|Is this a common leg?|
"It's all very well dearie [Mrs. Christie], he's quite distinguished in looks. It's just unfortunate that he has such common
Goodness, one can have common
How interesting it is that in Mrs. Christie's days, faces were a premium whereas in mine, it's legs or limbs. Now, I wonder what constitutes common
Today I went to 4th Avenue for my annual walk-about. Very quickly, I remembered why I only go there once a year. It's the people who shop, eat and wander about in the area - they're generally insufferable and overly concerned about which central American country an avocado comes from, or whether the wool for the sweater is from sheep fed whole grain grass, nurtured on the best rain water. It's a very consumerist, first-worldly crowd with an more-ecologically-minded-than-thou attitude. I had to leave quite and have set this post to pop up on my calendar in a year's time so I remember not to go to 4th Avenue ever again.
Tender grilled chicken breasts pre-marinated in the vacuum marinator that DWE and ML so kindly gave me. It works a treat. Such succulent grilled meats - or maybe it was the butter and cream sauce that went on it. Caramelized carrots and Brussels sprouts to accompany the grilled viands. Then baked apples with port to finish.
Even better, I now have sensible, healthy dinners for the rest of the week and can stop eating potato chip sandwiches (it was whole wheat bread), chocolate digestives, jelly beans, ice-cream bars and honey-sesame seed biscuits. Truly that was what I've been eating at home.
And now, it's off to bed.
