IT is Sunday. Few days before Christmas. LIFE IS GOOD!

How are you, friends?!?

I know, ’tis THE Season, and  you’re droppin’ that money like it’s HOT, but I hope that in the midst of all this hussle and bussle you are able to take it all IN and enjoy it.

I say all this as I’m wrapping the FOURTH Elsa doll while screaming out some profanities, silently.

I’m currently looking at My Size Elsa, then we have Snow Glow Elsa, then there’s Elsa Singing Doll AND Elsa Sparkle Doll.
Because, hey, the good ol’ Princess Elsa was just too plain(???).

But, I HAD to buy all 4. Don’t you judge! I have 2 daughters and 2 nieces, all under the age of 6.

Nevertheless… it thrills me. For real. Lemme just add a bit of bourbon to my cappuccino…

Now we can move forward.

Let’s talk about how we’re adding a poached egg to salmon and topping that with a cheese sauce… From dolls to fish – it’s how we roll.

The first time I encountered a poached egg on top of fish was years ago at this gorgeous restaurant in Chicago.
Before then, I really didn’t care for fish, but once I saw the egg placed over it, I was a changed woman.

It’s so darn simple, but it was just sooooo good!

After going back to the restaurant an embarrassing amount of times just to have their fish again, I decided to start making my own poached eggs, gosh darn it! AND fish, of course.

Three words for you: go to town! with this!

If you’re serving fish for Christmas Eve dinner, make THIS! I promise you everyone will be asking for the recipe. Pinky swear. It is THAT amazing.
The sauce alone is enough to make you want to dive in, head first, and chow down.

Have a terrific Sunday!

ENJOY!
