Begin with cutting open the avocado and mashing the avocado…

Sunny Side Up Morning

Eggs are one of the most universal items to use in any meal. I use them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sometimes I use them in 2 or more meals a day.  The Price is Right It is so easy to make an egg, and they come at a good price.
