Recipe – Amazing Skillet Eggs

List of Ingredients

2-3 tbs Olive Oil (or Butter or a mixture of both)

Half of a medium sized onion

Half of a green or red pepper

3-4 medium potatoes, peeled or mostly peeled

Crushed garlic to taste

6 oz frozen corn thawed (or fresh!)

16 oz turkey sausage (in bite sized cubes)

4-6 oz grated cheese

4-6 large eggs

Salt and Pepper to taste

Over medium high heat (7-8 on most stoves), dice the onion and sauté in the oil/butter mixture. Chop the pepper into 1 inch slivers. Add to the skillet. Cut potatoes into ¾ inch pieces and add to the skillet, tossing often to mix and combine. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste. When the potatoes are nearly soft, add the thawed corn and the sausage. Toss to mix and combine.  Turn the heat to low (2-3 on most stoves).  Using the spatula, softly press down the mixture and even it out. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top.  Crack the eggs on top of the cheese, salt and pepper to taste.  Cover the skillet with a lid (glass preferred).  After the eggs have poached on top of the mixture, the scoop each egg out with the mixture below onto a plate to serve.

My wife likes her eggs firm, but I like mine gooey or like an over easy egg.  Simply slide the skillet to one side so that the effect can be achieved in the same skillet.

Optional ideas…..try adding 8 oz of diced mushrooms.  Or a thin layer of salsa before the cheese is added.  Add asparagus or broccoli to the mixture as well.  Or use peas instead of corn. This recipe is a blank canvas and can be tried many different ways.

Two Scoops – vanilla protein powder

2 – tablespoons instant coffee

1 – tablespoon instant sugar free Cappuccino powder

1/2 – tablespoon cocoa powder

12 oz – water (or mix it with Almond Silk)

Enjoy!  Makes about 33 oz total…

Mobile Wash Vehicle

It’s that time of year where we dust off the Mobile Wash Vehicle (actually, we keep it clean all year, too) and get ready to start up our most popular (judging by our reviews and letters to Mr. Cuillo) amenity of the Luxury Experience.

WE ARE OPEN!!!

Remember, the Mobile Wash is scheduled in specific areas on different days of the week, so if your first choice is not available, work with a member of the Client Care Center to find the right time and day.

Remember to tease your neighbors and ask them when the last time THEIR luxury automotive dealer came to THEIR house to wash their luxury vehicle…

Test Drive – 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350

20130315_081431One of the best perks of working at a luxury automotive retailer like the Wichita Luxury Collection is the opportunity to drive amazing vehicles.  The downside is that often, the vehicles are all so amazing and so luxurious, that one could miss out on the pleasure of driving.

Recently, I had the good fortune to take a 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK out for a drive.  I had seen the commercials for this vehicle on TV promoting all the changes from 2012 to 2013.

20130315_081400Being in the automotive industry sometimes causes one to have a jaded impression of automotive commercials as EVERY new vehicle is a million quite a bit better than the previous model.  I mostly write off this kind of sensationalism as pure marketing.20130315_081418

The surprise for me this time though was that the marketing maybe didn’t go far enough in sharing the changes and refinements that Mercedes-Benz put into the 2013 GLK.20130315_081332

Usually, in a vehicles life-cycle, the mid-model “refresh” consists of a few new paint colors, changes to the headlight and tail light configuration, and maybe changing the black trim on the vehicle to chrome.  I was surprised when I first sat down and immediately was impressed with the redesign of the interior, from the dash, to the center console, and even the navigation display screen.

After driving a few miles, I then realized the vehicle has a smoother, softer ride as well.  Still a very spirited, fun vehicle to drive, but quieter and smoother than before.  The handling seemed tighter, too.  I was easily able to park the vehicle in tight spaces and maneuver around the piles of snow we had at the dealership.

Another nice surprise was the updated navigation system.  The “birds-eye” view mode of the navigation screen gave a much nicer, clearer picture of where I was going.  It was also intuitive on how to enter an address, with some of the data input by the GLK in a predictive way similar to how a cell phone tries to predict what you are trying to type, or how Google fills in the rest of the word while typing in a search.20130315_081344

I could go on and on about the GLK, but the best way to learn about it is to DRIVE the GLK, which you can do by clicking HERE.  A copy of this request will come to me and I will make sure a Mercedes-Benz specialist contacts you to confirm your VIP Test Drive.
