Hi Guys!

How is your weekend going? Has it been busy or have you had a quiet lazy weekend? We were hoping for a quiet weekend but no such luck yet again.

We went to the home show yesterday, that was nuts! We went to a few bridal expos last year and I thought they were full on but this home show was absolutely massive! There was absolustely everything you could dream of having in your home and then more. It was really great though, we got to look at the ceasarstone bench tops we are having, we also looked at screens for our doors we want to get something like crimsafe as our cat likes to climb screen doors so we want something she wont damage, and we got to look at lightning.

Question, how do you even choose pendant lights??? There are so many to choose from and so many this we like.

If you have had a crazy saturday or are looking for something a little more decadant for you sunday brunch, i’ve got you covered with these pulled pork and poached egg muffins.

The pork can be made in advance or if you have a slow cooker with a timer you can put it on saturday night and wake up to perfect pulled pork sunday morning for your breakfast 🙂

These come together quickly once the pork is ready, it’s as simple as bringing some water to a rolling simmer and dropping in your eggs to poach, toasting off some muffins and slicing an avocado. If you want some extra freshness rocket or baby spinach would be great with these.

Don’t be intimadated by poaching eggs, i never used to make them because the first couple of attempts I had at poaching eggs were failures. But I kept at it and now I understand what I was doing wrong. Before you drop the eggs in make sure the water is simmering rapidly, you basically want it to be almost boiling because as soon as you add the egg the temperature of the water drops rapidly, and the heat of the water will keep your egg together and start setting it.

This recipe will leave you with plenty of leftover pulled pork, you can portion it up and freeze it will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer, and you can use the leftovers for fried rice, nachos, pizza, pasta or burgers just to name a few.

This breakfast is easy enough for you to pull together in under half an hour (once the prok is cooked) but truly delicious. I hope you try it, please remeber to tag your photos with #rachaelsfoodielife so i can see them
