Most seedling planted. Lots of weeds uprooted. Baked some blueberry muffins and made a zucchini bake. Not a bad Saturday I don’t think. Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.
Todays shopping. Baby spinach, basil, birdseye chilli and various tomatoes. Yesterday I bought some rocket from the supermarket. Only to go out to the garden today and find that my 4 rocket plants are a lot larger than the last time I checked. Note to self: pay more attention to my garden. Could have saved a few dollars, not to mention the packaging it came in. Looking forward to been outdoors next! Get my seedings in and pull some more weeds up.
This is the first I’ve posted in a very looooong time. I hadn’t posted for ages because every time I tried to upload photos my computer froze. So thought I’d give it another go today.
Have just spent a happy afternoon in my kitchen. First time I’ve made lemon curd. Successfully lemony and delicious. And a batch of banana and bran muffins. Care to guess what Em is taking to work for lunch tomorrow?
The lemon curd recipe comes from the My Petite Kitchen Cookbook (which I love) by Eleanor Ozich and the muffin recipe comes from Dan Lepards Short & Sweet.
2 Mountain bread
Spinach & Rocket leaves
2 eggs, scrambled
Pepper & dried parsley
Splash of milk
1 bacon, or 2 rindless
I double layered 2 mountain bread because they can tear but feel free to use any wrap of your choice. On your wrap add a generous handful of spinach & rocket leaves.
Crack 2 eggs into a bowl adding pepper & parsley to taste then a splash of milk before whisking. Cut bacon into 2 or 3 pieces. Slice preferred amount of onion & about 3 think slices of tomato.
Heat the egg pan on a medium heat with a little oil and the bacon pan to about 3/4 heat. Add egg to the pan, mixing as it cooks. Add bacon to the other pan first, then lightly spray onion with oil before adding it in with the bacon.
Lightly spray the slices of tomato with oil and grind some pepper onto each. When the eggs are nearly done, turn the bacon & onion before moving the eggs to one side of the pan. Put the tomato slices in with the egg, oil side down, just to heat through. If you want to spray & pepper the other side of the tomato before turning over.
Now just add the bacon & onion on top of the spinach, then the eggs and tomato slice.
At the start of Summer I wrote a post about only eating meat once day. How ever that self imposed restriction wasn’t really working for me. So I have changed tact. Instead of restricting myself, I’m going to be more aware of what food I am buying and where it has come from. I found this website to be a wealth of information for anyone in Australia.
On the first of December I decided to try and eat meat and dinner time. 7 days I did fine. Today however I woke up in one of those average moods. I already had plans of meeting a friend for lunch at a local cafe. I thought my mood may be a lack of something in my diet so for lunch I had toasted GF bread, on top of this was piled avocado, rocket, bacon, a poached egg, grilled tomato and hollandaise sauce. My mood improved at lunch (which was delicious by the way) only to go down hill again when I came home. I have decided therefore, that my average mood is rather due to a weekend of doing nothing. Partly due to the weather and partly due to my laziness.
Hoping everyone had a slightly happier or at least more productive weekend than I. Take care.
