grilled wedge salad with a fried egg and cranberry feta

i returned home yesterday to a denim-clad smiley faced eggboy, a very gleeful garden, and a garage that doesn't have a boat in it (i'm still not actually sure who the boat belonged to, if it actually works, and where it is now, but it was here since we moved in and despite how glamorous having a boat sounds, having a second parking spot feels equally if not more glamorous, especially when i'm still on the fence about the boat shoe trend). 

being home right now feels kind of like i just ran 10 miles and am about to eat a pizza. it's great and i sort of never want to leave, but at some point we're going to have to hit the road for at least a few days to scout wedding venues. eeee!!!!

speaking of weddings, let's talk salads. because i'm going to eat a lot more of them in the coming months, or at least that's what i tell myself when there isn't a box of donuts in front of me. the good people at président cheese are hosting a big internet salad party, so i just went straight for the good stuff, i.e. bacon and eggs. it's kind of a man salad, and it may or may not be a breakfast sandwich in disguise, but it's a fun main attraction if you feel like a grilling by the pool but feel awkward downing a burger while wearing a bathing suit. 

rather than dressing this salad, i like cooking the yolk so that it's extra runny and oozes all up in that wedge. this combined with the yummy grilled taste of the lettuce and onion and topped with sweet tangy cranberry feta makes for a very fun salad. 

be sure to check out the other salads up in here because they all look so fun and tasty!!!!
