First, I baked some eggs. There's some debate about whether or not this is a better method that boiling them, and honestly I don't know don't care. It worked like a boss and it's how I'm gonna make hard boiled (uh, baked?) eggs henceforth.
Truth is, I don't know how to boil eggs. I have to google it every time and I always fuck it up because I'm a special kind of amazing. Baking them worked well - 325 degrees and you can forget about them until your timer goes off 30 minutes later, then put them in ice water when they're done. They peel easily and were everything I could hope for in an egg. Better than eggceptable, they were eggstraordinary.
Something else I don't know how to do: cook mushrooms. I had to ask a friend for my second eggsperiment. (Also, are you supposed to put silverware in the dishwasher facing up or down? Who even knows.)
Spinach and Mushroom Quiche Cups

I modified her recipe slightly by omitting the heavy cream and adding 2 more eggs. These are wonderful and next time I'll add onions. (Check out those sauteed shrooms. Nailed it.) I may have had 2 of these and an oatmeal cup for dinner last night.
Oatmeal cups, you say?
I followed the original recipe pretty exactly, and put chocolate chips on half and left half plain. What's a few morsels between friends?
I made these for Mylo's breakfast this week, but I know he's not gonna like them. They're not sweet at all, but it's not surprising since they're sugar free. I like them, and they will definitely make your house smell amazing while they're baking. I like the chocolatey ones better, duh.
My fourth pin-win was a ranch dressing substitute.
Half of a big container of Greek yogurt and a packet of ranch dressing mix, BOOM done. It's yumzors and I'm taking it in my lunch this week with carrots. REAL TALK: This is 22 calories per 2 tablespoons. Do you know how many calories traditional ranch dressing has per 2 tablespoons? ONE HUNDRED FORTY. Is it even a question? Plus, there's a fuckton of protein in Greek yogurt.
Bonus, I'm gonna use the rest of the greek yogurt and some leftover oats to make refrigerator oatmeal later this week, because fuck yeah planning ahead and using ingredients I already have.
That's four Pinterest wins, but I made five Pinterest things. Let's talk about the fifth one.
Raspberries with chocolate chips.
Listen, I love raspberries and I love chocolate, but these were only okay. If I need a chocolate fix, I'm just gonna eat some chocolate. There's no point in ruining perfectly delicious raspberries.
Once I finished all of the things, I sat my Nerky ass down and watched Star Trek Into Darkness, because I deserved it after being so domestic. Ladies, I'm talking to you right now (because I know tons of guys were interested in this post), Star Trek isn't just for nerds. Half of the reason I'm as nerky as I am is because of the guys in nerky movies.
Yep, count me in.
