May I recommend Eggs Benedict, California style? Two slices of tomato, three slices of avocado, one poached egg, two strips of bacon, and a dab of Hollandaise.
Saturday morning breakfast was everything I'd dreamed it would be. Next time, I'm also going to dream about some hash browns.
I realize, whenever I look through our pictures, that we frequently photograph our food. Sometimes it seems weird, but mostly it seems regular. I mean, we do eat three times every single day. That's a lot of food. And most of it is just so pretty- all those bright colors and different textures.
Sometimes, I worry that to an outsider, it could appear that we eat too much. So I thought it could be helpful, for scale purposes, to share this picture. We went to Bruster's for ice cream. We got a "split single"- half a scoop of coconut sherbet, half a scoop of strawberry sherbet. That's right- we shared the half scoops. Secretly, in my heart, I wanted more, but once we had eaten it, it seemed like just the right amount.
Could portion control be an Olympic sport? I think we'd have a good chance at gold.
We had this salad one night for dinner last week and then I recreated it for lunch every single day after that because I couldn't get it off my mind. Spinach + grilled ginger lime chicken + candied pecans + berries + Havarti = the best salad I've ever put in my mouth. I think it even beat the steak, and that's saying a lot.
We had a great weekend and accomplished a lot, but all I have to show you is the food.
Today I'm working on more fabric design and calculating how much gray wool felt I will need to make 100 bag handles. Man, that sounds like a ton of handles. Hopefully some sewing elves will come in the night and finish them. Otherwise, it's all me. I have got to teach Steve to sew.
