Happy Valentines Day 2021

Yes, it's Valentines Day 2021, and I wish you a happy day! "February 14th has become one of the key dates on the commercial calendar, with romantic Brits spending an estimated £1.5 billion on cards and gifts (and Americans as much as $19.6 billion). But behind the commercialisation of Valentine's Day lies a fascinating history that can be traced back to ancient Rome" - read more here


Happy Valentines Day
Why not start the day with a special breakfast

Soft, creamy avocado wrapped in crispy pancetta, perfect for dipping in your morning egg

1 ripe avocado, cut into slices
100g smoked pancetta rashers

Carefully drop the eggs into the water and boil for 5 mins for runny yolks.
2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a non-stick pan and wrap each avocado slice in pancetta.

I haven't seen anyone eat a boiled egg in an egg cup in years! We generally take one as part of our lunch when we are out for a full day of birding.
