What is for breakfast ? Good morning everyone! I’m going to try once more to show you the first salad that tempted me. For some reason, WP (Word Press) and I were not in sync when I wanted to post this. So here goes..
It worked! good. This recipe was found on foodandwine.com I am going to add hard boiled eggs, after all it will be breakfast. =^_^= I meant to only use this one picture of food, but when I saw all the wonderful ideas using anchovies, I wanted to share them. I do recognize that there are a lot of people who do not enjoy anchovies but then, vive la difference!
Today the meditation was about beginning each new day with a renewed sense of appreciation. I looked at my desk and found a package from the anchovies I brought back from my trip to the States the other day. Hmm yum, anchovies with capers in pure olive oil, usually I get the little fillets and use them to season my cooking and for a special treat I will do them with cloves of fresh garlic and toss that over pasta with hot chilies …(see recipe below) That got my morning thoughts interested in satisfying my taste bud. I did my best to ignore Canaille’s big brown eyes looking up at me expectantly, (Canaille is our Porti, Portuguese Water Dog) it didn’t work, mindful of her empty tummy I couldn’t very well keep teasing mine with the sight and possibility of food, and not respond to my ‘baby”. so rest easy, I took time to feed the dogs.
Such is life isn’t it, we start out with good intentions, but often our thoughts are diverted, or our attention, and we need to pause and do something else. But with a purpose, if we are dedicated to the task at hand, we finish what we started, we return to our project and we pick up where we left off. The key to achieving something is to stick to it. Don’t give up! Keep at it until you’ve accomplished what you started.
Now, I’ve posted some goodies for you to enjoy, maybe you’ll be tempted too. For now, I bid you a good day, I’m off to start my day, and decide just what I will delight my taste buds with on this beautiful sunny Sunday! Blessings all.. Oyashikiri
Tomatoes with Anchovy Dressing Found on Martha Stewart.com -Martha is one of my favourite people – she is a survivor!
Grilled Potato Salad for lunch or dinner hmmmm… Grill Yukon gold potato halves and combine with a mixture of tomatoes, capers, oregano, olives, and anchovies for a Mediterranean-style potato side dish. (taken from Pinterest this morning)
This dear readers is one of my all time favourite comfort dishes. Garlic Anchovy pasta. I’ve been making it for years. I found a recipe this morning while browsing the photo credit was to Helen Rosner. I copied the receipt since if you want to try and do it, it will be helpful, I myself just wing it according to my wants and taste buds at that moment. I do use the hot chillies…yum Yup this will be a for sure later today!!! I know I know, it will be a serving for one, you’ll get something else. (Hubby does not like anchovies) =^_^=
