Sundays with J: Yum-O

This is how I'll be spending my sundays, hopefully from now on. My childhood friend J has always enjoyed food though he complains about the frustration of chewing....what?? Whatever it is that J is trying to whine about he doesn't mind the process of cooking exceptional food.

I went to wholefoods yesterday and as soon I stepped in it felt like home. I love everything about this place, it's so beautiful...I'm like a kid in a candy store when it comes to grocery stores and this place is like the mecca of it all. So I let my eyes do the wandering and then it came...the inspiration. I laid my eyes on some seedless cucumbers, loose golden beets, a bunch of radishes, a head of red cabbage and a whole heck of a lot more. I knew as I walked in I wanted to make pasta for lunch, so I grabbed 4 different types of mushrooms; enoki, oyster, cremini, and button. Since J wanted to learn a few techniques in the kitchen I decided to throw in a few extra additions of poached eggs, watercress salad and a 3 potato roast. Quick, simple, and doable.
