|Toasted English Muffin, Prosciutto and Ruffly Poached Eggs|
Achieving the "ruffly look" is a small production - Tear off two pieces of plastic wrap, put one on top of the other, lightly brush the top piece with olive oil, gently press the wrap inside of a tea cup, crack an egg into the plastic wrap-lined tea cup, forage through several drawers in search of kitchen twine, gather up the wrap around the egg, and then tie the pouch with twine. Repeat with each additional egg to be poached. Submerge said pouches in simmering water for 5-6 minutes, remove pouches to counter top, snip off plastic just below twine, unwrap poached eggs, and transfer to waiting English muffin halves, toast, asparagus spears, or salad. Add freshly ground pepper and parsley sprigs and serve.

Speaking of elegant and lovely, the annual Coronado Flower Show, the largest tented flower show in the nation, took place recently. The home front division competition excites the Coronado community and inspires everyone to spruce up their gardens and beautify the city in preparation for the flower show. Here are some photos from my self-guided tour of the top 25 home fronts. You can see the full album here.
Cheers, and have a great weekend!
