So, as you might expect, I ate some bacon today. I took the block of it to my local bodega and they sliced it up for me, so nice and saved me SO much trouble. I’m going to freeze most of it, I swear! 😀
Anyhow, today was good for a few things. First of all, I suddenly was able to make a perfect poached egg. I’m pretty good in the kitchen but I’ve always struggled with the poached egg. And yet somehow, today, I woke up able to do it.
I give you Exhibit A. Breakfast. Simple, elegant, tasty. Mix the eggs with the arugula and you have a masterpiece.
The second part of my learnings today: I realized I don’t always have to make things complicated, and I can always just have a big salad. So, I did a lot of that today.
For lunch, a BLT&A salad on a bed of arugula. Um, it was easy to make, and also incredibly yummy!! Also, I felt incredible after I ate it. So, there’s that.
I enjoyed it so much, and was so impressed with my newfound poached egg skillz, that I decided to combine the two for dinner. I added apples to the dinner salad, too, and it was everything I ever wanted in a meal. Feeling like I can last six more weeks. Maybe.
