I took a couple of weeks off from Living Tastefully's Passions to Pastry -- to get caught up on all of the things I need to do. I am more anxiety-ridden at this time of year than any other. The vegetable garden must be planted. Recently (and not so recently) installed windows need painting. Interior projects (i.e. more painting). Chores that I am off-the-hook on during the winter months are now everywhere I turn -- mowing the lawn -- trimming the hedges -- figuring out what to do with all of the rhubarb! Our daughter needs to be packed up from school and moved home for the summer. Oh... did I mention a wedding? All just the tip of the iceberg. The sad thing is... I don't feel like I accomplished very much of what is on my must-do list. I keep telling myself... it will get done. It always does.
But, I also had some fun...
I biked a lot.
I did a photo shoot for my kitchen designer and friend, Kathy.
and, I spent time in my kitchen.
The Sourdough with Avocado, Poached Egg, and Salsa was our breakfast yesterday. Simple preparation and delicious. It left me craving more.
RECIPE: Toast a thick slice of tangy sourdough bread. Fan a sliced avocado half over the toast. Top with a poached egg, and load on the salsa!
