Smoothie #11

It’s been some time since I was in the smoothie world, details of which I may or may not bore everyone with at a later date but this morning sees me at home for work and feeling somewhat world weary. World weary and too lazy to cook. World weary and too bored for cereal. So […]

Happy Thoughts From Isolation

Life is weird at the moment, which I’m guessing as a human being you may have already worked out. Leaving the house is stressful. Working from the house is mind bendingly frustrating. I am eating and drinking entirely too much. I am also, oddly, able to direct myself to the silver linings of this disgusting […]

Here’s to a Flexi Twenty

I’m too old for new years resolutions, what a load of guff. I’m not, however, falsely confident enough to say I’m 100% happy remaining forever the exact same lump of middling to average human being that will shuffle off to bed some time in the first hours of the new year. I need to up […]

The Boomdorf Salad

Your traditional Waldorf is pretty simple- apple, celery, grapes and walnuts covered in mayonnaise and served on shredded lettuce. It’s been that way since it was first made for a charity ball in 1896 at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York and that’s what it is. Put chicken in it? Not a Waldorf. Pecans? Not a […]

I donned my wellies this morning for maybe the third time in 2019, but those other times were purely weeding and compost hefting so in […]

For Those About To Veganuary….

I salute you! I’m no vegan, but I do try to make more of my meals meat and dairy free than aren’t. It’s not because I particularly enjoy butterbeans. It’s actually for many reasons which I won’t bore you with now but suffice to say if I could get away with a bacon double cheeseburger […]
