Although I cannot lay an egg, I am a very good judge of omelettes.
~George Bernard Shaw
some olive oil
handful of chopped parsley
knobs of havarti cheese
salt + pepper to taste
bread (I used some leftover sourdough)
- All ingredients can be substituted with food you feel like eating on the day, and what you have on hand.
- Always use a fork and knife, even for the most casual and underdressed of foods. It makes it all very different.
- Method to my madness:
Drizzle olive oil into the pan. Sprinkle with mixed herbs. Crack eggs in when the oil is hot.
- While the eggs are cooking, slice the bread and dress with thin knobs of cheese. Arrange asparagus stalks on the side.
- Eggs should now be ready. Put these on top of the cheese. Season with fresh parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
It is fancy dining at home, summertime food and all. Delicious, and very simple.
Tired now from a day of walking in the seriously BLUSTERY windy countryside (but the spread of beauty was amazing and made it worthwhile). And for now, sunset to watch, book to read & eggs to eat make me a heartily happy girl.
PS. Happy New Year readers, whoever you are! (Gladly my visitor counter on the sidebar does let me know I HAVE readers…… yippee). Leave a comment or 2 in the new year won’t you, so I can say hello back? ;-)
