kitchen explorations

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ryno and I did end up road-tripping, but only as far North as Round Rock, TX. I'm not sure it can even be considered a road trip, since it is often grouped with Austin. We had a fun time doing some shopping up there. However, on our next trip I would like to make it to the downtown main street. It looks so quaint from photos!


















We also spent some time cooking in our kitchen, which was fun. I attempted to perfect the fried egg sandwich. Ryno liked the combination I put together. We toasted potato bread, spread on a creamy swiss cheese, added fresh tomatoes, hot sause and then our fried eggs. It was delicious and seemed summery with the vine ripe tomatoes. I found a great technique guide for the fried egg here. Perhaps the most exciting part was finally using my cast-iron skillet! Until this weekend, I have feared ruining it somehow...I know that sounds ridiculous as it is iron. Nevertheless it sounded like something I am capable of doing by accident. 

Since I didn't think to take a photo of our fried egg sandwich here is another one instead.
