Throwback Thursday – Food Glorious Food

Sadly I do seem to have run out of Gratuitous videos of the Hounds from Hell for real. And things around here are rather routine these days with nothing of great excitement taking place. So when in doubt, as so many of us have recently, I turn to the comfort of food.

With the advent of summer – I’ve been assured we will get something resembling summer at some point – it’s time for a bit lighter fare. The less time spent in the kitchen the better so I thought I’d share a recipe from this date (July 9) in 2009.

Some how or other I never got around to posting this – and given the Saint’s name day how could I have forgotten. Anyway better late et al.

I think of my English relatives where etiquette is everything – you can only use a knife and fork (always together – never separately particularly the knife – all sorts of vision pop into my head in connection with the knife solo)

    With that in mind, I think it is time to round up your old film crew to prepare new materials. Tracking down your old gaffer or key grip without the assistance of Facebook might be tricky, but so long as you can round up the canine movie stars and that delicious voiceover artist you should be golden.

  3. Yours is the third blog entry I’ve read this evening mentioning real proper tomatoes and I am ready to weep. I miss them so.
