Saturday breakfast fare

Ruby and I woke up at 8:00 this morning to find that Jude had already been up for a few hours working in the kitchen and getting ready for work. When I got out of the shower, I had this breakfast waiting for me at the table. Holding an almost-seventh-month-old (and wiping her down after her grabby paws get a hold of your jelly toast) while eating is difficult, but this breakfast was yummy nonetheless.

This is a pretty darn complete breakfast that is a lovely way to start my Saturday and give me the energy I'm going to need to trudge through the snow storm today to bring Ruby to music class. Two sunny-side-up fried eggs from Knoll Crest small farm in Merrimack, NH. A small lightly dressed salad and a half of an avocado seasoned with salt and pepper and a hint of dressing. Two pieces of toast with hibiscus jam that our friend Adam brought us as a gift from Senegal. All this finished off with a glass of juice (half orange-half carrot, which is a great combination that Jude started making after spending five weeks traveling through Mexico studying their markets and foods and falling in love with this juice blend that you could buy fresh on the street).

Jude was long gone by the time Ruby allowed me to finish my breakfast, but she is now napping and I am feeling very well-satiated. Thanks, Jude.
