Cuisine Wemyss (a meme)

Good God, man, how do you move! Though I must say the Brekker sounds pretty civilised. I try to get a proper brunch in at weekends, but as I can't eat immediately after I get up and I need as much beauty sleep as possible, I don't eat breakfast during the week.
wemyss From: wemyss Date: January 11th, 2010 04:37 pm (UTC) (Link)

Staggeringly well.

I'm quite active in the interim, you know. Country life and All That. Still just shy of ten stone, even at my age.

Re: Staggeringly well.

*g* I didn't mean to imply either obesity or infirmity. I can't work in the afternoon if I have more than a sandwich at lunch, so a breakfast like that would set me up nicely for a mid-morning snooze.

Wherefore staggering.

And after all, Winston won the war on mid-day kips.

Re: Wherefore staggering.


And after all, Winston won the war on mid-day kips.

Not forgetting the mid-day bottle of scotch.

I see we share a taste for the same teas. Why am I not surprised?

Peace,
Bubba
wemyss From: wemyss Date: January 11th, 2010 04:37 pm (UTC) (Link)

Then again....

We share a remarkable number of tastes.

Haut-Brion or Mission Haut Brion?

Otherwise, essentially yummy (I have doubts on the salsify. Not much else.)

I would also, alas, balloon to Dawn French cubed if I ate only half this...

shezan From: shezan Date: January 11th, 2010 04:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
(Wasn't paying attention. Mission it is.)
wemyss From: wemyss Date: January 11th, 2010 05:45 pm (UTC) (Link)

Well, yes.

Save the best stuff for the festival days on the Kalendar.

Oh, I cook.

Quite enjoy it. And allows me to make wee portions and freeze things - had I gone through a week's list, you'd see plenty of re-appearances.

And how cd anyone turn down Stilton?

Mmm, salsify. Difficult to get hold of, but good stuff. I wish I knew a decent source of potato cakes, too. Though I suppose one could make them (I was spoiled by the St Andrews baker, who did very good ones).
l_aqrchard From: l_aqrchard Date: January 15th, 2010 12:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Which one? I remember several very good bakers in St Andrews.
tree_and_leaf From: tree_and_leaf Date: January 15th, 2010 12:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Fisher and Donaldson.
l_aqrchard From: l_aqrchard Date: January 15th, 2010 03:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
They are probably the best. They do fantastic Strawberry tarts as well.
tree_and_leaf From: tree_and_leaf Date: January 15th, 2010 06:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
And the fudge doughnuts...
sgt_majorette From: sgt_majorette Date: January 11th, 2010 07:49 pm (UTC) (Link)

Lapsang Souchong!

I take a lot of crap for it, but I couldn't get through the winter without my funky smoked tea! Except (brace for impact) I take light cream in my mine...
blamebrampton From: blamebrampton Date: January 11th, 2010 10:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
I would fear for your arteries, but I am assuming that this is all usually accompanied by many hours of Things Outside of a day. So now I merely covet your damsons.
femmequixotic From: femmequixotic Date: January 11th, 2010 10:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Damson preserves are my favourite, and they are surprisingly difficult to obtain in my neck of the woods for some reason, alas. I need to have my mother send me up a jar or two from home the next time she ships a bag of grits up North. :D

And your tea choices are properly delicious.
noeon From: noeon Date: January 12th, 2010 12:35 am (UTC) (Link)
My grandfather grew damsons. I believe Russo's has them in season. And they may even have grits.
femmequixotic From: femmequixotic Date: January 12th, 2010 12:50 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, wow, we must make a trip soon to see. If they have grits I will be ridiculously happy as a loon, let me tell you.
noeon From: noeon Date: January 12th, 2010 12:54 am (UTC) (Link)
*hugs you and your loon-acy*

We shan't tell them they're not for roads. (Although, you know, they might do in a pinch.)
femmequixotic From: femmequixotic Date: January 12th, 2010 01:00 am (UTC) (Link)
There will be no desecration of my hominy by tossing it on icy asphalt, woman! :D

Although, I do note they sprayed all the streets down with that salt spray this weekend. My entire street looks whitewashed and so does downtown.
noeon From: noeon Date: January 12th, 2010 01:06 am (UTC) (Link)
There is certainly a grits shortage here.

I wish they'd salt the walks. The roads are clear but walking is treacherous.
femmequixotic From: femmequixotic Date: January 12th, 2010 01:11 am (UTC) (Link)
As a Southerner, I can definitely say the lack of grits in the Northeast is appalling. *g*

I know--I had a bit of a slide on the bricks in Downtown Crossing this afternoon.
noeon From: noeon Date: January 12th, 2010 01:16 am (UTC) (Link)
That's not the only thing that's appalling, I'm sure, just one of the more edible outrages.

The bricks are the worst. Are you all right?
femmequixotic From: femmequixotic Date: January 12th, 2010 01:21 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, yeah, I'm fine. Just slid a little, but I caught myself. Bah on winter. :D
noeon From: noeon Date: January 12th, 2010 01:22 am (UTC) (Link)
Good. Yes. Bah! And double bah on iced uneven brick paving.
femmequixotic From: femmequixotic Date: January 12th, 2010 01:23 am (UTC) (Link)
Whoever in Boston thought brick sidewalks were a good thing in winter should be throttled, I say.
noeon From: noeon Date: January 12th, 2010 01:29 am (UTC) (Link)
We may be throttling statues, or descendants, but I'm in.
noeon From: noeon Date: January 12th, 2010 12:30 am (UTC) (Link)
How do you eat the Shipping Forecast? *ponders*

White Stilton with ginger sounds divine.
el_staplador From: el_staplador Date: January 12th, 2010 06:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
I am interested in the winter pudding; it sounds most intriguing.
