Oops & Goods

Running to Town Lake Trail and then to Whole Foods = Good

Arriving at Whole Foods with no list = Oops

The downtown Whole Foods is not only new-to-me-store-layout confusing, but it’s also a total circus.  Focusing on a new recipe was impossible.  Heading to the salad bar was boring.  And whatever I was going to do I needed to do fast because it was getting darker by the second and I’m super afraid of walking home in the dark.

I supermarket sweep-ed a bunch of random good-ish sounding things and headed home.  I couldn’t help but think of how unappetizing everything looked as I was putting everything away.  But without much choice, I marinated some cukes, poached an egg, talked to my mom on speaker, and transferred cottage cheese and tabbouleh onto a plate.

The tabbouleh, cottage cheese, and cukes actually went really well together.  I scooped and mixed until it was all gone, saving the perfectly poached egg on perfectly burnt toast for last.  On my to-do list?  Perfectly poaching eggs as much as possible and making my own tabbouleh.


  1. I have never had a poached egg, but it looks delicious. And I love tabbouleh, but I have never made it. I’d love to see a recipe. :) Hope the beginning of your week is going well!

    • I’ll be in Dallas for the rest of the week, but as soon as I get back to my kitchen I’ll be on a tabbouleh mission!

  2. That is a huge oops going in without a list – even with a list I walk out with $90123910293 worth of food I don’t really need (but sure as heck enjoy!)r

  3. I really need to learn how to poach an egg…you did a how-to, right?
