We welcome Autumn to New Zealand on Tuesday. Many i’ve spoken to are less enthusiastic than me when I remind them of this but I think it is my favourite season. The days are still warm but the nights get chilly, inspiring an extra layer or two and you might actually feel like eating something warm and comforting again. There is still plenty of produce around and still light in the evenings to prepare it in. Bliss.
This morning I woke up to find the rain from the night before had disappeared and got up to get to the markets at a decent time. By 10am I was back home – breakfast ready and back in bed. I am a huge fan of breakfast in bed. Today’s choice was buttery wholemeal toast with boiled eggs and heirloom cherry tomatoes. I’ve been seeing so many market haul photos featuring delicious tomatoes and had to get some of my own. These were sweet, fresh, colourful and totally worth the (kind of) early wake up – oh and did I mention it took me all of 10 minuted to get ready. Perfect! Read on for the recipe.
