Looks good, CG. I love eggy dishes for dinner and probably have it at least once a week. Good way to use up bits of veggies and cheese.

I had to have Mexican today, not because I had a craving, but because I had to trim some epazote from my hydroponic plant, and had to use it! I had some cremini that I wanted to use, so I made a batch of Spicy Pasilla-Mushroom Tacos, from Rick Bayless's Kitchen, which calls for a quarter cup of epazote. I had some of that pasilla paste in the freezer, which is the most time consuming part of the recipe. I added some dried porcinis, soaked and cleaned, since I didn't have the more flavorful mushrooms called for, but I've made it with white mushrooms, and it's still delicious. Good without the epazote, as well, but like a lot of things, once you have it, it's not the same without!

We eat weird. That, plus the other half of the muffin, was my solid food for the day. Otherwise, I manage just fine on two cups of tea, two cups of coffee...and my nightly glass of wine. It's a fruit, but in juice form.

homemade chicken salad with grapes, egg, toasted pecans, cranberries and sweet salad cubes with a surprisingly good cantaloupe I bought at the farmers market.

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

I was starving this afternoon and it's cloudy today so the natural lighting was bad, but here's a pic from a couple of months ago. YUM
