Ham and Egg Sandwich...

This is a really simple sandwich, and of course it's gonna taste as good as it sounds... I mean it's ham and egg and what's not to love there. Makes a nice Sunday brunch with a glass of iced tea.
So getting started, saute some sliced onions... till they get that brownish caramelized tint.

Then heat the ham slices, till they give off a nice smell...
Here the onions are nicely browned and supple...
Chop up the ham and add it to this.
Now let's start layering the bread. I have used wheat bread here and no, I have no buttered it, you can if you want to though. And the onion and ham mix onto the bread.
Then top it with some chopped capsicum and sliced eggs.
Sprinkle a little salt and pepper...
Scrape some cheddar cheese over this. I had cheese slices at home so I chopped that up and added it here above the egg and placed it in the small toaster oven. You could place it in the microwave too for a few minutes until the cheese melts.
The cheese has melted, I used only half a slice for each sandwich... place another slice on top and cut them diagonally.

And that's it , a scrumptious breakfast is ready.... great way to start the day.

Sounds good! I love fried egg sandwiches with ham, but I bet hard-boiled eggs are great too!

wow...my mouth is watering here....This is real a great breakfast..but where do you find ham over here???
What a wonderful breakfast or even lunch in m opinion. You brought me back to my childhood with this one. Haven't had a ham and egg salad since I stayed at my grandmother's house on the weekends and she would always make us one for breakfast~!

That is one delicious looking sandwich! Nothing better than ham and onions. :)
Do I have to eat it for breakfast? It sounds like a great lunch to me! (But I'd totally eat it for breakfast, too!)

this looks soooo good! where do you get your ham from? I'll have to try this with an omelette (instead of boiled egg) and mustard sauce!

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
