My new favourite lunch

A friend dropped by with her daughter for an impromptu lunch the other day and the best I could rustle up from my nearly bare cupboards was boiled eggs and soldiers.  It  brought back happy memories of saturday tv dinners in front of the A Team and was so easy to knock up in minutes. I predict a microtrend happening in this house.

Owing to my incomplete crockery collection, my friend had to fashion some cups out of the egg box while I dealt with the soldiers. There was sellotape involved and everything. I don’t think she’ll mind me describing the result as, erm, crafty. Conclusion: I am now on a quest for some egg cups. Here are a few of my favourites…
