Nice to wake up to scones. The kids, sadly, don’t love these because of the ginger — it’s a bit too intense a flavor for them. So I’m going to be packing most of them up later today to drop off to a few neighbors. But it was nice to wander down, a little groggy, and have these waiting for my breakfast. Reheat in toaster oven a few minutes, split, spread with butter and mango-passionfruit curd. YUM.
Yesterday we cleaned the first floor, at least, which isn’t quite a whole home clean for New Year’s, but it’s a win, and I’ll take it. And this morning, I fed my people something delicious — bombatoast and bacon, with plenty of fresh fruit. If you look carefully, you will spot the top of Anand’s head, as he waits (im)patiently for me to be done taking photos and call him to eat.
I needed a little inspiration for day 5 of turkey leftovers (I think this is the last day), so I made up a batch of seeni sambol (spicy, tangy, sweet caramelized onions) and spread that on a delicious sesame bagel from The Daly Bagel with a bit of butter. Yumyum.
Breakfast for dinner last night — it was a long, sad day, and I felt the need for some comfort food. The kids were delighted — bacon and bombatoast.
(We’ll eat some vegetables today, I promise.)

Breakfast doesn’t need to be pretty, but it’s nice when it is. I’m not sure it counts as cooking if all you’re doing is assembling components? If you get great fresh bagels from your local shop, they don’t even need toasting. But I suppose we usually count salads as cooking, so this can count too.
One of my favorite breakfasts, and pretty healthy too (although if you do it open-face like this, it can be a little messy to eat.) Summer tomatoes from the garden take it up a notch!
Birthday lunch, made by the children. They can make me bombatoast anytime. (It did take them twice as long as my recipe calls for…)
Hey, so it turns out that if you are completely bewildered as to where your hopper pans might have gone (did I loan them out to someone?), but your friend gave you some hopper batter that you really want to use, you can totally make (giant) hoppers in a wok.
