If today were going to have a theme song, it would be Last Night I Didn’t Get to Sleep at All, not because of some great pining over an unrequited love as Marilyn McCoo sings, but because I was listening to Instructions for Dancing and playing Best Fiends (yes, I always multi-task while listening to an audiobook.). Before I knew it, it was well after midnight and since I’d done it the night before, all I could think was:
Anyway, that makes two mornings where I’ve woken up feeling less than chipper and that seriously affects creativity as I’m sure many of you have experienced when you don’t get your requisite 10 (haha) hours of sleep. 😉
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the weather. The temperatures this week have been like someone tossing a dart at a bunch of numbers on a board: 26 70 18 50 . . . But I’m trying hard to be like Huck
🎵 rain, snow, wind, warm cold is totally beyond fine I'm happy to see what the day brings cause living each day just makes me sing I lived in a shelter, and outside it's all sublime 🎵 Huck's song
This week I tried a few different recipes. Two were viral ones and I was not impressed. First, I tried the Bulgarian egg toast and am pretty sure I’ll stick with scrambled eggs on toast or omelet with no toast. It was simple and fine but my favorite thing about it was the feta (of course, it’s cheese!), which I can just as easily add to scrambled eggs.
The second was Custard Toast or Yogurt Toast. Here is my attempt:
I did two things differently from the recipe. (1) I didn’t use a lot of sweetener because I just don’t enjoy it that much. However, this recipe is so bland that you absolutely need the flavor so I ended up adding a dollop of maple syrup. I think adding some cinnamon to the yogurt, egg, and honey would be a great idea. It is the sweetener that makes everyone so happy, I think. (2) Also, I didn’t use white bread because I only have multi-grain and probably wouldn’t use white bread anyway. The only way in which the recipe suffered because of it was that the multi-grain is denser so you couldn’t smoosh it down to provide a trough for the egg/yogurt. This recipe is probably going into the “meh” pile. The blueberries were really nice though. 😀
These are new keeper recipes: Baked portobello mushrooms (vegetarian, could be made vegan; so, so yummy!). I am still looking for the elusive Heath’s Bits O Brickle coffee cake from my childhood. This is the second recipe I’ve tried; it’s good but not quite the one. (Sorry I didn’t take pics.)
