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!

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The big question for me, though, is what kind of nutter makes a Christmas wreath that is out of date by 4th December?!
