Saturday morning…I don’t like early…


Wow. I am struggling this morning….puppy was up way too early!!
I am going to have to quit my late nights and late mornings….on a plus side..I can fit in an extra breakfast.

I am very lazy and not a breakfast lover generally. However reading an interesting book on French culture, I am adopting a fab idea.
French bread and dark chocolate. That’s sounds good to me, and will go with my high morning coffee intake. I didn’t tell the children, they were still sleeping (oh, the jealousy lol).

Second breakfast, brunch, call it what you will…shall be omelette, stuffed with bacon, egg, and/or cheese.
We need to eat more eggs or get rid of some chucks. I often sell the eggs, but with the mud, people get fussy having to wash them. For me the taste out weighs the 2 seconds it takes..but hey that’s just me 🙂

Mid afternoon, there shall be rock cakes, scones and tiny sandwiches, full of new flavours. (today I shall try to get them to eat tuna).

Dinner…well I don’t know lol…I am tired already..If I grab a nap (unlikely). I shall make homemade pizzas and dough balls. If I am weary I shall pour a glass of wine and make scampi, fishfingers, chips and peas. judge me if you like…I am too tired to care.

Lets enjoy the lazy days, sunshine and company.

Have fun.

There are so many types of cooking that I really give no thought to….

But maybe I should, My beautiful boy told me last night that he knew I was a real Mummy because I baked him cake…I am going to bake more lol.

So today I have made an edible gift for my Boyfriends birthday. Florentines.

I will be honest. (I always try to be.) I had never even tried a Florentine before today.

I didn’t see the point, when given a selection of sweet delights to choose from I tend to go chocolate, coffee or carrot. However I am a bit skint at the moment so I got inventive with my gifts. He loves Florentines. They are quite pricey to buy good ones so I began my experiment J

Oh..They are so easy..In fact now I have tasted one (purely to check the quality of course.) I should have made at least double…. and that was before I dipped them in chocolate.

So there you go..I am converted. If my friends are lucky the next batch will be shared around the playground.

Happy Birthday to my Love

And happy Eating to all you lovely people that take the time to read my page…

Love from Sky @ http://www.thesideplate.com
