It’s an old saying, but one that might be nearing the end of it’s lifespan. An Austrian supermarket is now offering pre-peeled bananas.
To save you clicking on the link (which you’re going to do anyway, because you won’t believe me when I explain it), they are taking a banana – which you’ll recall is . . . → Read More: Wednesday Rant: Make like a banana and split…
I am indebted to our resident Pheasant for inspiring this post with his mention of the musical “Grease” yesterday.
Whilst researching this, and getting distracted on Google and Wikipedia as I typically do, I noticed the following timeline:
In 1963, “Bird” was the word. Soon after, Colonel Harlan Sanders sells the rights to “Kentucky Fried . . . → Read More: FOF – What’s the good word?
There is a certain glorification of the past, a very vintage appreciation.
Whether it is the clothing of a former generation (which seem to come back around anyway), or a style of decor, or even the music, it seems that we idolise that which has gone before.
Last night, Al and I traipsed down to . . . → Read More: When will the vintage themes become irrelevant?
Biscuits or cookies are great for snacking. Perhaps a hand down of Australia’s British tea-swilling heritage.
But there are dramas when it comes to Biscuits. Perhaps we were corrupted at a young age by the gluttonous exploits of the Cookie Monster.
But there is something about an open biscuit packet. It calls to you. It . . . → Read More: The biscuit drama
I know we have discussed this before but I was thinking it might be time for another post about odd food combinations. My nephew and I were going on a picnic on the weekend and when we were talking about sandwich combos while shopping he suggested a Cheezel sandwich. He is a fussy eater at . . . → Read More: Childhood flavour fiesta
You really have to wonder what people did for a portable lunch before the sandwich was invented. According to that bastion of knowledge, Wikipedia, sandwiches have existed in one form or another for quite a long time but it was the Industrial Revolution which led to them becoming much more wide spread (spread, get it?). . . . → Read More: Make me a sammich!
I don’t know about you all, but I struggle with food. So many tempting delicacies out there.
My major weaknesses are chocolate and pasta, particularly lasagne. I am pretty fond of noodles also.
What is your particular culinary weakness? What offer can you not say no to?
What is an Affragato?
Besides “tasty”, the answer to this question has been plaguing me this weekend, so naturally I bring it forth unto the Splatters to debate and lay to rest.
For those not familiar with them, they are comprised of a scoop of ice-cream with a shot of espresso coffee poured over. Affragati . . . → Read More: Topics on Monday – Affragato
After my last serious (and seriously verbose) post, I thought it was time for something fun.
Inspiration for this piece came to me in (of all things) a loaf of bread. Now before you scratch your head & think “WTF?”, hear me out. For this wasn’t your average supermarket or bakery white slice – this, . . . → Read More: This post is 98% fat free.
As I write this post, I have some baked beans cooking. This is more of a tangent than a lead in, but here’s a pic of them.
Anyway, one of the ingredients is mustard, and since I had some whole grain mustard in the fridge I used that, intending to replace it at the . . . → Read More: Store brand vs Commercial
