So I was at the Farmers' Market.
As usual I bought a lot of pretty if I like to eat vegetables. I went a little color beets, yellow beets and a huge bunch of multi-colored chard. Even the farmer remarked on my rainbow mania.
I cooked the beets when I got home. I chopped 'em, seasoned 'em (s&p) drizzled 'em (olive oil) and tossed 'em. Pop 'em in the toaster oven at about 400 for what?... 15 minutes? Super easy. Super good.
 Serve 'em:
Cool: layered over vinaigrette-dressed spinach.
Hot: alongside just about anything.
And tomorrow we'll talk about the chard.

Driving Towards The Sun

Yesterday I was driving. To the city. Again. At least it was a pretty day. And no traffic. I had brunch and then hung out with the family. Okay so I can't complain. 
It was night by the time I drove home. But this time of year, you know, the sun sets pretty late. I still had the top down and shot these pics holding my i-Phone above the windshield. No I wasn't driving. Okay I was driving very slowly. That's why the shot above is -  how shall I say - crazy blurry.
But then I pulled over. In the parking lot. I swear. See, above? Nice, huh?

This morning I had a muffin. And coffee. It was a Morning Sunrise muffin but it didn't taste like the Morning Sunrise I used to buy at Whole Foods. And it was old. So I sliced up some nice fresh Italian bread from Panzanella's. And toasted it. And fried up a couple of eggs. I sunnysided up them eggs. Wicked.
I let the butter get really hot (yeah, there was butter).

I let the eggs fry until the edges started getting crisp 'cause I love that - it adds so much flavor. Then I turned the heat down and put a loose cover over the pan, which firmed up those gross blobby white parts. Then, guess what? I had another cup of coffee. Pretty darn good Saturday morning.
