Emergency Scotch Egg


Three hours proper sleep in 48 hours
And listening to this on the radio this afternoon
And I hurled into the post night shift/ jet lag blues
There was only one thing for it
Get in the Berlingo
And drive quick sticks  towards town
,

Park up at Marks and Spencer's food hall
Buy an emergency scotch egg
( pack f two £ 1.15)
Drive to beach and stop for a moment to enjoy the view


I didn't forget the dogs 
( I bought them a pack of  50 cocktail  sausages)

12 sausages each dog



Bliss

  9. You are very generous with your doggy sausages, ours are lucky to get two each :-)

    They are actually VERY nice according to Lovely Hubby added to the bacon in the Aga for his cooked breakfast, they puff up amazingly well and turn into THE most delicious little mini breakfast sausages, even the dogs love them warm.

    I think that the Scotch Egg is really well deserved and a with view as well ..... your rewards are coming on earth as well as in heaven ;-)

  10. When the beach came up, I thought about the dogs. Low and behold, your next sentence was about them.

    10 each? And, I thought my Higgins was spoiled.

  18. Bumper stickers are very popular in the US. I wonder if they have one that says, "I stop 4 Scotch Eggs." Probably not, but I will check it out.

  19. Daft as a brush, you are.......in a very nice way of course. x

  20. First of all, I love that song "Say Something". It was sung by the contestants Alex and Sierra on the US version of the Xfactor. If you have some time between the sausages and the scotch eggs, have a look at Alex and Sierra singing "Gravity" on youtube. It's another good one.

    I have yet to experience a Scotch Egg, and I just want to snatch it off your dashboard. And that picture of a dog's nose so close to a sausage is just priceless!

  21. I can not ever come across a recipe or photo of a Scotch Egg and not think of you John. x

  22. You were so sleep-deprived, you were hurtling down the wrong side of the road, drooling in anticipation. (Do you have any idea how that image makes my hair stand on end?)

  23. John - I saw this company at a recent food fayre in Worcester and thought of you! You've probably seen 'em before but they do 39 different varieties of scotch egg for your delight and delectation! http://www.handmadescotcheggs.co.uk/ (and a normal unadulterated one too!)

  25. Hahaha! Love it. Sometimes an emergency scotch egg is the only thing that will soothe the nerves, much like emergency chocolate.

  31. Haha. Your dogs are so spoiled.
    You all deserve it, though. Glad you all enjoyed your treats, John. ♥

  32. Twelve sausages per dog? Blimey, spoilt rotten! Glad you didn't try to keep up by downing 12 Scotch eggs.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sometimes, we all need a real treat. Time for you to rest

  34. I hope you got a proper sleep after all that. Oh, and one of the things i want to do this year is make Scotch eggs. I haven't yet.

  35. I once gave Popeye some sausage and the result was gas for the next two days, think we will stick to kibble.

  36. Poor puppy (that would be you). After a couple of days like that and the beautiful but downer song, I'd need a Scotch egg myself. Well, not really; but I would enjoy a cocktail sausage. 12 sausages per dog, I assume would leave 2 for me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Awwww I would love to give you a hug!!!!!!! but unfortunately bodily contact with other humans repulses me.. so I mentally send my hugsxxxx

  38. You'll never change where scotch eggs are concerned will you. Get a good night's sleep tonight.
