Were you ever told that? It usually happened when I sulkily pushed my cabbage round the plate in an effort to avoid eating it! When I had children of my own, I took the opposite approach- making faces in the mashed potato with peas and ketchup, or cutting veg into silly shapes. Eating – like education – should not just be of benefit, but also be enjoyable! In the past week I have encountered some foodstuffs which have made me smile.
We had ‘cauliflower rice’ on Sunday. I picked this idea up from the Sainsburys magazine. Useful if you want to eat less carbs.
Place some cauliflower in a food processor and process until the florets are the size of grains of rice. Put in a jug or bowl, add 10ml of water [no more, it will go mushy] and microwave for 2 minutes.
I need to work more on seasonings [Bob thinks more black pepper, or perhaps smoked paprika] but it was good nonetheless It does look remarkably like rice, and it had sufficient ‘bite’ to it.
Also on Sunday, a lovely picture from my SIL, Denise, which she knew would amuse me – free range noodles - Who knew?
These noodles are probably healthier than that farmed spaghetti, which Richard Dimbleby filmed being harvested back in the 1950s!
Chris Evans was talking on Friday about eating haggis, as people anticipated Burns’ Night. Here is a picture of a wild haggis for you.
The best way to catch one, apparently, is to lie very quietly on a grouse moor, until one approaches, then make a noise like a sporran!
