The other day while cruising around on Flickr I came across these photos from one of my contacts. As some of you know I have been doing a cleanse since the first of the year. I've been eating veggies and fruit. Fruit and veggies. An occasional egg. More veggies and fruit...
It is safe to say that I am more than little tired of veggies and fruit. I feel fantastic, however, so it has been well worth it. My energy is through the roof and all my usual food allergy problems have gone away. BUT, I want chicken in the worst way. So, at this very moment I have a whole chicken slow cooking away in my new crock pot AND I have rosemary bread baking in my bread machine. The smell in my house is MAKING ME CRAZY. I am drooling (seriously) as I wait for the chicken to be done (30 more minutes!!!!).
Back to the above photos. It was love at first sight. I mean.... a bread "boat" filled with some sort of crumbly cheese topped with an EGG!!! Holy crap, I need to know how to make this!!! (I am fairly certain that everything tastes better with an egg placed on top and I actually seek out foods that have eggs on top. I've been thinking about starting a support group for other "Eggs on Top" enthusiasts but I fear I might be the only member.) Anyhoo, I asked the woman who made this creation what it is called and she replied "Ajarian khachapuri." It's a Georgian dish. I will make this soon. I must.
OK, I had to stop and eat and let me tell you.... the chicken and the bread were awesome. Just what I needed. I found the chicken recipe on Cathie Filian's blog and it couldn't be any easier or delicious. Not only do you end up with a perfectly cooked, tender chicken but then you can make stock right in the same pot. Love that! The rosemary bread recipe came via my friends Ken and Don who found it here. I just ate half the loaf. It's that good.
Soooo, I'm done chatting about food. I got my fix and I feel satisfied. Time for tea, some snuggling with the bunnies and sleep, sleep, sleep. :)
