So I have some news…

I have decided to consolidate my blogs, I am moving Full as an Egg over to Swoon as a regular blog post.

I have not decided what to do with this address so for now I am going to re-post while I decide as I have quite a few subscribers here, any suggestions?

Pop over to Swoon today for a great quick and easy spaghetti recipe…

Tower of Power Breakfast

September 7, 2012

This recipe is not my own, I so wish it was.

I saw this on one of the many many food blogs I read, but one of my go to for awesome healthy food; My New Roots not only are the recipes healthy Sarah tells you why each ingredient is good for you… meaning you gain knowledge every time you cook with her recipes.

You can see the full recipe and photographs here

We needed fuel for a day of painting so I thought this was a great opportunity to make this…

My slightly simplified version… 

For 3-4 you need:
2 large sweet potatoes
2 large red onions
spinach ( a big handful for each person)
cherry tomatoes (5-6 per person)
seat salt
black pepper
olive oil
1 egg per person
brown sugar
dried chilli flakes

1. Slice up your sweet potato and roast in the oven at around 220c for 20-30 minutes, making the edges go crispy and ensuring that the larger pieces are cooked through
At the same time saute your onions, slowly, add a little sugar for some extra sweetness.

2. Add some olive oil to a small saucepan and chuck in the tomatoes, put on a low heat and pop the lid on and cook until they are bursting. Watch these don’t burn, this will take 10-15 minutes but do it as slowly as possible.

When these bits are all done, Sarah suggests putting them all in a baking tray in the oven to keep warm… good thinking!

3. Saute your spinach in the same pan you did the onions, this will take 1-2 minutes… pop to one side while you poach your eggs the pile it up and enjoy…

Season with salt and pepper and chilli flakes if you have them!

Very filling and so good…

It’s a little faffy but very easy… try it at the weekend when you have plenty of time. 

We are painting…

September 6, 2012

Everything has been moved out, my Father in Law the painting machine has come to stay and by Friday we should be able to cook.

Hmmmm I think next year it’s the poor neglected gardens turn. Like our new shed?

 

Monday was all about the preparation…

 

Then we painted like crazy!

 

I have no idea how we would have got this done without him…

This was last night… the kitchen and dining room are done.

 

And I was able to get the new toaster and kettle out…

Which I was way too excited about.

It’s all looking a bit too tasteful right now though so I am looking forward to getting our things in there and art on the walls so it’s more ‘us’ and lived in.

Still a way to go but at least we can use it now, I have loved cooking up a storm this week; A Mexican feast, steak and chips, omelette’s plus an amazing breakfast idea I’ll share with you tomorrow…

Biggie is slowly coming to terms with it all.
