In previous years I haven’t really known whether to “do” Father’s Day seeing the step-parent relationship was new. This year we have Eve leaving no ambiguity, which is great I love an excuse to give gifts and make a fuss over those I love.
Future Father’s Day gifts will be handmade and not extravagent but this year I’m all for making a special one.
For breakfast I made French Toast and Eggs poached over Pancetta. Several trips by Evie and I to get some Soy Cream were fruitless so I had to depart from my usual recipe. Both of these are so simple that they hardly warrant a recipe but just in case they are helpful to anyone else here they are.
Eggs poached over Pancetta
In a baking tray put tea cups or ramekins for the number of serves you wish to make, fill tray with 1-2cm of water.
Place 1 slice of Pancetta into each tea cup (you can use Proscuitto if you prefer the flavour but the Pancetta shape works better).
Crack an egg into each tea cup.
Place into preheated 170C oven for approx. 15 – 20 mins according to preferred firmness of yolk. Be careful removing from the over these cups get really hot.
1/2 dozen eggs
750ml Oat Milk
Lawson’s Traditional Bread (or other chunky sliced loaf)
Cinnamon to taste
Whisk eggs and Oat Milk together.
Dip bread slices in egg mix and place into a moderately hot frypan, sprinkle with cinnamon to taste.
Turn after approximately 4mins and sprinkle with cinnamon to taste.
One both sides have been browned remove and indulge.
We ordered custom cufflinks with Eve’s footprints stamped into them, from Silver Sculptor on Etsy. The quality is amazing and much, much cheaper than local versions of the same concept. Mr. Wolff says they are his new favourite cufflinks (he only has two pairs so it’s kind of funny).
Hope everyone and their loved ones are having a wonderful Father’s Day.
