Girl’s night in

Keith has an end of season paddle tennis event tonight.  That meant Samantha and I were on our own.  The solution – bacon and eggs.  In her case the eggs were poached, in my case it was shad roe – the egg sac from the female shad.  Shad roe season is winding down, the seafood man said maybe one more week.  I cooked the bacon and then sautéed my shad roe in a little bit of the bacon grease while I poached Samantha’s eggs.  I was going to have asparagus but I’m battling a cold so laziness won out and I bought some brussels sprouts with lemon zest from prepared foods at Graul’s.  Samantha only eats the yolk of her poached eggs and somehow tonight I managed to cook her eggs in such a way that the yolk of one of them lifted out of the white in one piece.  Sadly, I have no idea how I did that, making it hard to replicate.  Here she is enjoying her dinner with each element (eggs, bacon and toast) plated separately.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
