Whoa, Chef

in All Posts

I woke up to the Husband cookin’ this insane creation.  Not sure what came over him, but this was good (and required a lot of effort for a sleepy Monday morning!).


He sliced and grilled tempeh and added it to a ‘breakfast salad’ of scrambled egg, goat cheese, and green apple. 


Hubba, hubba.  Nothing quite like a man who can cook. 



It’s looking dreary out there…


But I have a sneaking suspicion that today will be a very, very good day.  Or I’m going to try to make it that way!

Thought of the Day:


"We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? … And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.” – Steve Jobs

  • Sarah January 9, 2012, 8:21 am

    That breakfast looks GREAT! I may need to recreate that this morning 🙂

  • Allison January 9, 2012, 8:25 am

    Such a great quote from Steve Jobs! Def true whether we like it or not and a fabulous reminder to live every day to the fullest 😀 BTW, a man in the kitchen is always a plus [especially if the food looks beautiful and tastes delic]!

    It’s dreary here too…rainy and in the 50’s. Bleh. But days like this make me more productive at work because I don’t wish to be outside so I tend to not resent the fact that I am working inside all day. So here’s to a productive and successful working Monday!

  • Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous January 9, 2012, 9:02 am

    I love anything with goat cheese!

  • Khushboo January 9, 2012, 9:09 am

    A guy who can cook on a Monday is one thing but on a Monday morning- now that’s something!

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb January 9, 2012, 9:14 am

    impressive! looks delicious… i would never think of tempeh or salad for breakfast, but this sounds fab!

  • Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon January 9, 2012, 9:29 am

    That looks delicious!! A breakfast salad! I’ve never seen such a creation before! What a wonderful husband you have 🙂

  • Sarah January 9, 2012, 9:44 am

    Awesome breakfast! Your hubby gets props for that one!

  • Emily January 9, 2012, 9:50 am

    Looks like a gorgeous day, a little gloomy, but BEAUTIFUL.

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 9, 2012, 10:07 am

    I love that you start the day thinking that you are going to make it a good day. That’s much more proactive than my passive approach to a day, I should think that way more!

  • Paige @ Running Around Normal January 9, 2012, 10:31 am

    That was so sweet of the husband! 🙂 I think that’s the perfect way to start the week.

  • Lindsay @ Salt, Sun & Sanity January 9, 2012, 10:35 am

    You are a very lucky lady 🙂 That breakfast looks amazing! I’m a vegetarian, and believe it or not I’ve never experimented with tempeh- how do you prepare it?

  • Sarah January 9, 2012, 11:11 am

    That sounds much more yummy than my sad bowl of oats this morning!

  • Chelsea January 9, 2012, 12:00 pm

    It’s dreary where I live as well. It’s the kind of day where I just slept in till 1030am *whoops*

  • Sarah@The Flying ONION January 9, 2012, 12:16 pm

    The breakfast looks amazing as do the nature shots! What a wonderful morning to wake up to! 😀

  • Allie January 9, 2012, 12:27 pm

    Thanks for the quote. I needed that on a day like today.

  • Jasper January 9, 2012, 12:52 pm

  • Lexi @ Cura Personalis Foodie January 9, 2012, 1:27 pm

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife January 9, 2012, 1:30 pm

    I’m trying my best to live that way!

  • Yolie @ Practising Wellness January 9, 2012, 2:40 pm

    So nice of the Husband to cook for you – what a star! And what a lovely, refreshing meal! 😀 Hope your day IS wonderful! <3 xyx

  • Amber K January 9, 2012, 2:49 pm

    What a great hubby! My husband can cook in the sense that he can follow a recipe, which is the same as me. We both wish we were good at just creating things.

  • TeenyLittleSuperChef January 9, 2012, 8:17 pm

    Hooray for husbands who cook! Mine isn’t quite the culinary expert and I’m lucky if he can boil pasta without making it a mushy mess. Oh well, he’s got many other talents so I guess I shouldn’t focus to much on his lack of skills in this area. I heart tempeh. What brand do you and the hubs typically buy?

  • Greg January 9, 2012, 8:56 pm

    Eating salads for breakfast is great. It’s also nice to add dried fruit and nuts to them. I add a lot of shredded veggies to egg white omelets, too. Why not?

  • Jen January 10, 2012, 12:21 am

    Wow…impressive! You picked a good one (as did he). 🙂
