Today I ate my feelings
I have been dreaming of a perfect mcdonalds breakfast for 6 months. Since I started working at the bakery I have dreamed of me leaving early for work and getting an egg mcmuffin before work. It’s never happened. Till today. And today, was tasty
Tomato, basil, goat cheese and béchamel Danish from Patisserie 27
I had the yogurt already. The mini muffin top was courtesy of extra batter =D
We can find happiness in the oddest of places. I often find mine at the bottom of a bag.
Munch in a rush
It was late. I was hungry. I had 3 eggs.
(click the title)
I wanted eggs benedict. There was a problem though-I had never poached an egg (gasp) or made hollandaise (don’t judge i’ve never said i was a chef)
11:00pm- Google to rescue.
11:02pm- There are a lot of egg recipes
I decided to head back to my fridge to see what else I had and I found veggies and Polenta
11:10pm- Back to google where I found this gem: http://alextcooks.com/recipes/momofuku-510-eggs-with-crispy-polenta-arugula/
David Chang (and AlexTcooks) to the recipe/rescue!
At this point I stopped looking at the clock and focused on the matter at hand-Food
1. Hollandaise -
I still wanted it. Using 1 of the valuable eggs I separated the yolk from the white. In a heat safe small bowl started whisking- while my small pot of water was simmering away. Added a small teaspoon? (i don’t know how much to be honest) of water continued whisking and then some lemon juice.
over the pot the bowl went as I added butter till it looked and felt…right..
off the bowl came added salt and cayenne
and then this:
for my first hollandaise not to shabby
2.Soft Boiled Eggs
Using the recipe online I soft boiled my eggs for 5 minutes and 10 seconds ( no really, look at the link it says 5 minutes and 10 seconds.) Put them into ice water for 2 minutes and so and then
gently cracked them.
this was the first egg:
Instead of getting sad, I became more determined ( I was still hungry) -
3. Everything else
On the stove went my polenta while the final egg sat a little in the water (i actually put it back and forth twice in hopes of shocking the egg part i wanted from the shell)
I cut up my veggies- cracked my egg gently this time and had this
I was going to add the hollandaise to the photo - but like i mentioned a few times- i was hungry and was starting to get frustrated with the light in house
so i ate it.
3 eggs- 1 dream
and a very happy me.
