A Better Day

Today was a better day, the puppy got up and went straight out, and I started out with a great, although slightly less than perfect breakfast.  Breakfast was a nostalgic trip back to when I lived in England and I was introduced to soft boiled eggs and toast soldiers.  Toast soldiers are pieces of toast cut into long rectangles so you can dip them into yummy, ooey, gooey, yolk.

Unfortunately I did not pay enough attention to the time and my should be soft boiled egg came out a hard boiled egg.

Ce la vie!

Today is a better day.

Cantaloupe makes a repeat appearance.

Lunch was a spinach salad made with the rest of the antipasti mix, some pecorino romano, and an oil and vinegar dressing topped with a peperoncini.

The salad was spectacular and filling.

 The phones finally got fixed (a plus/minus deal).

And work went on just like any other typical day.

 I had more time and more energy to create a dinner for one.

Steak and cheese quesadilla with onion and tomato, topped with sour cream. 

Corn salad with tomato, onion, jalapeno, radish and a dressing of olive oil, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper.

On top of a bed of spinach. 

A little too much for one, I had plenty of corn salad left over…..lunch tomorrow?
