Don't just stare at it.

What once started out as a primarily food blog has morphed a lot over the years. And I've come to terms with that. But every once in a while you need some good food porn, right? Tonight seems like the night. Brad had a fantasy football party at work (lame), so I took advantage and decided to make breakfast for dinner. I haven't been to the store in a bit, so I had to make do with what little produce I had in the fridge - why, huevos rancheros! (Sort of.) And now that is has been made and consumed, I'm not sure why I've never made a meal like this before.

Bottom - very quickly pan fried tortilla (my favorite jalapeno corn tortillas). Middle - leftover black beans sauteed with a dollop of salsa, a squeeze of lime, garden basil, and some yellow pepper from Saturday's farmers market. Top - two fried eggs.

Close, but something is missing....

Greek yogurt and pepper!


This was just plain yum. Now, if I'd remembered to chop up some onion and had a jalapeno to add, this would be amazing. But seriously, this was clean and fresh and flavorful. And satisfying. Especially now that I've been running a lot, I'm hungry ALL the time. I feel like I'm almost always immediately hungry again after I finish eating. But this has some lasting power! (two hours and counting - still not hunting for snacks!) 

While I've got you, some other recent exploits...

Summer potato salad with fresh corn and red peppers, and rosemary from my garden.

Homemade zucchini bread grilled cheese. 

Adult milkshakes (Rum Chada + ice cream - a Ceile special).

Had to throw in a drink because, while I rarely have more than one, I've been mad craving the beer and cocktails this summer!

And just for good measure, antiques!!! Picked this up a few months ago and never shared. I adore it. 

I'm on the lookout for this so I have a pair for the windowsill......

Swoony swoon, all around.
