couldn't agree more

"I feel like this blog has suffered from a bit of mission creep lately. Know this: I am still really, really dedicated to eating and loving stuff. Case in point: I realized recently that you can improve almost any savory food by frying a shallot in butter and salt til it’s brown and crispy, draining the shallot on a paper towel, then sprinkling it on top (of whatever).

Here the shallot adorns a pile of rosemary mashed potatoes, some braised kale, and a poached egg. Don’t you wish your boy-or-girlfriend made lunch like me?"

Let's just say that I cracked up at the labels on your post. Fucking winter, indeed. Sheesh!

But boy, do I love eggs for lunch--or dinner. Not so much for breakfast. But with frizzled shallots on top, a winner for sure. (I had a poached egg on succotash today for lunch!)

sufferin' succotash (borrowed from above), cassie! this is such a great idea, i can't wait to try it with my earth balance 'butter' and find out that it doesn't work!! and that alcohol totally takes the sting out of not being able to eat real cheese! friday night! yeah!!!
