Happy Days

Last Friday I had more fun than I have had in many years! I very reluctantly went to the Good Food and Wine. I say reluctantly, because I had to go alone, and I hate going to things by myself.

I arrived at 10:15am and went straight to the Celebrity Chefs Theater and watched the Hairy Bikers in action! What great guys, they are so funny and down to earth!

I then roamed around, went to a few demos, won an apron at the Stork Kitchen, from Ideas Magazine, ate everything I saw that took my fancy and then at 1pm took myself to find Jenny Morris.

I would like to say that Jenny Morris is the nicest person I have ever met! She is warm, funny, grounded and someone who I would be proud to call my friend - FOREVER! She took me under her wing and then the fun really started. Jenny introduced me to Dave and Si (Hairy Bikers) and Sir Brian Turner! I was like a teenager at a Justin Timberlake concert!

After watching a few more shows and meeting Ilza from Food 24, I eventually had to go home at 4:30pm! Keith then took me out for a fantastic supper at
Col'Cacchio Pizzeria! What a perfect end to a perfect day!

I have a quick recipe for Eggs in Tomato Sauce, which I made for supper on Saturday night.

Eggs and Tomato Sauce

1 Onion thinly sliced
5 Mushrooms chopped

1 Tin of tomatoes
1 Tin (or packet) Tomato paste
1 Chilli chopped
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Dried Origanum
Salt and Black Pepper

I had a small piece of left over cooked Rump steak in the fridge which I added too, but this is totally optional 4 Eggs Fry the onions and mushrooms, add all the other ingredients except the eggs. Cook for about 15 mins , until the flavours are mixed and the sauce has thickened. Break the eggs into a cup and then make a well in the sauce and add the egg. Do this for all the eggs. Place them in the for "corners" of your pan. Place the lid on the pan, and let the eggs poach. Serve with either toast or fresh crispy rolls! It is very fulling and quick and easy!

What a coincidence, I cooked with Jenny too. I was not so lucky to meet the bike riders, though.

She is a star. The Hairy bikers are really fun.

Glad you had such a good time - and lucky you going to ColCacchio! It's one of my favourite pizzerias in all of the world.

I had the butternut ravioli, with sage butter. It really is the best. Their pizzias are to die for.

We've just discovered Col'Cacchio too - it was a revelation - the best pizzas I've had in a long time.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
