The pleasures of cooking for one

It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely.
~ Cole Porter

Tonight, I came home rather hungry and with no grand visions of dinner. I found 1/3 of a capsicum in the fridge, and half a box of eggs in the cupboard – so dinner took the form of an experiment: spiced eggs with capsicum, dill & parmesan on toast. A seemingly odd combination of flavours perhaps, but it was yummy and just the thing I needed!

    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 eggs
    1/3 capsicum, diced
    1/2 tsp paprika
    1/2 tsp curry powder
    1/2 tsp ground chilli
    sprinkle of dill
    sprinkle of parmesan
    pepper to taste
    2 slices of toast
    Heat the olive oil, paprika, curry powder and ground chilli in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Swirl the pan such that the mixture spreads evenly across the base of the pan.
    When the oil is hot, crack the eggs into the pan, and add in the capsicum. Leave it to cook while you prepare the slices of toast.
    Using a spatula, scoop the eggs carefully and arrange them on the slices of toast, adding sprinkles of parmesan, dill and pepper. Eat immediately, preferably with knife and fork, while sitting/standing in your favourite corner of the house.
