Scotch Egg Heaven


When Chris was at Church this afternoon
I fell asleep in the armchair
Around four pm I was woken up 
By a knock on the door
It was policeman Ian from High Street 
With a single quails egg scotch egg
Wrapped in a small square of baking parchment 
He had baked his first egg and wanted an expert's view on it
10/10
Nectar of the gods

  22. I wish I had neighbors like you! Your whole village sounds so nice!


    Hell, I have "friends" that live within walking distance who couldn't even be bothered to send me a text after my recent surgery. People just get too caught up in their own lives to be thoughful, I guess. I wish all of the wonderful people I know via blogs lived close by.

  24. Maybe you should think about patenting a 'Welsh Egg' - to your own superior recipe of perfection. I can't seriously think that the Scotch Eggs which you consume cannot be improved on.

  27. Anbrosia indeed. There's not much beats a scotch egg - and a quail's one at that. Since my blog on the subject I've now had dozens of folk send me their photos of their gourmet eggs.
