On 22nd June 2015, This was Dinner…
Rain is now my enemy. OK we need it for water. Yes it makes the garden look luscious. I know I live in England where it’s the number one weather and until the 8th of Feb I’ve even been known to love a bit of rain. What changed? Having a puppy makes it my enemy. Especially having a puppy that looks like this…
He’s quite a sorry sight and looks half his size when drenched. Mr S says his feet look like he’s wearing cowboy boots when wet. Ha.
The nightmare of the dirty paw print has invaded my home. Popping out to do his business results in a fight to clean his paws and the rigmarole of getting the mop out. Cats hate getting dirty, dogs spy the dirtiest part of the garden and jump right in! So yes, rain is now the enemy.
So after Walter covered me in mud, we made this BBC Good Food recipe.
- Slice up some chorizo
- Slice a red pepper
- Drain a small can of sweetcorn
- Get salsa, eggs, milk, plain flour, corn meal, baking powder, coriander, oil & seasoning ready
Whizz up most of the coriander and the sweetcorn in a blender.
Whisk up 140g of flour, 50g of corn meal, 2 tsp of baking powder, two eggs and 125ml of milk. Add the sweetcorn mix. Season and whisk again.
Cook the chorizo and pepper in a pan. Remove and keep warm. Add a little more oil.
In another pan, heat some more oil and add spoonfuls of the pancake mixture, cooking for a couple of minutes each side. Keep warm whilst you make the remaining pancakes.
When almost ready, fry the eggs in the chorizo pan.
Mix the chorizo and pepper with the salsa.
Serve the chorizo mixture on top of the pancakes and top with the fried egg. Garnish with a little more coriander.
