Love the setup; don't love the pic below it! Sure, potatoes are fat-free, but I thought we were long past the notion that eating fat is what makes you fat! I am not by anti-potato by any means, and long live real food grown by real people, but as any woman of a certain age (i.e. old enough to remember tried-and-true dietary wisdom from before the low-fat craze) will tell you, if you want to lose weight, don't eat "white food" (sugar, white bread, white pasta, white rice, and white potatoes). See also Julia Child, who, when she and her husband needed to trim down, wrote that they attempted to reduce their carbohydrate intake - tricky, with all that wonderful bread in France! Off my soapbox now, sorry :)

Black caraway also known as nigella seeds, I think, which is how I've seen them sold.

My host grandmother in Japan used to make this for me for breakfast every morning. She would break the egg into a little dish and microwave it for 10-20 seconds and take it out, barely cooked (salmonella was not a concern, apparently!). This would then be poured over a bowl of rice and topped with umeboshi, pickled garlic, and whatever other pickled vegetables were around, and a splash of soy sauce. The liquid yolk would coat each grain of rice with a sweet golden film, offset by the bite of the garlic and vinegar. The jiggliness of the egg white would freak me out at first, but I got to really like it, and I swear she would cook it for less and less time as the summer went on.

WONDERFUL movie! Must have seen it hundreds of times when I was a kid. Maybe that's why I eat when I'm stressed - I'm unconsciously emulating Audrey Hepburn? Now if my metabolism would only follow suit...
