Me eating breakfast with @Bron99 Thanks Bron for capturing the image with your iPhone.
Would you believe I’ve never made a pie. I know I’ve eaten hundreds of pies. When I was at school there was a year when I think I ate a cottage pie every day from the tuck shop in addition to the lunch Mum made me.
Tonight I had some chicken, some sweet potato, some cheese, a packet of French onion soup and some puff pastry. I didn’t blind bake or do anything like that. I was hungry when I came home from work and just put the pastry in a lined glass oven proof dish. I browned some diced chicken, grated some sweet potato and cheese and then covered with some cream that had been whisked with an egg and the contents of a French onion cup-of-soup packet.
The ‘thing’ looked hideous as it cooked.
Of course I had to finish with ice cream.
All in all it looked bad but tasted great.

This morning Bron asked me to breakfast at Mavi in Phillip. The breakfast wrap comes as a coffee deal for $9.50. Not a bad breakfast.
Not the greatest coffee. It tasted okay but it was not hot so it felt very ‘milky’.
No, I didn’t have two, although I reckon I could knock off two.
The smell of the bacon and egg was so powerful
The wrap contains mushrooms, bacon, fried egg and hash brown potato. I reckon a nice pork sausage or some black pudding would be nice too.
Mind you there was nothing left over and very little barbecue sauce spillage.
The chips were amazing. It’s a pity I went to a meeting before I could finish the schnitzel. Cold schnitzel isn’t that tasty.
Breakfast was a simple fried egg with bacon and some spinach.
I was at Old Parliament House for a meeting and this is what we got for morning tea.
Tonight I was late and felt lazy. I wanted steak, sauce and chips. So that’s what I made myself.
The most important meal of the day is breakfast. It’s the meal that breaks the fast that occurs while you’re asleep.
This morning I wanted something a bit fancy. I had bacon, egg, toasted English muffin, Philadelphia cream cheese, smoked salmon, spinach and strawberries.
While I was home sick on Friday I was watching Ready Steady Cook and one of the chefs was making a sauce with strawberries. It looked simple so I tried it this morning. I simply boiled a punnet of strawberries in water with a dessert spoon of caster sugar. When the strawberries were soft I pureed them in a food processor.
The strawberry sauce was like having runny strawberry jam with my muffin.
It tasted very good.
But it tasted good.
Bacon pieces, baked beans, an egg and a little cheese.
