Green Eggs & Ham (super quick faux pesto)

What do you do when you break up with a friend? It’s not really like breaking up with a boyfriend, it maybe something more deep than that, because a boyfriend break up is expected.

Breakfast and Britain.

I have always wanted to make my own poached eggs, à la eggs Benedict. Always being ever since I had breakfast at ETC on East Terrace in Adelaide (seriously check it out!), but sometimes it doesn’t work out. And that is okay, because it is so nice outside!

Basically I had that whole sitch in my hands, before my very eyes. And I over cooked it. I went there. I did that.

So I think I should talk about the book I’m reading. Which by amazing coincidence, I have not overcooked. It’s Bill Brysons ‘Notes From a Small Island’ and it is hilarious! The book details Brysons’ final lap around Britain before he moves home to America; after a 20 year stint in my homeland. I’ve never read such an accurate portrayal of Britain and its people by a foreigner, so very highly recommended. Readers should particularly take note of the hilarious ‘only in Britain’ place names, such as Pinhead, Titsey and Farleigh Wallop

I think I’m getting slightly homesick, craving yorkshire puddings and cottage pies and the like. Don’t worry there will be a whole series of Jamie related british cooking o so very soon.

Next post will involve coconut, strawberry syrup and condensed milk! Can anyone guess what I am making!?
