Still feeling clogged up, I'm only eating breakfast at all cos I need the fuel, but I still can't face more than three slices of white toast to soak up the morning coffee.
In mid-afternoon, after solo shopping adventures in the supermarket, I have a hunk of fresh floury Chapata bread with a mature chunk of Cheddar cheese dusted with freshly milled pepper, mmm!
Later, in another series of delicious nibbles that are Tapas in size though not at all Latino, there was a fabulous brown sandwich filled with slices of Turkey meat stuffed with a hard boiled egg and studded with sliced Truffle
I read in Wikipedia that in the 18th and 19th Centuries it was thought "The greatest delicacy was a truffled turkey." Italian composer Rossini
once said "I have wept three times in my life. Once when my first opera failed. Once again, the first time I heard Paganini
play the violin. And once when a truffled turkey fell overboard at a boating picnic.".................
Chocolate Truffles - photo from Wikipedia
That tasty treat sets off a little orgy of excess that includes two chocolate truffles; three Custard Creams
; three Bourbon biscuits
; a Granny Smith apple; a Cheddar Cheese and Pork Loin with Chapata bread munchie; and, to round things off, a chocolate yoghurt dessert. That's all I ate today.
