Flamingo Files: sugarless, Sunday style.

Sunday breakfast - I used the last of our savings to buy a banana !

Keep your head above water, USA! Oh, that could apply in more ways that one, couldn’t it? Stay dry, stay safe. When our children were small, my Mum would rock them to sleep while she sang them “Goodnight Irene”. Maybe now is not the time to tell you that…

Economic indicators? Next time you are in your supermarket, check out the egg section. If you are in a “wealthy” area the egg section will be small, if however you are shopping in a “poorer” area, the egg section will be large. In these hard economic times, egg sales are going through the roof, because many people can not afford meat, and are eating eggs as their source of protein.

I am trying to give up sugar, as I am indeed a sugar addict. I am into day four and I find that I am eating more protein (eggs for breakfast!). Our raised vegetable garden is starting to provide us with lots of vegetables so that will help, but I do love to bake….muffins! I shall have to look for sugarless alternatives! And no, I will never use artificial sweetener. My body is a temple after all.

Macaroons? So yesterday!

I read that macaroons as so yesterday.  Now the in food is DOUGHNUTS! Not your ordinary everyday doughnuts, but doughnuts with fennel seed sugar or lemon curd. Shall we do a media watch and monitor how long the blogosphere takes to start drooling over doughnuts? I guess you can count me as number one (naturally!).

I forgot to have a Plan B. In fact, I should have had a Plan C,D,E,F, and G, as well. Life is like that.

Do I really need a text message form a co-worker telling me she has had a “big vomit”?

Are you still an adolescent at heart? In many ways, I think men remain adolescents at heart. Women certainly don’t, for even as adolescents we females want to be adults. I make no comment about Mr FD – hell, yes I will. Possibly, he is Neanderthal at heart. On his good days.

I was browsing recipe sites when I came across a list of aphrodisiac ingredients. The list included garlic! Garlic? As in garlic breath?  The list must have originally been compiled by a father of many daughters!

I am going to take this week by the neck and make it dance to my tune… at least Monday…maybe?

Don’t you love the way the rioters in England are “blaming” Facebook for the fact that they rioted? It was on Facebook, so I joined in. So that proves it, we really will jump off a cliff if everyone else does. Mother was right! Aren’t we a species to be proud of?

Do you realise that in just four months, Christmas will be over?

If you plan a spontaneous moment, is it spontaneous?
