Sometimes it IS about the breakfast

Veggie print-making with the Summer Reading kids put me in the mood for fresh produce shopping, and I trooped home with peppers, zucchini, cucumber, tomatoes, cabbage, plums, strawberries, and watermelons. All pretty, healthy, and pricey when I go overboard. That's the trouble with cooking for one. Eating right can become a race against the clock before it all spoils.  One day the plum is too hard to bite, and the next day it's oozing and growing mold.
Rule #1 Do not shop when you are hungry.
Rule #2 Don't shop when you are under the influence of art.

Breakfast this morning was leftover rice fried with zucchini, tomatoes, garlic, and orange pepper. Stirred in a beaten egg. Melted pepper jack cheese on top. Garnished with avocado and Greek yogurt. It wasn't very pretty, but it tasted good and used some of those veggies.

sounds delicious! I always overshop when the food is fresh and local, then I overeat!
