...nice mushrooms, too. Tried a Mars Bar™ milkshake, which was not noticeably different to a Turkish Delight™ except the lumps were harder (& I’m such a softie that I’ll choose TD next time). Hmmm. May be I should help them to invent a Cheery Ripe™ version? (-:
I’ve had a stab at “instant” pizzas (Margarita or Cheese-n-Garlic plus ingredients like eggplant, dried tomato, olives etc) then nuked, & discovered that grilled capsicum (“oven toasted red peppers” according to IGA) adds a nice burst of flavour.
In other random news (’coz you need it :-) I discovered that living with a baby is an educational experience. Met a Mum trying to calm her whining 8wo, the quality of whine hinted at internal pain to me so I suggested she burp him. She reluctantly tried, got a burp, & sir immediately calmed down. A couple of minutes later, a similar whine started, so I met her eyes, raised my eyebrows, she nodded, sighed, said “Yeah, burp him” & stood up to walk around with sir. The end result (right down at the other end of the path) was a humongous burp & no more crying. Such simple wisdom, yet (pardon the abuse of English) so satisfying.
In yet other random news (’coz... never mind) I took a handful of photos to show in this laptop’s screen & draw from, since I seem to run out of time waiting for trains/buses/whatever whilst I’m drawing, otherwise — & it lets me snapshot moving or transient objects so I can draw them stationary (Latin, statiõnãrus).
