If you've read my blog for a while, you know about my ongoing love of bikes in Europe, specifically in The Netherlands. I saw this sad little bicycle in London along the Thames a couple of weekends ago. Poor thing. I have photos of happier bikes here and here.
We went to a nearby garden for tea on Saturday. Or rather I should say Roxi and I had tea while Mr. DJ and Trudy mucked around in the cold but sunny afternoon.
Roxi and I had a cozy time inside the cafe's wall-of-windows. It was a great view from where we sat, but we especially admired all of the sturdy folks who were sunning on the terrace in their winter coats. Brr!
Anyway, what I really want to report is I ate a wonderful cake that I must find an excuse to make one day soon. Have you ever tried St. Clement's cake? Actually, now that I look at the recipe, I realize that it would probably be easier, and better for the waistline, to go back to the garden and enjoy an occasional tea with a slice of that nutty, citrusy cake.
And speaking of food, I made Homesick Texan's Mexican chorizo and flour tortillas this weekend. Hurray! Huevos con Chorizo breakfast tacos in England at last. Recipe? Scramble some eggs with pre-cooked (and drained) Mexican chorizo. Fill a flour tortilla with the cooked egg/chorizo mixture and top with a little grated cheddar cheese and pico de gallo (a mix of cilantro/coriander, diced onions, and diced tomatoes), if you like. Mmmm.
BTW, I didn't have Guajillo chilies on hand for the chorizo recipe, though I see they are available in the UK from MexGrocer. I used Ancho chili powder instead (shhh). It was still good. And while we're in the Mexican breakfast mood, I just remembered I posted a Migas recipe a while back. I need to make that soon too.
