    It's a really thin folded and stuffed pancake parcel (Corned beef and egg) which is then fried. Served with French beans.
    Live yog and mangoes for pud.
    I really like the sound of "bricks". How do you make them?

    Tonight smoked cod baked in milk for my husband, lamb steak with mint jelly and gravy for me, potato dauphinoise, carrots and cabbage.

    • I fancy beans on toast this evening.

      I’d also like to know more about these bricks Nicks, I’ve got both eggs and corned beef.

      • Lunch was a disgrace: veggie burger in a roll with tomato sauce, two dry madalenas (supposedly madeleines but more like fairy cakes with no fruit) with strawberry jam to try to improve them. Would 'it was one of those mornings' do for an excuse?

        Supper: pork loin slices in a ras el hanout and crispy crumb coating, more sri racha and honey cabbage. Not sure if I'll get around to doing potatoes. There's home-made bread in the freezer and that might have to be my default.

        • I buy mine ready made and fill them with whatever I fancy.
          Traditionally you add something...in a circle , then crack an egg in the centre , then fold over the edges of the circle and fry on both sides.

          Here's one recipe...

          Might try it myself but it's ever so thin...bit like filo pastry.
          Supposed they are a bit like Arabic samosas?

          Tonight we're having creamy wild mushrooms and pasta.
          Bananas and yog for pud.

          • They sell Brik as street food in Tunisia & Morocco. Take a piece of pastry in one hand, crack an egg intp it with the other hand, scrunch it up and drop it in a vat of hot oil. Delicious!

            They also sell them filled with pigeon meat, currants and sugar as a sort of Mince pie.

                  • Fish biryani with lots of mixed veg.

                      • Pizza plus salad for lunch.
                        Supper: Soup and bread.

                        Rather a doughy day, but it's "lo que hay", as the Spanish say (literally "what there is").
