Brioche, Prosciutto, Gruyere & Egg with a Marjoram Pesto

MONDAY Brioche with Prosciutto, Gruyère & Egg   | Marjoram Sauce with Capers & Green Olives |  Grapefruit Wedges We like a wide-variety of foods…greens, meats, pastas, grains, fish…everything in moderation.  I really strive to make “eating-in” as exciting and varied as if we would “eat-out” every night.
