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.

Guacamaioli!

So the other day, I was making chips, and I thought, “Do I want aioli with these chips? Or guacamole?” And then I hit my forehead and realised the answer was simple. I would make BOTH. And the result was delicious.

So I made some more today, and took some photos, and had a delicious lunch with homemade chips, guacamaioli (a term I may have just coined? A quick Google search brought up avacado aiolis, but nothing for “guacamaioli” itself), and a tomato, cherry and mint salad.
