Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
It was the egg. (Dinosaurs, the ancestors of the chicken, and many other animals layed eggs.)
This morning, I got up late (as usual), saw this beautiful snowy scene outside, and perused two generous online invitations to brunch this morning. Hmm, shower, dress, find the shovel, … drive the 4×4 to one of these restaurants or just sit my ass on the couch? Guess which one won.
For this breakfast I boiled a couple fresh jalapenos, whipped up some scrambled eggs, stirred in some chipotle-seasoned pulled chicken; bell pepper and jalapeno strips (leftover from yesterday’s fajitas); and shredded cheddar. Then I assembled the nachos on a plate with blue corn tortilla chips, topped with a pasilla salsa (the first I opened from the summertime canning) and a tender jalapeno.
A pleasant, if not lonely, breakfast on this beautiful wintery morning.
I even eased into the season with some holiday music.
I hope my friends fared as well with their brunches.
Looks like my kind of breakfast! I made nachos for dinner. :-)
Ah, a fellow connoisseur of haute cuisine… :)
Yum! I could definitely eat breakfast like that.
I’m super jealous of your snow. It’s been warm here, which I’m trying to enjoy…. it just feels so wrong!
Hi Pami! Ya, the snow definitely helps… it wasn’t until then that I played my first holiday tunes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwTAFdflAG8
The other day I was at a chinese restaurant for lunch and said to a friend that I needed at least another month before Christmas. At the end of the meal, my fortune happened to read, “Get in the spirit of the time,” and about a minute later they gave us a christmas gift certificate, since I’m there about once a week. I’m not superstitious, but it was a help to get in the spirit. :)
I’d say that was the Universe’s way of pushing you in the right direction.
I’m not a hugely superstitious person, but sometimes you can’t ignore the signs ;)
I’m a skeptic, so I’m considering that our server conspired by “fixing” the fortune cookie, but I appreciate the sentiment, nonetheless.
Once you have a ridiculously tumultuous life experience brought about by following a supposed sign from the universe, you think twice. If one stick to signs involving food, it’s probably mostly harmless. :)
I guess I’m still young and untainted by bad life experiences ;)
Skepticism is cool… c’mon, all the kids are doin’ it.
I always get “stick with your wife”
Good one, Matthew. :)
That’s one of my favorite Simpsons references. (I didn’t even need the video.)
But I watched the video now…
The name of the restaurant is inspired. I didn’t remember that part. :)
