busy being busy

y computer was infected with 12 virus and 16 trojans totally halting my ability to do anything until I fixed it - fixing it took 3 days. While I was on this mission to fix it I was on a ration of bread and water and only one shower and one hour of exercise in the yard - supervised. As you can imagine I am glad to be done with that.



To welcome me back I thought a caprese salad was in order.



The age old stuff the basil and the bufala in the the whole tomato presentation but I will be darned if it doesnt look as good as it tastes.



Whenever I want to get back to reality I eat chile. Red chile with blue corn tortillas makes an enchilada my grandfather would be proud of.



Why have one egg when you can have two!

Caprese salad is my favorite.

Danielle said...

since you have 2 eggs, maybe you can give one of them to me! (I haven't had breakfast yet)...then I'll have the salad for lunch, thank you very much.

Summer salad.....now I need some artisan bread to go with them. Yummy!
Don't forget to inform me when you start making wine. I love Shiraz, Cab. and Pinot Noir...and Pinot Grigio!

I've told you and told you to stay off those porn sites! The food looks amazing as usual..

Pooja said...

Caprese salad looks awesome! Yeah I can hardly stop having one egg :)

Anette said...

I know you prefer the aesthetic when it comes to presentation of your food... You don't mind it to get a bit ugly while eating it? I just need to stab those yolks to let them run and just slurp them together with the salad. I might have to change my t-shirt afterwards, since it probably have yellow egg yolk down the front.

danielle: sounds like a good plan

angies: your baton would be perfect

ungourmet: same for me - each bite is like the very first

jenn: virus and malware - yuck!

marjie: is the egg council paying you off or what?

snugs: its the pop-ups

pooja: I often wish they could breed an egg with a super large yolk -

anette: you are right except I am such a yolk fanatic that I save the yolk by eating all around it until the very last....

Cucinista said...

Mmmm. Nothing like a caprese to revitalize the spirits. Also I have a chili plant that's begging for your eggs, salsa, and blue corn tortillas...

Donna-FFW said...

Absolutely hands job, I mean hands down, my most favorite salad like ever!

Not much better than a good caprese!

Reeni♥ said...

I'm sorry about the virus. That's the most delicious Caprese salad I've ever seen!!

girlichef said...

They both look awesome! I love blue corn for some reason...it feels so earthy and comforting to me. Bet it feels good to be all fixed up...how frustrating!!!

burpandslurp said...

why have two eggs when you can have three? LOVE runny yolks!
btw, I posted abt the NY blogger meet-up...it'll be cool if you can join us! :-)

5 Star Foodie said...

I also had about that many viruses on my computer a few months ago - that was quite a mess. Great looking caprese, always my favorite!

lk (Healthy Delicious) said...

Dhanggit said...

I love this salad!! Unfortunately I always bring virus to my computer LOL!! good luck!

Ciao Chow Linda said...

I don't know where you get your mozzarella, but that mozzarella di bufala looks soo fresh and delicious - same for tomatoes - looks like you plucked them ripe off the vine.

Grace said...

dang trojans. they give me more trouble than human viruses (viri? i like that better). meanwhile, i want an oozy-egg-topped spicy dish this instant.

Katherine Aucoin said...

What a gorgeous caprese salad. The colors are drool worthy all by themselves.

buffalodick said...

An egg without hot sauce is a day without sunshine...

lisaiscooking said...

That is a great looking caprese! I want that enchilada too.

The Diva on a Diet said...

That Caprese looks like summer on a plate. Heavenly. Don't even get me started on the enchiladas ... just hand them over and no one will get hurt. ;)

Meanwhile, sorry about the viral woes. Ack! Glad to see you're back in business.

Just telling it like it is said...

too much wine..but I love the pictures...and the tomatoes

Juliana said...

Love the caprese salad...the funny thing is that we just had this for dinner :-)
I am glad that you got rid of the virus...we just went through this issue a week ago...

farida said...

I love Caprese salad. It's easy to make and so summery. I like your idea with two eggs:) the more the better:)

Gina said...

Okay...it's late and I'm free associating.....beans with eggs make me think of new year's day...cause in the south you must eat your beans for good luck that day....and why not encourage a sunny year with an egg sunny side up?....so thinking about new year's eve...I was wondering what you think about new year's eve in times square...or the race on the eve in central park....

too much too many? something everybody should do once in their life? wait till dick clark goes to the happy cloud in the sky?

anyways...just wondering....

Jamie said...

Love love love tomato and mozzarella salad and yours is truly gorgeous! That egg dish looks pretty fantastic, too, and I could just see that for lunch.

T.W. Barritt at Culinary Types said...

Love the egg topping! I keep trying that as a final touch, and it never looks as good.

Tanya Kristine said...

eggs look like titties! that's my boy!

i made a caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes, string mozerlla cheese (had to improvise), basil from my garden and $35 a bottle unprocessed olive oil. it. was. amazing.

you got too many people coming here now...don't forget your first people. well...kinda first.

TavoLini said...

Eggs on enchiladas! That's a damn good idea.

You might want to switch to Linux. I use Ubuntu on my computer and it never gets all the viruses, spyware and junk. Also be careful using your flash drive in any other computer.

TavoLini said...

Oh wait--do you have a mac? If so, please ignore my previous comment.

Selba said...

Oh my... it sounds so scary about your computer, good that it's back to normal again.

Caprese salad sounds great! :)

Parita said...

Jason said...

Mother of God! That salad looks amazing!!! Where do you buy your cheese from?

Hummingbird Appetite said...

Chef Fresco said...

daphne said...

Jeff said...

Dude I have been on a caprese salad kick lately. Tomatoes are starting to pop up and my bloody tomatoes need to turn red. Paired with moz and a basil plant that won't die I am in heaven!!

Hug on the computer. Hate dealing with them and that is all I do for a living.

pinknest said...
