In a chat with a friend on Facebook earlier this morning there was mention of Spam and different varieties of Spam. I mentioned that I’d like to see Vegemite Spam.

I cut a slice of Spam and gently and with great love fried it in a frypan until the outside surface had changed colour a little. I set it aside to cool and rest. When the surface of the Spam was cool, I smeared on a little Vegemite. I put some spinach leaves and halved cherry tomatoes into the frypan plus a small handful of grated cheddar cheese. Atop the cheese I added the slice of fried Vegemite smeared Spam. I cooked this for three minutes with a lid on the frypan. The spinach leaves wilted, the cherry tomatoes softened, and the cheese melted.

I’m sure people in England could do this with marmite or promite. I wonder if people in Hawaii, the Republic of Korea, and Japan (big Spam lovers) would like this dish.

Steamed egg, melted cheese, and wilted spinach

So like I showed you yesterday, the whole steamed egg and wilted spinach is a thing with me.

This morning, I made a little mound of cheese on the spinach on which to nest my egg.

I broke the yolk deliberately before shooting the photograph so you can appreciate the oozy goodness of the yolk porn.

What did you have for breakfast today?

Here’s a link to Random Yummy Season 1 Episode 001.

Unsweetened yoghurt with blueberries and raspberries

As much as I would like a big bowl of ice cream, I make do with unsweetened yoghurt and fruit.

Tonight I added fresh blueberries and raspberries.

This is my go to breakfast most days of the week. This dish is protein rich and low in carbohydrates. You can also see I like my Nespresso™ coffee too.
