Weekend Antics and Ham and Eggs (Chinese) – Oh and a Fly

Yes, my correlations can seem a bit random, can’t they?

Firstly, I have to comment on the time being 11pm and all of the not so famous five are still being very vocal on the top floor! No John tonight as it is his office Christmas party in London.

Tara, Amritsar and Thor were down at around 8pm as there was a fly buzzing around in their rooms. We did have a fly come to stay with us last winter. We called him Barney. Did you know that not all fly species are the same? There is a specific breed that grows large and lives through the winter months. It is unlike those pesky summertime flies that have bacterial issues! This breed of fly is a little more sluggish to the summertime breeds. Well anyhow Barney used to come down at mealtimes and either sit on my shoulder or perhaps the countertop and just look on, a very cute and chilled out fly indeed.

Well, the fly in their room tonight was clearly not Barney, a little too small – he was however keeping the children awake with his constant buzzing and skipping from room to room,

The fly spray was called for and a zap or two later, the children were gifted a quiet time of it. And here we are three hours down the line and they are still rampaging the upper floor.

Okay, the other part of tonight’s story is Dadda’s dinner. No John tonight as I mentioned and to be honest, I just loved the Chinese food I cooked earlier in the week. So tonight I thought ham and eggs!

Chop one onion and a pepper/capsicum and fry until softened. Add a cup or two of cooked basmati rice. Keep turning until rice is hot. Chop up 4 or 5 slices of cooked ham into chunks and add. Meanwhile crack 2 eggs in a bowl and beat, microwave for a minute and a half to two minutes. Cool and then finely shred with a sharp knife. Add to your rice mixture and stir. Finally add a little white pepper and a liberal splashing of light soy sauce. Mix and serve – wow, simply divine,..
