Egg fu yung

Egg fu yung 5

I told you a couple of weeks ago that I often get veggie chow mein when we get a Chinese take away. Well, I also often get egg fu yung. That’s about it though – I’m not very imaginative. It’s usually one of those two options. Or, occasionally tofu in black bean sauce. But that’s…

Hot cross bun bread and butter pudding 2

Hot cross bun bread and butter pudding

I’m not remotely religious, but I still love the lead-up to Easter because all the best foods come into the shops at this time of year. Obviously there are Easter eggs and Creme Eggs (which I tend to buy a bucketload of to last me through the summer – it’s a total travesty that they’re…
