Dear Beau: thank you for reminding me that no matter how cute the ceramic I can’t believe it’s not Buddha butter holder is, it isn’t practical because we don’t have a kitchen table to put it on. Even if it is only $19.99. Dear Upcoming Mini-Vaca: you will consist of cleaning, organizing, purging, donating and more cleaning. Maybe a little painting; I couldn’t be happier. Dear Sage: thank you for giving me next Monday-Wednesday off (paid). I now have a much-needed five-day “weekend” to get myself back on track. Cluttered apartment = cluttered mind.
Blurg! It has been a while since I last posted. All I have to say is I work in the Finance Department and our fiscal year-end is in three days and I’d only like to be at work for the next two. It’s that busy.
But I have been cooking more than usual. The beau and I are seriously trying to cut back from eating out each day (yes, it has come to at least once a day) to not only save our waistlines, but our wallets. A challenge may be among us…
For now, I’ll share two recipes with y’all that I found… on Pinterest, of course! I’ll link to the original posting for the recipe for two reasons:
- I basically followed them exactly as written
- I don’t want to type all that up.
I’ll also note that they aren’t my best photographs… we were hungry! Enjoy!
My review: The best breakfy! And super easy to make. I only had yellow onions to carmelize but to add more flavor, I did so in coconut oil- such a great decision. Instead of spinach, I used fresh chard from the CSA. And I’m not a fan of poached eggs (and I haven’t mastered making them yet), so over-easy it was. I seriously could eat this each and every morning, with a few more sweet potato slices, maybe. Also, beau approved.
My review: Eh. I don’t know if I’d repeat this- good, kind of bland and I felt heavy with no protein and a bunch of cheese and whipping cream. Instead of canned tomatoes I roasted some cherry tomatoes in the oven for about 20 minutes with EVOO and salt&pepper. I also used some sugar snap peas from the CSA (along with frozen) and topped the dish with fresh chives from my momma’s garden. Paired with my favorite Coho Red, it went down pretty easily with more for leftovers the following day. Beau ate it, didn’t seem too impressed. I don’t blame him.
Do you try any of the recipes you find on Pinterest? Or do you just pin them and move on?
