Therefore Christ, after he had finished this purchase by death, rises from the dead, to fulfill the end of his purchase. This matter God the Father had committed unto him, that he might, as Lord of all, manage all to his own purposes: Rom. xiv. 9. “For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
Happy Good Friday all! I am so ever thankful to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord this weekend. Recently, I have been meditating over the words of Jonathan Edwards because he is able to express how the death and resurrection resonate within me.
I love the meaning behind Easter and I love celebrating it with friends and family. It is purely serendipitous that many of those celebrations take place over brunch. I love brunch. Brunchy, brunch, brunch! These soft boiled eggs and garlic toast are what I will be making this Sunday morning for my husband and I. Enjoy!
Toast with Garlic Spread
- Loaf of good farm bread
- 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 3-4 large heads of garlic
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut the top end off of all of the heads of garlic leaving on the papery exterior. Coat the exposed end of garlic with 1 Tablespoon of the olive oil. Place the garlic cut-side down on a metal pan and place in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to sit until cool to the touch. Remove the papery exterior from garlic and place roasted cloves in a food processor. Add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, parmesan, salt and pepper to the food processor as well and pulse until completely incorporated and smooth (30 seconds). Turn oven heat to broil. Slice bread to desired thickness and smear with 1-2 Tablespoons of garlic spread. Place sliced bread under broiler for 1-2 minutes until toasted and bubbly. Great for dipping in a soft boiled egg!
Soft Boiled Eggs
- 3-4 eggs
- bowl of cold water
- 10-12 ice cubes
Soft boiled eggs are elegant, simple and in my opinion, underutilized in the brunch world.
Bring a small pot of water to a boil. With a slotted spoon gently lower whole egg into water. (I only do 3-4 at a time) Boil for exactly six minutes and immediately place eggs into ice water bath for a couple of minutes. Remove half of shell and devour!
