Baked Eggs in Avocado

Even when you're in a hurry, it's always possible to enjoy a nourishing meal. Simply crack two eggs into a sliced avocado and bake. When you finish getting dressed and checking your messages, breakfast is ready. Wow, was this delicious! Choose a large size avocado with a large seed and hole, so there's room for the egg without spilling over. The best choice is a Hass avocado. Not a Pinkerton or Fuerte avocado - as they have very small seeds, i.e. small holes. You may need to hollow out the ...

Fiddleheads! What to do?

Today I had just 10 minutes for lunch. These coiled-up fern shoots showed up at my local organic market. They come up in the forest in the spring. Their taste is sweet - something like wild asparagus and green beans. Since I love asparagus omelets, I thought I'd experiment with fiddleheads, throwing in a few shiitakes and garlic. Yummilicious! A Fiddlehead Shiitake Omelet!
