Double Bowl-ing It

Instead of “double fisting” with 2 drinks with lunch, I’m double bowl-ing it today.


One needs a fork, one needs a spoon.

PS: Did you know about Sabrina’s “I Love Salad Challenge”? It’s a great way to put your creativity to use and get in the kitchen!

This salad isn’t very “loaded”, but I love the mix of crisp lettuce, creamy avocado, and sweet and crunchy corn. A little lime juice, olive oil, and salt are all you need on this!

And the main part of lunch is one of my favorite meals now-a-days. Grains, beans, eggs, salsa.

Why is this so good?

Today the base is oatbran, topped with pinto beans and corn. Then I cooked 2 eggs (over easy) with salt, pepper, and ancho chile powder, and topped all that with some spicy salsa.

I know some people don’t like runny eggs (and I used to be one of ‘em!), but I’m pretty sure a perfectly runny egg can make any dish better.

I know Sophia agrees with me ;) She’s my egg-lovin’ twin, that girl.

These layered egg dishes are my latest obsession – I just can’t get enough of them!


What’s your latest food obsession?

    My latest food obsessions are (1) just about anything with hummus and (2) pretty much any combination of chocolate and hazelnuts.

    Not together, though. ;)

    I’ve been going through a pureed-vegetables-in-everything streak. Sweet potatoes in my pancakes, pumpkin in my oatmeal…I sense carrot muffins and zucchini muffins in the very near future too.

    I’m obsessed with spinach lately. I’ve added it to everything and have to keep buying more. So much flavor in that little green leaf.

    LOL, you crack me up.

    If we ever get to cook together….we NEED to feature runny eggs. There’s nothing more wonderful than runny eggs, for sure! (unless it’s served with bacon and cheese….)

    as the saying goes, two bowls are better than one… (or something like that ;))

    just recently I have rediscovered the joy of a perfectly runny egg. Life’s simplest pleasures, no?

    I use to despise runny eggs until recently too. It’s funny how your tastes change over time.

    hmm – you’ve got me with bean/eggs/and salsa but I’m not sure about oat bran as the grain! Does this turn out like breakfast-cereal-meets-huevos rancheros? I’m intrigued :)

    • Brandi replied: — April 28th, 2010 at 7:55 am

      Yes, kind of! I actually love meals like this with RICE as the base, but I was too lazy to cook that, so I went with oatbran :) It’s really good for breakfast, but I like it for any meal now.
