Miss Yith goes to children's cooking classes and loves them.

Today I came home and was presented with a chocolate cookie, banana and marshmallow pizza. I'm not talking about just a pizza base with those things tossed on top, but a proper thin-pan pizza from homemade pastry with everything gooey and warm on top. She clearly had help every step of the way, but I was very impressed.

It was frankly brilliant as a dessert!

Last night I picked up several packs of knock-down sliced mango on way back from work. First thing I did at home was make a big tasty smoothie. I love mangos but they're troublesome to prepare so this is a big treat.

Today it'll be more mango smoothies until they're all gone.

You can use mango to make a great curry sauce. Fry onion and a little garlic, add the curry spices of your choice, some stock, mango, simmer until all is soft, then blitz smooth.

Cost-reduced olive bread, toasted and buttered. Fresh-brewed black coffee.

Nothing at the moment.
But waiting for a minestrone 'brick' to defrost. It could take a while.

It may cost more in energy to defrost than it would to have made a new batch.

Put it in a plastic bag, put the bag in your trouser pocket and walk briskly about the house for half an hour.

All defrosted, no environmental impact. Simples.

If you wish to wander around with a block of ice that has been cooled to -18C in your pocket, then the best of luck to you. And may God have mercy on your goolies.

I settled for placing the frozen minestrone brick in a little water and leaving it on a very low heat until it thawed out. Took about 15 minutes.

Tasted very nice.

Deep-fried chicken wings, pickled carrots and Chinese cucumber salad, paired with a Belgian christmas beer because nothing matters. Delicious.

I read that as pickled parrots. I know Hong Kong has a culinary reputation, but thought that was a step too far...

I would wager that you are amongst the 15% or so of asparagus consumers who don't get stinky wee from it.
I like asparagus but the stinky wee after is massively off-putting.
You have lost your wager Sir/Madam, stinky wee is no impediment to my enjoyment of asparagus.

Guess the flavours.

Apricot on the right, a bit meh, if I'm honest. But on the left is fish sauce flavoured ice cream. I'll repeat that: fish sauce flavoured ice cream. Some proper next level salted caramel action, I can tell you. Not just a comedy flavour. I fair took the pattern off the bowl.
