We have just demolished an eat-by-today carrot and walnut cake.

I think the last time either of us had cake was Mr Frideswide's birthday in February.
Every week when i go to my folks for lunch/dinner mum gives me a home made cake, shes a bakeoholic, she does make exceedingly better cakes than mr kipling :)

Made myself a cheese and onion omelette. Unfortunately I forgot to put the cheese in so had to try grating it on top as the eggs fried. I can confirm this is not a good way to make a cheese and onion omelette.

You could have grated it on top and grilled it.

An ex used to make omelettes with just the egg yolks and whip up the whites and spread them on top, then grill the lot so it was like a savoury meringue. Delicious.

Tell you what were nice, those Spanish omelettes from Yan's with the chips and thick gravy. Yum.

I could have grilled it, but I'm not that experienced a chef! Also, my toast was ready.

Was i imagining it or did they used to be little chips of potato like matchsticks rather than the puffy things they are now?

The usual American labels are "shoestring potato" or "potato sticks."

Chipsticks! The salt and vinegar flavour could take the roof off your mouth in seconds.
You could arrange about 10 of them to protrude from under your top lip pointing downwards like a row of monstrous teeth.
Took a while but generally considered a good effect.

Made a smoothie for tea. It was half a litre of soya milk, one pack of fresh blackberries and two soggy bananas.

Drink the lot right away, delicious. Wish I'd taken a photo though as it was really deep purple colour. Looked surreal.

I have a burrito. I have never eaten a burrito before. It's a frozen one, from the supermarket. I'm going to try it next week. Hope it's not too spicy. Wish me luck.

Tonight I'm cooking Tuscan belly pork strips, steamed vegetables, and rice.

This evening I'm departing from the exotic. Though I'm doing spicy potato wedges, I'm making a steak and mushroom pie with an ale (Wold Top) gravy, along with cabbage and peas.

As an aside ...

Long ago, decades I mean, I was boiling potatoes and shoved white cabbage into the same water to cook. The two veg came out tasting horribly. My GF at the time said that this happened thanks to some kinda chemistry between the two. I've never done it since.
But I've started wondering ...
Is there some sound reason why you can't boil potatoes and cabbage in the same water, at the same time? Does it actually change the chemistry and make 'em taste yuk, or was it just that one time?
