Sunday Brunch

I realized today that I could make a beautiful brunch, even if it is only for one. I am seeing food in a whole new light, and I really like it.

This is very simple- scrambled eggs, potatoes, and cheddar cheese with a side of citrus. I drizzled a teensy bit of really great basalmic vinegar over the top. That's it.

I made everything in rounds. The potatoes I sliced thin, seasoned with only salt and pepper, cooked in a little olive oil. The eggs are scrambled eggs, a teensy bit of sugar (blame Mitsuwa for that) and salt and pepper. I had some sliced cheddar that I made the same size as the egg rounds, just for fun.

Doing obento has really made me think more about my meals, which really is the natural progression for me, now that I think about it. After reading "French Women Don't Get Fat", I realized that my attitudes toward food in general were very American. And that means ugh.

I am almost gluten-free now, but not entirely. I think that if I do make it to Paris this year, I will abandon it because there is no way I can go all the way to Paris and not eat bread. I just won't do it. It would be like...sacrilegious.

It looked a lot better once the cheese melted down the sides- but my fork was faster than my camera, sorry. Maybe next time. ;)
