Don’t be put off by the name !

These are simply dee-lishus ! – do they not look so ?

Best consumed greedily with something like yoghourt with a chopped herb you like mixed in: fennel ? – chives ? – basil is really good. Something to dip ’em in. Sweet chilli sauce is extra yummy. Whatever.

You will eat the lot, depending …

  1. Whisper it quietly but the chap who used to blog about cycling around Ireland and Scotland had started a new blog about books and the law. Not too exciting but it suits my present purposes. And I love the cabbage patties. Simon

      My dear blogging friend of yore (but forever), this is some of the best news I’ve had in – oh, AGES and AGES !!!
      As my father was a lawyer and two of his brothers, it is a topic not totally strange to me (meaning the law bit).
      As for the book bit, although I can no longer actually read but am obliged to listen (no sight problem, just a concentration one), books remain wonderful in my eyes.
      Dear Simon, I look forward to this more than I can possibly say !
