I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I certainly did. It was just the right amount of lazy and productive, plus an amazing lunch with some fabulous ladies! Things are really great right now and the next month is going to bring some huge changes to my life. I've become one of those people I usually make fun of who says things like "life is good". It's bizarre! Another bizarre thing is that besides an insane amount of cookie baking last week, my kitchen is hardly being used right now. I haven't made much besides last week's quinoa and I'm ok with that. I'm too busy enjoying the world around me so posting will continue to be light perhaps until my "staycation" next week. Thankfully this recipe hardly needs any cooking and it's really more of a method than an actual recipe. It's wonderfully simple and made me so happy that I had this twice this past weekend. You really can't go wrong with creamy cheese and eggs and salty prosciutto. The only thing this needs upon completion is some crusty bread to sop up the egg yolks..and of course a glass of wine!
