Breakfast of Champions


Good Morning Friends!  You can usually find me on any given morning at our local Einstein’s Bagel shop with my husband.  We enjoy going for a bagel and coffee each morning to get our day started.  Dennis always says, this assures us we are on a date each and every day.  We can chat about what our day is going to bring, what we need to accomplish, and sometimes our dreams for the future.  I love going to Einstein’s because, not only do I get a chance to just hang out with Dennis before he heads to work, but we also run into friends there.  Sometimes every day!  Cristina and Uli are our friends from softball.  They enjoy going to Einstein’s almost every morning, just like us.  Then, there are the friends we’ve made at Einstein’s.  We get to see Ty several mornings a week.  He is such a nice gentleman and we enjoy chatting with him, too, when we see him.  Sometimes, Ty brings his adorable Mom, Sue. It is always a pleasure to see Sue as well.

This morning, however, I really wanted to get a few things done at home before I meet my friend, Ethel, at the park for our weekly walk.  I decided I’d make myself eggs, over easy.  I love pepper and use far more pepper than salt, on my own food.  I did add a bit of sea salt on the eggs while cooking them.  I grew up with my Dad always reminding us to “put down the salt shaker, you don’t need extra salt”.  I remember this and to this day, don’t add table salt to my food.  I do cook with kosher salt every day though.  I also top eggs with with Chia and Flax Seed Whole Grain toast topped with organic raw coconut butter and one slice of bacon.  I enjoyed this with a cup of decaf coffee and I now feel ready to face the day.  I’m surely looking forward to my walk with my dear friend.  As Ethel calls herself “your favorite Latin friend”.  She is right, she is my favorite Latin friend.  If you knew Ethel, you’d say she is your favorite Latin friend too.

Have a lovely day, everyone!

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
