Yesterday I ate pickled eggs for the first time. For those of you unaware of the concept, pickled eggs are simply boiled eggs that have been preserved in vinegar. It appears to be an English thing, and Tim and I have been curious to try them for some time. So yesterday, while doing some grocery shopping, we took the plunge and added a jar of Garner’s Free Range Pickled Eggs to our shopping basket.
The jar claims to use “specially selected ingredients hand picked for quality.” That may be true, but it was hard to taste the “quality” under the overwhelming flavor of vinegar. But I suppose that’s pickled eggs for you.
Pickled eggs – fun to try. But would I buy them again? Probably not. I prefer my eggs boiled, poached, or omeleted.
- Gym: 30min warm-up. Leg presses, assisted pull-ups, dumbbell pullovers, rows. 10 minutes w/ the kickboard in the swimming pool
- Breakfast: Bircher muesli with sunflower seeds, banana and greek yogurt
- Snack: Pickled egg.
- Lunch: Channa masala with salad, bulgar wheat and cucumber raita.
- Clay mission: Tim and I went on a mad mission to Radstock to buy clay for the clay oven we’re building. We made it back with 500kg of clay loaded into the back of our poor little Astra. And £100 less in our pockets. Clay is not cheap, or light.
- Dinner: Ultimate omelet by Tim filled with peppers, tomato, broccoli, cauliflower, sauteed mushroom and onion, parmesan cheese. Served with avocado on toast and a rocket, cucumber and tomato salad.
Bircher muesli and coffee
Pickled eggs, a new food in this household. And probably not one that will remain. They are VERY vinegary. I’d rather just have a boiled egg.
Channa masala with salad, bulgar wheat and raita.
Everything omelet and rocket salad.
