Do rats eat spiders? I guess I could google it easily enough, but it might shatter the idea that has somehow formed that the unpleasant rodent sentries that prowl the land are at least doing something useful. Is starting a recipe blog post with talk of rats and spiders a good idea? I would imagine it definitely doesn’t make the top 10 tips for food bloggers.
Shall we talk about music instead for a moment? On Sunday I downloaded Yazoo ‘Only You’, Human League ‘Together in Electric Dreams’ and Wheatus’ Teenage Dirtbag’. I then listened to them on a loop while pottering in the kitchen making soup and apple brownies (which I will put up on the blog soon – definitely the best use of apples from the tree so far). The stresses of the week, which were numerous, and less worthy of blog-space than spiders, melted away.
One super hot fat chilli from the garden
4 -5 cloves of garlic
Cup red lentils
2 large sweet potatoes
Enough stock to cover everything
Fry the garlic and chilli in butter, add everything else except the sour cream and simmer for 40 minutes or so. Blend with the sour cream. Hope the chilli was one of the super hot ones rather than the crazy, little red beasts. Ponder whether rats eat spiders, whilst singing along to Teenage Dirtbag.
