I was inspired lately, while in the beautiful city of San Francisco, to eat what I truly love. All day long. No more scrambled eggs in the morning (gag) because they are high in protein and they'll get you through to lunch, blah, blah, blah. Instead I've been nibbling on a hunk of bread and some good cheese.
I've been choking down breakfast foods with my coffee most mornings for years and I'm not sure why.
We had this salad at the Ferry Building at a place that bases their menu on what the local farms have to offer. The food was de.lish.ous. And simple, which is so freaking satisfying it made me want to hug our waiter. There are 3 ingredients in this salad plus a vinaigrette that takes 2 seconds to throw together. I've been eating it for breakfast since I've been home.
