Ahoy there me maties…aaarrhh… LOL
I wish I was a pirate sailing the 7 seas, but alas Im chained to a desk instead! Guess thats still a good reason to have some rum??
Thank you for all my blogaversary wishes – seems the celebration lasted a week!! Thank you for all the virtual cake and sharing!
Where to start!?
Breakfast always a good place I guess!
This morning (yes this morning) I made myself some breakfast, seeing as I was wide awake just before 6am (normal day for me. I have to get up at 06h30, and end up dragging myself out of bed anytime from 7am). I was all inspired and hungry and of cause in the mood for something eggy. And I decided to make some French Toast – with a slight twist.
For 1 person
Milk (almost equal amount to egg)
Seasoning (steers, aromat)
2 slices bread (brown, white, wholewheat, Low GI, Best of both…etc)
Heat a pan, with a good spray of “(S)Pray and Cook”
In a deep dish, mix the egg, milk & seasoning till well combined (scramble egg style).
Dip each slice in the eggy mix (both sides) you can make them soggy, lightly coated, what ever suits your fancy. Just remember the more egg the bread absorbs the longer the frying/cooking time!
Pop the eggy bread into the pan…tsss…tssss… and sprinkle the top side of the bread with grated parmesan.
When the underside is beautifully browned, turn over (with the parmesan side under) and again fry until browned/ done. (this takes about 2 -3 min per side)
The parmesan makes a lovely crunchy cheesey coating!
If you are anything like me smother spread some tomato sauce over and a sprinkle of Aromat… You can still taste the cheese, and get the crispy crunch of it!
Inspiration had the Biscuit Challenge last week – which I attempted! It was a toss up between Pinks ChocChip Bikkies and Sous Chef’s Ginger Biscuits (that would have become cinnamon biscuits, since I really dont like ginger). ChocChips won, but I did add 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon… and totally forgot to ‘flatten’ the dough balls, and (another AND) my choc chips, turned out to be chocolate disks (the big R2 sized ‘drops’) which meant I had to chop these smaller too before adding to the dough.
Another mistake (on my part, beside now the flatten thing)..I didnt cream the butter properly, which would teach me, since I quicky wanted to make this between the 2 rugby games on Saturday afternoon – the whole swarm of bees thing did not help!!
But they still turned out awesomely yummy, just have to open wide to take yummy bites!!
I will definately try these again – and Sous’s recipe, just when I have enough time and no one shooshing me because its kick-off time (I mean really, how do you make an electric beater go softly???)
So now About a Peanut…
Some of you already knows, and others are probably guessing and a few well you are completely in the dark!! Let me shed some light…
I know its probably a bit early to tell the whole world, but its difficult to keep the news to one self!! So here goes:
Bill Gates have finally sent me some money for the email scheme incentive thingie and Im now a billionaire myself and will be retiring in about 40yrs… (If you believe than, please post me you email address below, I’ve got a cousin in Nigeria who needs to move some funds…LOL)
Okay so Bill Gates is not sending me no money, but I will probably retire in about 40 years or less…until my zimmerframe is all rusted up..
So the BIG SECRET/NEWS is….We are having a Peanut!! (aka We* are pregnant). Still 1st Trimester, but all going well sofar!
*phew* is that a load off my shoulders!
*We = it takes 2 people to make a peanut*
Have a fantastical weekend!! Hope to pop in soon again!!
