DH is a scramble egg fiend, and is always messing about with different ideas.
He does something similar to this...but he was more than happy to give this a go.
He thought that this was great....his description was...'full of different flavours'....and 'mmmmmmmm'.
I thought the colours were amazing, and would have got a photo if DH hadn't been standing ready with his fork, and fearing I was about to get stabbed, I backed off!
A sure fire hit Kate-anything that calms and satisfies a grizzly DH in the morning is a winner!
Made for PRMR.
