Sleepy Cat

Ok so just to change things around a little Thursdays dinner is out, Fridays breakfast is in.
Here we have dry cured Manuka smoked bacon from the local organic butchery. This particular supplier calls his free range bacon 'free walkin'. Manuka is a tree that grows wild in New Zealand, it has very small fine leaves that can be used to make tea (thus its other common name 'tea tree') and the wood is very hard and when burned has a very sweet smoke. It is often used for smoking and flavouring meat, fish etc.
The bacon was combined with these fantastic free range eggs (yes the eggs are allowed to roam and forage freely on the farm) rocket (arugula) and a shop bought Hollandaise. Up until recently we would have made our own hollandaise sauce however a company called Delmaine has recently bought out a range of pre prepared sauces which are much lower fat than normal (20 grams of fat per 100 grams rather than the usual 60 or 70), very flavoursome and keeps in the fridge when opened for around 3-4 weeks! Bonus.



And here is a picture of a very sleepy cat...
