for personal use

Well, this little goodie just does not fit in with any project I am working on at the moment so I'm giving it to you. If you have purchased my Digital Dad Kit from the SophiaSarducci Shop - it would go perfect with that!

I'd like to take a moment here to acknowledge and say thank you to the ladies who promote my blog and giveaways. I am so grateful. I wish I were more diligent to let you know. Just off the top of my head I have to say that Maria at Digi Free tirelessly promotes my freebies and I still get a total thrill every time I see my items listed. Next would come IkeaGoddess, AmyW, Shirley, Valinda, my sister in law Judy and of COURSE KimB who brags me up all the time too - and I just want to make sure that you each know how much I appreciate it. I am sure there are very many more of you out there and its a big reminder to me that my blog is so much more rewarding because of you. I've had so many emails thanking me for some encouragement I may have posted etc, but it goes both ways! I can't tell you how many times a comment or thought or suggestion has lifted up the corners of my mouth, put a glimmer in my day and joy in my heart. Thank you all so much.

If you have promoted me, and I might not be aware of it - why not leave me a comment so I can say thank you, personally?

Another SSR (Simple Summer Recipe)

This recipe was created out of a need to use up some ingredients in my pantry. I admit that Mr. Miles is not crazy on it, but not because its not delicious, for it IS. Its something to do with the bread/egg thing. He can eat scrambled and hard-over, but not soft boiled, over easy or poached. He can eat an egg and toast, but not egg cooked with toast. He can eat Quiche, or a fritatta with a crust, but not this. He gave it an honest effort tho.

Bacon and Egg Strata

8 eggs
1/4 cup mayo
6 tbsp water
dash mustard
1/2 lb bacon
2 tomatoes
2 cups fresh herbs
1/2 inch slices of french bread
2 cups feta cheese

Butter the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13" glass baking dish. (well it COULD be a metal one, only its prettier this way) Layer the bottom with bread slices. Beat the eggs, water, mustard and mayo together. Pour 1/2 mixture over the bread. Layer the herbs ontop of this. Slice the tomatoes into 1/4 inch thick slices and layer. Crumble feta and spread over this. Pour the remaining egg mixture overtop. Place another layer of bread slices. Arrange bacon slices over the entire top, to cover. PEPPER the bacon with fresh ground pepper (ok, I am a pepper-aholic, I admit it) Pop in a 400 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes. If bacon edges start browning too much during cooking, lay strips of tin foil over them.

This dish is best hot - either right when you make it, or reheated.

You could also assemble this the night before, and put it in the fridge, baking it in the morning.
