Hello - I hope you're still with me. I disappear sometimes. It's simply the reality of freelancing, homeschooling three young daughters (who will be going back to school in the Fall because Mama has had to sadly admit that I'm not the superwoman I thought I was, and I'm okay with that), and snuggling little ones who are absolutely knackered from perpetual allergy attacks. And I really haven't been cooking or baking too much over the last two weeks. Do you get like that? It ebbs and flows - I know the desire will return - but those rare moments when cooking is the last thing I want to do always scare the hell out of me. So let's ease back into it, shall we?
Last time I was in New York, my friend Marissa and I had brunch at Whitehall in the West Village; and there a dish was served that has graced my breakfast table often since. It's simple, and wildly delicious. Simply spread half of a ripe avocado onto a piece of toast, top with spring greens, a fried egg and your favorite artisan sea salt and pepper. This savory delight has also been a great way to get my girls to eat their greens!
Coming this week... another special Be My Guest from my some of my favorite New Yorkers and another simple breakfast... my favorite smoothie.
Have a lovely evening.
