Post-Halloween Sunday Brunch

Happy November!

I carved one of my pumpkins last night, and this morning, I let it borrow my devil horns since the festivities are over, and I no longer need them:

Halloween Punkin'

For breakfast, I had two whole scrambled eggs, half a whole wheat bagel topped with real, salted butter, and an array of fresh, chopped veggies sauteed in extra virgin olive oil:  Garlic, red bell peppers, spinach, grape tomatoes, scallions, and mushrooms.  I tossed a sprinkle of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper over them, and they came out piping hot and full of simple but lively flavors.   I love veggies at breakfast!

As for the butter … I’ve never been able to, nor seen a convincing reason to, make the switch to margarine.  I don’t eat butter at every meal, or every day, but when I want buttered toast or a buttered bagel, only the real thing will do.

Sunday Brunch

My goal for this afternoon is to run or bike. The weather is downright priceless today, so it shouldn’t be hard to get outside … if I can get away from the deadly lure the couch + football, that is!
