Introducing …. our latest family addiction – Oven roasted Parmesan and rosemary breakfast hashies. We now make these instead of our usual buttered toast as part of our Sunday morning breakfast fry up. The Kids go crazy for them!
Don’t get me wrong, I really like bread. A little too much actually. But I do try and limit how much I eat because even the seediest bread tends to give me tummy aches. It’s the same for both my daughters too. Maybe it’s the Gluten thing, but I don’t want to fuss too much because I don’t intend giving it up.
Last week we came back from a family holiday at the snow. My husband is obsessed with snow boarding and I am trying so so so hard to learn to ski. It does not come naturally to me. I shuffle around watching two year old’s whizz past me on their mini skis. Their Moms smiling and encouraging them to go faster as they fly down the hill. I get heart palpitations just watching. I spent all three days learning how to stop. Hint: falling is NOT the right way.
Anyway, we got home late Saturday. Not only had the cat pooped in the lounge!!! But the bread was moldy. Milk was sour and kids were hungry (that one I expected).
Thank goodness for coffee and my massive trusty bag of potatoes – I buy these in bulk 15 kilo bags every fortnight. I peeled enough to feed a small army, sprinkled with Parmesan and Rosemary and popped them in the oven.
Kids collected the chook eggs. There was a good supply waiting after three days of the family been away. I forgot to mention this little job to our farm sitter – Farm Sitter is actually a thing we’ve discovered.
The warmer weather has bought my hens to a laying frenzy. Oh yes, and we found this little fella – still to be named. His Momma is not very interested in him/her. She just wants to sit on eggs, not actually raise one of them. So he is now in our lounge taking prime position near the fire.
But despite the very cute distraction, we still ended up eating the most amazing welcome back breakfast. Thank you breakfast hashies!
