Even with a sick kiddo

the chickens needed to get processed. So Boomer went alone while Madigan and I camped out on the couch with pedialite, Popsicles and a bowl…just in case. Most of the day Madigan slept, having been up till 3 getting sick every 7 to 10 min. When Boomer got home I got to work on breaking down 20 chicken. The first 8 are a breeze, the next 5 you think why did I get so many, then the last 7 go in the freezer whole. It’s all worth it though.

That’s one full freezer.

Easy quick dinner

Baked eggs in prosciutto cups are a busy weeknight dinner. A vendor sells prosciutto at the market every few weeks and it is both terribly expensive and terribly good. So i buy a pack of meat that is more expensive than saffron per ounce and save it for a random Wednesday night when I can’t seem to get a decent dinner together. All you need is onions/scallions/leeksm, eggs, prosciutto, and some cheese.

Line the pan cups with prosciutto, put in some of the aromatics or cheese, and then break an egg into the cup. Pop into the oven @ 375 until the eggs are cooked to your liking. I then sprinkle cheese on top and melt it a little. I like my eggs cooked hard so we put them in for a little extra.

Tastes much better than it looks.
