I made the most awesome brinner (breakfast for dinner!) last night before the haunted forest!

Shrimp and Spinach Omelet




(serves 1)

  • 2 eggs
  • 8 frozen shrimp (already peeled, deveined, tail-off)
  • olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic, diced
  • huge handful spinach
  • 1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 C diced tomatoes
  • salt & pepper to taste


You’ll need two pans – a smaller one for the omelet, and one for the shrimp/spinach/etc.

PAN #1: Add your diced garlic and a drizzle of olive oil into the larger pan and set it to medium heat. Once it’s hot, toss in the frozen shrimp.


After a couple minutes, toss in a HUGE handful of fresh spinach.


Mix it around until the spinach and shrimp are both cooked.


Add in the parmesan cheese and some diced tomatoes, and leave the pan on low heat to keep it warm while you cook the eggs.


PAN #2: First, whisk two eggs and salt and pepper to taste, and pour them into a nonstick (or PAM sprayed) pan on medium high heat.

To make an awesome omelet, once the bottom layer is mostly cooked, start lightly lifting up the edges of the egg, tilting the pan so that the uncooked liquid on top will end up traveling underneath the part you lifted up. Do this around the whole circle until all the egg is cooked.



Now all you need to do is put the open omelet on a plate, plop the shrimp/spinach/tomato mixture on top, and fold over the egg!

Look how pretty it is 🙂 I always won the “best omelet maker” award in the family, hehe. It’s usually my job on Christmas morning after we open presents!


I had another busy day today! I spent the morning catching up on Chemistry homework (ugh it’s getting harder!!) and finishing up some editing work. I took a lovely walk in the sunshine late morning which was nice. 🙂 Then it was off to class and then to the office for the rest of the afternoon! I’m glad to not have any plans tonight so I can try to keep catching up on homework and life!

In other news – the haunted forest last night was AWESOME! Ashley and I (everyone else bailed, but we were like whatever we’re still going!) went to Markoff’s Haunted Forest in Maryland and trust me, if you are in the DC area, it is SO worth the drive.


It’s literally in the middle of NOWHERE. They have an awesome area with food, bonfires, haunted buses, a haunted hayride, and all sorts of other entertainment while you wait! So toasty 🙂


They also had all sorts of fun Halloween colored lights up. I tried to get a picture but it came out crazy – check this out!


Here we are before going in – eeeeeeek!


We were basically shrieking the entire time, haha. Such girls! I love haunted forests because you aren’t all smushed up on a thousand other people like in a haunted house. For most of it we were alone on the trail! Sooooo creepy. They had some awesome costumes!

Anyway, back to work! Have a great evening friends 🙂

p.s. Do you like my new format?? I became a Foodbuzz Featured Publisher, so I shifted up my layout to fit the banner. Yay!

  1. hmmm… someone awesome must have inspired such a great brinner idea recently! 😛 heehee. LOVE IT!

  2. Congrats on joining with foodbuzz! That’s why I switched to this banner and it works together well I think

  3. That looks AMAZING! Ymmies!

  4. I can’t eat shrimp but I could have the rest of that and it looks soooo good! I just found your blog and it’s great!

    You’re brave to go in a haunted forest, I can’t even do the haunded house type thing!

  5. Shrimp + spinach omelet? Yes please. Also, I adore haunted trails. You girls were so brave to go alone, I have to have a large man to hang onto when I go to those things!

  6. I didn’t realize you lived in the MD/DC area. I’ve been looking for fun Halloween things to do since I live in MD! I can’t wait to check this out. And your omelet looks awesome!

  7. Now that’s a fine-looking omelet Anne. I’m going to attempt it at some point this week and hopefully it’ll turn out as pretty as yours. 😉
