Rice meal.

I was in a pinch of having nothing to eat for breakfast, so, as always, I made something out of nothing.

I boiled 1 cup of rice (happened to be Thai fragrant) and, while the rice was cooling down, I made this:

Olive oil lots
Onion 1
Celery sticks 2
Paprika 0,5
Miso paste a big teaspoon
Wasabi paste 5cm :)

Cooked everything, seasoned the rice with I can't say what, sort of violet seaweed (really good) and then mixed in the vegetables. Yum! By the way, some sushi vinegar would have been nice in the vegetables.

A Luxurious Pineaple & Goat's Cheese & Ham Pizza.

I guess it turned out to be a luxurious version of Pineapple-Ham pizza, but hey, who doesn't like luxuriousness? Well I love it!
I tried green olives at first but it wasn't good and when I replaced it with pineapple pieces, I loved it till the last bite, which is usually very hard because there's always lots of pizza.

Puff pastry
Passata (or you should maybe dilute tomato pasta)
Herbs (Rosemary, Basil, Oregano)
Fresh Mozzarella
Canned pineapple
Soft goat's cheese

Even if you get a rolled sheet of puff pastry, place it on a much bigger piece of baking paper, rub it with flour and roll it some more. Look at it this way: the bigger the surface, the more delicious delicious toppings you will be able to fit on it. And you best believe, you'll want to put lots, because if you wanted to eat plain pastry, you'd have a slice of stupid British bread. So roll it some more, stab it with a fork across the surface (very important), spread lots of passata over it and sprinkle with herbs. I love rosemary. So, this is when I put this in the oven. I'm always worried the dough will not cook properly and the passata will be too watery. This is probably the wrong way, but it works for me every time, so. While the thing's in the oven until the corners turn orange, you are probably already peeling the mozzarella. I just realized peeling preserves water, which we don't need so you might as well cut it into thin slices. Same goes for ham (you bought a lump, right? not some cheap sliced ham, yes?) and pineapple. The chunks are always too big where I get it from. OK. So top the pizza in this order (what do you mean it's still in the oven??): mozarella, ham, pineapple, goat's cheese. Good. No other cheese is needed. No need to ruin the chef-d' oeuvre. Oven, between 200 and 250, I guess. 250oh-shiii200. Pineapple makes it watery so don't rush it or you'll be eating a wet pizza.

Bacon Wrapped Eggs. Sweet Jesus.
