Inspired by grocer and sticki's posts on the humble poached googie, I found myself this Boxing Day morning musing on leftovers. I had been lucky enough to receive some roasted red pepper Provencale mustard in a hamper, and my brother had kindly given me a slab of ham, prepared at home, by a butcher mate of his.
So, armed with my copy of "A Year in Provence" (standard Boxing Day reading at Chez Fur), I prepared the above. A piece of whole wheat pita, slathered in said moutard, an organic lettuce leaf, torn, several slices of home-cured ham topped with a poached egg and some black pepper. Eat in the early morning sunshine, on the back porch whilst reading trashy novels and planning a lazy day.
The rest of the day involved naps and a half-hearted effort to read "A Garden on Lucca", but somnolence and Xmas digestion won out, and I napped some more.
Happy Holidays, everyone!!
PG WILL BE OFFLINE UNTIL JAN, SLEEPING IN AND EATING, DOWN AT CHEZ FUR. YOU'RE ALL WELCOME TO DROP BY ANY TIME, THE HAMMOCK IS STRUNG UNDER THE FAERY TREE AND THE VIETNAMESE MINT IS JUST WAITING TO BE TURNED INTO A CONDIMENT. BRING WINE AND ICECREAM.
