Hello! Love is truly in the air. Unfortunately for me, in our house, aside from love, we also have virus in the air. My poor little valentine has been vommiting since yesterday. I am taking a leave today so I can look after him. This is one of those days when I wish we’d win the Lotto so I don’t need to work.
Anyhoot, before he wakes up, let me post our Valentine creations last Saturday.
Here is my take on the egg-in-a-hole recipe that I read in Yummy a few years back.
Well, there are a lot of things that could go wrong:
1. Your favorite brand of whole wheat bread is out of stock for two days.
2. Your bread is too small or your cookie cutter is too big. I just made a heart using a knife.
3. Your egg is too big for the hole, making egg whites spill over.
4. The egg yolk breaks
5. The bread is burnt but the egg is not yet thoroughly cooked.
After several attempts, here is our early valentine day breakfast.
To make hearts out of ketchup, just make two dots and use a toothpick, in my case, I used the tip of Aki’s new paintbrush, to draw the pointed end.
Now for the hearts that I cut from the bread using the cookie cutter ( I was not able to use the hole-d bread because the sides were too thin), I had a simple painting activity for Aki using water and food color.
When Aki was finally happy with his work, I borrowed the hearts and cooked them. The unpainted side was dipped in beaten egg while the colorful side was brushed with butter. Once the egg was cooked through, I sprinkled confectioner’s sugar.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
