Hi Monday-ers! Happy start to the week! Due to unavoidable and unexpected busyness and business here, my post is a short and sweet one this week. (and no, absolutely nothing to do with not blogging!) But I guess that's appropriate, because what I have to offer you is a biscuit:
Or two, as you can see, because one wasn't enough. Together they are my "new thing" for the weekend, the thing I tried for the first time. As I stood in the queue in Marks & Spencer behind the lady with the two trolleyloads of food, Friday morning, I had plenty of time to look around me. My eyes fell on these: Mexican Chipotle Chilli and Ecuadorian Dark Chocolate Cookies.
If I don't find anything else to try all weekend, I though, at least I'll have these. So I bought them and I brought them home and everyone said What? Really? But they ate them anyway. And here's the thing: they don't really taste of chipotle chilli at all. Or so my source tells me: the one person in the house who really enjoys Mexican food says they have no kick at all. But I liked the dark chocolate, and as we munched we talked and decided that, if we couldn't come up with anything new some other week, we'd cook a mole, a sauce with chillies and chocolate, because we haven't before. And so one new thing, small as it might be, will lead to another.
Which reminds me, I enjoyed reading all the guesses about my weight after last week's post The Tiny Ones . There were plenty of guesses around the 5lb mark; but you needed to go lower than that. I was 4lb 3oz and it was a month before I made it home. Didn't take long, though, before my Dad was saying I must have hollow legs because he didn't know where else I was putting all the food. Which is where we came in, I think. Have a good week, folks, and give a special Monday wave to everyone who posted last week.
