morning ritual

i love breakfast... especially going out for breakfast at my favorite place al's breakfast in dinky town. but, i'm not so good at the day to day making myself breakfast in the morning. i usually survive on coffee, and frankly that's not working so well these days. so, i decided to start a new morning ritual {inspired by nigella lawson} ... a soft boiled egg with sea salt {served in grandma verlie's egg cups}, and honey whole wheat and flax seed toast fingers. it was the perfect way to start the day, and with a little thunder storm brewing... even better. i think it's going to be a good day.

soft cooked egg {with toast fingers for dipping}
1 egg {the fresh ones are the best} this is when i miss having chickens... someday soon we'll have our farm.
honey whole wheat and flax artisan bread, toasted and buttered. i used this recipe, and added flax seed meal. i baked it just as a do my artisan bread in a free form loaf.
1 match stick {nigella lawson's trick}

bring water to a boil, slowly lower the egg into the water. boil for 4 minutes.
