What’s your favorite childhood snack that you still eat as an adult?
Probably pikelets loaded with strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream…I will post some pictures next time we make some with the girls…and then, while looking up the URL for HFG, I saw it had a recipe for cinnamon and banana pikelets so for you foreigners and colonials and rebels who aren’t quite sure what a pikelet actually is, have a look, have a go and enjoy…it is a summery one too for those sweltering in the Northern hemisphere heat…
What food will you not eat the low fat version of?
Can’t think of any really…we normally opt for the healthier version where there is a choice…SWMBO won’t touch the ‘diet’ versions of Sodastream syrup whereas I don’t really care…I guess milk maybe where we tend to avoid the full cream dark blue top stuff but won’t go as far as the green top trim milk because it tastes like white water.
What’s your favorite way to cool off during the summer?
Sitting in the pool with a cool drink and a good book, possibly an Audible version as the hard copy ones get a bit grumpy around the water.
What’s your favorite summer read?
Don’t really have seasonal reads…sometimes we don’t even have clearly discernible seasons! I’m more likely to experiment with food in summer so possibly my summer reads are more culinary in nature, Healthy Food Guides etc…
What are you doing to stay cool in this awful heat?
Hmmm…not really a problem here at the moment…just pulled up the blinds in the study and can see that we have had a bit of a frost but no as extreme as I expected last night…clear blue skies as the sun come up over Mt Ruapehu so it will be sunny today, warm INSIDE, and a few degrees above zero outside
