Culinary worries, and a satisfying resolution. [Jan. 13th, 2010|07:19 pm]
Douglas Spencer
I was looking at my dinner tonight, big soup with five different vegetables and a half-dozen scallops (which I wouldn't have been able to serve while Julia was here), and I realised to my horror that there were no carbohydrates in it -- no noodles or anything like that. Oh no! What about the fuel my body needs to keep itself warm?

And then I remembered that I had a dozen hot-cross buns (half-dozens on BOGOF at Sainsbury's), so the imminent disaster has been rewarded.

Mmmmm, hot cross buns. And lots of butter.

Surely you have a more appropriate icon for hot buns ;@)

Are those yours? They look very shaved if they are ;-)

It's amazing what a little crop can do.

Situation: Six HCBs for 50p in the local Co-op.
Problem: They are a strange, suspicious, low-fat version.
Solution: More butter! :)

I noticed they were out in Morrisons the other day, along with the creme eggs. We just finished the Christmas cured salmon, on crumpets.

They were in our local Tesco rather before Christmas, which I did think was a bit unseasonal...

Please tell me you didn't eat all 12 of 'em. That would be more carbo than is strictly necessary, even in this weather.

Six then, six later. I am the very model of moderation.
