I know I say this every time I stay in Ramsgate but I LOVE waking up beside the sea. Always makes me smile, even when the weather is grey and overcast. It was not ridiculously cold and was not raining so we agreed to go on a walk towards Pegwell Bay.
First of all though, breakfast. I had a bowl of fat free vanilla yogurt with blueberries and a cup of tea. Consumed in the first floor sitting room in the large bay window, overlooking the marina.
We walked along the promenade until we came to the Hands and Molecule statue which someone just had to climb.
I admire children’s effortless athleticism and seeing a fun opportunity to play everywhere they go.
Sense of achievement.
It was a blustery walk which is always invigorating. We went back to the house and had a simple lunch of eggy bread which I had with salad. If you have never made eggy bread, then do it as it’s very easy. We had it for lunch but it makes a good breakfast too.
Whisk the eggs (I used one for each of us) on a wide plate.
Put the bread in the egg and let it soak up the egg for about a minute and then turn over so both sides of the bread end up eggy.
Genty fry over a low heat until the egg is cooked.
Serve. I had mine with tomato, mixed salad greens and beetroot. No salad dressing or other accompaniments except salt and pepper. Bon appétit!
We then went to Margate as James has never been to the Turner Contemporary or even The Cupcake Cafe, a favourite of mine.
If we take a close look at what we all ordered,
you can see there is only food for 2. Yes, I managed to resist a cake which is not easy as they are fabulous !!!! I just had a cup of tea and enjoyed the ambience of this charming and pretty little cafe.
Then on the the Turner Contemporary. That couple are still kissing.
I don’t remember ever going back to an exhibition before but this one is worth a second visit. If you live locally and have not been to the exhibition of youth, pop along, it’s definitely worth a look and I noticed things today I had missed before. And enjoyed some of the things I really enjoyed before again. I enjoy the space inside and views from the building too.
Back home I made a chicken and goats cheese supper I had been recommended by a friend, Laura. I didn’t quite have the same ingredients as her recipe but it was lovely. As I have some chicken and goat’s cheese left over, I will make the recipe exactly as she sent me tomorrow. But for today, I had a chicken breast, stuffed with goat’s cheese and chopped chives, served with steamed green beans and mashed sweet potato.
It was delicious and I look forward to more tomorrow.
I finished the day with a sliver of the brownie pumpkin pie I made yesterday. Harvey had a massive slice so it is all finished now and will no longer tempt me. Until I make it again, which I will as it was lovely.
Today was a very successful diet day as we did a reasonable walk and I ate healthily. I hope weigh in tomorrow shows a loss.
