Best lunch in recent memory!
I opened the latest issue of Eating Well (my entire family has airline miles expiring and it has meant an ABUNDANCE of new magazines!) and saw the recipe for Hilary's Heavenly Eggs and went YES.
Step one on my journey to egg awesomeness was these guys:
I am lucky enough to be a member of Foodbuzz’s Tastemaker Program, and as a result got a sweet coupon for a free carton of these. They are INTENSELY DELICIOUS and apparently healthier? Love when those two things occur simultaneously.
Anyway, I dumbed down the recipe a bit and just poached my egg in some jarred tomato basil sauce.
And rather than putting it on silly low-fiber baguette, I OBVIOUSLY instead put it on a slice of my ridiculously delicious brown Irish soda bread.
Oh. Em. Gee. The combination of flavors was un. friggin. believable. The richness of the egg, the savory tomato goodness, the hearty wheaty base of the bread, all hot and combined on my fork… PERFECT! I cannot wait to make this again.
I have waited semi-patiently for this stupid thing to ripen, but it finally did! Papaya, baby! Also courtesy of Hmart (last week’s trip!). Just look at the beautiful star of seeds!
While not quite as good as the fresh papaya in Thailand (obviously) it was still nice to have on this fairly gloomy day. Along with, of course, I restocked, yogurt!
It has kind of occured to me that I’ve been posting small meals lately, thus causing people to think I eat way less than I do. But the truth is, due to currently being home and not working yet, I have been NOSHING LIKE IT’S MY JOB (cause um it is?).
Despite the fact that I am 21, my mom continues to bring me goodies after she goes on business trips. This is a big (BIG) bag of Swedish fish, those awesome gummi blackberries and raspberries, and cinnamon gummi bears. Suffice it to say that when she got here on Sunday, there was more than a pound of candy in that bag (that’s why she got the complimentary creepy rubber duck with bunny ears). Between the diligent efforts of the two of us, there is now a single Swedish fish left (and I only left it cause it’s orange and that’s my least favorite flavor).
48 ounces of Craisins. Costco is ridic. Anyway, I’ve been totally demolishing them. Mmm.
