Good 39º pouring rain morning.
Since yesterday, and inch and three-quarters!
I actually cooked breakfast yesterday for breakfast!
Two eggs in my poacher, topped with some of that Fisherman's Wharf seasoning and sea salt, laid in a bed of baby spinach and tomatoes and topped with Parmesan cheese.....
Lots of protein and soooooo good!
Mostly stayed in all day. Raining on and off.
Chatted with Brian, Kristen, and Jerry's mom. She was having a good time at her niece's in Hesperia celebrating her 88th birthday.
Dinner was a one pot-one dish meal.
Into the rice cooker I put a couple cups of rice medley (brown rice, wild rice, red rice, sweet brown rice) and a half cup of brown rice. Then about 3 cups of chicken stock, can of sliced mushrooms, broccoli, partially cooked mini carrots, garlic cloves that had been partially cooked til soft, and about 1 cup of crumbled bacon...
Pretty darned good! Think I'll have some for breakfast!
