burrowing in


Drizzling, snowing, pretty nasty weather out there; all pointing to a fattening and hearty breakfast, reading old Anne Rice books (the Mayfair witches series), and later on maybe a beautiful glass of port...oh, and of course, I will put the fireplace on as well. Ha! the Babe is outside shovelling dirt and doing man's work and I am glad I am not him.

I made baked eggs - basically I stir fry anything I happen to have on hand - today it's bacon, peppers and onions, crack the eggs on top and bake at 375F for about 20 minutes. I contemplated sprinkling all with sharp, shredded cheddar. Realistically, I have gained two pounds over the past few weeks and I am already killing the Babe and I with the four or five (who is counting?) pieces of bacon in the dish...so I forswore the cheese. Sigh!

Hope you all have a happy weekend. Can you believe it's October 20th? Like...where has the year gone...it's Halloween in a week and a bit. What gives!
