Eggs 'a la Bunny
Anytime bunny makes his famous egg roll is a special occasion for me. It is like any hard work I did during the week is instantly paid off. We both brought food to the table today, him with his egg, me with my muffins below. I posted a long time ago about his eggs, but here it is in better photos and a little different. He first learned how to make this egg roll from a Youtube video of a Japanese woman teaching how to make rolled tamago (egg). There is a technique and he uses cooking chopsticks. He filled the middle with spinach, gorgonzola cheese, and bacon. the gorgonzola melts perfectly, leaving a creamy spread consistency. I love these eggs because they are light, fluffy, and moist, but not runny. The egg almost seems like a crepe. We slice them sushi roll style. I eat the pieces very slowly savoring each bite. I know that sounds silly, but I cannot tell you enough how happy these little rolls make me. It was a happy morning in the kitchen. The weather has been awful, so projects in the kitchen have seemed like a good idea instead of going anywhere. Today has been so relaxing, just lounging around, doing a little housework, but not much else!
**UPDATE** I just watched the youtube video again and they have added some crazy techno music to the video, sorry about all the racket!!!!!
