Sometimes, after a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is cook.
I know this because I had the same feeling last night. You're tired, maybe you're a tad cranky, and would rather not do much of anything (other than bourbon).
Well, as we all know, that is seldom a good excuse to go hungry - or eat a bag of potato chips - in lieu of creating something delicious, and a little less harsh on your arteries, for dinner.
This is where I come in.
Hi! (A very blurry me, at that!)
Back to the point.
Where was I? Oh yes, cooking dinner after a rotten work day when all you'd like to do is eat a bag of potato chips and crawl into a glass with some bourbon. Ah, yes. I know those days all too well.
Well, you see, because of dinners like this one, your excuses as to why you're not cooking dinner begin to fade away. It's just too easy. And clean up? Pfft. A breeze.
Dinner? Well, let's just say.... It's in the bag.
Hello? Is this mic on?
So. Who are you kidding? Put the bag of fried spuds DOWN.
Hold onto the drink, if you must, but make this dinner!
Freezer Bag Omelette

1 freezer bag
2 to 3 large eggs, lightly whisked
1 cup arugula, rinsed
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup onions, diced
1/4 cup shredded cheese, doesn't matter what kind- it's your choice!
1/2 cup breakfast meat (I used Smart Sausage), cooked and drained
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
2. In a large bowl, combine all of the above ingredients. Pour into a freezer bag and remove all air and seal it.

4. Remove omelette from freezer bag! (throw away the bag!) Voila! Dinner is served!
