The Perfect Weekend Breakfast

Homemade hash browns, poached egg and grilled tomatoes, with a cup of Yorkshire Tea. 🙂 What more could you want?

I have to give full credit to my boyfriend for cooking this delicious breakfast. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to have a meal cooked by Mr L, you will understand the waiting, hunger, and anticipation that accompanies the delight of the meal. He whizzes about in the kitchen, creating enticing smells, bangs and crashes. I wait and wait and occasionally peep in to the kitchen to see what’s happening; and widen my eyes and bite my lip watching the pile of washing up grow!

Eventually, it’s ready! And it is always a marvellous delicious treat, more than worth the wait!

I could compare the feeling to the scene in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang when the children are waiting while the dad is crashing about in his room fixing up the old battered car. Days and days go by, and eventually a new, shiny, colourful, amazing flying car comes out!

Okay, so breakfast was not quite that dramatic! But, still you get the picture. Yum yum!

Wishing You A Delicious New Year!

For my 25th celebratory post I’d like to wish a happy new year to all my readers and followers! I want to thank you all for the fantastic support since I started my blog in July. I’ve been overwhelmed with comments, ‘likes’, links and mentions and I really appreciate it. I hope everyone has a wonderful 2012 full of happiness, love, good heath and success. And above all, I hope you have a delicious 2012!

I haven’t set proper resolutions for the new year, however, in terms of my blog, I hope to enjoy lots more delicious meals and keep enjoying photographing my food and posting it on here to share with you. I intend to keep blogging as much as possible and experimenting with different foods and ingredients. This has been great fun and a wonderful hobby, and I’m enjoying it more and more as I get used to the ‘blogging world’! I have found many incredible blogs and have made myself a few ‘blogger friends’ who have been so kind and supportive.

WordPress have summarised my blog statistics for 2011, and here are some interesting facts:
Since starting this blog 6 months ago in July 2011, I have had 4,612 views, uploaded 120 pictures, and posted 25 times.

People found my blog via 580 different google search terms, including, ‘it’s been raining all day perfect soup’, ‘skinny girl eating all the food’, ‘in the advert daddy or chips what did the little girl choose’, ‘where to find quorn in portland oregon’, ‘should i count calories on my birthday’ and many more silly things!

My most viewed post is Sweet Potato Chicken Pie, but my most commented on post  is Cornish Delights.

So, thanks again to all of you and have a very happy new year!

And just because I thought this was so pretty last night and I was slightly mesmerised (it could have been the vodka) I would like to share the fireworks from London NYE 2011.
