One of the benefits of working at a bed and breakfast is the leftovers. After all the guests have had their fill (and if there’s any left), I get to taste and nibble. Mondays are always nice, because Adam, our other breakfast chef, preps the dishes for me, and he is just amazing with eggs. His frittatas just have so much more flavor than mine…I don’t think I use enough salt. This Monday, I had these wonderful things to try: a tomato frittata and a strawberry-cream cheese turnover. Delectable. (I have to say that this photo was taken with my BRAND NEW digital camera! It’s an Olympus Stylus 800, and it’s fabulous.)
Leftovers of course can also be a bad thing. Eating B&B food every day is not the healthiest way to go. Especially when I’m in charge of baking cookies, too…and I always have to taste one. So that means one serving of egg-cheese-cream (the savory dish), one of pastry-fruit-sugar-cream (the sweet dish), and one of butter-sugar-eggs (the cookie). Hmmm. Maybe I should start bringing my own mid-morning snack.
Last night we had a crafty-girl gathering, which was so much fun. I didn’t get much stitching done…there was too much to talk about and too much to eat! One of the girls, Nicole, has this amazing boyfriend named Raymond who volunteered to cook for all of us…vegetable steamed buns, veggie dim sum, veggie sushi, unagi, edamame…I think we all decided we’d take him home for a few days to teach our husbands his sushi-skills. We’re trying to come up with a name for our group…Justin thought Girly-Made might be fun. Any suggestions?
As today is International Thank-You Day, I’d like to thank all of you out there who stop by to read my silly thoughts. I don’t know how many of you there are, but I thank each one of you! Thanks for commenting, for blogrolling, and for visiting. And one more thank you…to my wonderful husband, who set up this whole blog thing for me. Happy Wednesday!
