Steak Skewers
This is the recipe I'm trying this week for dinner group. They're ready to throw on the grill with that yummy herb sauce. I'm hopeful. I did a few chicken too, and some corn sauteed with shallots and basil as a side.

Ham, cheese, onion, and spinach frittata
We made this frittata for brunch (I only use a word as fancy as brunch because we didn't eat 'till like 10 and I dared to add salad) on Saturday. Or day one of conference. It's just eggs, some cheddar and ham on the girls half, and sauteed onions and spinach added into ours. I cooked it in my pan 'till the bottom set, then stuck it in the oven on broil for like 10 minutes.

Papa's Loaf
And this was breakfast Sunday. This is my most memorable conference weekend breakfast growing up. I wish I'd gotten a better photo of it. It looks a little less appetizing than I'd like. We called it Papa's Loaf, because my "papa" made it. He was from Argentina (step-grandpa technically) and I think it was something traditional for him... either way... I LOVE it... it's pure nostalgia for me... and not an exact recipe.

Sourdough round cut in half with most of the inside bread ripped out.

9 eggs whisked with 1/2 to 1 cup parmesan cheese, some salt and pepper, and some chopped parsley for the pretty. Was I supposed to put garlic mom? Something may have been missing...

Cook it in a pan letting the bottom set, then tipping your pan to let the runny eggs fall to the bottom until the whole thing is cooked in one round loaf.

Line each side of sourdough round with lots of grated cheddar cheese and a layer or two of ham.

Put egg loaf in the middle

Cook in oven at like 400 for 20-30 minutes. Throw some foil over the top if you don't like your bread too crispy.

Slice and serve.

I love food.

yummyeeeeee! Yes, I think some garlic is included....and I too love conference weekend, but didn't have nearly the food fest (: Although I and Dad had lunch at Tom Hamm's Lighthouse and I had the BEST clam chowder EVER! We must go there just for that and their bread.
