As a teenager I worked at McDonald’s. During the summer I was able to work the breakfast shift and it became my favorite time to work. I liked cooking there (big surprise) and getting to make the egg McMuffins. When I saw this egg ring at Crate and Barrel it took me right back to those fond memories of making egg McMuffins and since I make them all the time at home for my family I had to have this egg ring. The one I used at McDonald’s was actually 6 of these rings all attached and of course sometimes you would have two of them filled with eggs so you could turn out a dozen breakfast sandwiches in a matter of minutes. It was big batch cooking made easy!
Top with a slice of cheese and you have a protein packed breakfast sandwich that is portable! Wrap it up in foil to keep it warm and take it with you. No drive -thru required! This is also a quick and easy dinner option.

A Nutmeg Notebook Recipe
Our weekend was a super duper cooking extravaganza! Since we are hosting 13 people for Thanksgiving this year hubby Tom wanted to practice cooking a turkey on his new Traeger grill. We bought a 21 pound turkey – the biggest we have ever had and invited a few friends over for a pre-holiday meal on Sunday!
We cooked all day Sunday and had a great time in the kitchen. No cooking blunders or disasters except for one minor glitch with the new tablecloth. Hubby Tom took the new tablecloth out of the package and carefully ironed it only to discover as we were putting it on the table that it had a blotch in the center of it! He made a mad dash back to Bed Bath and Beyond to make an exchange! All was well with the new one and we were able to set the table in time for our guests.
Of course you can expect a post about our meal, and some new product reviews as well as a recipe or two you might enjoy for your own Thanksgiving celebration. I didn’t get a lot of photos as it is difficult to cook, be a hostess and photograph food all at the same time!
We usually go out to eat and to a movie on Halloween. Since we have so many leftovers from yesterday,we might just eat here at home and then go to a movie. How many of you live where the snow storms hit? I remember as a kid growing up in Nebraska going trick or treating in the snow! We put our costumes on under our Winter coats!
Don’t eat too much candy tonight!
