Remember that Rudyard Kipling poem that ends with: "You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!"? My dad liked the classics - Charles Dickens, Shakespeare et al - and this quote, which he often spouted to us kids. Dunno why; I guess he just liked it. Not sure why my brain threw this quote up at me, in the middle of the night! Maybe because I can see that other bloggers are continuing on, but I'm finding it tough to see the value at the moment.
I don't want to let regular IMKers down, so I have put up a post for this month. I think we can let our hair down a bit this month, and just go for it. Tell us what you're making, growing, baking, doing - not just in your kitchen, but anywhere in your house, in these difficult times. Not sure when I'll post again; it could even be next week depending on how I feel, but let's see how it goes from here. All the best, everyone! And see you on the other side...
In My Kitchen (and elsewhere in the house):
|me at my sartorial best:-)|
Well, here I am in the bathroom, trying to cut my own hair! This is halfway through...Let me tell you, it ain't easy holding up the scissors, and my hair, and the phone - tee hee :-)
|Mr P. having a neighbourly drink in our driveway|
Last night (Sunday) we joined in on a local community event - drinks in the driveway. We waved to our neighbours across the road, and held up our glasses to each other. Very convivial. I think even this is a no-go from now on, as you can only have outside gatherings of two!
|chocolate self-saucing pudding|
Is everyone else madly cooking and baking, and eating lots of cake and chocolate? Yep, me too. This is made with black cocoa powder, so definitely not burnt, as my young friend Johnny B. gently chided me.
|re-reading this one after 20 years!|
Trying to re-read this fishy one, after twenty years. It was good then, and it's good now, but my brain is on a stop-work shift, so I'm finding any reading a bit difficult:-(
|success in the elusive loo paper hunt|
Mr P. went out hunter/gathering and found that elusive creature known as toilet paper. What a caveman he would have made!
|another book of food essays|
I love reading about food, as much as making it. Here we have some food essays about eating solo. Not that I am; I mean you can't get rid of Mr P. that easily. And yes, another (small) wooden spoon; is it olive wood, or is it mango wood? Mango, I'm thinking.
Okay, that's it for now. Join in, all my lovelies. Can't wait to see what you've been up to during the virus crisis. You know what to do - add your link, OR email me with the details so I can add it for you.
