Upon survey of the most frequently discussed topics on this blog, aside from the Dallas Cowboys and therefore Mike’s roller coaster of emotions [Dallas won today so his roller coaster car is on the up climb], it’s no surprise that ramen and brunch came out on top. True to trend, this Sunday I escaped football by brunching; home-made brunch at Maddy’s! After a series of texts, google searches, and recipe book page turns, Kayla, Maddy and I decided on green eggs and
ham bacon with a side of potato rosti and fresh fruit.
for a refreshing twist on the caesar… cut cucumbers into little cubes | add to glass with lime wedges | muddle | then go about your caesar-ly way! courtesy of Maddy click here for the recipe Green Eggs [spinach scrambled eggs] | serves 4 Sam-i-am’s recipe from Out To Brunch at Mildred Pierce Restaurant 2.5 cups spinach leaves | tightly packed 12 large eggs 1tsp kosher salt 1tbsp unsalted butter blanch spinach | drain and squeeze excess water in a blender or food processor purée eggs + spinach + salt melt butter in a large omelette pan | med heat when sizzling add the green eggs and continuously stir gently with a spatula until it sets Though we did not eat them in a box and we did not eat them with a fox we did eat them with these 2 fur balls. As we brunch dated, Charlie [son to Maddy] and Hulk [son to Kayla] had their own puppy play date so I thought it appropriate to include them in this post. It’s hard to resist not sharing these mugs. Onto the next meal. After leaving Whoville I re-entered the world for Football Sunday. I arrived home to find Mike in pasta mode with 2 TVs on each playing a different football game; multitasking. As he watched, he rolled, layered, cut, and spread the ricotta + spinach lasagna together. Thought it’s been a long time since I last ate lasagna, images of Garfield never fade. The gigantic home-made porchetta buns from last week made a re-appearance to live their last leg as garlic bread. YUM! -until next week! football pic from USA Today [Thomas Campbell]
