Sometimes a Saturday morning just has to start with a bacon butty, and these 'No-Pork Streaky Bacon Rashers' from Aldi are a pretty tasty occasional breakfast, and they make the lodge smell gorgeous as they cook ... Alan falls for it every time I cook them and thinks I've gone back to the 'dark-side'.
No little piggies were harmed in the making of this meal ... now why did Spellcheck want to change that to Pygmies? 😄😆
Half of the pack of the rashers and two slices of bread gave me enough for a tasty breakfast with a few little pieces left over for the dogs, who are convinced that Mum has the real deal and want their share of the bacon breakfast.
And it's nice to eat my breakfast while I'm watching YouTube clips of other breakfast ideas for future days.
And ever since doing the Ration Challenge a couple of times I love parathas and I make them at least a couple of times a month. Watching them being made here by someone more expert than me was really relaxing. They are just a layered flatbread by any other name ... and they have lots of names depending on which national cuisine you are visiting.
And it's always nice to have a look at someone else's small living space, in this case over 200sq ft larger than mine. What is it about small living spaces that intrigues so many of us so much?
Something else I've done this week in-between watching numerous YouTube clips and the second series of Killing Eve on iPlayer, is to sign up for and start playing with this years Jacquie Lawson online Advent Calendar ... possibly the best £3.70 I spend all year. This years looks as beautiful as last years, and with the room to decorate and all the games to play you can start enjoying it immediately. I still have last years saved on my computer and I've been playing the games all year when I'm waiting for something to download or just fancy a little play.
I might just go and decorate my virtual Christmas Tree while I wait for the kettle to boil ... it's coffee time. 😀🎄
