Poached Egg with Leeks and Spinach


We had the plumbers in this morning or as the landlord writes, the blumbers, to hook up the washing machine and dryer.  They also performed some kind of maintenance on the sauna and indoor pool.   I had to say that.  Don’t hate me 😀


As the plumbers arrived at 8:00 a.m., I thought this would be a good time to test my light and take my first pictures in this house.  Leeks, spinach and eggs were in the fridge and it was a good opportunity to use my Ethiopian knife and fork that I haven’t seen for at least ten years, and to use my little skillet that’s not Frugal’s.  This was simple, quick and good with some of my favorite things.  The light was good too 🙂

Poached Egg with Leeks and Spinach

1 1/2 tbsp butter

1/2 cup leeks, sliced

6 leaves baby spinach

Salt and pepper

1 perfectly poached egg

Cook the leeks in the butter until tender, remove from flame, stir in the spinach and season with salt and pepper.  Top with the egg and enjoy.
