Is there any food item better than slightly stale sourdough bread toasted to a fragrant golden brown with a generous smear of fresh butter? I think not. Buttered toast is one of life’s simplest and most wonderful culinary pleasures. Yum.
A fried egg and some strawberries kept my toast company this morning. They were both delicious in their own right, but my mind was preoccupied with the crunchy, buttery goodness of the toast. I am officially in love with the farmers market bakery that makes this stuff. It’s actually whole white wheat bread…all the fiber of whole wheat bread with the delicate flavor of white.
For lunch, I am packing a color coded salad. A color coded salad is 1. something white or brown (beans) + 2. A green herb or veggie (parsley) + a red vegetable (bell pepper) + dressing (olive oil and red wine vinegar + an optional sprinkling of cheese or nuts. It’s any easy formula that uses up whatever I have on hand and generates tasty, colorful salads for lunch.
With it, I packed rye crackers, an orange, and a bag of walnuts, chocolate chips, and a handful of granola.
Off to work with me…see you all tonight!
