Woke up this morning having finally had what feels like a really good sleep, to the sound of rain, then lovely sun (obviously I was seeing and feeling the sun bit), then more rain. Then ominous grey skies. London in spring, so not all that much of a surprise. Having caught up with various bodies back home in Sydney, done a bit of reading and generally procrastinated myself into a stupor, I decided it was time to make a move on the food front and trundle down to see what sort of damage I could do in Sainsbury's.
It being past midday and various bodies in need of a bit of a kickstart, I've gone with some smoked salmon, creme fraiche, chives and my secret ingredient - horseradish cream. Oh, and the all important onion bagels. Fairly standard really, except for the horseradish, which just seems to give everything else a bit of a lift and generally wakes up the bleary headed.
SMOKED SALMON AND CREME FRAICHE WITH A KICK
100g smoked salmon off cuts (the 88p one from Sainsbury's works a treat)
300g tub reduced fat creme fraiche
handful of chives, finely chopped
1 tsp horseradish cream
salt to taste
cracked pepper to taste
onion bagels (or plain, or whatever you like, really)
Combine all bar the bagels in a bowl. Mix well, cover with cling film and leave in the fridge for about half an hour (or the time it takes to snuggle back in bed with a good book, a cuppa, a loved [or lusty or both] one, etc).
Decide it's time to make a move to get something out of the day.
Slice bagels (or bread of your choice) and toast. Schmear with the smoked salmon concoction. Enjoy!
