  1. What are you cooking today?

    Well Katheliz, a hearty congratulations!! And you did it over the hardest time of the year - Winter Holidays! A double congratulations is in order! Keep up the good work. But remember, spoiling oneself never hurts either, once in a while...

    Have just run across a website to put in your back pocket:  
  5. Gyms with private shower options?

    @lisa13:  I'm surprised to hear you say that. My experience is the opposite - no one EVER takes all their clothes off in a public shower. I grew up next to a county pool (PA), which was like my backyard, so i've seen quite a few girls/women showering in my day...  When my kids were in High School (early-mid 2000s) there, I was surprised to hear that the students no longer showered after gym class. I was told it was a blanket privacy issue. When I told them that in Germany we even have little kids getting hosed off while naked in the summer (Kindergarten), they were shocked.  Re:  Draftophobia:, I still cannot get next to the German thing about changing swimsuits at the Freibad. The same mothers w/the hosed-down kids would make their kids change into a dry swimsuit in the middle of a swim day. When I asked my daughter the reason for this time-waster, she told me that it was so they didn't catch cold - wearing wet clothes outdoors. It was 30° in the shade!             I was amused.

    Nigella Lawson, British Cookery Writer.   " You do not have to be a devout Christian to observe Pancake Day. I couldn't let the date pass without making a batch of these: it would seem a sin against tradition, nature and greed, that other holy trinity. They're not difficult to make - just your basic crepes - and you can fill them however you like. I have to have mine as I always did as a child, that's to say, sprinkled with granulated sugar and squeezed with lemon juice. But we live in a more vulgar age now, and my children like theirs spread with Nutella."

    I have a leaky brain, so didn't want to wait for the end of the month to post this, for fear of forgetting. Annual family favourite. My daughter studied in Lugano, and says she was so disappointed that she didn't know about this, she could have visited them and helped with the harvest (she says. Probably wanted to oogle those migrant spaghetti pickers that surely were needed...)...

    Tuesday is Pancake Day for many. So....I practice. Not the kind of Scotch I'd prefer, but....   " Scotch pancakes (also know as drop scones) are smaller and thicker than the crêpe-like pancakes we enjoy on pancake day. Like American pancakes, they can be stacked and enjoyed with fruits and honey, but traditionally they are served with lashings of jam or melted butter. For a fruity variation, try adding lemon zest to the batter and sprinkling some raisins into the pancakes as they cook."
