Breakfast in Sonoma

I woke up at seven and couldn’t convince myself to go back to sleep, so I got up, put the cover on the hot tub, cleaned up the house, collected the empty wine bottles and split a baguette with a poached egg on one side and homemade marmalade on the other.  I managed to finish eating just before everyone else started emerging from their rooms.

  1. I wish I could poach eggs… I love poached eggs. I guess I could always buy one of those poaching things. What are they called? Poachers? :P

  2. Suki, to be honest, that was the first time I ever poached an egg. It’s easy, I swear!

    1. Bring a deep pot of water with a shot of vinegar added to a slow boil.
    2. Crack the egg (on a flat surface, not an edge or corner) and pour it into the water from the shell.
    3. The egg will sink to the bottom and then begin to float up as it cooks.
    4. Poke at the egg with a spoon to determine level of doneness if you are feeling timid, but really, once it floats, it’s fine.
