Savory Oats With Poached Eggs, Bye Bye Winter- Sort Of

Savory Oats With Poached Eggs-
I'm always on the lookout for new dinner egg recipes. My three girls (aka hens) have been laying really well in the dark days of winter. About 2-3 eggs per day! I found this recipe last week at my dentist's office. It's next on my egg recipe list to try. I'd never thought of cooking and crisping up prosciutto! Recipe here- Savory Oats With Poached Eggs  Here's another version, with rolled oats used instead- Savory Parmesan Oats With Poached Egg  It seems like there are lots of versions out there, who knew! For a dessert I'll be trying Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars No bake cookies here too- 3 Minute No Bake Cookies I have made these but I cut the sugar back.

Bye Bye Winter- Sort Of-
Last night I wrote- Between the dirty/crusty snow, gray skies, and now an inversion, I'm so sick of winter! GIVE ME SOME BLUE SKIES! I wouldn't care if it was 10 degrees, I just need some sun!!! We had a tiny bit of sun more than a week or two ago. It's been so long I don't remember. That's sad. I woke up this morning and the sun was out! Still a bit hazy but I can see some blue sky! Hallelujah!!!

Late day sun

It's time to put away the winter indoor decor. I have enough outside to remind me. No more snowmen! I'm putting back out my normal year-round decor, with some Valentine's Day thrown in. Much cheerier!

I'm recovering from my fall on the ice at work last week. Elbow's still sore, but knee is better, back is still talking to me. It was good I was wearing a thick coat, padded my fall. Throw in my excellent Chiropractor and I'm on the mend. I have a big batch of homemade pasta sauce cooking with my frozen, organic tomatoes from the summer harvest. It's like a dose of warm weather!

Glad to hear your owies from your fall are healing. As they say, coulda been a lot worse!

Your weather is warming up and ours is going back down into the deep freeze after our (extended) January thaw. Such is winter. We have to take what we get. It sure would all be easier to take if there was sunshine in the mix though.

Never thought of using eggs with oats. Another lesson in there's always something new to learn. :o]

That is one gorgeous, BIG tree in your back yard!

I will have to try savory oats - I always relegate them to breakfast! I'm with you - let's jazz things up inside!
