Today, May 29, 2011, is my good friends, Amber and Stevie Lewis’ sixteenth wedding anniversary. They are having a party, and Stevie said he wanted Baked Beans and Amber said she wanted Deviled Eggs. I happily volunteered to make both.

I had never made Boston Baked Beans before, but I had recently found a recipe I wanted to try, and this was the perfect opportunity.

I also wanted to make the eggs special, so I decided to garnish them with different toppings. My Myriad Deviled Eggs turned out beautiful!

Spane’s birthday is tomorrow, November 21, 2010.  He is going to be 7 years old!  So, like every birthday there is the preparation for the party.  This year will be the first one where he gave out invitations. 

Originally, we were going to have the party at Carr Park, but since it is supposed to rain, Amber volunteered to host the party at her house.  That meant sending out notices to everyone to let them know about the change of venue.  I hope everyone will make it.

May 12, 2010 was Spane’s last day in Catechism for the year. It was also the May Crowning at our parish.

Maria had asked me weeks ago if we were going to have anything special for the children, like we did for Christmas. Last week when I saw Sandra, and she mentioned that she was going to BUY cookies for a gathering after class. I told her to not buy cookies, that I would happily make cookies and bring them. Since I knew it would be the May Crowning, I thought that flowers would be appropriate.

Eric Goeddel chose Mrs. Francisco’s class

This morning, our friends Barney and Charlie came by because we were going to UCLA to see the baseball game against the Oregon Ducks. Spane’s first grade class (Mrs. Francisco) was chosen by number 33 Eric Goeddel to come to the game at UCLA today.

Out friend, Maria, was with us as she is on all Sunday mornings. I love Maria Torres so much! She is so much fun, and when she tells those headline jokes, it’s just too much!

Anyway, you’re here to hear about the food, right? Well, when I had asked Bonnie to come from breakfast, and what she liked, she had said pancakes. Hmmm, I thought to myself last night – that’s a lot of pancakes to stand there and make (and this is right after making Cheddar Cheese Spritz Crackers last night). I vaguely remembered hearing about a baked pancake, so I decided to make Dutch Babies, otherwise known as Baked Pancakes.

I served the pancake with fresh strawberries and sweetened sour cream. Baked bacon was also on the menu. It was truly a hit!

Simple and Light Friday Morning Food

Okay, you don’t have to have this on Friday, and you don’t even have to have it for breakfast at all. I made this on a Saturday afternoon.

Scrambled Eggs with Tomato, Basil and Salmon Cream Cheese

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp chopped basil (preferably fresh)
  • 1 fresh tomato, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh, unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp Philadelphia Salmon Cream Cheese
  • Himalayan Pink Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper for garnish
  • Method

    Beat the egg with the basil and milk until you cannot see any of the egg white.

    Put a skillet on the stove and heat it to medium. Put the butter in the skillet, and swirl it around so it coats the sides of the pan as well.

    As soon as the butter is melted, add the egg mixture. Scramble the eggs, and just before they are finished, add the tomato and cream cheese. Mix in the pan.

    Serve with the salt and pepper. Enjoy
