Looks like an old English breakfast starting. Old cheddar melted on the top rack of the bbq on pumpernickel, a word I can’t say without picturing Black Adder.

Vegan sausage. I don’t know what it is. Maybe like meat versions, it’s better not to ask.

Some thyme, mustards, ketchup,…

And a bit of pearfection for dessert.

And have I mentioned lately that I hate Flickr buggering around with defaults. Not I have to copy, paste and then do it again to get rid of the data header advertizing Flickr on each photo like a garish watermark. Which serves who? Company or user?

Go and Sin Carne Some More

Posted on Monday 13 July 2015

watermelon juice
After ogling the stands in NYC, I came home and made my own watermelon juice. Immersion blender, a little bit of sugar, chill.

Improv from what-have-we-got. Smiles. McCain empire isn’t so evil, right? Frozen spinach mixed with some cumin, paprika, nayonnaise, green onion. Improv 4-portion chili sin carne with tomato sauce (the good real reduction stuff from Little Italy, no spice, just flavour), kidney beans, 2 onions, half a green pepper, 2 sweet potatoes, a few stems of celery, a teaspoon or so of cocoa, 3 cloves of garlic, a little drizzle of olive oil.

Vanilla cone which he helped with.

A lot of hospital food coming potentially as my mom will be there for up to 3 weeks with heart issues. Not sure the impact that will have on blogging.
