It’s that time of week again – another five from Mama M
What’s the one thing you buy every time you walk into the store?
Milk…hard to cook or bake without it and tea and coffee sans milk ain’t worth getting out of bed for – if we end up with a surplus, it can always go in the freezer for revitalising later for baking.
Dog roll…the walking carpets get fed Purina but get bored with the constant dry food and like to have something juicy/tasty to go with; whatever dog roll is on special is what gets grabbed but often they luxuriate in left-overs instead… breakfasts this morning was two cups of Purina each with a couple of big globs of mixed apple crumble, last night’s curry and rice, and porridge and yoghurt from our breakfast this morning…
Butter and marg…as for milk, butter is a bit of a must for a lot of baking plus toast/bread without some sort of spread is dry and yukky…
If you had a day all to yourself how would you spend it?
I would really like to have a decent crack at the challenge of a Blitzbau …I have been following most of them this time around and it looks like a lot of fun…just need to have a day to dedicate to one during the blitz season…
Are you a speed limit driver? If not, over or under?
We have a 10kmh ‘tolerance’ here but I rarely go over that unless it’s a brief spurt when passing…far easier and cheaper these days to just add in some extra time if I really need to be somewhere on time…the twins on the other hand, are speed maniacs – can’t think where they get this from…?
What’s your favorite dessert to make, homemade or from a mix??
That’s an easy one…our self-saucing butterscotch pudding…it’s yummmmeeeee!! Oh, did you think I was going to share the special recipe…? Nope not even a pic less lest some culinary schemer deduce the secret ingredients…
Would you rather have a spider or a mouse scurry across your face (no copping out and saying “neither!!”)?
Probably a mouse as they tend to be in transit and are less likely to take up residence or want to contest ownership…not actually that fussed as spiders here (apart from whitetails) are not really much to worry about and, now that we slashed back all the scrub from around the house and installed the ring of death of bait stations, we don’t have much of a rodent problem…when we first moved here, the rats used to queue up on the deck by the front door to hoover down any leftovers the dogs might have left…
Butter scotch pudding…. Yes please!
