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.
