I try to save drippings whenever I roast a chicken (assuming I don't need the drippings for the roasted chicken preparation).

So this morning I took a spoon of solidified chicken drippings, heated in a pan, threw in some freshly chopped parsley, and scrambled some eggs in it. The chicken fat was full of flavor - garlicky, a little lemony, herby...great.

Ate with a piece of lightly toasted ciabatta from Balthazar (bought last evening) with Ben's Butter, and a sliced heirloom tomato from Eckerton at the greenmarket.

Coffee blend these days is Cafe du Monde and the Agata & Valentina house blend mixed together.

So fickle. I started today with a kipper - it will be another 6 months before it seems like a good idea again.

I had a cafe latte.


Then at 11:30 I ate around five little dried-shrimp-with-chile-and-rice-paper-wrapper snacks from the jar on my coworker's desk. They were very moreish.

Today I had toasted sourdough topped with mozzarella, roasted red peppers, fleur de sel and basil.

Coffee is Kenya AA from Fairway.

omni - "moreish," as in "very easy to eat more." They were quite delightfully crunchy. ;)

They were also quite Chinese-Malaysian. Apparently the chile is what makes them non-traditionally Chinese.

Waitrose organic muesli (very boring) with lots and lots of raspberries and blueberries. Orange juice. Monmouth Coffee House coffee - can't remember which sort H bought.

Try the Dorset Farmer (or whatever it's called) muesli next time you're in Waitrose. They have different variants, and it's not at all bad. I like the high-fibre version, it's pleasingly toasty.

Nor am I, but I force myeslf whenever possible. I really don't like eating first thing, but if I don't, at some stage of the morning I end up feeling like I could eat a scabby horse.

The inevitable upshot of this is a bacon butty run at about ten o'clock. Which is very tasty, but is the death of all my good intentions.

Smoked trout w/ sliced tomatoes.

Coffee is (ahem!) WNYC Radio Roast that is beaten beyond recognition with the addition of sugar, vanilla coffee creamer and milk.
It is better to have beans and bacon in peace than cakes and ale in fear.
