Friday’s Feast~

Friday, May 4th, 2007

Appetizer
Name something you would not want to own.

A mean dog! At the end of my senior year in high school, I went to a friend’s house one evening… I was walking up the sidewalk and heard someone say, “watch out for the dog.” I looked down and noticed that their guard dog (usually in the back fence) was in the path and was showing his teeth. I wasn’t afraid of dogs so I just smiled and kept walking, that’s when it happened! He locked his pit bull jaws around the front of my leg. The owner came and ripped him off me taking part of my flesh with him. The next few hours were a blur… I remember looking down at my white ked and it was red, and then being in the ER. I am now terrified of dogs and will climb buildings or scale fences if I feel threatened by one.

Soup
Describe your hair (texture, color, length, etc.).

fine, curly/wavy, medium long (needs a trim)… I don’t know how I ever grew up without a chi. I just got a new pink one in the mail yesterday! yea! But, when I get my hair done the stylists always want to maximize my curls and I come out to quickly tuck it into a ponytail. I really wish it was naturally straight, but have learned a few techniques that keep it from looking frizzy when I straighten it so it’s not so bad and I have a lot more things to be concerned about than my hair texture…

Salad
Finish this sentence: I’ll never forget ___________.

I’ll never forget May 16, 2004.

Main Course
Which famous person would you like to be for one day? Why?

I can’t think of anyone… It would be fun to be a great singer for a day and enjoy the ability to sing beautifully, it would be fun to be a young beautiful model for a day and be able to look in the mirror at near perfection, it would be great to be someone like Oprah who has $$ at her disposal and is recognized everywhere she goes, or to be a political leader and have influence in national government, but overall I don’t think I would want to be anyone else famous or not for even a day because there are strings attached.

Dessert
Write one sentence about yourself that includes one thing that is true and another thing that is not.

I am a tall gorgeous blond woman.

I love love love Panera bread’s cinnamon crunch bagels… slightly warmed, little butter, with panera’s plain cream cheese! I just ate the last one for breakfast and boy was it good.
I need to run by and get more!

FIF~Breakfast Edition~Eggs in a nest

Friday, May 4th, 2007



6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
8 eggs
2 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup diced ham
1 cup grated Cheddar
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Butter 4 muffin cups. In a small bowl, combine melted butter and garlic. On a cutting board, stack 3 phyllo sheets and cut into fourths, forming 12 squares. Cover phyllo with a damp paper towel when not in use because it dries out quickly. Press 1 phyllo square (one sheet thick) into bottom of each muffin cup. (Don’t worry if phyllo tears) Brush with butter. Add another layer of phyllo and brush with butter. Repeat a third time. Bake for 10 minutes. Carefully remove phyllo baskets from muffin cups and cool on wire rack. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and add 1 tablespoon water. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium skillet and add eggs. Sprinkle ham over eggs. Scramble eggs to desired doneness. Sprinkle in cheese and stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper and spoon into phyllo baskets.
