Buttered Eggs Wait for No Man

I really splurged this morning on Fathers' Day breakfast - Old English Buttered Eggs. My neighbor gave me some butter and heavy cream last night as she was going away on vacation. I already had eggs, potatoes and raspberries, so it all went together. She even gave me Mascarpone, something I never use. I spread that on the English muffin. Cliff wouldn't go for it, spreading the butter instead. Mrs. Charles Darwin's recipe for Buttered Eggs is VERY filling!

Time, tide, and buttered eggs wait for no man…”* he must have been thinking, as he began eating before the cook had even seated herself. *John Masefield
