Food is an incredible substance. It will nourish, perfect creativity, interview your ideals, and fill your belly.
Hunger is also incredible, it will develop appreciation. For the simple, for the nutritious, for the here and now.
Appetite is amazing, but it is tricky. It is slick, and glossy and choosy. It will blindside you into just eating, when you should be satisfying your hunger.
Appetite asks, "what do I want?".
Hunger asks, "what will I eat?"
Hunger is much easier on a cook and the entire household.
It is practiced in our home.
We have a large stock of foods in the dry goods pantry, in the freezer and the refrigerator. From this we cook, dine and satisfy hunger. When we enter the kitchen to prepare a meal, the question asked is, "So what do we have?" and for this reason we do not employ a weekly meal plan. Instead we see what we have, and use what we have, and from there, we enjoy what we eat.
By the time Friday rolls around, an easy dinner is in fact the preferred choice for the evenings meal. This is where the title Add a fried egg and some toast comes into play. No matter what you have, a fried egg and some toast will always round out the meal. This gratin proved the point and made for a delicious and lovely meal. And I know, we will do this again (because we have done this in the past)......
|Friday Night Special, put an egg on it!|
Friday Night Special
by the seat of my pants
serves the hungry
Leftover Vegetable Gratin, or other vegetable of choice
Whole Grain Bread
Salt & Pepper
Jam and Mustard, if desired
Warm the Gratin, set aside.
Slice whole grain bread, begin toasting.
While bread is toasting, fry an egg (or 2) for each person.
Butter the toast.
Top the Gratin with a fried egg, place buttered toast on each plate.
Serve this forth, offering jam for the toast and possibly a bit of mustard for the eggs. It really is delicious.
