“Posh.” Does that make you think of a Spice Girl? or the rich and famous? or taking a boat to India? My mother told me that the origin of the word was attributed to the best class of staterooms on passenger liners that sailed from England to India and back. To have your cabin in the shade, thus being cooler, for the whole trip, you wanted to be on the Port side going Out and on the Starboard side on the trip Home . A pretty story, but alas, untrue. The term has less to do with E.M. Forester and more to do with Conan Doyle. Remember the Persian slipper where Holmes kept his tobacco on the mantle? That type of slipper was possibly called a “papoosh” and it was considered to be ‘posh’ in Persia.
In honor of my mother’s spurious story, we will imagine that we are sailing to India for the first time. We depart favoring sturdy English meals, like ham and mushrooms for breakfast. But on the way home, the trunks are full of Indian silks and pajamas [!] and we are trying to figure out how to teach Cook to use curry and ketchup and other delicious condiments of India, as in our dinner of curried vegetables and turkey.

Though these are flavors of autumn, they can be enjoyed any time, especially on a Fast Day. One 2-oz egg 1/3 oz mushrooms, chopped ½ oz roast ham or 3% fat deli ham, chopped 1 Tbsp Gruyere cheese, grated ½ tsp ground sage ¼ tsp savory 1 small plum -OR- ½ cup raspberries Optional: 5-6 oz fruit smoothie or natural apple cider Optional: blackish coffee or tea or lemon in hot water
Set toaster oven at 350° F. Spritz some cooking spray into a ramekin. Grate the cheese. Chop the ham and mushrooms, and put them into the ramekin. Whisk together the cheese, egg, and seasonings, and pour that in too. Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on how well set you like your eggs. It will puff up and start to brown a bit. Prepare your optional beverages and portion the fruit. Off to a good start.
