Daily highlight #31: last night meets this morning
I woke up craving baked eggs, but was troubled by my promise to do something with last night's leftover rice (my J loves his rice). In the spirit of compromise, I delivered for brunch a pan of baked eggs over rice, with some peperjack cheese thrown in for good measure. The rice toasting at the outset, the way I always do when making fried rice, actually helped to develop a nice crust on the underside like what you'd find at the bottom of a good paella. The whole thing came together more beautifully than I could have hoped. This impromptu dish may just make more regular appearances on our table.
