Lunch for one

Today's lunch experiment was particularly successful, so I thought I'd post about it here:

Curried Egg Sandwich

2 eggs, beaten
1 - 2 cloves garllic, minced
about a teaspoon curry powder
olive oil, or ghee if you keep it around
fresh parsley, minced
2 slices good bread

Heat the oil in a small frying pan. When hot, add the garlic and curry powder. Saute unti the garlic is soft. Add the eggs, and scramble. Meanwhile, toss the bread in the toaster. Eggs go on top of the bread, parsley goes on top of that. Give it a good grind of fresh black pepper, and you are done.

Note about the curry powder: if you are a foodie, you already know this, but I'll throw it out there anyway. Toasting spices or heating them in a little oil intensifies and develops the flavor beautifully. Accumulating tips like these and basic methods gradually allows you to become a better off-the-cuff cook, developing rather than following recipes.
