It’s Tuesday, the weather is amazing and it’s the perfect time to cook, make some good food and some unforgettable memories.
When summer arrives I always think back to my summers in Greece and Italy growing up. All the amazing food I got to taste, and all the amazing people I got to meet. In Italy, I especially remember going to the local market on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Every Saturday people from the village would go to the market to not only shop but to socialize with one another. The kids were playing in the streets, the men were standing in groups talking, some smoking pipe, others with a glass of wine. The women would talk to each other, as well as be on the lookout for and buy the best groceries they could get their hands on for the larger family dinner they would have later that very night. On Sundays after church, they would once again gather at the local town’s square( piazza) to socialize and buy groceries for their larger family Sunday dinners later that day. As i’m writing this I can even remember how wonderful the fresh groceries smelled, the Parma ham, the fresh vegetables, and the wine. It was an amazing time we had, and I’m sure we will be back someday.
Greece, I often went to Greece for two weeks during the summer with my wonderful mom. I remember the smell of Tzatziki, greek salad, salt water, and fried calamari( octopus) Like it was yesterday. I must be honest and tell you that even though I’ve been countless of times to Greece I’ve never ever tasted calamari, but my mom always ordered it, and that is why I think of calamari when I think about Greece. We had the most amazing lamb chops, souvlaki( Greek skewers), tzatziki, greek salads, moussaka and much more. I love eating greek food and being in Greece. I miss Greece a lot, and hopefully, I soon get to go back there. That would be amazing.
Today’s recipe is as easy as scrambled eggs. I love scrambled eggs, and it’s, in fact, perfect for any occasion. You can serve it at breakfast with some smoked salmon, sausages or bacon. If not breakfast you can serve it for brunch, lunch or you can make it as a midnight snack. Either way, it’s perfect. This is a recipe that my mom always makes, and the recipe has been in my family for a long time and If I’m not mistaken I think the recipe used to be my grandmothers.
Ingredients to Hetty’s Scrambled eggs:
12 Tbs of water( or milk – Optional.)
Freshly chopped chives
Directions on how to make Hetty’s scrambled eggs:
- Whisk 12 eggs and 12 TBS of water into a medium/large mixing bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and freshly chopped chives. Whisk it all good together.
- Put some butter into a pan, when the butter is melted add the egg mixture in. Use a spatula and a fork to slowly move the egg mixture around the pan so it doesn’t stick. Turn the heat down to medium/low and keep going back and forth with the fork and spatula until you get a nice smooth and slightly jumpy scrambled eggs. Put the scrambled eggs into a serving bowl and garnish with some freshly chopped chives or parsley.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I and my family do.
I hope ya’ll have an amazing Tuesday so far, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a new post.
