It was a super-busy weekend, with the local farmer's market open Friday, a garage sale all day Saturday and some yard work for several hours yesterday in the hot, hot sun. And church. And a haircut. A sassy new summer hairdo. Hooray for short hair!

Since I was exhausted last night, dinner was a salad. I bought a head of Jericho lettuce at the farmer's market Friday--a Romaine variety, a light-green plant with a large, dense head that is bolt resistant and stays sweet in hot weather. It was a delightful base to my salad.
I topped the salad with plum tomatoes (salmonella be damned!), chunked cucumber and red bell pepper, sprinkled with salt and pepper, drizzled with a light vinaigrette, and all topped with a perfectly poached egg.
Yum! The egg yolk combined with the vinaigrette for a delicious sauce perfect for sopping with a piece of bread.
