Recipe: Emily's Cobb

A rare warm evening in San Francisco and the first chance to eat at home in four days...what to make for dinner? A big cobb salad in a bright red bowl. My variation includes lettuce, turkey bacon, black olives, bleu cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Followed by watermelon and blueberries for dessert.

I usually add an avocado to the salad, but decided to try a boiled egg this time instead. It's part of my strategy to start eating all the things I didn't used to like.

By the way, is there a consensus now? Are eggs supposed to be good for you or bad for you?

Umm...I think good for you. As long as you don't eat too much of the yolk. Which is, of course, the really tasty part :). Love the red bowl!

I'm thinking still good for you. At least that's what I try and tell myself, as I loved hardboiled eggs!!

They are not bad in moderation. Pasture raised eggs have 'half the cholesterol, and much higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as a number of important micronutrients difficult to get from other natural sources.' http://www.eatwell.com/community/eggs.htm

Good for you! But that's mostly because I love them and I refuse to give them up. I think there was a NYT piece on this in the health section a couple weeks ago, and I'm pretty sure they would back me up.
Looks delicious and I love the bowl!

I think good for you too - all of the egg not just the whites or yolks anymore! Cobb salads are my favorite!

I dunno about the eggs, but since pregnant I've been loving eggs and any kind of salad...so I'll have to add this one to the list. Thanks!
