I'm thinking linguine and white clam sauce, although I'll have to use spaghetti instead of linguine.
MsM......those eggs are beautiful and just the way I like them. Do you steam them?

Thank you K. No I just melt butter over medium heat, crack egg, swish and pull the white out around yolk to cook and set, when white is set I turn off fire remove from stove, flip (free hand flip or with a spat), swish on the way to the table and slide off onto plate.

Interesting MsM... the yolks are so high that they sure don't look like they've been turned over. I fry mine till almost ready and add a tiny bit of water to the side of the skillet, then slap a lid on top for a few seconds, just till the yolk has a film on it. I haven't broken a yolk for years now.

I am making a change.

Instead of the feta going into the crepes I am making a feta cream sauce to go over the top, which just might put this one over the top.

I love over-easy eggs (if the yolk isn't totally runny, I don't want it) but have a terrible time turning them sometimes. I have always wanted to try flipping it but am intimidated by that! I still have to give it a try one of these days. I will also have to try the lid method.

Your eggs and everything else on the plate look amazing MsM!

LOL You obviously are not a cucumber-hating person who has learned from experience that when you pick them out, that nasty taste stays in the salad! Maybe if I put enough onion in it, I won't notice?

I do my eggs the same way.

Tonight I have a whole salmon to cook but I am still not sure what I going to do with it.
