I think you already know how much I love my home and being home…hence the name of my blog! So today I decided to share with you my new kitchen. I absolutely love it. It is simple, pretty and so functional! All the things I love about “HOME”.
Home is a place not only of strong affections, but of entire unreserve; it is life’s undress rehearsal, its backroom, its dressing room. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe
First let me show you the ugly truth…or the before if you will:
View #2 of old news:
In with the new….design from MOI!
and from a different angle:
AND MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE:
I hope you enjoyed this little tour!
mmmm…look at that last picture…do you see that darn dog on the couch!??? 🙂
In order to reward myself and my new kitchen design (anything to reward myself, really) I decided to have a solo lunch in my new kitchen sitting at my new counter table. On the menu:
Note: this salad is for 1 selfish person (me) multiply as you see fit.
1/4 wedge radicchio
1 slice country bread
salt and pepper
1 slice bacon, pancetta or prosciutto roughly chopped
1-2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese (plus more for serving)
1 tablespoon olive oil
splash balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh basil roughly chopped
Preheat your grill.
Cut a radicchio into 4 quarters, keep 1 and put away the rest for another great day! Brush your radicchio wedge and bread with olive oil, add salt and pepper to all sides. Grill your radicchio and bread on all sides until nice and toasted. Do not leave this process unattended as it has a tendency to burn….quickly!
When ready set aside to cool. Meanwhile, in a small pan cook your bacon until crispy (or however you like it) Keep bacon in pan and add your egg, cook until no longer runny.
While your egg is cooking, chop your grilled radicchio and cube your bread. Put in a large bowl and add your 1 tablespoon olive oil, splash of balsamic (1/2 tablespoon I would guess) 1-2 tablespoons parmesan cheese salt and pepper. Toss well to coat everything. Put your salad on your plate and top with your fried egg. Sprinkle your basil and more parmesan cheese. DIG IN!

Peace and In with the New 🙂
Note: I know that I have 2 wedges in my picture…I was so worried I was going to burn one and not be able to enjoy my lunch. Needless to say I didn’t burn either one so I had both…yes I am a glutton!
