Breakfast without electricity

with 2 comments








James and our two children made me breakfast on the fire the old fashioned way, it was delicious! fresh bread baking over the embers filled with egg, no electricity just candles and fire. We used turf our friend gave us from a nearby bog and charcoal that was left over from our Wedding feast.

The lanterns were all made for our wedding too. They are recycled tins that have been drilled into to create the holes for light then either wrapped in tissue paper with p.v.a. glue or painted with house paint. The jars are recycled or salvaged from the garden then painted with nail varnish ( the old salvaged ones). The more modern ones are wrapped in a layer of pink tissue paper. We had a lovely lighting ceremony one night in the garden, I will post the photographs James took of it, sometime soon.

Happy Breakfasts!

  1. Ahhh Marianne and James,those great photos of cooking bread and breakfast over the fire has brought back some lovely memories. It is just how my Grandma used to cook our food, over a fire made with with turf we had brought from the bog. Wonderful that the old ways are still carrying on … Love to all X
