My brother has a friend who only buys souvenirs when on holiday to replace something at home. Fair enough, everyone is always trying to clear the clutter. However a well chosen souvenir can bring back wonderful memories of a holiday.
Serve olives in the dish you brought back from a Mediterranean holiday, put some flowers in a vase from Denmark, wear a kimono from Tokyo and there you are reliving your magical moments.
Here is my recipe for the day which is perfect for a Summer evening, whether on holiday or at home, easy-peasy and served with holiday souvenirs turns out to be a cheerful meal.
4 courgettes, washed, dried and grated
2 tbps milk
oil for cooking
Beat the eggs and milk together and add them to the grated courgettes. Stir in the cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Heat a small amount of olive oil in a non stick pan and pour in the egg and courgette mixture.
Cook very slowly over a low heat, about ten minutes.
Slide onto a plate and flip over back into the pan.
Continue cooking over a low heat until set.
Don't hurry the cooking, it must be set but not brown. Have a glass of wine, olives, relax and think about your holiday.
Serve with a tomato and onion salad, olives and fresh bread.
|Quick and easy, use your favourite non stick pan|
|Let the sunshine in|
