The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

Oh, hi.  Remember me?  I used to make food and photograph it and post it here.  And then October came and then I just took a little break from doing such things.  When life gets busy, you just ride the wave, right?  Take it all in, one day at a time.  Just live life.  That’s what I’ve been doing.

I actually hate using the word “busy” because I think our society has an inflated view of what busy really means.  So we will just say that my hands have not been idle lately.  I’ve been driving through the gorgeous fall-colored hills of Missouri.  My job in  picks up this time of year with open enrollment meetings.  Paul did a solo hike in the Ozark Mountains; we have soaked up some quality time with friends and family, cooked dinner together in our newly face-lifted kitchen and while I have missed blogging, the break was much needed.

The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

Sometimes you just need a breather to get things going again and I’m pretty excited to be back today because we are celebrating a special lady in the blogging world.  You probably know Jessica of How Sweet Eats, and you probably know that she is expecting her first little one in a couple of weeks and to celebrate, tons of her blogging pals have banded together today to throw a shower devoted to outrageous food.  I love Jessica’s recipes as much as the next person.  But even more I love her creativity, her enthusiasm, her passion and her drive, and the way she conveys things online.

So to celebrate, I made a sandwich, of course.  The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich, to be exact.  It has shredded Gruyere cheese, Canadian bacon, a Parmesan-fried egg and honey-sriracha mayo.  And I could eat this one for breakfast lunch or dinner!
