just so cheery), and only 1 pan to put in the sink!  5 minutes and I'm heading to my library (a very cushy spot) with my cheery plate full, a delicious cup of coffee and my iPad.  Perfect!

When everything's over, I head back to the kitchen and there's only ONE pan in the sink to greet me.  Prior to this I have used large & small skillets for my eggs, until my Mom found a little, bitty 1-egg pan at the grocery store.  But it was really Too Small.  I like 2 eggs for breakfast and this one was definitely 1-egg!  So I continued to keep an eye out . . . . . and sure enough, I was looking at a Fiesta dinnerware display and there it was . . . Fiesta cookware - and there was this (very pretty) little skillet about twice as deep as the 1-egg one!  I bought two!  Here it is, in case you need one, too . . . .

 I think their logo is fabulous!  So very 30's, so very stylish!  So far, this comes in 4 of their colors to match their dinnerware.  For the handle, you need one of their beautiful and functional mitts.  In keeping with my desire for minimal mess, I just use the napkin I have for my meal!

Only 2 eggs here, but could hold 3!

 

You can see that it's a 2-egger, and I even added some butter & diced onion before the eggs for a little extra flavor.  This little pan is not only perfect in size, but it's ceramic so absoutely nothing sticks to it.  No scrubbing and no coating to come off in little bits as you use it! 

 

 

 

I think there will be other uses for it too, that I'll discover in time.  Melting butter in it will be really handy!

Now I'll admit it's a challenge to turn the eggs over.  I only have 1 small spatula and it's not small enough  . . .  Hmmm . . .  guess I'll have to keep my eye out for just the right spatula . . . 

Yours,

Pat
