Can I just say how much I LOVE Sunday Mornings! Especially the ones like today –where the view out of my kitchen window is nothing but white frozen lake and I am allowing myself to indulge in a day of full procrastination (all pressing work on the back burner till further notice). There is nothing I want to do more, other than enjoy this VERY late morning, me & my girlie still in our PJ’s at 11:30 AM, making brunch together with no pressing urge to really “start” our day.
A lazy Sunday is rare, and so I am making the most of this one – and it REALLY is WAY to cold to venture out, even though I could use a quick trip to the grocery store. Which is how I got to making this very delicious Fried Egg Avocado & Cream Cheese roll ups for this morning’s brunch.
I saw this idea for making the avocado and egg on pinterest. My daughter and I really love avocados (for Tunie it is her GO-to food), and always have a few, in all states of ripeness, on my kitchen counter, and we both love runny sunny side up eggs, so this recipe was a MUST TRY!
Then with the extra leftover Challah rolls from Shabbos, I made these super quick and easy cream cheese roll up as a treat. I make these all the time when I am looking to use up my Challah, it is one of the many recipes I have to use up those leftovers. Your kids will love them, and they are really great for an on-the-go breakfast.
I am hoping that this day of leisure can last a few more hours before the cold reality of life sets in and so I am off to enjoy it …. manyna all!
