Yep, I'm still here, alive and kicking and cooking.
Some of my absence has been down to work, some of it to kids but I will have to admit that some of it has been due to sheer laziness.
The weeks have been long, hectic-all in a good way! Come the weekend, you just want to put your feet up and watch a good movie with your loved ones. Well at least I have for the last...4 months.
Not that I've stopped cooking mind you. I've had the odd birthday party, dinner party, packed lunch and even packed dinner, not to mention what has now become a ritual in our household-The Sunday Roast.
I do intend on catching up, now that I have the odd quiet evening all to myself. Hmm pure indulgence considering the last few months.
I will catch up on my fellow bloggers' posts, finish my Italian Foodie Experiences and even share some of the happenings in my life with you-I will try to stick to the interesting ones when and if they do occur. :-)
And speaking of indulgences, let me just leave you with my ultimate breakfast treat:
Scrambled eggs with Smoked Salmon
4-5 slices of good quality Oak Smoked Salmon, cut into bite size pieces
4 good quality fresh eggs
120 mls of double cream
Some chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
125 gs of salted butter
50gs of Philadelphia Cheese
2 slices of toasted ciabatta or your favourite bread
Melt the butter in a frying pan.
Add a small piece of smoked salmon-to flavour the butter.
In a bowl mix the eggs with cream and season.
Pour the mixture into a frying pan and stir until almost cooked but still creamy.
Switch the heat off, add the smoked salmon and fold into the eggs.
Spread the Philadelphia onto the toast, top with the scrambled egg and sprinkle the chopped parsley all over it.
Enjoy...drooling just thinking about it!! :)
