Superfood Slice


I’m not a fan of The Hobbit or The Lord of The Rings stuff. I’m sure it’s super amazing and really deep and blah blah blah, but I can’t get into it. I’ve tried. In fact, in our first year of marriage this was one of the major points of contention. Anyway, I have watched the series out of a selfless love for my husband and I learnt one thing.

There is a such a thing as SECOND BREAKFAST.

If the only reason I wasted three days sitting in front of the TV watching dragons and fairies and whatever else it is was to learn that such a meal exists, then I am thankful for that experience.

I think these days it’s known as brunch. Either way it’s delicious.

We went to our friends’ house for brunch the other day, (a perfect meal time for having friends over – something I forgot to mention in my post about entertaining with kids the other day) but my friend cooked this. And it was amazing.

I sort of guessed the ingredients, half remembering what she was calling out the front door as we were leaving, and half using what I could find in my fridge and this is what we came up with. Forget zucchini slice, this is super-food slice.
