I've been away for Australia's Queen's Birthday long weekend. Three of our friends had their 25th birthday parties together and we all got stayed at an awesome penthouse at the Gold Coast. Beers, hot tub and non stop eating is the ultimate way to reward yourselves! Now I feel like I should start planning my birthday, which isn't too far away.
It is a little bit sad that tomorrow I have to go back to reality. To cheer ourselves up, Pham and I made a yummy lunch to make our troubles go away. All weekend, our friends and I indulged in bacon that was baked to crispy chips, so we decided we'd treat ourselves to this devilish fattyness once more. I was also very keen on trying out my shiny new portable convection oven that I bought for $35 from Aldi - why have I never shopped there before? Now that I've used it, I want to cook everything in there. It is sooo easy to use, cooks food pretty quickly, super easy to clean and doesn't use a tonne of electricity. Love it!
Baked Eggs and Honey Baked Bacon
You will need -
- 100g leg ham
- 150g baby spinach

- 2 tbs minced garlic
- 250g streaky bacon
