Eggs!  Eggs have become one of my new best friends since I started eating for two.  While frozen chicken breasts and pork chops languish undisturbed in my freezer for months, I’m getting my protein fill from breakfast foods.  And seeing as how I’ve been in love with Mexican food my whole life and now even more than EVER, Mexican eggs sounded like a scrumptious dinner treat.     They were.  They are.  We ate it.  It’s gone.  It was delicious.   And.  I poached my very...
