The specks are pepper and basil and the eggs taste like they were poached. It's a bit of a cheat, but it is fast.
I don't know what it is about being stuck in the house on snowy days, but I want to cook and eat.
So, I gave in and since I had buttermilk to use up I made buttermilk pancakes. Very good.
Then I got the pot roast ready and cooking on the wood stove. This is very easy cooking and food really does taste better cooked on the wood stove than on gas. Go figure.
And I'm going to put a link to another blog Life In Japan because he has written about his experiences everyday since the earthquake and I found it very interesting to read Tanya's and this blog and learn first hand how the people in Japan are dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake through their eyes instead of the sensationalized media accounts.
