Sunday brunch and pillows

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. Maybe it's all those years of my mom telling me it's the most important meal of the day, but I love it. Weekdays I always eat cereal or oatmeal, but on weekends...breakfast craziness ensues.

Today my dear friend Alisha is making her way over to break the fast with me and Ryan. I'm branching out and attempting baked eggs in tomatoes!

In the above picture, I've hollowed out 6 roma tomatoes by cutting off the very top and scooping the insides out with a spoon. Then I cut a bit off the bottom so they would stay upright in my casserole dish. I added some sauteed onions and spinach and will fill each tomato with eggs and then bake for 15 minutes at 400.

We'll also have oven potatoes and pumpkin bread I made yesterday. I'm trying to act like it's Fall out here in California even when it's sunny and hot everyday. Baking Fall things helps.

And in unrelated news, I whipped up some simple 16" square pillows yesterday for our couch. I started and finished while watching New Scandinavian Cooking on PBS (love this show!). One side of the pillow is solid black and the other is the patterned fabric. I need to make a few more yet, but thought I'd make a couple more interesting ones to pair with the basic look.


  1. Thanks! It turned out pretty well except the eggs leaked a tiny bit out the bottom of the tomatoes...I think they would have worked better with bigger tomatoes maybe? Either way, they were tasty! :)

  2. The breakfast WAS delicious!!! :)

  3. LOVE the fabric you chose for the pillow. Is that a Scandi red sofa it is sitting on?

  4. Thanks, Pam! I got the fabric on sale at JoAnn's, I love a good deal. :) And good eye, it is a Scandi red sofa they're sitting on!!
