I just made one of the most delicious things I have ever made. Does this look appetizing or like puke? I don’t know, but it’s awesome. I am very grateful to have learned how to just make shit up as I go. I heartily recommend it.

Inspired by Jacques Pepin’s Eggs Jeannette, found via this Chowhound thread.

Ingredients:

  • 2 hardboiled eggs
  • snow peas
  • spinach
  • grainy mustard
  • chopped garlic (I think it may actually be best to use the stuff from a jar, since it’s milder)
  • heavy cream (or milk?)
  • paprika
  • dried parsley
  • paprika
  • salt
  • black pepper (grind it yourself pls)
  • butter

Procedure:

  1. Slice the eggs in half and remove the yolks, as if you were making deviled eggs.
  2. In a bowl, mash the yolks with garlic, cream (just a bit), parsley, paprika, salt, and pepper, into a paste.
  3. Put paste back into egg halves. You should have some left over.
  4. To remaining paste (yum, what a word, paste) add mustard, more garlic, like a teaspoon of water, and whatever else you like of the paste ingredients (more pepper?), to make a tasty sauce.
  5. Heat some butter in a skillet over medium. When it’s hot, add the eggs, face-down. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until browned. God, that looks like the best thing ever. Put the eggs on a plate.
  6. Add a bit more butter to the pan. Add snow pea pods, toss until hot. Add spinach. When spinach is juuuuuuust barely wilted, stir in most of the remaining sauce. When that’s hot, put it next to those eggs on that plate.
  7. Top the eggs with the remaining sauce.
  8. Die happy.

First G+ link I’ve seen – Article: When Willpower is Trumped by Bad Habits

I was reading this article (I often read Zen Habits and it inspired this tumblog as well as http://fitnow.posterous.com) and I noticed an interesting thing… there is a “comment on G+” link at the bottom of the page. This is the first time I have seen a link like this appear in an article. Very clever of Google, it brings people back into their world. I would imagine that since the article was written on Google Docs the default moving forward will be “share on G+”. Aspiring writers, here is a new communication platform.

Diet cheat day wrap-up

http://fitnow.posterous.com/diet-cheat-day-commences All in all not bad for a diet cheat day. For lunch I ate two slices of
pizza but since L was with me I never managed to head back for a
late-afternoon apple fritter.

Happy hour included some beignet my colleague David brought in. A few
tortilla chips as well. Dinner was 100% primal though with rib-eyes and New York steaks with a
side of salad.

I am definitely getting ready for August: a new goal for the month, a
trip to somewhere new, and then getting back into the school-time
schedule at the end of the month.
