Beautiful Days...

... lead to falling behind on the blog.

Finished the first book of 2009. Fledgling by Octavia Butler. I'm aiming to read more than one book a month, but had a rough start with another book that couldn't keep my interest. Now I'm reading Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake, which I am enjoying but is dense, dense, dense. So it may take a little while to get through.

Meanwhile there have been:

Delicious breakfasts. The only way I'm willing to eat eggs besides the (very) occasional egg salad or deviled eggs.

Baked Shrimp Scampi from Ina Gartens Back To Basics, another Christmas present. Delicious, easier to make than usual scampi, and would definitely be a great course for those dinner parties I'm going to have someday.

Beautiful days at the Getty Villa, where someone else made lunch for me, and I sat and enjoyed the view far more than the art.

When you said you were enjoying the view, I thought you meant Kirby, and I thought "Awww." Then I scrolled down and realized you meant That View. Hehe.

How is the egg in that picture prepared. I can't really see the egg but I assume its on top of the bread and under the red stuff and cheese.

Your cooking blogging is inspiring. We should swap successful recipe ideas :)

I meant both views. :) One was adorable, the other the kind of view that makes you feel downright pagan.

The recipe for the egg is:


And Meggish gets the credit for sending it to me. I added Parmesan. Because I had it.
