Part two of my inspired weekend of cooking (see previous post) took place this morning for breakfast. I so love the recipes that I pick up from Stylist Magazine and Emerald Street. Infact I’m probably more in love with Emerald Street because I sit at a computer nine hours a day and when a recipe drops into my inbox there’s nothing I like doing more than staring at inspiring recipes.
I also think Hugh’s way of cooking is so convincing. The man wrote a whole book about vegetables which would convert any non veggie eater.
This weekend I made Chachouka. WTF you say? Well doing a little hunting around I found out that chachouka (also called shakshouka) originates from North Africa – thought to be Tunisia. Quite apt that the OH came back from working in Tunisia on Friday – not so sure he was impressed with this as a breakfast dish though. Ah well you win some you lose some.
We all have cravings and penchants for foods that others might consider weird – myself included. But one friend who’s tweets I follow on Twitter caught my attention for the wrong reason as I deemed what he eats to not be “food”.
Concoctions such as “ham and cheese sandwiches with HP sauce”, “french bread, ham and cheese, croissants with philly and jam and a cappacuino and hot chocolate”.
This boy needed to be taught a thing or two about simple dishes that are easy to cook and are SO much better for your diet.
I’ve had my new iPhone 4 for a little over 3 weeks now and the thing I’m most impressed by is the camera. I generally try to carry my digital camera around with me for the unexpected circumstance that I may have to document my indulgences. Sometimes my iPhone has been used but it’s never really delivered in terms of quality without a touch up.
This however is the real deal – no adjustments have been made to the following images.
