    Perfect Pixie - I'm beginning to think you may have either grown up in my family....or you are my mother in disguise..... another regular meal at our house as I was growing up. mmmmmmmmmmmmm runny eggs to dip the soldiers in

    YUM! I don't even toast my bread, kind of fun to have flimsy soldiers!

    it was my first for a very long time!!! perhaps a little too runny for me and would love to add some pepper or salt (just a little though!!) but otherwise a blast from my childhood and very yummy :)

    I love eggs and soldiers!! Cooking for 3 minutes made the perfect runny yolk for my DH, 4 minutes gave a still runny, but firmer yolk for me as in the photo I took. Thanks for posting this yummy treat! :)


I lived in new zealand for 8 years of my life, now england for the past 8 years. I go to boarding school on the east coast of england. I have friends from all over the world, my best friend is canadian and also lived in france, so her mum and her for that fact, are mean chefs, boy do i like going to her house. I recently found out I am intollerant to wheat so have found it difficult to give up such easy foods to find and now have to search harder. I also have 2 leaks in my heart, one on a valve going in and one on a valve going out. A top carteoligist from London told me as long as I don't get pregnant for a while (I should hope not, I'm only 15) or eat fatty foods, my heart would do allright. He said he didn't want to operate on me yet, beacause there is a operation coming in the next 10 years which is lazer, so he wants me to wait, but he said I was fit and healthy and had no need to worry, yet....... when i was younger i dreamed of being a choreographer or a marine biolagist, then i wanted to work for vouge magazine, then get married and move to barbados and raise a family where the only thing that passes anyones lips will be home grown or hand made, a bit ambitious i know, hehe. But now my dream is to be a laywer and help others that really need it, and hopefully move back to my roots and bring up a family there For lent i have given up refined sugars and it is so hard and i am only 3 days into it, i was starving at school, opened my tuk box only to find marshmallows and smarties and a box of cereal, i think cereal is about to become my best friend over the next 6 weeks. LOL EDITED 30TH AUGUST; Last night at 3:30am, my best friend lost her battle to cancer and it has made me realise how important it is to live life to the full and take every opportunity thrown at us. She was a special girl and only 15 - wherever she is now though, she is out of her suffering. I have no doubt that she went straight to heaven. Lord rest your soul. i also have a lot of favourite sayings, here are some of them "shoot for the moon, even if you don't make it, you'll land amoung the stars" "I'm on a seafood diet, see food and eat it" "smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu, when someone smiled at me today, i started smiling too, i passed around the corner and someone saw me grin, when he smiled i realised, i'd passed it on to him. I thought about that smile, then i realised it's worth, a single smile just like mine could pass around the earth. So if you feel a smile begin, don't leave undetected. Lets start an epedemic quick, and get the world infected!!!"
