We got home from the hospital early this morning. The monster is fine. All of the nurses on the ward were excellent, making a worrying night more comfortable. The beetroot salad was great as it’s one of those things that releases its energy over a long time. Plus the combination of beetroot and pear tastes earthy and homely.
So we felt like having some kind of comfort food for breakfast. I have eggs and streaky bacon in the fridge so Eggs Benedict sounded good. Here’s the result. The toast is from the bread I made on Sunday. I got the recipe for Hollandaise sauce on Wikipedia. I couldn’t find it using twecipe.
Eggs Benedict and steaming hot strong coffee:
Expect further updates for lunch and dinner today as I’m off on parental leave today. Also, I bought two chocolate bars last night to eat in the hospital (at about 0400) but didn’t eat them. I wonder if I can turn them into some kind of chocolate torte today.
Fennel soup is nice. I didn’t blend it because that would require making another piece of equipment to need to be washed. It tastes like an excellent base for seafood chowder. I may try that next week.
