I was helping Cecelia with her project tonight and a guest post was inspired. This is mainly a recording for myself and my family of this wonderful 4th grade project. She handed me this to type yesterday, and I did over my lunch break. Her teacher will print them in a book and she will illustrate. Priceless treasure. Some of the poems made me laugh. It is wonderful overall. If you are an Arkansas native, like myself, you will really enjoy. If you have never been to our fine state and have the time to read, hopefully it will inspire you to come visit. Our favorites are A, B, C, G, K, N, T, Y, and Z. Enjoy if you desire. The formatting was tough to regulate after copy and paste. Hope it comes across ok.
I used to do hard-boiled eggs on toast. I did that for years. Kids like scrambled eggs better. So now we do scrambled eggs on cheese toast in the morning. Cheese is variable - sliced smoked Gouda is wonderful on the weekends but really sliced sharp cheddar will do in a pinch. Add a bit of salt, Arkansas honey, and Louisiana Hot Sauce or diced red pepper and you are done.
I've never really liked fried eggs, until I read Catherine Newman's recipe for vinegar eggs. Google it - you won't be disappointed. It's amazingly wonderful in its simplicity. Cook toast, make fried eggs (I'm becoming an expert, despite having never liked fried eggs before this recipe), deposit eggs on toast, and make sauce with shake of salt, grind of pepper, tablespoon of butter, and tablespoon or two of vinegar. Sherry vinegar imparts a wonderful smoky taste. But good luck finding it! I finally found it at a grocery store in Crested Butte, CO. Before that, I used a tablespoon of red wine vinegar and a tablespoon of basalmic. A little sweeter, but still oh so good. When the butter and vinegar hit the hot pan and mix to a tangy, frothy goodness pour over your eggs and enjoy. Five minutes to heaven. Eggscellent.
