It's easy. Have a better day. Eat breakfast! Duh, guys.
The other morning I woke up, hungry. It's natural after a full 8 hours (if I'm lucky) of slumber and consequent fasting. Unlike the previous few rainy days, the birds were chirping and the beautiful morning sun was sneaking in under the blinds. I felt optimistic! I felt well-rested! And still, hungry.
What happened next was a well-choreographed dance: perfectly timed hard boiled egg, whole-grain toast broiled in the oven (no toaster), and Stumptown coffee brewing in the coffeemaker. The morning soundtrack: Blitzen Trapper (new favorite band, check them out).
Now, this is barely a recipe. It's more an experience I want everyone to have. A happy shiny morning with a happy shiny breakfast and hopefully, a happy shiny day ahead. I'll just give you the method I used to boil my egg, that's about all there is to give!
Boiled Egg on Toast
1 slice toast
salt and pepper
Place egg in smallish pot. Cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil, let boil for 1 minute. Cut the heat, cover and let sit for about 9 minutes.
Refill pot with cold water. When egg is not too scorching to touch, crack it and peel. Slice and tenderly place on toast (which I assume you have been toasting during this boiling period). Season with salt and pepper.
Chomp and get on with your day!
