THIS POST COMES LATE IN THE DAY for Saturday I'm well aware. What little there is to tell that doesn't boil down (so to speak) to beef stew. Just kidding:
Or am I?
No, I had a crack at making dumplings this afternoon, using just selfraising flour and margarine. I did attempt this the other day. Glutinous balls was the result.
This time (and this was really the only difference) I made sure the margarine was hotter and the dumplings not pressed while they rolled. Man! They rose like the dawn sun! Came out almost crispy and dry in the middle (but not floury). I can't explain but they were almost like little crutons growing out of the stew. Quite pleasant.
I'm not, actually, sure what dumplings are supposed to be like. And I was not going to buy beef suet just to make them with either ...
If anyone has answers, please tell me!
WELL apart from dumplings - what is it with me? That I should constantly be so exhausted. Sleeping. Deeply sleeping. Yet still unable to pick myself up afterwards. And it doesn't feel like the old "too much sleep makes you tired" clanger. It's more like too much tired makes me sleep. That's how it feels to me ...
PARIS HILTON'S GONE BACK TO JAIL! How I scoffed and cawed at that one. Making horrible remarks about her all over people's comments (which was hypocritical actually, in the light of what I posted yesterday - because she IS a living human being). But hey!
This comment I left at Deb's blog puts my feelings most succinctly:
She's back in to be punished again, last I heard. I'm so glad.
Let her out. What? So she can sit at home under "house arrest" snorting lines of coke, watching DVDs and calling all her friends. I don't think so. Would they let an unemployed black woman have the same liberties just because she "broke down"..? I don't think so. No! Paris deserves to serve every second of her sentence. Definitely no early release. That will pay her back for doing The Simple Life!!
I did however feel slightly sorry for her when I woke up just now.
(I slept between about eight o'clock and midnight. How inconvenient.)
Well I'm having a passable weekend. Hope y'all are too ....
o no! look what my google listing says about me now:
