Yesterday morning Terry and I went on a breakfast date and it was deeee-licious. Our place of choice was my very favorite spot in town, The Yolk. They offer really creative dishes that range from healthy to indulgent to traditional to innovative.
My favorite meal here (and probably in all town), is the Pennell Barn Hash. The hash is a mix of whatever local veggies they have on hand. Today it was golden beets, kale, red kuri squash (my first time trying that one), and fingerling potatoes. The dish is topped two runny yolk eggs and served with hearty toast.
Terry went the traditional route with the creamiest grits, eggs, bacon, and toast. It was served in the cutest little skillet!
Another delicious meal I had was cooked by me and it was so simple: 1 egg + 1 egg white omelet with sauteed chopped spinach and zucchini. I had a veggie patty on the side. I haven’t bought anything like them in a while, but when I saw Aldi had put out a new kind, I wanted to give it a try! It’s not high in protein (only 5 grams), but it was sure tasty!
I also discovered scorched peanut butter when I toasted this slice of baked pumpkin oatmeal with the peanut butter on top. I actually found the taste rather pleasant and plan to do it again soon!
