Finally it's Autumn

The great sleeping weather has arrived.

Bacon & Eggs without guilt on the weekend. And there always seems to be a bit more time. Perhaps it's because the days/nights become thirds rather than halves. The morning, the afternoon and the evening. And while I think we should be on daylight saving permanently, it's a bit like another public holiday when those clocks go back.

S.O. is buying his big pieces of bacon again. Nearly time for them to be hung on the butcher's hook in the kitchen, but not quite yet. He makes a damn fine B&E, does S.O. and manages to have it all hot at the same time. However, I do think his bread needs work. He does favour the really crappy white spongy ooky stuff.

Saturday night with Wibby and Fairy (not their real names) who have announced their forthcoming marriage. Marvellous.

Sunday was the Breakfast of Champions. I then proceeded to sit on my butt reading Nigel Slater's 'Kitchen Diaries', the inspiration for this blog... In which I found the Onions Baked with Parmesan & Cream. Goes like this:

However many onions you need, boil them for about 25 minutes until tender.

Slice from root to tip. Put in baking tray on about 180 degrees with 300 ml cream, and some parmesan. I also put in thyme sprigs and a little big of nutmeg. DEEElicious. Even S.O. couldn't believe he was hoe-ing into so much onion.

And I tell you, you can just feel that they're preparing you for the influenza onslaught ahead.
