Quick Breakie @ Sette Bello, CBD

Sometimes you can come across a gem by accident.

Two weeks ago, I had training for lawyer skills such as client interviews, letter writing, negotiating and advocacy.  We were also fed us very, very well by the training institute.  This had both pluses and minuses.  Plus – lunch was provided, saving some money lol.  Minus – I’m still trying to get rid of the food baby that developed that week :P.

Plus – we were located on Little Bourke St.  Minus – the day that I intended to go early to grab a bite beforehand, it was raining cats and dogs!

I found a bit of shelter at a café I had spied the day before and decided to make it my choice for breakfast.  The thing that attracted me was the Toby’s Estate name that I saw outside:

But before anyone gets too excited, the infamous Toby’s Estate from Sydney has not opened up a branch in Melbourne – however, their coffee beans has definitely made it over to Settebello, a modern little café on the corner of Hardware Lane and Little Bourke St. Continue reading “Quick Breakie @ Sette Bello, CBD”

Green Eggs and Ham: Reinvented

I was feeling a bit under the weather this past weekend due to lack of sleep and the cold weather so my mum being my mum put together a little something she picked up from her work colleagues that would make any egg-crazy girl happy… and she let me take photos too :).

Green Eggs and Ham: Reinvented

I googled Green Eggs and Ham and most have spinach or pesto but nothing with avocado hence ‘reinvented’…


  • 9 eggs
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • mayonnaise (as much you want really)
  • salt and pepper
  • toasted bread
  • shaved honey leg ham


  1. Boil the eggs til hard-boiled.  Let them cool, run under cold water to loosen the egg-shell from the egg.
  2. Mash the eggs in a large bowl.
  3. Mix in the mayonnaise.
  4. Cut avocados up and mash in with egg mixture.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Spread generously over toasted bread.  Top with ham and munch!
Step 2
Step 4
Voila! There was another larger container as well...
Green eggs...
... and ham!

Not the greatest looking dish but it sure was yummy!  Loved the creamy mixture and so simple too!  Perfect to eat while revisiting the old Dr. Suess classic ;).

Hope you are enjoying the week so far and staying warm!

Q: What’s a simple and yummy dish that you’ve made lately?
