the finer things
Sometimes I feel like eating a decadent breakfast, and the stars align just so, and I'm able to spend more than 10 minutes at a time in the kitchen preparing something luxurious to eat.
I recently had just that kind of morning. So, crab cake (or in our case, leftover white fish and salmon from dinners earlier in the week) benedict it was! The only thing missing was a nicely toasted and buttered English muffin, but there was no time for baking - best to get on with the eating part anyway.
The beauty of them won over my little girl, who pointed to the prettiest one on the platter and asked if she could have it. I was thrilled, and immediately thought of how I could boast about my 2 year old's refined palate. Which is to say that she took one bite, declared it, "kinda yucky," and proceeded to eat the entire plate of bacon instead. So be it. More for me until she comes to her senses!
