Very nice Croque Madames Mysty though personally I prefer my egg yolks barely cooked and the egg white very crispy at the edges.
One day I will be as talented a cook as yourself :lol:
My eggs come as they are flip flop style :innocent:

Sidandus, I hope you like the colour 8-)
My special meal.
Pasta, in a cheese sauce with smokey lardons and tuna.
Parmesan on top.

Nettle Soup. I'd never tried it before and as we have many, many nettles I though I'd give it a go. It's surprisingly good and an amazing colour.

I used about half a small carrier bag of nettle tops (picked from the middle of a big patch where they were unlikely to have been peed on!), a big onion and a couple of potatoes. A stock cube, salt and pepper made enough for four portions.

Sounds good, but if they have been peed on you might need less salt. :o :lol:
My wife once, years ago made me some nettle soup after I mentioned that it could be good, as a joke. It was horrible, don't know how she cooked it but probably made it with the whole plant including the roots. :evil:

Me, I cooked the cod with seasoning and lemon slices for just under an hour on high in the Crockpot. Served with boiled spuds and carrots with lots of butter on top. :D

That's interesting, if I have porridge for breakfast I'm ravenous by mid-morning whereas if I eat my oats raw, as muesli, I'm fine!

Oven cooked Toulouse sos for me and pork chop for herself. Boiled spuds and carrot, no gravy just smothered in butter. Oh and I will have a generous dollop of apple sauce. :D
