Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Bread

9-7-2015 005

What is it about homemade bread that makes me happy? Watching flour and a few other ingredients come together to make a fantastic meal!

I decided that oatmeal would be the “ingredient of the week” and opted to make a simple white bread but incorporated 4 heaping cups of old fashioned oatmeal with raisins in the flour mixture.

Quite delicious it turned out. Everyone seemed to enjoy it as before the end of the day, one loaf was gone!

A Hearty Brunch: Asparagus-Potato-and-Tomato goodness……with two sunny-side-up eggs!

I love having time in the morning to make a good breakfast that ties me over through a good portion of the day…..and Saturday was the day for me to take a good look in my fridge and see what I could incorporate into a healthy yummy breakfast.

Having purchased a bunch of asparagus earlier in the week, I took that out, one potato, one tomato and two eggs….peeled the potato and made thin slices using a mandolin, fried them in a small pan for a few minutes with half a chopped onion and a dash of sea salt and freshly ground peppercorn, and then placed two eggs in the same pan….can I say that it was absolutely delicious and fulfilling? Two slices of wheat toast made this a great brunch start to my day.

What did you make yourself for breakfast today?
