Mondays are meant for looking through your weekend photos and wishing you could rewind back to two days ago, or fast forward yourself to Friday. And since I’m no Doc Brown, here’s to looking back 😉
The “Picture Perfect” Yolk. Obviously not talking about the unruly egg on the right. The best way to achieve a bright yellow yolk, with a perfectly cooked egg white? Pour egg white in a lightly oiled pan first over medium heat, leaving yolk whole in the shell. Wait until the white of egg is 1/2 way cooked and then add your yolk on top. Let the egg sizzle for a couple more minutes and there you’ve got yourself a beauty. I paired the eggs with some oven roasted tomatoes and a side of toast topped with fresh basil & red pepper flakes.
I also decided to snap a couple pictures of my lunch. Cucumber, Avocado, & aqua greens make for a super easy vegetable roll. I was trying to create a “St Patricks” themed lunch by adding green food dye to the sushi rice however it became more of an eyesore and totally weirded me out when I was trying to eat the rolls. Needless to say, I’ll never dye my rice again. Womp womp. Recipe fail.
To make up for my lunch failure, I needed a pizza cleanse with some fermented grapes. My life remedy.
Isn’t she just a beauty???? Definitely not baked by yours truly. Picked up this loaf of love at Pizzeoli’s in St. Louis. So if you’re in the St. Louis area and are wanting some fresh gluten, call up Scott and place an order. The best part aside from the taste? It’s only six dollars……. need I say more.
With all the bread I had leftover (since it is just me, myself & I…. and my son is literally only 20 pounds) I decided to whip up some SUPER easy meatball burger sandwiches using the leftover roasted tomatoes from breakfast, some tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella & a little burrata. What my sandwich dreams are made of.
