I usually don't have the energy to cook a full meal for myself and so I find I'll merely reheat leftovers. As this has been my pattern for quite some time, eventually, I found I like some small ways to spice up the food we made over the weekend. Lately, that little kick has been the poached egg.
Do you poach eggs? I used to be afraid to, but I promise its so very easy! Plus its a healthy.
- and here is a ridiculously specific video - I'll never use a thermometer for my eggs, nevertheless this short visual is very helpful.
I also used to limit the poached egg to a breakfast treat on top of toast. Now I'll put one over chili, rice, pizza, salad, black beans, really anything!
Here I had a spicy tomato couscous.
It had dried out a bit and plus, I wanted a little boost of protein...
Is there anything you are intimidated to cook? (I'm still a bit nervous to bake my own bread)
Is there anything you like to add to leftovers to elevate them a bit?
Are your weeks getting darker and colder to the point that an egg can be exciting? yes? me too!
