Sometimes only a fried egg will do

April 30, 2013

I went to a meeting tonight, leaving as the meal (which I’d prepared and cooked – with the exception of the broccoli) was about to be dished up – really bad timing. I grabbed a small slice of flan (spinach and Caerphilly cheese: nice, but leftover from the other day so didn’t have that just cooked wonderfulness), to stave off the hunger and set off. It was a beautiful evening. Blue sky and the sun was casting a rosy glow.

After looking at Stephen’s bluebells to see whether they were native or not (beautiful, but I think not), we talked about bees and the threats to them caused by pesticides and welcomed the EU 2 year restriction on neonicotinoids – which are pesticides which attack the nervous systems of bees (the British government voted against the ban (shame) – and what we could do about it (vote anything but Tory and Lib Dem?).

We can plant bee friendly zones, but bee friendly planting is one little thing.  In fact banning neonicotinoids altogether would be so much better (find a list of products to avoid which contain them here).  Some stores have banned their sale – Waitrose for instance – so maybe we should all shop there.fried-egg

By the time I came home it was dark and I was feeling a little saddened by the state of the world and our lack of respect for it and I was hungry. So I put some of the stir fried (organic) red cabbage and shredded (organic) carrot with mushrooms and paneer I cooked earlier on a plate and added a fried egg and some salt and pepper.

The picture’s not that great, but the food was perfect.

    Thank goodness for the EU this time- a small victory for pollinating insects. I wish our government would listen to the expertise of scientists and good peer reviewed research instead of big agri-chemical business.
