Inadvertent Flower


Separating eggs tonight for homemade ice cream, and my daughter all of a sudden exclaimed “Look mom, it’s an egg yolk flower!” And indeed it is! Gotta love 5 year olds for noticing beauty in routine…


Inventing Breakfast From Leftovers…


Excited this morning to realize I had leftover white rice, wilted greens, and mild artisinal sausage in the fridge (from three totally different meals). A half hour later with an egg simmered to perfection and some seasonings…a delicious congee breakfast! Lovely memories of traveling in Asia right now. The power of food to conjure experience.
