This isn't a recipe at all....it is simply the sharing of a lovely thing and a bit of a nosey at what you all do?!
This, to my mind is simply the best way to eat an egg. I haven't once made it for my children, without the other adults in the room wanting one too. 'It makes a boiled egg more of a meal, somehow' (M-i-L 2009)!
I started to make this, after years of not doing so, for my children. I got to thinking, it is one of those things you eat that is meaningful. It suddenly brings back a feeling, a warmth, a memory. It is a little bit of caring, nurture from the past, indeed it seems forever connected with the woman (in my case) who made it for you. And it would seem I am not the only one. Even the menfolk of the clan, go a little misty eyed over the idea....'oh I love an egg like that'!
So here is my little B enjoying her bit of cooking tradition, her little bit of love in a cup....my Nanna, my Mum made it for me, I make it for my children....will they make it for theirs?
Do you have a food like this? One you return to when in need of comfort, when poorly, or down to the last £10 with a week to go till payday! Tomato soup (from the can!) with crusty bread (you know who you are!), cheese on toast, roast chicken....? Who was the lovely person who made it for you?
