we celebrated the boys 1/2 birthday today! in lieu of cake we had 1/2 donuts. we have been pretty good at limiting the boys sweets so i didnt want to do a regular cake this time. unglazed cake donuts seemed to do the trick though.

we got some fresh eggs from friends last weekend so i wanted to make sure i cooked something worthy of fresh eggs. this recipe was another two parter. the stewed tomatos were so easy and yummy on their own. i think i will definitely be taking advantage of our fresh tomatos this summer. they would be great as a marinara type dip, on pasta, or even with rice.
the shirred eggs in stewed tomatos with ham chips were good. i would have never tried them otherwise. however, i dont know if i used the right dish. we ate them with a side of grits but i think in the future i might make the grits, top them with stewed tomatos and a fried egg. i think i would like the texture of the fried egg more than what was produced in the dish. overall a winning flavor combination!

glen requested this cake months ago when it was featured on one of the Chef's Life episodes. luckily the recipe was in the cookbook. i would never choose to make a cake with beets but it turned out well and i will definitely remake the chocolate cream cheese icing!
