got a banana?

Spotted on Lakeland‘s site today, is a banana transporter.

banana storage
Transport your mid-morning snack to work or school
without it looking as if it’s gone five rounds in a boxing ring!

Why can’t you just transport it *in its skin*? And what if your banana is not the shape of this contraption.

clearing the freezer

August 8th, 2006 | Comments Off on clearing the freezer | Posted in general

We collected half a salt marsh lamb on Sunday, from www.thoroughlywildmeat.co.uk. We are collecting a quarter of a cow on Saturday, from www.dexterbeef.co.uk.

This has caused some anxieties re freezer space, and thus we are eating a sort of lucky dip to try and make way for all this meat.

This morning, I found half of a small rye loaf (which Pete is going to eat for lunch), and a tub of prawn stock. So tonight will be prawn, chilli and ginger risotto, followed by a blackberry and apple crumble (blackberries from the brambles at the bottom of the garden). I’m rather looking forward to it!

Apologies for the lack of updates – v busy at the moment.
