If anybody has any idea what this means please email me and I'll have a go at making the dish some day -
it's got me completely flummoxed.
Luckily I always have a plan for such eventualities and today's was a very tasty plan indeed.
I had a jar of French beans and sausages sitting in the cupboard waiting for just this opportunity
(these are very different from the canned ones you get in Britain). With these I decided to do a traditional British
dinner of eggs, sausage, beans and toast, but in a French style. I toasted the bread on a griddle,
served the beans and sausages on top and made oeufs et poireaux en cocotte (baked eggs and leeks) instead
of just frying up the eggs. Not a bad dinner at all, a few pommes frites would have been nice, but I was
out of spuds.
Mini Apple Crumble: From Andrew's bakers where I got yesterday's rhubarb crumble. I am not sure if it's called ray's or Andrew's as it has two signs which contradict each other. To prove this wasn't the same cake as yesterday I broke it up to expose the appley centre and demonstrate it wasn't rhubarb again. Very good crumble indeed, well done Andrew/Ray or whoever you are.
