Egg & Chips.

Wednesday 13th April 2011

“I think that might be my favourite dinner ever.” Announced my wife as we were clearing the table.

When I’m cooking chips my wife always inquires if a salad will be required. (She’s the chief salad maker.) It’s a rhetorical question really as she knows full well that it would be unthinkable. Chips & salad are like grapes & cheese or chocolate & coffee or even peanut butter & jelly. From her point of view, you couldn’t have one without the other. It’s think it’s the combination of the hot, crispy chips and the cool, fresh salad that make it an inseparable duo. The coming together of good and evil.

My son, Zephyrus, can take or leave chips on their own but when a fried egg is placed on top, begging to have a chip plunged into its golden yolk, he generally obliges, repeatedly. The salad is a welcome relief and a good palette cleanser after he’s had enough of the chips.

I am just pleased when everyone is happy with what they’ve got on their plate.

So all round, everyone’s a winner.

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    “The coming together of good and evil” – I love it! It’s like cereal and milk, chips and salsa, yin and yang…. terrific.

    I have never had a french fry dipped in an egg….I’m not sure what to make of that. I have had a french fry dipped in a chocolate shake, though – it’s good stuff. But that is more evil-and-evil than good-and-evil… 😉

    P.S. What’s in your salad? It looks amazing! Your wife did a good job with that one.

    Can’t have chips without salad, they combine so well. And egg and chips go so well too.
