for breakfast on Neen's birthday, we had.......


CORNMEAL FRIED EGGS!

I got an early start this morning and the sun was shining! Over to my friend's house and it is her birthday!!  She was getting phone calls and Facebook likes and cards everywhere.  Daughter Julie made us cornmeal fried eggs and were they ever good.  I will tell you how she did it in a minute, but first want to pass along her birthday wish to her Mom that she posted on Facebook...

Celebrating my wonderful Mom's 84 years on this earth! She has raised
7 incredible people (she's still raising me) she is Granny to 17...a
beloved sister to 6....favored Aunt to ALOT...and a great friend to so
many!! I am so thankful for the role model she is to me and my wish is
that my daughter will some day admire me as I do her!!

I had to read it out loud to Neen because Julie was tearing up, but isn't it sweet.

Now for the eggs,  she covered the bottom of the skillet with olive oil, tossed in cornmeal mix just enough to mix, let it brown just a bit and then broke the eggs into it.  Turn the eggs over, they have a nice brown cornmeal crust.  Neen only recently told us about cornmeal eggs.  She has been keeping them a secret from us for years, the very idea!

I hope you are having a good day and that you have good friends like Neen and Julie.
