It might seem that eating is all we do here! It is the biggest part of our budget, for sure; 10 people eat a lot. With little kids, we need to make three square meals a day. Not everyone takes part in all the meals, but we mostly eat together.
And breakfast mostly involves eggs. Fried eggs, scrambled eggs, eggs in pancake batter with eggs on top. Eggs. We get about half of our eggs from Inishoge Farm (http://www.inishoge.ca/), and half from whichever farm gate we happen to be driving past (or The Horrible, AKA the grocery store).
When I was a kid, my father used to make Eggs Ranchero: toast, with salsa on top, a poached egg on that, and melted cheddar on top of that. Delicious! In 2005, Jeremy and I went to Japan to travel and WWOOF (www.wwoof.net), and I came home with what we termed a ‘rice hole’; if a meal didn’t include rice, I didn’t feel full. I found all kinds of ways to include rice, including Modified Eggs Ranchero.
Eggs, on top of salsa and rice, with cheese melted on top. Even though it does’t have any Braggs sauce or tahini, I labeled it West Coast Hippie (WCH) Style. That’s mostly tongue in cheek, due to the short-grain brown rice and locally-sourced ingredients. Sometimes I add homemade nettle gomaishio, for extra WCH++. Delicious!
