I don’t always eat exotic Indonesian, Mollucaanse, Chinese, Japanese and Italian “foreign muck” as one of our neighbours calls it. Garlic bread is foreign muck apparently. This afternoon for a snack, which is an excellent fat burner apparently, I had mushy peas! I added a considerable amount of garlic and two drops of Kruidvat vlooibaar zoet (liquid sugar to me an thee), then cooked a tin of mock duck from the Chinky supermarket and popped it on top of the peas. Like an Aussie “floater” but without the pie. You can buy mock duck or pork in Tesco as well now, £1.29 a tin, roughly the same price as the Tai Sun supermarket. It’s tofu or bean curd, ideal for grass eaters and salad dodgers alike. Tonight we had Greek foreign muck, Gyros with rice and Spanish peppers. We were going to get paella, Spanish foreign muck but Astrid found the Gyros so we had that. Tuesday is deadline day at the paper where Astrid works, so we always have a ready meal if she finishes late.
