Eggs

8 stemmed spinach leaves
2 large croissants, halved horizontally

Filling


½ large apple, cored, peeled, and quartered
4 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup brie cheese (about 2 ounces) in ½-inch chunks
2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
Dash of freshly grated nutmeg to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Arrange 4 spinach leaves on the bottom half of each croissant.

To make the filling: Cut each apple quarter crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. Beat the eggs lightly with a fork in a small bowl, then add the milk and beat lightly again; set aside.

Melt the butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the apple slices; cook, stirring occasionally, until the slices are nearly tender, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low; add the egg mixture. As it begins to set, use a spatula to move the cooked portion to the side, allowing the uncooked portions to spread over the bottom. (This will take about 1 minute.)

While the eggs are still very moist, reduce the heat to low; dot with the Brie and sprinkle with the chives, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Fold some of the cooked eggs over the brie so it will melt. Remove the pan from the heat before the eggs become either dry or browned on the edges. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

Spoon half of the cooked egg mixture over the spinach on each croissant half. Top with the other half of the croissant. Serve hot, with forks.

    Orcutt Family Starts Petition to Change County Ordinance

    An Orcutt family is fighting to keep their dogs from being euthanized, and is now trying to change a county ordinance on aggressive dogs. The family has an online petition spreading their message on the internet in an effort to get the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's attention.

    Peggy Henning remembers the day her family welcomed Daisy and Duke into their family like it was yesterday.

    "They immediately just became part of the family," said Henning. "They were very friendly with all the guests we had coming over."

    But things changed when Daisy and Duke got loose. They liked chasing cats.

    "Dogs are pack animals and that is their default instinct," said Henning. "If they are bonded or litter mates, it intensifies that. They would get out of the confines of our house or yard and this instinct would come to the surface."
