Chorizo, Potato & Poached Egg Hot Salad With Balsamic Dressing

東京は、桜がすっかり満開のところも多いようですね〜。関西は、まだ咲き始めたところのようですが。インスタでお友達の桜の写真がたくさん上がっていて、羨ましく眺めています。桜はやっぱり良いですね〜。来年はこの時期に帰れるといいな〜、と思っていますが、どうかな。

Cherry blossoms are in full bloom in many places in Tokyo, I see many of my friends are uploading pictures of them on Instagram.  They just started to bloom in Kansai, so I guess it won’t be in full bloom for a few days yet there.  I love cherry blossoms in Japan, they are really special to Japanese and the older I get the more I appreciate them.  I’m hoping I can be in Japan this time of year next year to view them.

親しいお友達の本帰国が迫ってきてさみしかぎりですが、そろそろ今年は本帰国ではと思っていたお友達が残られてちょっとほっとしたり。お別れの多い季節ですが、今年はお1人だけですみそうかな。一度に何人も帰られると、本当に凹みます。

It’s also the time many Japanese people move and one of my closest friends is moving back to Japan very soon, which is very sad.  However, it looks like she is the only friend moving this time, another friend we thought was likely to be moved is staying.  It really affects me when a few friends leave at the same time.

さて、今日の夕食は、チョリソとポテトのホットサラダ。冷たいレタスの上に暖かいチョリソ、ポテト、玉ねぎ、パプリカをのせて、ポーチドエッグをのせて、高級なバルサミコを温めてかけます。前回、ポテトはフライパンで焼くのでなくローストしてみたらその方が楽だったので、今回も。今日はパプリカも一緒にローストしました。玉ねぎとチョリソーは一緒だと焦げてしまうと思いますし、すぐに炒まるので炒めました。美味しくできましたが、シンガポールで手に入るチョリソが硬いのが残念です。

Tonight’s dinner was Hot Salad Of Chorizo & Potato. I put hot chorizo, potato, onion & pepper (recent addition) on a cold bed of crisp salad leaves.  I used to cook potato in a frying pan but I roasted it in the oven last time and it was easier so that’s what I did today.   I also roasted red pepper at the same time, but sauteed onion and chorizo in a frying pan as they’ll probably burn if I add them to the rest. I put all the cooked vegetables and chorizo on lettuce, add some poached eggs and pour some expensive balsamic vinegar in the hot pan, let it bubble and poor it over as a dressing.  It was very good, but the only thing is that chorizo I can get in Singapore is quite chewy.

以前からポーチドエッグを作るのが下手で困っていましたが、前回 Nigela Lawson Turkish Egg で使っているポーチドエッグの作り方で作ってみたら上手く行き、今日も上手くきれいに出来ました!

I could never make poached eggs very well until the last time when I tried Nigella Lawson’s method, which works well for me.  They came out very nicely shaped.
