I have been hit pretty hard with a chest infection lately, and was feeling rather fatigue accompanied with body-aches most of the day. It was one of those days that I wanted a quick fix dinner, one that is my kind of comfort food. It is a very simple dinner with very little preparation. I just made a little more effort by ‘dolling’ it up and adding a sunny side up egg on each plate. The husband loved it, and was disappointed that there was no extra serving. I too… secretly wished I made more for my lunch the next day.
