Kiss the cook

Valentine's day proved to be rather meal-centric. It began with Hal summoning some scrumptious chocolate chip pancakes from the stove on Saturday morning and ended with some merry gentlemen cooking dinner later that evening.

EDIT: Lo stole the show with her fabulous Texas sheet cake (which was gone before I had a chance to taste) and succulent chocolate-covered strawberries.

Not willing to let the spirit of from-scratch cooking die, I fixed some eggs for Sunday morning and ended up with a final result that I was rather proud of:
  1. Cracked two eggs into a hot pan of melted butter and lime juice.
  2. Immediately seasoned them with pepper and garlic salt so that the spices would cook into the yolks.
  3. Flipped the eggs once they had solidified a bit.
  4. Sprinkled an Italian blend of cheeses (mozzarella, provolone, romano, fontino and asiago) on top. Flipped again.
  5. Repeated on the other side. Flipped.
  6. Reapplied seasonings on top accompanied by a couple of drops of lime juice in the centers.
  7. A second layer of cheese.
  8. Served with buttered toast and sliced Roma tomato.
