Good morning and welcome to another beautiful, blessed Saturday. Every day is beautiful because it is new – and provides us with opportunities galore. The opportunity to bring a smile to a stranger’s face. The opportunity to ease the pain of a child we’ve never met. The opportunity to make a difference.Continue reading “Morning Breakfast in a Cajun Skillet”
Today Mickey Mouse turns 93 – at least on film. Happy Birthday my old friend. As a child, I belonged to the Mickey Mouse Club – had an official jacket and everything. What about you?Continue reading “Tater Tot Waffles with Fried Eggs”

If there is one thing I adore, it’s a perfectly fried egg. You know, the whites fully cooked while the yolk is still bright and runny. There is a richness to runny yolks that isn’t found in a hard yolk.
Maybe I should stop writing in the morning, when I’m craving something for breakfast – eggs seems to be the theme around the kitchen these days. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast (even for dinner) and it seems that another recipe for eggs is just lurking around the next corner.
Have you ever wanted something but you didn’t know what? I wanted breakfast, but nothing too heavy. Something not too filling, but more than a quick bowl of cereal. Something that wasn’t going to turn my kitchen up-side-down. Something easy and cook friendly.
I adore Italian foods. I adore French foods. So why not bring the two together at the breakfast table, with a few American touches? This beautiful breakfast was so easy to prepare, although the kitchen was turned up-side-down in the process.
It’s another beautiful Sunday. My guys have been busy trimming, pruning and generally cleaning up the yard. We have both a large backyard and spacious side yard. The two are separated by a chain-link fence. Along the entire back fence are trees – all in need of a little TLC. One of those trees is an almond tree, planted back when all this land was part of an almond orchard. The side yard is just dirt with planter boxes. Come spring, the side yard will be transformed into our garden. Last year we had tomatoes. This year – who knows? A great deal will depend upon the return of the drought to our state and the cost of water.
