In Other News – 16 February 2016

I love English breakfast muffins – they’re the base for one of my very favourite things in the world, Eggs Benedict. Toasted English muffins, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs and a liberal coating of one of the French mother sauces, Hollandaise, and you’ve got sex, right in your mouth. There’s just something magical about the harmony of a lemon infused, butter and egg yolk emulsion drizzled over softly poached eggs that’s downright exciting, and a mighty fine start to the day.

Sometimes though, you want something a little less refined. Something that’s less dainty, and more the sort of thing you just grab and stuff in to your gob. Essentially the same, but with a fried egg and bacon instead of a poached one and ham. Replace the hollandaise with melted cheese and HO GOD CAN I JUST EAT IT ALREADY?

In Other news: You beta get ready for more of The Division, Kojima pals up with Reedus, Destiny gets “not really LEGO” deal, and play as a Titan.

            It was mentioned today again. Something about allowing racists in the DA party. And i’ve heard da+racist before.

            So not sure what it’s about nor do I care to go find out. It will come to me one day.

    That reminds me of my Sunday dinner – a burger served open, two 100g beef patties, cheese, bacon and each topped with a fried egg. Glorious.

      How do you hold that?
      Because eating a burger with a knife and fork is a sin.
      Also, well done patties? ;P

            If you ever around Old Mutual Head Office over lunch time, pop into Mutual Mall place called Shah’s that do “authentic” Durban Indiantake-aways. Roti’s, curries, masala steak dishes. They do turn the heat for us Capies.

            The huge steak, egg, cheese masala steak gatsby is awesome but probably takes of a few days of your life.
