Prosciutto Egg Drops

Santana made these when we watched the Formula 1 race at their house a few weeks back and Ben got the recipe from her since we both enjoyed them so much.

They’re super easy to make and so far everyone I know who’s tried them can’t get enough.

We had leftover thyme from when we had Sierra and her family over for a BBQ so I decided to make a quick lunch/snack for Ben and I on Sunday.

You’ll need:

  • Olive oil to grease the pan
  • Muffin pan to cook in
  • Prosciutto (12 slices or ~6oz.)
  • Eggs (12 count)
  • Gruyère cheese (1 cup grated)
  • Heavy whipping cream (1/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 365(F) degrees. Then start by lining the muffin pan with olive oil. For this batch I used half the amount of prosciutto (not as recommended because they don’t keep their shape as well nor have the eye appeal) to line the pan like a cupcake wrapper.

Then grab a tablespoon heaped with Gruyère cheese and drop into each cup. Crack an egg into each (without breaking the yolk) and then drizzle with roughly a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. Top each cup with a sprinkle of thyme as well as salt and pepper.

Pop them into the oven for ~15 min or until set (adjust time depending on how you want the yolk cooked). Then take them out and let them cool. I haven’t had an issue letting them cool in the muffin pan but I’m sure a wire rack is optimal.

…super easy!

Bricktown Canal

Ben and I took Tove to Bricktown yesterday afternoon and took a stroll around the canal.

A bit windy like always but the spring weather was quite nice!

We stopped at Heyday for a refresher and thought we lost Tove’s pacifier for a good second. ALAS it was under her stroller and we were all good.

Imola GP 2022

Watching the formula 1 race while Tove takes her morning nap.

The rain is fitting as we had storms last night as well. Luckily no tornados 🌪 even though we bunkered down in the laundry room for a bit while we were under a watch warning.

What a frustrating season for Mercedes and Hamilton. Looks like it’s gonna be a seasonal fight between Leclerc and Verstappen…?

Syrup.

Ben’s off work today, which isn’t the usual so we decided to go out for brunch. We packed up little lady and drove down to Main St. in Norman. I let Ben decide between Neighborhood Jam and Syrup and he chose the latter!

Tove enjoyed her banana stick while mom and dad got to eat. I ordered the home sweet homa with crunchy French toast 🤤.

If you’re into sweets, Syrup is definitely the brunch you’re looking for they have so many different waffle, pancake, and French toast options. Plus their coffee menu is LEGIT as well.

Happy 420

Amused by my Weedmaps trophies 🏆 this evening. This is the first 420 in recent history I haven’t been working with cannabis and it feels. Not sure how it feels, I just feel it.

Grateful for all cannabis has given me and I’m super thankful on a day like today that I am able to medicate responsibly and legally.

I think it’s utterly wrong that there are still people incarcerated while I can flaunt and celebrate 4/20 as a holiday. If you, like me, are privileged enough I challenge you to check out the last prisoner project if you haven’t already. Donate, educate yourself, & spread the word!

Work From Anywhere

Decided to meet Michael at the Dell campus in OKC today to work “in person” since we’ve got the option to do so.

Was a bit of a ghost town but good to get out of the house nonetheless.

I’ll be back up there again on Tuesday next week to meet some of my classmates in person for the first time …after having been on zoom together for 8 hours a day the last THREE months!

This virtual world really is becoming reality.

Hoppy Easter

We found one of those eggs on lawn during our morning walk yesterday and I ignored it assuming they were from a parent who had set up an Easter egg hunt for their child.

Turns out our neighborhood is full of children, and well the above image makes that more true than I had initially believed to be the case.

Anyways- Happy Easter from Oklahoma 🤪😅🐣

Lunch Win

They say pregnancy changes your brain chemistry but does it alter your ability to cook as well? Cause I’ve never been able to make an omelette in my life before and today.. voila!

I set out to make a quick scramble during my lunch break but the base started well enough I figured I would give it a go at making an omelette. Worst case scenario is a scramble anyways!

Somehow it worked. End result being a very yummy thyme & gruyere omelette.
