From a certain time you can buy Frugo in selected TESCO stores in Edinburgh. Frugo was a cult fruit drink in the ’90s in Poland. The brand was reincarnated after a decade taken off the market. Get seduced!
1 can of baked beans
eggs how much you like
bacon (we’re using Polish bacon)
butter for toast
spices (salt, pepper and herbs if you like)
Slice the bacon thinly and fry on the pan untill sizzling.
Meanwhile heat the beans.
When the bacon is sizzling, add the eggs and fry on low heat.
Cover the pan with a lid so that the whites cover the yolks.
This is about time to make your toast.
And the breakfast is ready!
4 medium eggs
4 tbsp caster sugar
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
2x250g (8½ oz, 2 boxes) Mascarpone cheese (Mascarpone from Asda and Morrisons are the best for this)
250ml (9fl oz) cold strong black coffee, espresso
200g (7oz, 1 box) sponge fingers
unsweetened cocoa powder
Beat the egg whites until stiff.
Beat the egg yolks with sugar and vanilla, add mascarpone until thick and creamy. Next add the beaten egg whites and gently mix.
Use sponge fingers to line a serving dish.
Mix the cold coffee with rum in a shallow bowl. Pour half of it over the sponge fingers.
Pour half of Mascarpone cream into the dish.
Sprinkle the cream with cocoa powder.
Dip the rest of the sponge fingers in the liquid, soaking both sides and arrange on top.
Pour in the remaining half of the cream and smooth the surface. Sprinkle with cocoa powder using a small sieve. Put it to the fridge for a few hours. :)
…and now you can savour :)
Yesterday two pandas, Tian Tian (“sweetie”) and Yang Guang (“sunshine”), arrived to Edinburgh Zoo from China. The pandas’ new home cost £250,000. “Officials hope their presence will boost tourism and the Scottish economy. The Scottish government said the loan of the pandas symbolised a “growing friendship” between Scotland and China.” …”Edinburgh Zoo, which is run by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, is to pay $1m (£600,000) to the Chinese authorities each year for the pandas, which are due to stay at the zoo for at least 10 years.” BBC NEWS
Locals have got different opinions about it :)
It was a nice day for a trip. Target – Seacliff beach.
Passing by the Longniddry Bents, East Lothian. It was only 5 C, and very windy :) You can find people there who love kite surfing.
On the way to the beach we passed large herd of horses :)
Seacliff beach, what can I say…
Have you seen the ghost in Tantallon castle? :)
Seacliff Harbour is described as the smallest harbour in the British Isles.
Being a few times on the Seacliff beach I saw people practising coasteering. They have been climbing onto rocks and jumping into tight water holes. This looks very frightening!
Seacliff beach is the most impresive beach in Scotland and my favourite!
It’s dead easy :)
175g (6oz) self-raising flour
160g (5oz) or more if you like :) golden caster sugar (or white sugar)
3 tbsp milk
1tsp baking powder
200g margarine or butter
2tsp vanilla sugar
2 or 3 big, sour apples (I mostly like Bramley Apples), or if you like you can use plums instead of apples
Beat the egg whites to a light froth. Beat the egg yolks with sugar and vanilla, add margarine and make this creamy. Next add flour, baking powder and milk then mix it well. Finally add the beaten egss whites and gently mix. Cut the peeled apples into quarters and then eighths. Lay the apple slices on the batter so they just cover the batter
Preheat the oven to 170°C, 338F. Bake the cake for 50-55 minutes.
