This weekend went by crazy fast! I had so much planned, though I didn't get to do all of it, that there wasn't a free moment until I passed out in my bed at midnight on Sunday. I feel like this weekend was my first reminder of what the holidays are all about...spending awesome, fun-filled days (and evenings) with friends and family eating waaay too many cookies and becoming more sleep deprived with every late night viewing of "A Christmas Story." I woke up this morning exhausted, but smiling. Once I get my pictures loaded, I'll show you some of the fun things we did! :-)
For now, I'll share a yummy family recipe my mom made for us...
She had been craving it for some time and decided to make some this weekend. I hadn't had it since I was a kid, so it was nice to try it again. It's a really great starter for an Italian meal...though we had it before Chinese....go figure.
6 cups chicken stock
1 tsp oregano
3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp bread crumbs
pinch of garlic powder
1. Beat the eggs, cheese, bread crumbs, and garlic in a small bowl.
2. Bring the stock to a boil, add oregano, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes.
3. Increase the heat to medium, slowly stir in the egg mixture a little at a time.
4. Boil 3 to 5 minutes and serve.
