Easy delicious soup

August 23, 2009

OK this was a hit tonight at fetoor and has to be the easiest.

Put a little oil in a pot and add a tablespoon of tomato paste.

Add a packet of Maggi chicken vermacelli soup and then water.

Sprinkle in some fresh coriander, pepper and a little tabasco (hot ) sauce…..


Rice Pudding

August 21, 2009
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 15 dates, pitted and chopped
  • Place the rice into a food processor or blender, and process until coarse, but not pureed. Transfer to a saucepan, and stir in the milk, sugar and dates. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until the dates are tender, about 20 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

    I am going to make that right now!

    How to escape punishment

    July 24, 2009

    Easy really, all you have to shout is ”I’m a celebrity, don’t put me in there!”

    At least for Steve Gerrard and Amy Winehouse, that seems to be the key……………in an astounding affront to football and music fans everywhere, and a finger up at our judicial system, both couldn’t-care-less celebrities, who have proven to us all how free they are with their fists, have been let off by some alzheimer-threatened judge…..

    Both have been ‘cleared of assault’…….now I have been a Liverpool fan all my life, but I think perhaps the ‘jury of his peers’  ( Liverpool FC captain ) may have been a little biased ( from Liverpool )…..don’t you think.

    And as for Amy, well perhaps she needs as many favours as she can get with a face and body like that……

    Out of the mouths of babes

    July 18, 2009

    Watching  a movie with my five year old and black rocks start falling from sky,

    ”What’s that mama?”

    ”That’s a meteorite.”

    ”Ah what mama? Me and you are right?”

    ” Yes, that’s it……….”

    Words of wisdom from a toddler

    July 15, 2009


    My son has come out with a couple of things that have set me off this week. The first was when we were bringing the shopping in from the car and we saw a rather huge spider skuttle off under my Japanese grass ,

    ”Mama that spider was soooo big, he was lunch!’ said half pint……

    Then in bed the other night, after bed time story, he reached over and pointed to the side of my face as I lay on his pillow. He touched the side of my eye and said, very concerned,

    ”This bit  here looks a little bit old……”.

    Ah lovely, pass the botox.

    Anybody can become angry, that is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time, and for the right purpose, and in the right way, that is not within everybody’s power, that is not easy.

    Breakfast, they say.

    July 10, 2009

        I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The difference between ‘involvement’ and ‘commitment’ is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was ‘involved’ – the pig was ‘committed’.”
