a little break and a good egg


When your hand hurts from editing and you need some dinner in a hurry so you can get back to work and you suddenly have more tomatoes than you can humanly eat alone and little else in the pantry here is what I suggest:

Cut up some excellent tomatoes and some red onion--better yet, sauté the two until they are soft and sweet...add a little basil or thyme, maybe tear a little smoky ham, prosciutto or even black forest. Poach some excellent eggs and serve on top with a crack of pepper and a little sea salt.
Peek into the yolk and dip your spoon in or mop with some good crusty bread. My new thing is that I want poached eggs on top of everything: sauteed spinach, mushrooms, boiled new potatoes, what else?

(hey, who needs some tomatoes?)

I am really into these poach pods I got at the food-coop, not only do they poach a mean egg, they double as a teething toy for my Eden.
And I need tomatoes! why, do you have some spare?

well... if you just happen to be driving out this way... i mean, it's not like I would EVER say NO to a tomato, AND if you happen to need some fresh garden jalapenos in return...
