Oh man, I'm so out of shape and stuffed full of food- I tried to shovel the driveway earlier, and I could only go about 1/2 hour before giving up. Stupid heavy snow.

It's been a very different Christmas this year- instead of the usual visiting that happens on Christmas eve, my one aunt came over on the 23rd, the other came over last night instead of us all heading out to another place for our traditional spaghetti feast and today we didn't head out to the country- we had planned to go tomorrow, but with all the snow the road to the farm hasn't been plowed yet. Maybe Sunday? IDK.

Also, with all of these changing plans mom and I have lots of food that's not going to get eaten. We're figuring out how to save stuff for later. I've already put to use the three (well okay, I only used the one) cookbooks I got as gifts. Also, I got some ramekins, a meat thermometer and a titanium cheese grater. Also, a wooden stick that is apparently better to use when stirring pots? IDK, but I approve of getting kitchen stuff for Christmas, since I'm often the one trying new things. Such as a baked egg in my new ramekin.

Baked egg

Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease ramekin(s) with butter. Add 1 whole egg and 1 egg white to ramekin. Add 1 Tbsp of milk (whole milk or cream preferred, but anything works. Well, maybe not chocolate or buttermilk or anything like that.) Top with some grated cheese and/or pepper, to taste.

Place ramekin(s) on baking sheet in oven for 10-14 minutes, depending on whether you enjoy soft and runny, or firmer egg yolks. Make toast for dipping , or whatever. Maybe you don't like toast, skip this part. Remove eggs, from oven, wait a minute or so for it to cool slightly.

Using oven gloves, place ramekin on dish and serve with toast (or whatever). Enjoy!

I used my nifty new, fine grater and put some applewood smoked cheddar on my egg and it was delicious. Mmm.

I also got The Umbrella Academy: Dallas and homg. That. Was. Awesome. There were several moments where I'd read a page, go "holy shit!" then turn the page and shout it again. Mom is a little whatever about it, but she keeps asking me how I can read them because she has a hard time reading thought and speech bubbles.

I'm still loving the spindle, and I'm getting pretty good at it already. I don't know what the sales will be like tomorrow at the bookstore, but I'm tempted to walk down to the mall and see if I can find Respect the Spindle or some other spinning book to keep me occupied for the next week or so.
