With all the cool and exotic ingredients I have been posting lately you probably think that we are a pampered bunch around here and while the wish for that to be true is evident, the fact is we are not - I still get up and my assistant puts on my Pradas for me one foot at a time just like anyone else.
My son used to have a hard time in grade school during lunch time since he had more 'custom' made lunches that differed significantly from the average peanut butter and jelly (pb&j) of his classmates. This conflict was so severe that he often asked me to 'just leave out dessert' since it was usually the sweets that threw the other kids into a lunch grabbing frenzy.
When it gets colder soups kick in but until then its a sandwich, in this case nice and rare roast beef with a little DUDEK mustard from my good friend Buffalodick, a little thinly sliced onion and some farmhouse cheddar that all gets drizzled with a little vinegar and oil and fresh black pepper - now thats a nice lunch!
Breakfast is, ironically, how I start my day - I know, a little cliche, but I cant figure out any other way. I have made it pretty clear how much I like eggs and an egg sandwich fits the bill.
Toasted english muffin with bacon, egg, cheese, tomato, and fresh mayo are partners in crime, and you? How do you put on your Pradas?
Three more posts till I hit 1000 - I had planned on presenting the best of those 1000 and I realized I havent had that one yet so who knows what will happen - chances are it will be a day like any other day. Happy Gridlock Alert Days! NYC has that as one of hour holiday alerts......(not the happy part but the warning part)...I wear size 10 -10.5, 43 european if anyone wants to buy me some sensible shoes.
