Breakfast in bed

Jan brought me breakfast in bed, and what I loved even more than waking up to the smell of bacon cooking and the amazing fruit and breakfast sandwich he prepared, was the fact that, unbeknownst to me, he photographed the plate before serving it to me. The next day, he asked me if I had looked through the pictures on my camera. I hadn’t, and there it was again for me to enjoy.

I was worrying that my increased photographing of our meals and their preparation was bugging him. After all, I do sometimes make him stop what he’s doing so I can adjust the light and arrange some of the elements in the background of the picture. Turns out, he just wanted to get in on the action as well. Photo by Jan.

Not your average egg McMuffin

Thin bun egg McMuffinThe “thin buns” bought last week have been put to a few good uses. Last week, when I was craving a cheeseburger, Jan and I went to the store for some ingredients. Often we buy two rolls from the supermarket bakery since we hardly have a need for a six-pack, but they were out, so I went to look through the bread aisle. I’d seen the thin buns before and wanted to try them, especially since each bun is 100 calories, compared to the 250+ calories of the regular hamburger buns. Less bun equals more bacon in my mind. There were a few varieties, we tried EarthGrains’ 100 % Whole Wheat, which were a hit with American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and of course, bacon.

This morning we cooked bacon and eggs, placed them on the bun, topped it with sharp cheddar cheese and put it in the toaster oven. Excellent! I will be finding more uses for the thin buns.
