One last foodie entry...

I seem to do the majority of cooking on Saturday morn, and this recipe is no exception...

Huevos Rancheros
(per person...just because you never know how many pple want to eat...)

1/2 c. mixed greens (mesclun mix)

1 egg
1 T. sweet milk
1 T. buttermilk
salt and pepper to taste
a dash or two of thyme (whole spice is better than ground in this case)
1/4 c. salsa (whatever your fave is)

Wash greens, an allow to dry while cooking eggs. Heat saucepan; spray, or grease with butter. Mix all ingredients except salsa together. After pan is hot, pour in egg mixture, and begin to set them. Pour salsa in pan over eggs, and cook eggs, scrambled-style, until salsa is no longer runny. Place greens on a plate; pour huevos over greens. Enjoy!

Last time, I tried it with all buttermilk. It was a bit stringier than usual, but the flavor was marvelous. So, I'm recommending 1/2 sweet milk; 1/2 buttermilk until I find out differently...

I know this sounds weird--but it was so good. Or maybe it's just a "Marie Thing"-- there are quite a few of those, ya know... lol!


Half-Buttermilk was good--but I kinda miss the extra cheesy kinda flavour full buttermilk gives! It's still up for debate.

Another word of wisdom: if you're using fresh thyme, be careful! It's easy to get to much--eek...
