Labor Day Weekend, New Pictures Hanging, and the latest cookin's

Our Labor Day Weekend was quiet. I think we're the only people in this city whose family is not within two hours of driving. So we mostly hung out at home. Went to the Farmer's Market Saturday morning, did some other shopping, too. Monday Daniel studied for a test and I hung up the frames that we bought Saturday.

I'm so happy with the way it turned out. Finally, the one wall in the family room isn't naked anymore!

Now, the next spot on my mind is the eye-sore fireplace. Any suggestions? (And does anyone know who stole the mantle and the cover?)

We also enjoyed another meal out of The Newlywed Kitchen. It was a lighter dish from the vegetable dish section. I've done stuff like this many times before, but never thought to put an egg on top.

The book suggested asparagus and sliced grape tomatoes. Asparagus is something we hit or miss on. Sometimes we could eat it multiple nights during the week, and sometimes we gag over it. :-P This was one of the latter weeks. So I used green beans instead. Green beans are always good.

Drizzle your choice vegetables (zucchini and squash make excellent selections, too) with 2 Tbsp olive oil, some salt and pepper, and lightly cover (or drench if you're a cheese head) with fresh Parmesan. Bake at 400F for about 15 minutes.

In the meantime fry or scramble eggs for each portion. And place on top of the veggies when everything is finished.

I made biscuits too, because I'm a carb fanatic. The meal was delicious. Light, but satisfying.
