This is weird. In fairness when we saw it in the book we said – that looks weird, we should try it.
If you think about it too long, you won’t try it. Because it’s dates and fried egg mixed together. That’s it nothing else.
I feel kind of sucked in by the narrative under the ‘Western International Breakfast’ where the author says ‘Because the best food in the world is often the simplest’.
This may be true – but only of other dishes – not this one!
Freya didn’t like this – as was apparent when we swapped plates once I’d eaten three quarters of mine and she’d merely moved her food around the plate. Obviously I have concerns for how regular I might become having consumed 250g of dates – but I’m sure I’ll be fine!
I only made this while I waited for the Ocado man to deliver our groceries. Freya was hungry and in need of a quick nibble. I should have waited 15 minutes – although I guess I’d have made it eventually.
Have I got across to you all that I won’t make this again? Good!
