Breakfast and dessert are obviously the two most important meals of the day. Without them, how would we know when a new day has begun or an old day is ready to end? 😛
Speaking of endings, I made myself a very exciting dessert this week that started with a pile of frozen coconut chunks and a pile of frozen mango chunks:
After a little immersion blend, I found myself drooling over a perfect bowl of coconut-mango sorbet …
… and decided to incorporate it into a Sarah-style neapolitan cup:
Left to right: coconut-mango sorbet, chocolate frosting, and froyo’d yogurt with blueberries and cherries.
With a little sprinkle of hemp on top for fun:
The majority of the week’s breakfasts involved brilliantly farm-fresh CSA eggs!
Poached on half of a rescued bagel from the freezer bag:
With green tea yogurt, mango, and blueberries:
My usual poached egg eating system involves pre-slicing so I can ensure that every bite of bread has a piece of egg to go with it:
Scrambled with CSA parsley and homemade parmesan:
With nutmeg-topped pineapple and coconut chunks:
And green tea yogurt with mango and cardamom:
And a crepe egg with CSA parsley, balcony basil, and pine nut hummus:
Speaking of hummus …
… check out what Diana delivered to me at our Brooklyn blogger dinner on Monday!
She’s been keeping some of her hummus overflow in the freezer for me for weeks, and I was thrilled to finally collect it 😀
Nothing like the beauty of hummus ice cream …
I was especially excited for the hummus because I know how perfectly it would complement my fresh and crunchy CSA cucumbers! It did not let me down:
Finally, just because it is so cute, I thoroughly enjoyed snacking on my CSA baby golden plums this week:
How do you bookend your days?

I am a tea bookender. And, being a wannabe European snob, I have milk in the morning but never at night!
Sabra’s roasted pinenuts hummus is my favorite! I’m going to piggy back on the previous comment on the tea.
always, with dessert! 🙂
Chocolate, always. Nick and I eat a piece of chocolate each night right before bed! Is that wierd? We look forward to it every night 🙂

love the neopolitan cup 🙂
haha of course dessert is one of the most important meals of the day! Love that chocolate frosting!
The chipolte hummus sounds great!
i think breakfast and dessert tie as my two fave meals 😀 Score on the sabra!
That dessert looks incredible! So does the crepe egg.
Oh yay! Glad you’re enjoying the hummus–did it thaw ok? I haven’t yet thawed any frozen hummus for myself. I imagine it needed a bit of a stir at the very least.
PS The Peruvian babies in the previous post are A-DOR-A-BLE. Reminds me of my Chinese babies from days gone by… If only my blog was food-dedicated at that point! It would have seen truckloads of eggplant, plus the occasional bit of dog and scorpion. I wish I was kidding.
