Tomato, Mozzarella, Pesto and Asparagus Sandwiches

I’ve been on Spring Break this week from culinary school, and have been trying to not cook. At all. I did make soup earlier in the week, but I’m not counting that since it wasn’t a “big meal.” Hey, anything to justify it! I had some juicy tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, pesto, asparagus and balsamic vinegar. Thankfully, those are among my daughter’s favorites. Yay, it’s a win-win! Just slice and slather, and you’ve got a quick and yummy dinner. Not the best picture either, but the iPhone was accessible, the good camera was not. It’s nothing newsworthy or probably even blogworthy, but it’s all I’ve got at the moment.. LOL. Have a BEAUTIFUL week 🙂

Fried Egg On A Salad

Image

I had the most unusual craving tonight. I was craving a fried egg on a salad. Strange, I know. I don’t ever remember seeing one before, but it just flew into my head as I was getting ready to prepare dinner. I had already marinated some locally-grown heirloom tomatoes and red onions in oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, dab brown mustard, salt, pepper and a dash of sugar. I decided to toss some lettuce in with it, threw in some bleu cheese crumbles and added some of my candied pecans I had leftover from another recipe earlier in the week. Then, it was simply a matter of frying an egg and placing it on top. It was runny; it had to be. That’s what I was craving. Good grief, someone help me… LOL. The verdict is that it is FABULOUSLY delicious. My teen daughter gives it two-thumbs up. Yay.
