Red pepper, egg and olive Ciabatta 

Toast-it, Vegetarian

I swoon over a nicely topped ciabatta, I often go for the typical bruschetta or mushroomy mix but this offered something different.

As you can imagine it was really very easy and quick to make and it was delicious. The sweet peppers twinned with the salty olives worked really well, as did the crunchy bread and creamy egg. 

A great Friday night treat.

Chicken and Aubergine melt

Any of you lovers who have been following my blog will know that my other half Gavin is currently in China. 😓

This is bad enough but what’s worse is that Friday night is usually a fun food night!

Now I’m currently on a super health kick and it doesn’t feel so fun cooking for one on a Friday so I at least tried to make an effort tonight with this chicken and Aubergine melt!

Yes it was nice. I love a nice crispy ciabatta and melted mozzarella is just dreamy.

I sound kind of despondent about It I know. Really, on a Thursday night I may gush a little more about this dish but It just didn’t feel naughty enough for a Friday (for a start I’m sated but not stuffed, that’s great, but feels boring) CONFUSED!
