Remember when I baked a cake for the birthday family dinner I hosted, but completely forgot about FoodFash’s 3rd birthday? Well I decided to make up for that oversight by getting some new blog props and spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
I had planned on finding a frame at Hobby Lobby, painting it gold, chalkboard painting something to place behind the frame, and having another wonderfully homemade prop. Thankfully, Hobby Lobby wasn’t the first stop of my trip because I found a super cool, super cheap chalkboard at Home Goods that totally hit the blog spot. I also bought a few new plates, bowls, and placemats. Annnddd… the flatware I ordered from Anthropologie should arrive tomorrow. 2013 is already shaping up to be a better blogging year!
And to balance out all the dough and sweet that’s been happening lately, I thought a veggie-filled omelet would be the way to go. The asparagus at central market just happened to be the itsy, bitsy, baby kind (the kind I love). And then I picked up some chives because chives just make everything better. I added a bit of goat cheese, a pinch of sea salt, and a dash of white pepper. When it all came together it was a little breakfast magic.
Other than being completely satisfying and tasty, adding asparagus to an omelet just makes you feel good. A green omelet sets the tone for a more veggie-filled day, perhaps a day with more water drinking, a little yoga sesh, and a few more smiles than usual.
