Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
We had a very low key holiday which included lots of driving, listening to our parents whine, me deciding we will be 'going away' for Christmas next year and the Suburban Prince has to deal with it again as it's his father's birthday today...so he will be going to see his parents...again. I decided I will not allow the Little Prince to be put in a car again and driven around the province again and miss his nap...again. So, I will be staying home with him and we will work on getting the house tidy again.
We didn't get each other much in the way of presents...neither of us need anything except house renovations so that's where we decided to put our energy and efforts. I did give the Suburban Prince some of the books he wanted and a couple signed by the authors. He gave me a T&Co scarf...the little skinny one, perfect for going around a wrist or tying on a purse and a LWhelan scarf she made especially for me and my need for cheeky monkey fabric. I cant wait to wear both!
The Little Prince gave me a TimeOut...he is quite pleased with himself!
I am already thinking about packing up some of the decorations - I dont usually feel this way but this year I just dont feel like dragging it all into the new year. Start as you mean to go on! So I will take some down every day and leave the tree with lights on until Epiphany (because I am just so religious) and that way I wont be trying to put it all away until Valentine's day!
The Suburban Prince will be coming home with his brother tonight so I needed to come up with something for breakfast tomorrow morning....here is one of my favourite dishes...so easy, inexpensive and very, very yummy!
I have always been a fan of simple breakfasts and this is a take on Barefoot Contessa's herbed baked eggs...it's basically the 'Husband-is-hungry-now' version!
Butter/grease/oil/spray a ramekin.
Crack your eggs into it.
Top with lots of sea salt with kelp, Italian seasoning, pepper and old cheddar.
Bake at 350 until the eggs are as runny or firm as you like them.
I serve them with toast and lots of coffee!
Have a fabulous day!
