You Can't Help Liking...

PP Roy - In At The Beep End

The tomatoes have taken over the raised bed in the garden, there was purple sprouting broccoli, chillies and red onions in there aswell but they have been completely swamped. When it rains the chunky smell of tomato plants is lush. They were never fed so they're all cherry size which suits me fine, so it's tomatoes in soups, sauces, curries everything. Anyway yesterday was a lazy Sunday so it was dirty scramble with coffee for breakfast.

Dirty Scramble:
(01) - Forage in the garden and pick a pint of tomatoes straight from the vine, clean them under the tap and then add them to a pan with a bit of olive oil and a lot of black pepper. Best way to do this is to squeeze them until they pop making sure not to get the seeds over the wall, t-shirt or Port Merrion hen.
(02) - Put the lid on and let them simmer for about 5 minutes, they should breakdown and get nice and red and seedy. While you are doing this get the toast on, I usually have 2 slice with butter. Also take three eggs from the hen and beat into a mulch.
(03) - Once the tomatoes are cooked, pop them on a metal plate and place under the grill to keep warm at a middling heat. Then back to the pan which should have a lot of tomato seeds, black pepper bits and murky looking oil left in it.
(04) - Take the egg mixture and pour it into the dirty pan, faff about with a wooden spoon until it starts getting a bit scrambly and prepare your plate with the toast cut into triangles.
(05) - Then plop the tomatoes and dirty scramble on top of the toast, take your coffee (which you would have prepared earlier) and saunter into the garden to woof it down. Swell.

Anyway afterwards I was washing up listening to the Rephlex Records 'Rephlexions' CD which came out a few years ago and this track came on. Did you know it is the perfect accompaniment to cleaning eggy pans. I was dancing at the sink!
