NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
I have been having a hard time deciding what to cook today, it has been such a hot week. My husband suggested 'breakfast' food, and it reminded me of this delicious scrambled egg recipe from Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten.
SLOW COOKED SCRAMBLED EGGS with GOAT CHEESE
- 16 extra-large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups milk or half and half
- 1 1 2/ teaspoons kosher salt
- 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
- 6 ounces fresh goat cheese, such as Montrachet, crumbled
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
Whisk the eggs in a bowl with the milk, salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large saute or omelet pan. Add the eggs and cook until desired doneness, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add goat cheese, chives and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Stir and allow eggs to sit for 30 seconds, until cheese begins to melt. Serve immediately.
