IMG_5955It turns out Rose has Strep, not a stomach virus. She’s feeling better but doesn’t have much of an appetite, and is still on pastina soup. Shane is away for a few more days. The moment he got a break in his stomach virus (which may, or may not be Strep), he took off for the biennial, 5 day collage-a-thon, 100 Hours in the Woodshed IV.

I figured I should take advantage of my family’s absence and poor health, and experiment with some recipes. As a mostly vegetarian, sometimes pescetarian, I feel like I should eat eggs a lot. But more often than not, eggs don’t taste good to me. This has been a lifelong thing and I don’t know what makes an egg work for me and what doesn’t, except that most of the time a lot of cheese helps.

Tonight I combined one egg, an ounce of grated cheddar, an ounce of chevre, a tablespoon of half & half, and salt & pepper. I poured them into a greased ramekin and baked them for about 15 minutes at 350. The result was okay, but needs improvement. I wanted them to be creamier and custardier, I think. Perhaps more cream or (gasp) egg?

If you have suggestions, please do leave them in the comments section. Thanks!
