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!


  1. Looks fantastic! My daughter can be picky sometimes too... and usually it's about stuff I love. More for me!

    Wishing you a lovely day.

  2. Too funny, but honestly I'd like the bacon better as well. Everything goes well with bacon!

  3. She gave it a try and that is the important part.

  4. Hurray for pretty food! How funny that bacon wins out in the end. But, who doesn't love bacon?

  5. They look good! It makes you laugh some of the things they come out with. my little girl insisted on smelling the flour for a cake the other day as she always smells flowers!
