Raaya is keeping me on a role with fresh twitter content.
I think when you are a three year old and a free spirit everything brings joy in a way only a three year old would understand.
What surprises me but should have been obvious with elder siblings, is her grasp of a vocabulary which is beyond what my other three had at her age.
Her use of my phone is another thing that gives me pause.
I often find myself looking at her little thumb, how it moves with agility around the touch screen.
She uses Siri to choose her favorite programmes; its come to a point that I have to switch off the wifi on my phone. A few minutes later, I find her saying“internet”repeatedly on Siri, Guess what Miss smarty pants was trying to do?
She was trying to connect the wifi through Siri (a challenge to all the IT techs out there from a three year old). By the way, haven’t you ever been curious of that voice?
Writing about Siri made me want to know more about her, so popped on over to Google, did a search and came across an article done by CNN about the voice. Incase you’re interested just type bennette-siri-iphone on their search box and you’ll be able to read it.
I learnt that Siri is actually called, Interactive voice response in short IVR, It’s one of those good to know facts that might come in handy if you want the world to think you’re a bit smarter than the rest.
Now as I was writing earlier here are a few twitter worthy and favourited remarks of my Fourth child.
“My three year old picks a book, Happy when she was flipping the pages and then I hear, “blah,blah,blah” laugh or cry ?
“And later she uses the same Blah to shut her elder brother arguing with her”
“Vocabulary of my three year old, I phone, subscribe, disgusting, freaky, experiment etc..I’m sure they’re not from kinder”.
Now for today’s recipe, you already know I love quick fixes, I believe this breakfast recipe should be in it.
The tricky part comes when you are required to flip the bread. All I can say is, take your time and get the spatula right underneath the bread and with a flick of your wrist, flip it over.
I’m using cheese here because my kids are fans of it and I was thinking why not a Sri lankan twist?
Finely diced green chillies and onions or a spoonful of Seeni sambol or Katta Sambol.
The choices are endless, why don’t you send me a few of your own ideas. How would you make this eggs in a hole sandwich?
What you will need
Slices of bread
Butter both sides of the bread.
Stack two slices of bread on each other. Place a cookie cutter or a metal object that is sharp, cut a hole in the middle using a gentle twisting motion.
Now take a slice of cheese and place it as above, once it’s done place another bread on top of it .
What you’ve made so far is a Cheese sandwich with a hole.
Head on to the stove and lets make this sandwich extra special.
Maintain medium heat and place the sandwich on the pan as you are not using oil to toast the bread.
Remember there is no rush to do this part but gently break an egg into the sandwich.
Be extra careful not to drop any egg shells. Once this is done let the egg cook.
Cook until you see the egg white turn well, white. Give it a minute too cook then gently place a spatula underneath the sandwich, and yes again, gently flip it over.
A dash of Pepper and Salt and you are basically done with your sandwich. If you notice the image above, you’ll find my sandwich slightly burnt.
Lesson, never rush or leave the sandwich unattended even for a second.
