As soon as I jump out of bed in the morning I immediately make my bed.  If nothing else in the day gets done, at least I feel like I got one thing accomplished. This small gesture sets the tone for the day and I appreciate walking into a clean tidy room. Next I run straight for the coffee. There is no talking to me unless I have my coffee. Can you relate? Then I make and prepare any snacks and granola bars for the next few days. This way there are healthy non processed easy-to-grab foods for the kids and I. And when I say kids, that does include my husband, wink! wink!

Sauteed Asparagus and Leeks Topped With Fried Egg

Asparagus enriched with leeks and wholesome eggs - a great alternative for an inexpensive and healthy vegetarian brunch or dinner.

Fried Eggs and Asparagus 

The most efficient structure for dinner is to use your time efficiently. Making whole dishes or components in advance whenever possible. But last week when dinner time rolled around I was completely clueless as to what to make. I opened the refrigerator to find that all that starred me in the eyes was eggs, potatoes and fresh seasonal asparagus. My first reaction was Boring! until we fancied it up on the frying pan. We made tender-crisp asparagus with sauteed leeks topped with fried eggs and dusted with flavorful Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
