Eggs Benedict

 

It has become a bit of a tradition that my husband’s family gather together once a year for a happy luncheon, where we can all catch up with each other.

Yesterday Son and I attended this luncheon at St Kilda’s Café and Bistro in Cambridge.  There were about 24 of us altogether and it was great to meet up with them all, especially as many of them are now into their 80s and not as mobile as they used to be.

I chose Eggs Benedict for my luncheon dish and was not disappointed.  The eggs were cooked absolutely perfectly, the hollandaise sauce was delicious, and it was paired with a yummy chunk of freshly smoked salmon.  The hash brown (potato) was a little much but that was easily left on my plate (just me, I noted others ate all of theirs!).




With good food, friendly service, and a happy family, the day turned out really well.

I hope everyone has a happy weekend 😊

Margaret.

  2. We like those kinds of gatherings. Will younger generations carry on their own version of it do you think?

    1. Perfectly cooked eggs: white firm and fully cooked but not hard, yolk cooked but still soft and runny :)

  5. I do love a family reunion, I also love Eggs Benedict although my mum used to put spinach in hers and I do too, I have never looked up to see if that is what it should have so it might just be our family!

    1. I have had the dish before, served with spinach underneath the eggs. Nice, but I am not a great fan of spinach! :)

  14. As family members get older it's good to have happy occasions to catch up with each other. Otherwise we only do it at funerals. Your meal looks hum.
