Deviled Eggs

I have added plenty of English mustard to give these Halloween themed deviled eggs a kick, along with mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper (not ground or there will be black flecks in the egg) and a pinch of paprika.   The insects on top are made from olives, I was going to make spiders but couldn’t fit all the legs on!

Walnut Loaf

I used large whole walnuts for contrast with the light sponge in this loaf.  Not all of them sank to the bottom!

Pork Shoulder Kebabs

It is stonkingly hot here today in Hampshire so we are having a BBQ!  These kebabs are made up of cubed pork shoulder with mushrooms, tomatoes and peppers and ground black pepper over.  We are also having corn on the cob and ciabatta bread and some chicken thighs with a sticky sauce.  Yum!  I’m off to rescue some Prosecco from the fridge…

Scrambled Eggs and Sparowgrass

I had a lovely breakfast of scrambled eggs on toast with asparagus today.  It was really nice.  I was pottering around on t’internet and coincidentally on the 20th of April 1667 Samuel Pepys also had asparagus, but he had his with salmon and I didn’t buy mine for 18 pence in London!  I think from now on I will call asparagus sparrowgrass…

So home, and having brought home with me from Fenchurch Street a hundred of sparrowgrass, cost 18d.  We had them and a little bit of salmon, which my wife had a mind to, cost 3s.  So to supper, and my pain being somewhat better in my throat, we went to bed.
