Christmas Breakfast Om Nom Nom

Merry Christmas everybody!!

I made breakfast for my family this morning, after Santa brought me a cooking magazine!! It was inspired by an Israeli dish, but I guess mine ended up with more of a Mediterranean feel.

So I fried some garlic and mushrooms (if I’d had onion, there’d totally be onions) and then tipped in a tin of crushed tomatoes. I took the time now to add a little cumin and some “Italian herbs”.

That simmered away for a little while, and then I cracked a whole bunch of eggs in, and put on the lid.

In the mean time, I toasted some Turkish bread, and set the table.

JOHN GREEN FOOD DAY OM NOM NOM

A few weeks ago, my buddy Rhi and my cousin Hannah and I decided that we needed to make the food from John Green’s books, Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns. Both of which, by the way, you need to read.

I saw a tutorial on Youtube for both these recipes, but it’s pretty straight forward. First of all, what the hell are these things? Why don’t I let John Green explain?

So between the deep-fried burittos, and the sugar-drenched energy drink, we had a heart attack waiting to happen.

Here’s a little video Rhi put together, which shows off nicely what we did.

I wouldn’t try Bluefin like this again (we later simply disolved fairy floss into water, and it was sugary brilliance), but Oh My hweprufhuodhfwirfh bufriedos were AMAZING. We’re making this a monthly do.

Saturday Morning Breakfast. Bacon? Pancakes? Bacon? Pancakes?

Just a quick little post about an experiment I conducted this morning.

After seeing this the other day, I thought I’d give it a go, even though I’m not the World’s Biggest Bacon Fan.

And now you never have to decide between bacon and pancakes again.

Om Nom Nom Apples

Last night, my friend Troy – who I’ve known for, oh you know, FOREVER – and I had a sleepover. There was Thai food. There was wine. There were 90s movies (and Wall-E, but I fell asleep :/). And there was dessert. Troy suggested a chocolate bavarian from his freezer, but I’m trialling a dairy-free  diet, because I keep getting tummy aches when I have it… So there  were POACHED APPLES.

We all know what time of year it is. It’s procrastination assignment and exam time! Sleep? Who needs that?! You can sleep when the semester’s over.

But you still need to eat. And what better way to procrastinate take a study break than to cook something you’ll get to eat? Bonus points for comfort foods.
