So lovely to be able to wander around the streets of Belgravia this afternoon. We were on our way to the restaurant at The Hari to shoot some of their menu dishes.

The sun's out but its not summer yet.

The presenters on the radio made a lot of the sunshine this morning. They evoked a warm and wonderful day that made getting out of bed easier, a success in the world of 'morning radio presenters' I would imagine. But waiting at the bus stop I was quickly reminded that this ain't no summers day, so gone are any thoughts of salads and I'm firmly back thinking, warm pasta comfort food.

Salsa hey! Salsaaaa!!

Published 20th February 2015

I love coming home on the bus with Alejandro he's always so, up. He woke up on Monday to discover that his roof had leaked and his bedroom was now a wet room. On Wednesday his car wouldn't start and he needed to get to Birmingham on business. Thursday he sprained his wrist helping his mother-in-law with her shopping and today his boss told him that he would have to cancel his planned holiday due to a new contract. So what is Alejandro going to do this weekend? He's going DANCING! He told me that before he goes dancing he always eats salsa. He quickly ran through his favourite recipe for me before jumping up at his stop. It sounded great but I needed to know what he recommended to go with it. He stopped at the doors and then shuffled and danced back to me, he bent slowly forward from the waist and with a straight spine, shoulders back and his chin up, he looked deep into my eyes and said "a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g......"

The chicken joke that left me headless!

Published 10th February 2015

I sat next to a guy on the bus today who told me a joke. He said, "Why did the Roman chicken cross the road? Because she was afraid someone would grab her!" He then laughed until he got off, which was thankfully only the next stop. I didn't really get it but I smiled to stay friendly. It wasn't until we had said our goodbyes and he'd got off, that a girl behind me lent forward and said " it's Caesar, he was meant to say Caesar, the Roman chicken was afraid that someone would Caesar" that I finally laughed.

Peanut, Man!

Published 22nd January 2015

I was waiting for the bus this afternoon when the guy next to me asked me if I wanted a peanut to fend off the cold. I can't remember the last time I had a peanut, on its own, straight out of the tin but I do know, that I've never eaten one to 'fend off the cold'. When I asked the guy what he meant he completely ignored me, he just looked the other way. I waited another twenty minutes for the bus and I was frozen solid by the time it arrived! When I got home I made these and I'm going to take them to work tomorrow with the hope that I can repay the favour to the peanut man, cos this, is how peanuts should be eaten.

Porridge with a thivel

Published 16th January 2015

 I sat next to a bloke on the bus last night who was holding a stick. When I asked him what it was for he told me it wasn’t a stick it was a thivel?! He said that he uses his stick, sorry thivel, to break down lumps in his oatmeal. This fascinating bloke went on to tell me that this was how things were done to make porridge before rolled oats came along. When he got to his stop he leant over and whispered ‘The thivel on the pottage pan, shall strick my hour to rise’. WTF!!

Eggnogg in a glass with a candle

I was waiting for the bus the other day and got chatting to an old dear about Christmas. She was telling me how she doesn't consider her Christmas has begun until she has drunk her first eggnog. Never having heard of it I did a bit of research and found out that not only does it date back to about the 14th century, probably originates in East Anglia but also over 13,000 people like it on facebook. So I decided to give it a go.....(click here to see the recipe.)
