Huevos Rancheros

Pretty good dinner. It's a riff on a recipe I learned on the Hilah Cooking website. I toasted a corn tortilla in the oven. On top, I spread some vegetarian refried beans. I poached an egg stovetop on a bed of Paul Newman salsa, then put the egg and salsa on the beans and tortilla. I sprinkled a little Texas Pete hot sauce and some olive oil on top, plus some grated parmigiano cheese. Iced tea to drink. Fresh bosc pear for dessert.

Blackberry Delight

We are blessed with a lot of goat cheese, but the chèvre's expiration is approaching. Today's breakfast is blackberries over goat cheese spread on toasted rye bread. Beverage, as usual, is hot coffee -- today, it's a spicy Ethiopian.

Eggs Poached in What I Found in the Pantry

I was inspired by Hilah Cooking's huevos rancheros recipe, but I made do with what was in the cupboard and the refrigerator. In the oven, I toasted until crispy a flour tortilla. I topped it with microwaved Heinz curry beans. In a sauté pan, I heated and thickened tomato basil sauce. I heated grape tomatoes in it and pushed them to the sides. I poached two eggs in the sauce, covering for a time to cook the top. I put the eggs and sauce over the curry beans on the tortilla. It was delicious! I wish I had something green to put on top, but c'est la vie.
