  1. My dietician taught me this breakfast.  It's simple and a little different, high in protein, low carb and tasty.


    Mini "soufflés"

    Night before, saute sliced baby Portabella mushrooms, green onion sliced into small rings and some diced ham until the mushrooms are cooked down.


    Next morning:

    Preheat your oven to 350.

    Line a cupcake pan with parchment paper cups for as many "soufflés" as you will be making.  Make sure the cups are tall and extend above the level of the cupcake pan.

    In the bottom of each paper cup, put in a tablespoon of the ham mixture and a table spoon of your favorite grated cheese.

    In a small bowl (I use a glass measuring cup), whisk together 1 large egg and a tablespoon of milk/cream until thoroughly combined

    Pour the egg mixture into one of the prepared baking cups.  Repeat the egg process until you have all the cups filled.

    Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.  After 30 minutes, you will need to monitor the baking process to ensure you don't overcook the eggs.  When the tops are lightly browned, they are fully cooked.

    Serve immediately.


    The reason for the tall parchment cups is the egg mixture will expand when it's baking and rise well above the top of the cupcake pan.  If you don't have the tall cups to contain the mixture, you will end up with quite a mess to clean up.

    Kris, thank you for the consideration, but I'll pass.  I've done a LOT of volunteer stuff over the past few decades (and still do); it's someone else's turn to step up.  ;)


    I completely understand that.  Something to keep in the back of your mind, should the inkling ever arise......

    Workin' on it.  Mebbe in the coming year....   :rolleyes:


    (But this story likely won't be in it) :ph34r:


    I can think of a good use for you and your suit, if you are so inclined.  I'm sure there are orphanages in your area that would love to have a visit from an experienced Santa as yourself. You wouldn't have to deal with nasty parents either....   Just a thought......


    Good on you for bringing such great memories to the kids.  I'm sure they appreciated it.

  4. My grandmother was kept in a Polish forced labor camp until my mother was able to get her freed, sometime around 1967.  My mother then flew to Europe and took Oma home to the rest of the family in East Germany.  The part of the family in West Germany was not able to see her at that time.  Oma lived to see the fall of the wall and have the family re-united again.

    Today I remembered my favorite fireman slogan (and there are many)>


    "Your worst day, is our every day". 


    Thank you to all the great firemen, who came to our aid this morning. 

    May the Lord bless, and protect, all of you.






    Please don't forget the ladies that were a part of your call.  That's why we are now called Firefighters..........


    BTDT - Got too many of the t-shirts.

  6. We are taking another couple out to dinner for Christmas.  They don't have the means for a  nice dinner and have hosted us for gatherings on several occasions.  {He is allergic to cats so they don't come here.}  That's about it.  I purchased a couple of utilitarian items for Uno and he purchased one for me.  We'll listen to home holiday music on the radio and that's about it.  Simple and meaningful.
