Just a simple smoked Kania ham sarnie with a little garnish . . .



That looks ...colourful. :grin:

Ah, colour is so important in food. I know smell is the most important "eating sense" but food should stimulate all possible senses (though hearing is a difficult one, we usually have to settle for music or, my favourite, the hubbub of a popular eatery  :) !)  The above has the odour of the smoked ham, sweetness, heat plus soft and crisp textures

I agree that colour is important! Can you imagine what it would be like if you suddenly only saw black, white and shades of gray? I'd imagine it would be difficult to eat a slice of a gray tomato (I love tomato) as it would look like something going stale. Or gray ham.  :bleh:

One of my favourite salad things was doing chemistry on "red" cabbage. It is like litmus paper, treating it with acids and alkalis (lemon or lime juice, baking soda etc), some times on their own or acid-to-alkali and reverse, can give you blue, orange, a real red etc. Effects very per the actual cabbage. If you wash it after, the taste does not linger.

A bowl of multi-coloured cabbage gets people's interest!

There was once food scientist (read this in the Readers' Digest) who experimented with odd food colouring, IIRC blue was the least favourite, most of the others occur in nature. But, yeah, shades of grey are boring (so are the books!)

Frozen margarita pizza (not frozen though, obviously :P ). Almost burnt it in the oven...almost.

At least the frozen tomatoes didn't make the pizza soggy this time.

Some fish. Probably some chicken after and some salad at some point definitely.
But, uh...well there it is.

Just a snack to go with my vino, toasted olive bread with garlic butter, cheddar cheese etc.

(I seem to have a thing about olives and sweet chillis these days.)

I'm waiting for someone to do some GM between chillis and tomatoes to produce a hot tomato!  :grin:

Sounds delicious Dave.


I blended a drink yesterday that came out surprisingly well. Usually I have a lot if sugar in my drinks or sugar substitute. This drink was comprised of tap water, spinich, nuts, seeds, cucumber, and squeezed lemon (because I can't blend a lemon and still have it taste good).

And at first taste I was amazed. It wasn't as sugary as my other drinks but all those things put together really added a nice crisp cool flavor. It was almost like drinking bottled water but a little more flavorful.

The only con is that it looks terrible, especially when it settles.
But, uh...well there it is.

Had this yesterday. Didn't taste bad but the mango flavored candy was too much sugar.

But, uh...well there it is.
