Success is...


...cooking your first poached egg!

The tricks of the trade (or so I've read)

1 egg
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp spoon vinegar
& heat water up right under boiling point

Gently crack the egg into a large cooking spoon,
set egg down gently in the pot, and ta da!

We're so lucky to know someone who raises chickens, we get a dozen fresh eggs every week. :)

I've been addicted to spinach since I've been home.
I love spinach with chopped up onions, cherry tomatoes, avocado, chopped apples & my homemade dressing.

*Did you know: Onions have no taste? Only smell, they have the texture of an apple.* ~ 3rd grade knowledge right thurrr

Steph's fav homemade dressing:

-1 tsp avocado
-1 tsp dijon mustard
-extra virgin olive oil
-splash of red wine vinegar
-Maggie seasoning sauce
-pepper

*I learned that there's a difference between Olive Oil & Extra Virgin Olive Oil, haha all these years. You cook with Olive Oil.. EVOO is usually consumed raw.* (Even though you can cook with EVOO like Rachael Ray)

Just whisk away & pour on top of your salad and enjoy.

  5. Poached eggs always aesthetically look good to me, but I can never bring myself to actually eat one. LOL. I have this thing about runny yolks. It has to be scrambled or hard boiled for me! LOL! But your dish sure LOOKS good! :)
