My dad recently introduced us to the Two Greedy Italians series. The Two Greedy Italians consist of Gennaro Contaldo and Antonio Carluccio, two prominent Italian chefs from the UK. Each episode in this series is spent in a different town in Italy, eating and cooking the local delicacies as well as mixing with the local people all while they continually bait each other like teenage boys and reminisce of what Italy was like when they were children. It really is food porn for Italian food lovers.
Often I have those nights when the Dr is working and I’m on my own and I cannot even contemplate making a proper dinner but I gotta eat because I’m hungry. This is where breakfast for dinner comes in (or brinner as I have now decided to call it). Usually I end up either with a bowl of cereal or an omelette or scrambled eggs…until I made this. This is incredibly flavourful, awesome if you’re muffintop is starting to creep back and so quick to make (tick-tick-tick), that I made it 3 times in the past week-uh huh, yep, 3 times and the 3rd time I made it when the Dr was home, this is what happened (see below).
The weather in Melbourne has turned, literally overnight. It feels like we have skipped Autumn and have gone straight into winter, what the hell? Another sign of the winter weather kicking in is everyone seems to be catching a cold and losing their manners. I have started a new job recently and because it’s in the city I’ve started catching public transport again. It has been a long time since I’ve caught public transport and I’m beginning to remember why I hated it so much… people are gross and I’m a germaphobe. I’m the person who carries the liquid disinfectant in her handbag and will reluctantly touch anything that a million other hands have been on, in fact I feel a little bit sick just thinking about it.
So if I was organised, I would have posted this recipe for St Patrick’s Day (because it’s green people, yes, just pointing out the obvious – just in case), but I wasn’t, so here it is today. Come to think of it, on the other hand you could actually say that I am super organised and getting you prepared for next year’s St Patrick’s Day. Up to you which way you want to look at it…glass half empty or glass half full…your choice.
