Good Saturday afternoon! I hope you're having a good weekend. It is cold and wet here in Austin. I was supposed to work at school for a public class today but it was cancelled due to the weather. You know how it is in the South….there is a threat of ice and everything closes just in case. I am sure that is good but I was looking forward to the school event and getting 5 of my required 60 hours of assisting work out of the way! Instead I am home and cooking. I made some English muffins this morning. I'm not going to post the recipe since I know you all don't have a sourdough starter, but here is the link if you want to see it.
I haven't had much bread lately so these were delicious. All whole wheat and very nicely sour. I also decided to make a nice savory breakfast. Greens cooked with onions and some leftover baked sweet potato. Served with a big fried egg. This is so easy that I'm not going to give you a real recipe but just tell you how to do it. Heat some olive oil in a big skillet. Add thinly sliced onion, a minced garlic clove, and a sprinkle of salt. Saute until starting to brown and tender. While cooking, chop up leftover baked sweet potato or regular potatoes. Add to the pan and heat over medium heat until warm throughout and starting to brown a bit. While cooking finely slice some greens. I used three huge collard leaves but you can use anything, about two big handfuls. When the potatoes are hot, add the greens and some more salt. Stir around for a few minutes until lightly cooked. Move everything to the side of the pan. Add a little olive oil to the pan, and use the space to fry an egg or two. Pile it all on a plate and eat! It is delicious. If you are baking potatoes just bake one or two extra and this makes a nice quick breakfast, lunch or dinner. You could add other leftover vegetables, cubes of cheese, leftover meat (if you eat it).
I got lucky today and got a double yolk egg! Always makes me happy. I have been buying my eggs at a food coop that has jumbo eggs from Amish farms in Iowa. There is always at least one double yolker in a dozen. In one carton I had 4! Amazing! So that's your recipe for today. I'll leave you with a few random photos that were on my phone…two photos of our food at school...
How I started my new year. I loved my calendar for January 1….
And this was my view...
And of course here is a picture of the big boy, Beau. Waiting for Tom so we could go to the park.
And here is the big park we go to. It is a huge field nearby that is always full of dogs, babies, frisbee players, volleyball players, picnicers…you name it. I love it!
Yes, Beau is wet He finds a big puddle to wallow in wherever he goes! So that is it for today. Have a great weekend.
