Again, it seems as if always when I’m down and out poached eggs are what I’m craving! I’ve been sleeping on and off on the couch all morning…then finally I woke up, took a shower, put on some really soft, old jeans and made an egg. I wanted to make two eggs with two pieces of yummy bread, but I wasn’t sure if my tummy could handle it. So, I used my egg poacher to make one egg and put it on a piece of artisan bread that I pulled out of the freezer. I let the bread completely soak up the good yolk before eating it so it would be softer and easier on my throat. I had a juicy ripe pear as well (trick to this is to always keep your fruit on the kitchen counter: NOT in the fridge!). It actually was the perfect amount of food for me right now, but I am leaving the egg poacher out because I might want another one for a snack later if I get hungry. They are so good! I ended up eating the rest of my oatmeal later this morning as well….I think I just felt sick from the pain medicine and even though I didn’t want to eat, I knew that that was what was best for my body. I’m still upset about missing making scones, chocolate-chip muffins and coffee cake at school today…hopefully my chef instructor doesn’t just think I am a slacker and didn’t want to come on the second day of class! I have a lot of reading to do this afternoon in my baking textbook so I can get caught up.
Okay…back to the couch. Enjoy your day!
