It’s time for another Bits and Bobs Mish Mash Confuzzled Post of Randomness! March’s edition runs the gamut from food to food and more food and then something that isn’t food. Get excited.
Months before Vien sent me the Go Natural winnings and her delicious homemade pumpkin butter, we found ourselves chatting via email about our mutual obsession with exploring grocery stores whilst travelling. Little did I know that Vien was ever-so-generously putting together a care package for me from her travels in Asia. Vien, you’re amazing. The first item to leap out at me from the package was the above Honey Stars cereal, which I snacked on every night until it was all gone.
The Honey Stars (“…with rockets!”) were tasty on their own, but even more so when dotted atop a spoon generously heaped with Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter.
Excuse me while I go to my happy place.
Also in Vien’s package were two little rolls of confectionary, one coconut-flavoured and one durian-flavoured. So far, I’ve only tried the coconut one, and it reminded me pleasantly of the coconut and palm sugar sticky rice desserts found at Thai restaurants. (The non-karma kind).
A long time ago (as in, way before March. Yes, this post’s title is a filthy lie) my family and I went to Mecca Bah and enjoyed many mezze plates, including the above sweet potato falafel with tahini sauce, chickpea battered mussels with almond skordalia, beetroot and yoghurt salad, and Tunisian carrot salad. I may or may not have started crying during this meal for reasons unrelated to the food, but my brother made everything better by picking me up and swinging me around in circles in the carpark afterwards.
Sometimes you simply need to let the world spin around you before you can stand up straight again.
Mmmmm pancakes. Enjoyed at Farmers Daughter in honour of E.Moonbeams’ birthday. It is good that E.Moonbeams has birthdays, because birthdays mean she was born and I am very glad she was born and is now in my life.
And now, I present to you advice that, frankly speaking, I’m not sure how you’ve managed to live without. I found this wisdom in a book that I now own (and may have to keep educating you with in future). Get ready to thank me in three… two… one…
Question Time: What would be your advice for how to kiss people with different sizes of mouths? I jest, I jest. What’s your favourite sugary cereal?
