Dinner for one = loathe it = not tonight = with Mrs Jangs Fried Eggs = scrummy ...

There's only one thing, yes only one thing,
that irks me about living alone ...
that's ...
dinner for one!

If I allowed myself I'd detest it ...
but what's the point of going on about it?

Usually I cook enough for two or three nights.

Tonight my taste buds are dancing ...

1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 free-range eggs
1 desertspoon oyster sauce
pinch ground white pepper
1/4 cup finely sliced spring onions (scallions)
red bird’s eye chillie, finely sliced

Heat oil in a hot wok until surface seems to shimmer slightly.
Crack eggs into a small bowl, pour into hot oil.
After 1 minute reduce heat to medium,
allowing the underside of eggs to become
firm and crisp – the yolks should still be runny at this point.
Carefully slide a spatula under the eggs,
then pour off and discard the oil.
Replace eggs and cook for a further minute till crisp.

Gently remove eggs from wok
drain off excess oil, ease onto a plate.

Drizzle eggs with oyster sauce, garnish with pepper,
spring onions and chillies.

I had the eggs with a small piece of grilled lamb rump ...

couldn't wait to tell you how scrumptious it was!

We are all so different. I actually enjoy dinner for one. I like the peace and tranquility. I think if I lived alone 'til I was 100 I would always enjoy cooking for myself.

Love the egg recipe but I would leave out the oyster sauce - that would spoil it for me.
