Peek-a-Boo Eggs

She is here! Baby Sarah came Sunday morning at 8:00. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and is the most precious little thing! I was sooo excited that she came before I left. I called Meg today because I just couldn't wait to get over there. They brought her home this afternoon and I went over to bring her a crown. Sarah means princess so she needed her first crown!
 Papa Will is in love with his little girl! So adorable!
 Megan is doing very well. God blessed her with an easy birth and a perfect child, what more could a mother ask for!

 Yeah! Sarah and I will have many play dates to come.

I thought this blog post fit perfectly after seeing the new Lewis family....
I credit my mom with most of my cooking skills, especially my recipes! But, some of my favorite childhood memories are cooking breakfast with my dad. Many Saturdays started with my dad, brother and I cooking breakfast. We would stand on a chair and actually do the cooking! I think this is why my brother and I love to cook so much. We were introduced very young! We used to make homemade hash browns and sometimes green scrambled eggs, like from Dr. Seuss. Peek-a-Boo eggs were also a big hit. I love them and have started making them for Jeffrey. Can you believe he had never heard of them!

Peek-a-Boo Eggs

1 egg
1 slice of bread
cooking spray
salt and pepper
optional: jam

Use a cup with a smaller hole (or a small circle cooking cutter) to cut a hole out of the center of the bread.
(sorry I was planning to take more pictures the next time I made this, but I didn't get around to it...)
Butter both sides of the bread and the hole of of the bread.
Melt about 1 Tb of butter in the bottom of a skillet. If you have a non-stick skillet, this is the time to use it. If not you may also want to use some PAM to keep the eggs from sticking.
Place the bread in the skillet, two pieces were actually too big for my skillet, but if you want to try it go ahead.
Crack the egg in the center of the bread.
Cook for a minute or two on medium.

Carefully flip the bread. If you do not have a non-stick skillet, lift the bread and spray the pan with PAM again before flipping it.
Cook for another minute and move to a plate.
Season with salt and pepper. Then spread your favorite jam thinly on the bread around the egg. I know it sounds weird, but it tastes really good all together! I think I know what I am making for breakfast in the morning!!
