Been A While....good things take time

If Blogs truly reflect a person's life, mine is either too busy to write daily or too scattered to keep up the discipline.  As writing "Fifty Five Is The New..." would indicate, I am capable of the discipline of almost daily writing....so what gives? 

I don't know. What I do know is that cooking is a daily occurrence, at least for me.
Many mornings begin with eggs in our household.
Over easy with a dab of melted cheese over top of the slightly liquid yolk.
Sometimes I do something extra.....like so:

OVER EASY EGGS ON A RAFT OF TOAST

For each egg you need a piece of bread.
Take the bread and with a cookie cutter, glass or lid from non-stick spray can, cut a hole in the center of the bread.  Toast bread slightly on both sides, including the cut-out pieces. They will be the "caps" on top of the eggs.

Eggs cooking inside bread
Spray hot pan with release spray (Pan or so on), add toasted bread slice.  Crack egg into center of toasted bread slice hole.  Egg should begin cooking.  When it seems firm (white looses transparency, yolk still soft)
take spatula and lift toast piece.  Egg should come up with it at this point.  Turn or "flip" so that bottom side is up.  Cook for a few moments more, depending on how firm you want your egg yolk.  Turn off heat. Remove pan from hot burner.  Flip egg again so that original side is back on top.  Place cheese slice on top of yolk. Cover with lid and let sit for 2 minutes, until cheese melts.
Serve alone or with sausage, fruit or other sides.

That's a pretty good starter for the day.

So 'til next time!
Life is a feast- DIG IN!
