You didn't read the recipe--there are 3 eggs (I doubled the recipe, so I used 6 eggs). I made a smaller pie pan one for the DH to take to work tomorrow--that one serves 1, whereas the springform one serves 2. So yes, it used eggs. And, it tastes better than the last time I made it--this time, we had "real" eggs, not those store-bought eggs.

I'm not completely sure, but I'm thinking about just browning some ground beef and adding whatever strikes my fancy (tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, vegetables, garlic, spices).

We went to a funeral this afternoon so to take advantage of the fact that we were all awake and dressed up at the same time we went to Texas Roadhouse. Had a wonderfully cooked ribeye, mashed taters and salad with potato skins for an appy. It was good!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

.....Tried to cut the pork belly but it just fell apart. Rind was too crispy. For anybody who has never slow roasted a peice of pork belly, do it. It is phenomenal.

Last night we had chicken schnitzels and baked potatoes
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Fresh blueberries and Cheerios. DH opened all the windows, and it's now too hot to cook.

We had ice-cream cake for dinner tonight. :)
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

sunday was a feast for all of the senses.after visiting mum bolas,madge & i took a short drive through breathtaking welsh countryside to llyn brenig.at over 1400 ft altitude the highest fishing reservoir in the country & a site of historical importance.carbon dating of charcoal/artifacts found during construction indicates that part of the valley was the site of a mesolithic encampment dating back to 5700 bc.completed in 1976 the reservoir was built to protect the water supply of north west england(bl**dy english!!) & east wales.the deep crystal clear waters are fed by the rivers & streams from the surrounding mountains/pine forests.
even visitors talk in whispers so as not to disturb the natural beauty & wildlife that populates the surrounding nature reserve.the world fly fishing,international & national fly fishing contests have all been held there & the brown/rainbow trout in the lake are stocked from a hatchery at the dam end of the lake.only artificial lures/bates are allowed thus further protecting the purity of the water.hire of a boat with outboard only costs 20 for a whole days fishing!.the records are 22lbs for rainbow & 21lbs for brown trout.we shall return with rods but part of me hopes we don't catch anything....might spoil the day!!
a spellbinding/magical place only 40 minutes up the road.sometimes it's not all about the food.......food for thought my fellow gastronauts?

I spent a lot of money on booze,birds & fast cars.The rest I just squandered.
