Mmm… Food

Thank God it’s not the 80’s

The 1980’s seemed like the heyday for the food myth that eggs are bad for you.  Too much cholesterol.  You shouldn’t eat more than 3 a week.  They would be your doom.  Times have changed and we know that eggs arent’ the the threat they once loomed to be.  Which is perfect for me and my weekend breakfast.  We seem to have eggs every weekend.  Never the same, which is one of the reasons eggs are so fascinating.  They go into so many foods, can be prepared in a myriad of different ways, but they’re always an egg.  This past weekend we had them

On Saturday…


Poached atop a wholewheat mini bagel with melted mozzarella, tomato tapenade and garnished with cilantro. Also a side salad of avocado with lime and cilantro.

We bought this poaching pan at a garage sale for a quarter, it looks kind of like this one.  poachThe problem being we only have the insert and don’t have a pan that the insert fits into thus making it worthless.  Until… I watched April put the mini bagel halves in the holes and put the whole thing under the broiler.  Brilliant!!!  If it worked the way it was supposed to and the the eggs were more perfectly round they might fit atop the bagel better without hanging over, but I like the way these ones kind of drape over the side.  They certainly taste just as good.  And I’ll venture better!!! Because they require a bit more care and love to cook 🙂

And on Sunday…


Poached again, but with a side of sausage links and a green salad.

This was some of the tastiest breakfast sausage I’ve had in a long time.  We randomly stopped at a Winter Farmer’s Market on Saturday held in a church basement down in Roscoe Village where we got the links straight from the source.  Arnolds Farm.  (I’m working up the entry about all the other great stuff we found at the market.  Great spontaneous stop shopping trip!!)  With a side green salad with blue berries and a fig vinaigrette.  And a piece of toast!!  HEAVEN!!
