On Easter Saturday, we had bacon and scrambled eggs with buttered toasted bagels for breakfast. See the golden glisten on my bagel? That’s maple syrup! To be honest, I briefly considered pouring maple syrup over everything on my plate. Why didn’t I? Because if I cross that line there’ll be no turning back. :)
A little later, Jac’s niece came over for a sleepover and all three of us baked vanilla cookies together. The cookies turned out very crumbly – I think I may have mixed the cookie batter for a little too long using the electric mixer. They had a gorgeous vanilla flavour and were totally melt-in-the-mouth, but were a little tricky to eat due to their fragility.
For dinner, Jac made a super salad with lettuce, carrots, capsicum, green beans, cherry tomatoes, hard boiled egg, tasty cheese and a little panfried cabanossi sausage.
We ate the salad with chicken chipolatas, which we dipped in tomato sauce. Maple syrup would’ve gone down a treat here too, I reckon.
I know how much many of you love looking at bacon. So here it is again. I like to imagine it’s sitting in a pool sweet, golden maple syrup. Can you tell I have maple syrup on the brain?
