summer update #6: breakfast

wholesome breaky

after last night's extravagance, i was compelled to have a virtuous breakfast. frankly, it was only that i went running that i was able to eat anything at all -- when i woke up, i was still pretty stuffed from dinner.

at any rate, i put this little dish together. it definitely ranks up there as one of my all-time best quick and easy breakfast treats: plain yogurt, nectarines, fresh basil and (not pictured) chopped up roasted almonds. the nectarines were just hitting ripeness, so they were crispy and slightly tart. which went quite nicely with the sweetness of the basil. and the almonds added a pleasant crunch. not to mention the fact that the dish looks so pretty and summery!

i also had an iced coffee. with soymilk. and read the newspaper. what a wholesome sunday morning.

You are way too wholesome. I had a nasty hangover because of the surprise party thrown for me last night. You got me beat.
