What is something that seemed like the absolute height of luxury when you were younger?
For me, it was owning a house with stairs.
My grandparents on my dad’s side had a big house with citrus trees and a pool, and potpurri in the guest bedrooms, but most importantly, they had stairs.
These stairs were carpeted, which was important because they provided a soft landing for our little bums as we slid- kathunk, kathunk, kathunk all the way down the stairs.
Over and over and over again.
And now, I’m all grown up, and I have a house with carpeted stairs! But the biggest downside of being all grown up is that I’m a heck of a lot heavier than I was when I was five, and my poor tailbone just can’t take the abuse anymore!
Treet and eggs is a Christmas morning tradition that came from my dad’s side of the family. Every year, after stockings but before presents, we’d have treet and eggs (sometimes spam and eggs or bacon and eggs, if we couldn’t find treet) and Cinnabon cinnamon rolls that we picked up on Christmas Eve.
These days we don’t always have the cinnamon rolls (although there’s usually something sweet – like these sticky toffee pancakes!), but the treet and eggs are a yearly must!
Treet and Eggs
A Day family original
- 1 can treet or spam, diced
- 5 eggs
- a dash of heavy cream or milk
- freshly ground black pepper
- Heat the pan over medium heat. Pan-fry the treet until browned on all sides.
- Whisk the eggs with a dash of cream until smooth. Scramble eggs into the treet until they are done to your liking. Season with pepper, and serve.
