I'm definitely partial to boiled eggs! They have to have runny yolks, though. My daughter says she doesn't like eggs, but she likes scotch eggs! Work that one out!! Because I can't!

My son doesn't like eggs, but likes quiche. Really, really odd!

[quote=""diamondlil""]How long would an ostrich egg take to cook do you think? And how big would the saucepan need to be! LOL![/quote]

Hadn't thought of that - I was just imagining the end product - LOL!

[quote=""Vanessa""]Last night we went out for a meal to Loch Fyne, a seafood restaurant and oyster bar, where I had mussels following by a seafood platter consisting of crab, langostines, more mussels, scallops, prawns, oysters........ It was yummy![/quote]

Lucky you! I could eat seafood every single day - especially shrimp, oysters, crab and saltwater fish like mahi mahi/dolphin, wahoo or king mackeral, and tuna. I grew up offshore sportfishing and have loved having lots of frozen fish at hand over the years from fishing trips with my dad and brother. My mother has a fantastic fish stew recipe using king mackeral that has been in the freezer so long that all it's fit for is stew.

I had a bit of tuna salad in a wheat wrap with some melted shredded cheese for dinner. I substitute canned salmon for tuna alot lately though.

Ermm no! My boy had cabana but I don't think that is quite the same thing!

Cabana is a mild smoked sausage, kind of like maybe pepperoni or salami but very mildly spiced.

Tonight, some friends came around for dinner so we had barbecue and salad followed by fresh strawberries that I picked up at the local market today dipped in chocolate. Yum!

I still have a mountain of strawberries to get through over the next few days.

Now, I am having a beer to relax before I do my third lot of dishes for the day.

Mini bruchetta with tomato and cheese, and rocket and feta. Followed by chicken wrapped in pruciotto with rosemary potato and a mustard dressing with a side salad: pear and walnut. Too stuffed for pud so just had a coffee!

Our anniversary so we went out for a posh meal! It was lovely!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx
