As in fried potato. A nice idea, but I think a Spanish omelette is better if you want to put potatoes in it. Still tasty, though.
More tricky, this one, what with frying the potato and bacon just right. However, definitely worth the trying.
A sort of pretend euphenism for daylight saving time. Of course, it is neither: it cannot really be called ‘summer time’, extending as it does from March (spring) to a full month after the autumnal equinox. And if we all had the middle of our day actually at midday, it wouldn’t be necessary to save on the daylight either.
Still, the increased sunny evenings are very nice (and it’s actually sunny today).
(dry cure bacon) and cherry tomatoes. The bacon chopped and fried and added to the egg yolks with the tomatoes. Absolutely delicious.
And cherry tomatoes. A yummy lunch, indeed.
Or the feast of the Annunciation.
Interestingly, this day was calculated as the annunciation by taking nine months before Christmas. It used to be New Year’s Day, until about 1750 sometime, when the old inaccurate Julian calendar was changed for the new more accurate Gregorian calendar (it took a long time for England to upgrade the calendar, because religion got in the way, as it does). The Tax year ends on April 5 because this was new Year’s day plus the extra days ‘lost’ when the calendar was changed from Julian to Gregorian.
Flowers: yes, blue, or white, or gold, or lilies, or any flowers you like.
Prayer: the Angelus, there’s a mystery in the rosary.
Music: there’s a song called ‘the Angelus’, which we sang at school, it was very nice.
Time to: buy a new account book, pay off debts.
I chose parsley. I didn’t add enough to taste really; for some reason, everybody else puts in a teensy tiny bit, and I add generous bucketsfull. Perhaps herby omlettes are easier without souffleing them. Notice that I still cannot remember how to spell omelette.
I am of the opinion that smaller omelettes are easy to make, so made one for just me for lunch. It is extremely tasty and delicious, and although it sounds complicated, very extremely easy.
The theory being that you parbake some hollowed tomatoes, and then put eggs in them, and bake them. Either my recipe is wrong, or my oven, or my eggs. But they take a whole lot longer to cook than it says in the book, and I ended up microwaving them. I think they’d be nice, if somebody else cooked them, though.
