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?)
