The threat of an avalanche is still here.....overhanging snow on garden room roof to unsuspecting heads of Min, Junior or the dog. We have lots of icicles, like most people I suppose. Some rather large. This has impressed Junior...so much so that she's grabbed a rather large one for closer inspection. Gathered from the garden room roof. It was in the 'wrong' place....and would have caused a lot of swearing had it snapped and landed on me!!
So, rather large icicle has been rehomed by Junior and now lives in the freezer:o)) Amazing how some things fascinate people:o)
We've been talking about the snow and cold and how it's come about. So, totally unplanned, we ended up looking at an atlas, at all the continents. We did the capital city thing, then got on to different climates , el Nino and Nina, Tundra, earthquake and volcano hotspots, rings of fire, Ancient Rome, the metric system, tectonics, Native North Americans, totem poles, coats of arms, tartan, Scottish clans and loads more...this all started off while I was in the bath, warming up the old rickety joints and J asking about the snow....and off we went:o)) This off the cuff stuff just happens, so the stupid Badman & Balls crap of putting in a year long plan would not work for us timetable-hating autonomouses!! Gah!!!
She hates history...'that past stuff' as she refers to it....but I still managed to get Ancient Rome and a bit of 'What the Romans did for us' in without her really noticing. lol
Anyway, today I'm going to try and pootle on with my '101 WAYS TO COOK/USE SPUDS'!
So far, I've got the usual, boil, mash, chip, roast, jacket, dauphinoise, scallops, gnocchi, samosas, soup, pirogy, vodka!!, potato salad, stamping, rosti, croquettes, wedges, curry. Don't think I can include 'sticking one up a certain annoying person's exhaust' Saw this on a film years ago. Might have been an Eddie Murphy or action/comedy movie. Think they used a banana, though. You Americans!!! Fancy putting such an idea in my head!! :o) lol
