Comfort Food.

It's still wet, really wet. The first Tropical Storm of the season looks like it is revving up. The humidity is horrendous. The washing won't dry. TBH is struggling with a piece of software that refuses to behave...

So I am serving up good comfort food. No doubt bad for the figure (bit past caring about that now!) but oh so good for the soul.

Bacon avocado hamburgers, first tasted at Lagoonies in St Martens.It's not the same these days, it was redeveloped and is now just one more marina cum restaurant. Shame still time moves on.. It was a dive of a place but there was somebody there who could really cook. Tasted these and never looked back. Just make up your own hamburger recipe. Grill a large bun on each side till warmed and slightly browned.
Fast grill hamburgers.

Assemble with baby spinach leaves, sliced roma tomato, half a slice avocado, burger, slices of crispy grilled bacon. Top with a melted cheese slice and enjoy!

Also on the menu today Double Chocolate Muffins..


90z flour
2 tsps baking powder
1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
4oz sugar
4tbsps hersheys cocoa powder
1 egg
240ml milk
90ml oil
two handfuls chocolate chips

Sieve flour,cocoa powder, baking powder and bicarb together in bowl. Add sugar and 1 handful of choc chips.
In another bowl mix egg, milk and oil.

When oven is heated to Gas 5, 400 F and muffin cases are prepared mix the two bowls together quickly.Sprinkle remaining choc chips on the top. Once combined put in tins and immediately into the oven
Bake for around 20 minutes until well risen and browned.

I have found that the faster you get them in to the oven once the mix is ready the better the rise will be...
