pan-fried broccoli with chorizo, new potatoes and eggs

Another night of report writing ahead for Mrs Barnes, gets off to a semi-slow start as Milo resisted sleeping for longer than is strictly necessary. However for once this isn't particularly vexing tonight as we're all a little tired from holiday, and I'm more than happy to pretend to be asleep in his bed for half an hour. And then to actually be asleep for slightly longer.

Anyway, I've got a fun experimental dish to construct when I do eventually get up. I'm slightly nervous because although on paper - chorizo, eggs, broccoli - this should be right up Ana's street, she's resisted so far. And potatoes aren't her thing. How little I know her - she loves it!

I suspect the difference might be using oh-so-seasonal Jersey New Potatoes, which are creamier than normal new potatoes, and off-set the spicy chorizo beautifully. Also, next time I might make the eggs softer boiled, to provide a bit more unctuousness, and maybe bunging some cherry toms into the mixer...

  1. Yum, this looks delicious.... just the right combo of healthy and hedonistic! And yes, creamy, melting soft boiled eggs.
