French Toast with Day Old Baguette

It seems every time I buy a baguette it ends up rock hard the next day.  This is what I do to not feel guilty, plus I love french toast!  I use milk, eggs, vanilla (lots) and cinnamon for the mixture to soak the bread in.        

Chicken, broccoli, roasted tomato, herbed cheese omelette

Omelettes are a window to what is in my refrigerator at the moment.  Fairway has delicious Australian roasted tomatoes that I like to buy.  I had Boursin cheese which was interesting in the omelette, too.  This one was kind of chunky and I think the best ones I have made have more fresh herbs and bacon.    

Fried Eggs with Rosemary Ham

This kind of speaks for itself.  The Trader Joes Rosemary ham again.  I think I hit my max with it and have moved on now.  Still good.  Just had a little too much lately.  

Trail mix whole wheat rolls and granola

This is a clean out the cupboards type of day but they turned out great!  I was trying to get more room in the cupboard and had so many partially used bags of different nuts and dried fruits used for various recipes.  I cut up a fresh apple, added dried apricots, dried cranberries, pecans, cashews, sunflower seeds, almond slivers, cleaned…

Pasta in cream sauce with corn, broccoli and ham with chicken

Banana Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Pastrami Grilled Cheese Sandwich on Rye

This Levy’s Real Jewish Rye is a really cool bread I found here in NYC.  I am sure I will never find this in CA.  It was perfect for this pastrami sandwich I made for Henry.  I steamed the Trader Joes pastrami and melted the auricchio provolone inside with buttered bread.  Not low calorie but super yummy for Roger or…

Barramundi, homemade croutons with salad

I have been eating lunch at Sweet Green and loving their salads and realized that a good salad it dependent on the freshness of the greens and freshness of the dressing so I got really good greens from the farmers market at Union Square and made my own simple vinagrette.  The fish was from Trader Joes frozen.  It turned out…
