Sunny Breakfast

My morning started with Willow walking at 5:55 am. She was up for almost an hour and a half from 1:20. So I’m a little tired from a rough night.  She wouldn’t settle even after feeding her.  

Now she’s asleep on me in the Moby and I’m hoping she’ll sleep for a couple of hours.  I’ve sent the kids and Michael grocery shopping so I can get some quiet time to nap her. 

Every so often, I can hear her sniffling as she sleeps. She’s still congested but is sleeping much better during the first part of the night. She also has been devouring her cereal when I feed her.  Her preference is plain. 

At 6:50 am I hear Zander and Violet’s door open and footsteps into the bathroom.  They’re up.  In my mind I think, I might as well be.  And then the memory of Aroma’s quinoa breakfast salad popped came back.  

I take Willow down and feed her oatmeal cereal while I bake the bacon in the oven. I also assemble ingredients I have lying around in the fridge. Here’s what I came up with. 

Of course, you can’t forget the soft boiled egg of the dressing. The egg is a 6-minute egg.  As for the dressing, it’s my version of the delicious but pricey Wafu dressing. If anyone knows me, I like to think, “hey, I can make that!”.

So I looked up the ingredients for the dressing and just played around to get the right taste.  I never measure so it’s hard to say how much. I know, it’s one my flaws.  Oh well. 

So, here are the ingredients in my version of Wafu. It’s essentially a sesame seed paste dressing. So you can guess, tahini is the main ingredient. 


Ingredients: tahini, rice vinegar, sugar, salt, mayonnaise

The mayonnaise is what makes the dressing smooth and creamy. I’ve made a big bottle and now it’s almost done.  It’s so delicious and it goes well with a lot of food. 

The beets were sous vide with my Anova precision cooker I got for Mother’s Day. They cooked for about 2-3 hrs and came out tender and sweet. 

What’s your favourite homemade salad dressing?

Happy cooking. 

And so it begins…


Today, I’m home mostly on my own except this morning when we went to Violet’s Shabbat at school.  Willow is playing in her excersaucer while I work. I’m taking off some kitchen cabinet doors today.
