Eggs any way, anytime

Emma Reporter from Stuff Cooks

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

Eventually “Eggs & Anything” infiltrated dinner and our standards dropped even lower: the skillet was dumped on the table along with a pile of forks, a few side plates - maybe, a tea towel as a napkin for the 8-year-old with the large lockdown appetite and away we went.

Lazy egg suppers have hung around in Alert Level 2 - minus the dinner dregs and skillet table service, and with the addition of an actual recipe: Turkish eggs, spicy red shakshuka and spiced bread egg in a hole.

Eggs, dukkah and garlic fried spinach is another favourite combo in our house. What's your favourite?

Zero rates plan scrapped as Christchurch council struggles to contain coronavirus fallout

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Residents in Christchurch face a rates increase of between 3.5 and 5.5 per cent next year to plug a $90 million hole in the city council’s purse left largely by the coronavirus pandemic.

Hopes for a much-vaunted lowering of the increase to zero have been dashed, with staff warning the policy would cause “unprecedented” redundancies, jeopardise projects and flout direct advice from the Government.

The authority also faces borrowing more than $100m over the next two years to pay for its coronavirus response and make up for an expected $61.8m in lost dividends from the trading companies it owns.
