breakfast for one

 My nest is empty today, as both children head off to do their own work of growing and learning. It's quiet. The dishes are done, beds made and laundry rolling. I've been writing all morning. My book is in the final homestretch, and I'm reveling in the unfamiliar productivity of daytime hours. My favorite part of this morning was breakfast. I didn't eat until two other breakfasts, lunch-making, a school bus and long car ride had passed. But when I opened the refrigerator and asked myself what I wanted... mmmm that was FUN! And delicious...
Really, a fried egg makes everything better! I placed one on a warm tortilla and topped it off with homemade salsa verde (tomatillos are in season up here!), roasted sungolds tomatoes and grated locatelli cheese. It was simply divine! I think I'll do it again tomorrow!

  1. Ooooh - that looks fantastic! Quiet time alone to set things right and work on a project also sounds divine.

  2. Yummy post!

  3. Lovely artistic breakfast. Mine has been a fried egg, half an avocado, and this crazy chinese chile sauce we get here in Lima. Divine.

    Can't wait for that book!
