fried egg salad don
Tonight, I had a last minute lesson, so by the time I came home it was almost 8pm. I wanted something, quick and easy for dinner. I was inspired by La tartine gourmande's blog post about having a meal in one dish and Messy Cucina's blog post about having fried egg sandwiches. I decided that my dinner tonight would be a fried egg salad-don. Don is short for donburi which means "deep bowl". I put some rice at the bottom, then put some lettuce, diced red pepper and carrots and topped it with a fried egg.
I also made a simple dressing which I got from the February 2006 issue of "Healthy Cooking"
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
pinch of salt
freshly ground pepper
And how cute is this dog? He/She always waits like this. Kind of reminds me of a drive-thru, waiting to take an order or of a prisoner in jail, wanting to get out. I had to take the photo from aways back so that he/she wouldn't bark at me.
Hope you're having a great day!
