I have 6 eggs I want to use up (this evening, if I get home early enough) - what should I make?

I think I want:
- baked sweet thing
- easy!
- no packaged mixes
- no chewy cookies
- preferably something that I can munch on for the rest of the week....

I used to bake cakes and cookies and bread and such a lot but haven't really done much of anything in a couple of years now....

and work has been pure hell for a couple of weeks and will be for a couple more :sob:

make anything fabulous lately?

There's not a lot of recipes that call for six eggs unless they're custard based. This one sounded kind of yummy. Jasper White's Maple Sugar Creme Caramel from Classic Home Desserts by Richard Sax (which is a fabulous book, btw!)

That might not really be what you're looking for though.

By week do you mean work week or calendar week? If you mean work week you can have 1 scrambled egg for breakfast every morning for the next 6 days. :poke: no baking involved.

How about rice krispies treats?

Marco, you don't cook much do you? :poke:
There's no eggs in rice krispies treats. Though, she could have those with her scrambled eggs I suppose.

I think Ron has the winning recipe! Thank you :)
Just didn't get home early enough to do anything today. Just where did the day go....?:confused:
But no matter, I can't decided whether or not to put nuts or choc chips or something in it too....
