Rounding up all my receipts today for the trip to Tallinn last week, I reflected on the cuisine that Estonia offered by way of its (overground) restaurants. Sadly, the highlight of the week was a local blood sausage dish. Nothing sad about that you might say, except that it wholeheartedly defeated such promising dishes as filet mignon and carpaccio. Furthermore, spoilingly so, everything
came with sauerkraut. I didn't dare order the sauerkraut in case it was accompanied by its… Continue

Nomad Chef excelled herself at her 4th of July Celebration today. Billed as an American extravaganza, the event passed all expectations. Gumbo was the main event I thought, until the Peach Melba Pie arrived, and I was in heaven. The party was embellished with a Facebook group of 'Sex & The City' people who lived entirely up to the name - expect some photos from the host soon. Here I am rolling in at midnight, when I was supposed to leave at 7pm. Nomad Chef, the hostess with the mostess,… Continue

A week of uncertainty in the Public Sector as I await David Cameron's announcement about how much of my (as yet) unredeemed pension he will take to line the bonuses of the nationalised bankers. Top tip: don't lick a steak knife - especially if it's gently prodding you in the back. Imagine being elected on a mandate to cause severe pain! They must be rubbing their hands with glee. Reminds me of the newspaper headline: "Prime Minister promises more lies ahead". Aw well, off to Estonia next… Continue

Having boarded my routine No 24 bus from Whitehall to Pimlico this evening, the passengers were aroused from their apathy by a sudden stop. This was followed by an announcement from the latin driver that sounded just like a blueberry muffin recipe. When I challenged the driver face to face, he instructed us all to get off as the bus was being diverted, or terminated, or something. Just before departure, I had to ask if the driver recommended that the blueberrries were sliced or kept whole,… Continue

I am wondering if Fabio Capello is aware of the charity that provides Labrador Guide Dogs for England Goalkeepers? Our wonderful World Cup Team just joined BP amongst the top world rankings for spilling things over Americans. Maybe it's best not to invite Robert Green to your Shrove Tuesday Party. Unless tossing pancakes is a required skill. Sighs............

Tried to make soup today. But I made it so thick that when I tried to stir it the room went round. It was so bad that I had to give it to the dog. But the dog then gave it to the cat, who then gave it to a homeless person, who used it to stick his cardboard shelter together. No more soup attempts, methinks. Sticking to vacuum-packed mackerel fillets (the cat nods, the dog sulks). Don't you think msmarmitelover's icon makes her look like Dawn Porter?

Week 12 of a zero carb diet. Feeling really off-colour. Can barely do 1 hour of CV in the gym anymore. God, the photos of these great meals look good. Nearly fell down a drain the other day, but my umbrella caught on the railings. Would love to go to one of these underground dinners as a treat but struggling to find any in C. London when I am here for the weekend. The Blueberry Muffins I have been dreaming about have started talking to me. It's a worrying development.
