Vegetarian for nearly 30 years...but this brings back very, very happy memories from childhood mmmmm.....so tasty :drool::drool::drool:
I too have been veggie for decades (since the late '70s) but I don't mind cooking meat for Techy because, you have just this minute inadvertently revealed to me, I always feed some to the pets! :chuckle:

Back from a nice long bike ride in the sun. :cool:

Enjoyed olive bread (that's bread with olives in) and parsnip and pesto soup.

That's the traditional parsnip and pesto soup recipe that I invented yesterday.

Yes, please to all!

If I lived near you and didn't take up the long-distance rides, I'm sure I'd get fat.

Mrs Yith often brings home these super-soft and doughy white rolls stuffed with olives: dipped in oil with balsamic vinegar, I'll devour them by the bagful.

They sound delicious! :cool:

I first heard of mochi a couple of years ago in a news article about Japanese people choking on them.

Thought 'I'd like to try them!' and nearly right away was given some by a Japanese customer. :D
No choking ensued.

I eat ddeok, the Korean versions reasonably often. My mother-in-law very often makes or buys the ones made with green-tea in the mix and sesame seeds and honey in the middle.

Some of the department stores here have Japanese rice-cake counters, and the cakes themselves and the display are works of art.

I'd like to make some but the ingredients sound like summat from Mars!

Sent off for some mochi. They arrived today.

Showed Techy and explained the interesting aspect of the choke-risk.

He was rather :sherlock:

Mochi page on Amazon

They were only small ones and we chewed them very thoroughly. :chuckle:
I bought my partner and her daughter a good few boxes of fresh chocolate moshi at the weekend as a treat :)


Big choccie smiles on 'em after they'd gorged themselves.

A sushi restaurant in Norwich. They're currently doing takeaway.
Sadly that's a bit of a reach for us! :(
I can always throw them if you give me your general direction luv.

Today's choccie from our traditional buy-an-advent-calendar-in-the-sales-and-use-it-for-Easter.

This years is a Lindt one and I recommend it!

Although the wee stag I've just eaten is OBVIOUSLY a bunny on stilts!

This is a scaled up version and it's still a bunny on stilts.

Wee granddaughter is staying with other grampa at the seaside for first week of Easter holidays, so have a free weekend!

Starting off with roasted chicken thighs in a generous herbal coating, with gherkins and chipotle sauce, accompanied by an artesan digestive lubricant. :badge:
