Ginger-Soy Asparagus with Poached Eggs & Wasabi Soy Almonds

Kick your Sunday off right friends.

For me, that means leaving for a week-long vacation with my manfriend. We’re heading up north for a week of relaxation, which is going to involve camping, (lots of) eating and exploring the pristine coastline of Lake Michigan. I’m turning off my phone and forgetting all about work and taking these next seven days to do as little as humanly possible (minus reading trashy magazines).

What are YOU up to today? I hope it involves cooking since I seem to be seriously lacking in that department lately. The only meals I seem to make are bagels topped with eggs + Frank’s Red Hot and this dish, which I’ve made four times. It’s simple. Roast a big bunch of asparagus in a drizzle of olive oil, tablespoon of soy sauce, teaspoon freshly grated ginger and a pinch of salt + pepper. Top with two poached eggs and crushed Blue Diamond wasabi + soy sauce almonds.

Eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner and preferably with good reading material. May I suggest a few?

A must-read: “How to Escape the Cult of Busy.” A good follow-up from “The Busy Trap.”

I wrote a special recipe for all you gents out there on my guest post over at Style Girlfriend.

AhemPeach, Brie + Dark Chocolate S’mores. And it’s finally peach season too, so jump on it.

Zucchini Coconut Noodles that are both vegan and gluten-free.

White Beans and Fresh Herbs are definitely going to be a staple in my house. On bread, in salad, made into burgers, pureed to hummus, you get the picture.

I started the new Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black. All I have to say is WATCH IT.

If you are having a bad day and are in need of a pick-me-up, this is it. And so is this. Trust me.

With that, I’m grabbing my hiking shoes, swimsuit, sleeping bag, camera, a case of PBR, two books, road trip snacks and a big bottle of SPF, and we are outta here.

Make it a good week, friends.
