A few weekends ago we went to New York city to visit my middle son and celebrate his birthday. New York is such a great city. And while I was glad at the end of three days to get home to my quiet suburban house, the city is just an energetic, bustling place, full of interesting people, sights, and of course great food. My son knows all the great little places to eat that the locals know. One morning we went to this great little ( little meaning really little!) restaurant for brunch called the Northern Spy Food Company Restaurant.
. I had this wonderful baked egg dish. It was two baked eggs served over kale salad with cheddar, sweet potato, almonds and percorino cheese. I wasn't sure if I would like that combination when I ordered it, but it was really delicious. I mean REALLY delicious. Just a small amount of sweet potatoes, and a tasteful amount of cheese. The New York price of $15 might make you gasp, but that's what things run in this city. It prompted me to make my own baked eggs in the oven when I got home. They were so good. Here is the recipe link for baked eggs.

I recently also tried Rosalie's zucchini fritter recipe. They were so, so good. I served them over lettuce and topped with some salsa and sour cream. These were really hard for me to control. I don't think I'll make them again for awhile until I get more self control!
Well that's all for now. Hope all is well with everyone. I also hope spring comes to the northeast soon. It has been very cold and windy here.
Thought for the day:
