I kind of went overboard on the kale today. I have curly, purple, and dino. So....since I'm trying to come up with a "green" side to go with the German pork tenderloin and potato pancakes recipes I'm testing this week...I stemmed (is that a word--for removing the stems?) the purple and dino kale, cut it in skinny ribbons, wilted it in GOOSE fat and tossed in some roasted sliced almonds, dried cranberries, a bit of smoked paprika, garlic, and dressed it with a vinaigrette using apple cider, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, and maple syrup. That was yummy. But then, I had to do something else. Since I had made rice of the prairies, I drained some of that and "popped" it in a hot skillet with GOOSE fat, took some warm kale, red onion, and dressed that with the same vinaigrette but I added a smidge of Dijon mustard. I massaged that in to the lightly cooked kale and then topped it with the popped grass of the prairies. OMG, I am addicted to popped grass of the prairies in a kale "salad" topped with a poached egg.

I love zucchini fritters/pancakes. I cut back on the guilt factor by eating them topped with fresh salsa.

(I'm just having the toast and eggs, allergic dontcha-know)
I'm coming to your house for breakfast. That looks so good.

My blood sugar was in the low-normal range this morning, so I treated myself to some whole wheat toast with butter and blueberry jelly. A couple of gently poached eggs with breakfast sausage links round out breakfast. I poach the eggs in hot, not boiliing or even simmering water. The water is salted so as to season the eggs. They come out so tender and tasty that way, with the soft-runny yolk taking the star roll.

I love a good runny yolk, poached, soft boiled, over easy, I don't care... but they don't like me any more. For some reason, I get the worst stomach ache of my life if I eat eggs that are not scrambled or hard cooked.
When I was young, single and lived alone, I ate alot of eggs with steamed white rice... it's a cheap and friendly.

Don't know your idea of what the next life will be like. But I believe we will have perfected bodies, in their prime. And I have no idea what we will use to keep up our energy levels, but if those bodies are like these bodies, they have teeth. And if we have teeth, I would assume that we will eat something. And with perfect bodies, no allergies, not stomach or intestinal issues, no diabetes, or other diet related problems either. I think we will know how to make wonderful food that is good for us, and that won't cause obesity, or other problems. We will learn how to moderate, and truly enjoy life, and understand the things that are truly important, while discarding those that seem important here, but really aren't.

You just might get to eat eggs with runny yolks again.

I remember hearing or reading something about runny yolks and folks of certain ages, that we, I mean, some folks shouldn't eat them any longer, something about it making you sick? Immune systems or something of the sort, my mind fails me at times

Leftovers from a previous recipe (it called for deseeded tomatoes and some anchovies), so.....I had anchovies on toast with some tomato pulpy seeds! Refreshing combo!

Had leftover fish and Brussels sprouts from Monday night's dinner, followed by coffee (with cream), and a multivitamin.
