Well hi! Long time no visit. Finally come up for air and thought to myself "hmmm maybe you should blog". So here I am.
What’s been happening in my land? Lots and nothing. Make sense? I met someone…Christmas came and went. New Year’s was amazing and 2007 is shaping up to be a humdinger of a year. A friend has some very exciting news that I can’t share yet and well, at the moment I’m feeling "giddy", to quote Al M.
Oh, you read the "met someone" comment. Well not a lot of detail to share here yet, but let’s just say she’s amazing and the word smitten is being bandied around.
New Year’s day started off with some excellent french toast I made. My version. Buy a brioche loaf. Slice it up, whisk up a couple of eggs add a dash of milk, combine some caster sugar and cinnamon or your spices of choice (cloves would be yummy) and spinkle this on a plate. Heat up a fry pan or a sandwich press (I use a sandwich press). Dip the bread in the eggy mixture, then place bread on the sugar plate, do both sides. Then put the bread in the sandwich press and let it cook. The sugar caramelises a little and it’s all toasty and warm. You plate it with some maple syrup and maple soaked strawberries…what you don’t see here is the wicked addition of a dollop of fresh cream. DIVINE.
The Kim Family Auction is up and running, go on over and bid.
Finally, Spud says whatever you do in 2007, make sure it includes lots of napping.
