Our outside back porch only had a plain ceramic fixture with a spot type light bulb hanging downwards from it. We switched that spot light bulb to a more efficient bulb and had covered it up with a cheap round globe... it was nothing special. This new globe instead would fit right in!
WOWZER!!!! I think it fits right in for our 100 year old home.
Now next on my list. How many times do you see good recipes on Facebook, but never get around to trying them? I decided that I wanted to try this one:
So I set about making them this morning... first I gathered all of the ingredients. I happened to have some frozen ham chunks leftover from Christmas Dinner. I used a little larger muffin pan instead of the standard cupcake pan with 12 smaller cups. I thawed the frozen hash browns in the microwave so they were soft and pliable.
I sprayed the muffin pan with Pam (I think next time I will give it a double coat)
Next, I mixed up the thawed potato pieces with some butter and seasonings. I used a rubber spatula to pack them into the muffin tins. I think next time i will find a drinking glass about the diameter and use that to pack them tighter.
I baked them at 400 degrees for 12 minutes
and they came out pretty good.
While they were baking I was chopping up the ham. Then I dehydrated some dried onions in a bit of water in the microwave. I drained off the water and broke three eggs into the onions, stirring them all up good.
By now the potato muffins were done baking.
I placed the ham chunks in each cup and then poured over the egg and onion mixture. Topped each one off with a clump of shredded cheese, a sprinkle of pepper, and a dab of parsley for color!
Into the oven they went for 15 more minutes.
While that was baking, I did a quick cleanup. I like baking in this section along the edge on my cabinets, right near the stove. Luckily we placed the pull-out trash bin right here in this handy location in the lower cabinets.
On swipe with a sponge into the trash and all is clean again.
15 minutes later the breakfast muffins were sizzling and done perfectly!!
Boy they sure smelled good!!!
They stuck a little bit coming out....
it never looks as good as the pics in recipe books-----
There weren't any complaints as we made up a few pieces if toast....Voila! Breakfast was done!
I think today we will be doing some more projects around the house. Already I have the laundry in the washer and dryer, the bedding is changed, my quilting shows are recorded from PBS to a dvd, and some bills are paid. Maybe this afternoon I can get some quilting done too.
Meanwhile, two little doggers are enjoying the sunshine rainbows
coming in the leaded glass windows...
