Stuff On Toast

Breakfast, Sandwiches, Snacks

Last Friday my stove decided to have a tantrum and stopped working. Kind of annoying…I had serious cooking plans for a picnic. Instead I just ate wine and half a cupcake. It worked out juuuust fine.

Cut to this week: still no stove…I kinda started hoping it needed to be replaced. How dreamy are those O’Keefe and Merritt stoves?! In pale blue?! Hello cuteness!

Sooo…I dug out my toaster oven and started putting stuff on toast. All sorts of stuff. Possibilities…endless.

And then, as soon as my stove was fixed, I made this poached egg and put it on a piece of bread with some salt, pepper and parmesan. Runny eggs are just swoon-worthy, aren’t they?!

Almond butter and sliced strawberries. Delicious. Sweet. Killer combo.

I’m not even gonna start by telling you that turkey bacon compares to regular bacon. It just doesn’t. It can’t. Impossible. It’s healthier, though, so there’s that.

BACON > TURKEY BACON/EVERYTHING…for life.

But I just bought a few bathing suits this week and have yet to try them on. Ugh.

So here you have it: turkey bacon, a few basil leaves, a swipe of veganaise and a few sliced tomatoes on toast.

P.S. I don’t try bathing suits on in stores anymore. The lighting is heartbreaking. So now I just buy a bunch on a credit card, try them on at my apt, and take the ones that don’t work back to the store. Total game changer. Have you tried this?

Avocado on Toast is an all time fav.  Adding some ricotta to the mix took it to a whole other level of amazingness.

In other news, this weekend I’m gonna celebrate my reunion with my kitchen by making something crazy…can we say doughnuts?! I dunno…they might be in mini form, they might be girly and pink, or they might have sprinkles in them, maybe even some amazing glaze on top. Who knows…the world is my doughnut…or whatever.

Meatballs!

Whoaaa! Meatballs!!!

After watching 7 straight episodes of The Jersey Shore, I decided I needed to make meatballs. I had never seen the show before and after the first episode I literally couldn’t pull myself away. It’s incredible.

I learned all about “GTL” and how to avoid “grenades.” And what “t-shirt time” means. My favorite part is kinda how The Situation cooks Sunday dinners for all of them.  And he always, ALWAYS make meatballs. I can’t even try and pronouce meatballs the way they do.

And no, this recipe didn’t come from The Situation, whom by the way, just came out with a book that supposedly promises recipes for all of the food he cooks on Sundays. Umm…can we say Christmas present? Yeah, I’m pumped.

This recipe came from The Pioneer Woman because I’m not sure she’s ever made a bad meal in her life. And because she says funnier and whittier things than all of us combined.

Breakfast, Cookies, Sandwiches, Scones & Muffins

Scones! Milky tea! Big hats! Fanciness! Pinkies in the air!

These are all of the things I think of when I hear ‘Tea Party’. So when my friend Johnna was gifted a tea set that’s been in her families for generations, we thought we might break it in with a little tea and our lady friends. Heck yes, tea party!

Wanna get your tea party on? Ooooof course you do. Here’s are a few suggestions for tea party success:

Grab one of your bestest friends in the whole wide world, ’cause you’ll need company when making the grocery list, the shopping, the cooking and cleaning.
