Well we all know the saying...Don't run before your can walk, yeah? *nodding* Seems I forgot this yesterday. I escaped R&R HQ with ML, my sister, her fiancé and the little ones and we headed up the coast to Hornsea. We enjoyed an old fashioned day by the sea and after lunch we spent most of the afternoon on the beach. Watching ML and the little ones jumping over waves was joyful. We had a great time...but it is safe to say I began paying for it last night so today I am resting and being good. *insert expletives here folks* Lesson learnt...I promise. lol.

So this morning we needed a brunch that was minimal effort but packed with flavour and goodness. I felt like I was suffering from the worst I craved one of those breakfasts/brunches that would satisfy the demands my body was making. We had some leftover steamed potatoes and cabbage and it was quickly decided...Lets go Retro again and have Bubble and Squeak!

Now I have to explain..we were so hungry that ML almost forgot to take photos so had to take last minute action shots. lol.

For the first time in a good year ML and I ate the same meal..well I say the same...mine was cooked with oil and had a great deal of pepper in it..whereas ML's was cooked in butter and had no seasonings...but was close.

My version was perfect for me with potatoes cut into chunks and not mashed, just crunchy steamed Sweetheart cabbage pieces and soft cooked onions...made perfect by heaps of freshly cracked black pepper. All sautéed together in a skillet...a delight to eat. I much prefer mine like this as opposed to the formed pattie version that is then shallow fried. Not being a fan of fried anything, eh?  We sat quite happily on the bed munching through my bowls of this classic dish. lol.
