The deadliest, jelliest site ever. Brought to you by Niamh Shaw

Last night, I prepared gnocchi with burnt sage butter; roast beetroot, orange and spinach salad; veal chops; and apple pie.

Husband: This – what d’you call it again?

Me: Gnocchi.

Husband: Tastes a bit . . . stodgy. Bit like potato flavoured raw pastry.

Me: No, it doesn’t. It is light, fluffy and delicious, according to the recipe.

Husband: Is it a bit bland?

Me: NO!

Husband: <silence>

Me: <silence>

Husband: <more silence>

Me: Ok look, if you’re not going to eat your crispy sage, can I have it?

Husband: Oh, you’re supposed to EAT that?

Me: YES!

Husband: Ah. Yeah, that tastes better.

Me: GAH!

    As you can tell, what came to my mind was largely incoherent 😀

    You’re kidding me – right?

    You eat the pretty stuff that decorates the plate?

    Does that include parsley – cuz that kinda sucks 🙂

    Greetings from the Cook Islands Naimh and Andrew.

    back this weekend – we could do flax and I could try the condomints 😉

    Actually, I’ve been meaning to talk to you about that . . . parsley makes your breath smell nice, MarkJ. Think about it.

    Welcome back in advance! And we’re definitely on for Flax, but remind me closer the time will you? Cos otherwise there’s a fair chance we won’t turn up and may get a reputation for being flaky.

    Parsley it is then.

    Sorry for any stress caused 🙂

    I was only kidding MarkJ; your breath is fragrantly aromatic with or without parsley.


  7. That would be the aromatic rice?

    Back in NZ now – expect to hear the latest at Flax on Sunday at 10 if that suits you guys?
