Wild Rover Food Appreciation Post

Wild Rover Food Appreciation Post

So, last weekend saw the annual festival frolics known as Doune the Rabbit Hole. We pitched up Tent City (now with two gazebos), drank all the drinks, climbed a tree, learned circus skills and sang songs round a campfire. Oh, and saw a few bands, too. In previous years, the post following Doune has been somewhat unimaginatively titled ‘Doune the Rabbit Hole‘ – but frankly, all I wanted to eat…

Sainsbury’s Summer Fruit Punch

Sainsbury’s Summer Fruit Punch

This post was made possible by Sainsbury’s, who sent me a bottle of their Summer Fruit Punch to try. The opinions in the post are, as ever, mine, and the review is honest.

If you’re a fellow dweller in the UK, you’ll know that our weather is changeable, to speak charitably and say the least. In fact, even if you live in sunnier climes, you probably know about our weather because we do talk…

He did it. He actually managed to describe how it feels to live with depression and suicidal tendencies.

I bought my friend an elephant for their room.

They said “Thank you.”

I said “Don’t mention it.”

Is there a joke here that 15 thousand people get but I don’t?

Welcome to Night Vale Cake

Welcome to Night Vale Cake #wtnv @NightValeRadio

Act natural. Act like all of nature. Act like the entire cycle of life and death and change and rebirth.

Welcome to Night Vale.

If you don’t know about Night Vale (a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep), that is OK. You can educate yourself at Commonplace Books. There’s a lot to catch up on.

Summer is happening

Tomato Powder

This isn’t the first time I’ve reduced an unwitting fruit or vegetable to powder. I have form. As long as I’m on the loose, no chili is safe – and now, no tomato, either.

I have experimented with oven dried tomatoesbefore – like sun dried, only you can make them in countries where you don’t get much sun. This time, I went a step further and completely dried out some cherry tomatoes, before…

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open. 

The absolute best part of this video is how incredibly supportive the audience and even the commentators are like EVERYONE is rooting for her, no one is looking down on her or doubting that she can finish it just because she’s a woman or because she’s built so small. Everyone is SO happy to see her soar through this and that is absolutely brilliant.

Couldn’t agree more with the last comment. It’s truly glorious.

Spring Chicken Meatballs

This is a meal for when your heart says ‘summer!’ and the weather says ‘no. spring, at best’.

My camera packed in when I was making this. I’m hoping it’s a ‘charge the batteries’ situation rather than a ‘you dropped me too many times’ situation. As a result, the few photos in this post were taken on my phone – not the best, but then again not the worst since we have plenty of lovely daylight…
