Congratulations. You found your way here. It will seem strange for a while but I’ll soon get used to blogging at this new wordpress website.
I hope some of my Memoir Writing Group subscribe. They are a wonderful group of writers, all with different stories to tell. Some are writing to share their history with their family, others hope to publish and all embody the spirit of the writer, a desire to get the story down. I remember when I was writing Pickle to Pie I pinned to my wall a quote out of one of Bryce Courtney’s books.
There is no greater tribute than to lovingly record a life.
Life has taken over for me for a while. I am still teaching my memoir writing class, monitoring my Facebook Group Writers and Their Journey, tweeting etc etc, and throwing together whatever stories and tasty dishes I can think of on the spur of the moment. I would like to share with you a tried and true, stick to the ribs favourite
Egg and Bacon Pastryless Pie
4 medium sized, peeled potatoes
2 large onions, chopped
Half a kilo of diced bacon
2 tabs oil
Cheese slices and sweet paprika to garnish
Microwave potatoes until cooked. When cool, slice thinly lengthwise.
In a frying-pan add 1 tab oil and sauté onions, and bacon pieces. When golden brown scrape into a container. Add a little more oil to your pan. Cover the base fully with slices of potato. Spread over sautéed onions and bacon. Break 8 eggs into a bowl, gently breaking the yolks and pour over the potatoes, onions and bacon pieces. Add slices of cheese on top and dust with sweet paprika.
I find I put the entire pan under the griller for 5 mins to bubble the cheese, then return the frying-pan to the top of the stove and cook on low for at least 30 mins until the eggs have set.
What man can resist potatoes, onions bacon and eggs? This dish sticks to the ribs and is enjoyed by everyone
With dinner ready there is no excuse for you to not spend some time writing your story, unless the stove needs cleaning or the cupboards are untidy and there is a name for that…procrastination.
