Tuesday

Breakfast:
Two Poached Eggs
Flaxseed Muffin
Cup of Coffee w/Coconut Milk and Vanilla Extract


(My perfectly poached eggs)

*Tip: I love these little egg poachers, from Sur la Table. My mom will be so proud...after years of doing the "Mad Vortex" (this crazy caulrdon of simmering water, stirred into a frenzy...yeah, crazy!), I finally have my own little egg poachers. I only bought the two, so I could test them out...I'm sold! They're cute AND functional!

Here's how you do it:
In a shallow pan, fitted with a lid, bring water (enough to reach 1/3-1/2 of the way up the sides of the poacher cups) to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.Crack eggs into the poacher cups and set the cups into the simmering water. Cover the pan with a lid (clear is nice, so you can watch the cooking process) and cook for 5-7 minutes, depending on your desired doneness (I cooked mine 5 minutes, for a runny yolk). Remove the poacher cups from the pan and, using a soup spoon, scoop out your eggs. Perfect!

*To lessen the clean-up time, you can rub the poacher cups with a dot of EVOO. Not necessary, but helpful.
