It’s been so rainy here that dinner has been inside the past few days instead of on the deck. This week has been extremely busy. One rainy night he made the best tomato soup I’ve ever eaten. We had grilled ham & cheese to go with it. It was a perfect rainy night for soup and grilled cheese.
This picture is from the night we had wraps. He used up the leftovers and added fresh lettuce and tomatoes. The portions he serves me usually end up being three meals. Sometimes I can eat like a cowgirl and really grub but this was so filling I could only eat a third of what was on my plate. Per his usual, it was delicious.
Adult version of a Bacon Bunny.
12 slices of bacon
6 slices of bread
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 large eggs
6 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
Cook bacon in a non-stick skillet over medium to low heat until it is uncooked at desired texture. When cooked, place bacon onto a paper towel to remove excess grease.
Lightly butter or oil a baking sheet.
Using a 3 inch biscuit cutter, or a drinking glass, make a hole in the centre of each bread slice.
Butter one side of the bread. Place the bread onto the prepared baking sheet, buttered side down. Place the excess circle bread slices, that were created from the cutter, onto the baking sheet butter side down as well (this will be extra bread to dip into your egg).
Add bacon slices and eggs, gently cracking the eggs into each hole and keeping the yolk intact. Sprinkle with Parmesan and thyme; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Place into oven and bake until the egg whites have set, about 12-15 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with chives.

3 old friends, sitting in a row.
Chatting together about what they know.
So much wisdom, they have to share,
To those who stop to listen and care.

If you could pick anyone, from any time, to sit at this table with you and have a drink, who would you choose?
Often the simple things in life can bring us the most pleasure.
