Back Home in Cornwall and eating "Normally"

Not burnt ~ black garlic bread!

~  Menu  ~

Poached Eggs
Black Garlic Bread
Coffee and Vanilla Yogurt

Its good to be home and have all our stuff about us.  We went Up North for 3 weeks but stayed 3 months and I hadn't packed for such an eventuality.  I should have taken my roasted garlic, my black garlic, smoked black pepper, Caribbean seasoning, Tortolian vanilla extract, balsamic glaze, chilli pickle and so on and so forth.  Not being of a spendy nature I didn't want to waste money replacing these items so had eat in a plainer manner whilst away.  Today I got back to "normal".

Our friend Carol gave us half a dozen eggs freshly laid by her "girls" so poaching was the obvious way to go.  Leaving flavour aside eggs poach so much better when really fresh - for how to poach them see here.  I served them with a piece of bread smothered with black garlic butter and toasted till crisp.  I sprinkled the whole lot with smoked black pepper and weyhey!



My dessert occurred as a by-product of my aging process, I believe.  Preparing my breakfast I accidentally added the spoonful of instant coffee to my vanilla yogurt instead of my coffee mug.  Well you know how I abhor wasting anything; I stirred it in and put it in the fridge for lunch pudding.  It worked fine!



In Other News ...

Well nothing much other than I am working hard to promote my eBook about ice cream.  Here's a picture of one I made earlier to tempt you to look into the matter!


Homemade coffee ice cream (just look at the texture on that!) with sugared walnuts. 

Re:  My earlier Best Before Date Rant

Remember my rant-ette a few days ago?  Well, my darling brought home a Christmas wreath yesterday, reduced in price by a considerable amount and much as we appreciate the bargain there is absolutely nothing wrong with the it; no dryness, no sign of wilting, just fine and dandy


The big question for me, though, is what kind of nutter makes a Christmas wreath that is out of date by 4th December?! 



Pin It!
