You're kidding…right?

sad-boyThis recipe was advertised on my Googlemail page and just the title made me click on it.  I had no idea that people still ate Spam let alone a ‘French Fry and Spam Casserole’ (with a few crushed cornflakes in there for good measure)! 

Actually this inspires me to start collecting the worst sounding recipes I can find.  At some point I may (may, I say) actually try them to see if they really do taste as bad as they sound.  Anyone want to contribute?  Genuine recipes only (together with a note of the source if you can).

Here is the recipe for Spam and French Fry Casserole, as listed at recipesource.com.  Try it – I dare you.

I'm coming home

At the risk of sounding like a complete know-it-all, for me there are certain albums that you just have to have listened to if you truly want to call yourself a modern music fan.  Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’ is probably top of the list.  I can listen to it right now and it still gives me the shivers.  Her writing is beautiful and her voice crystal clear.  I found this live performance of one of my favourite songs on You Tube today and as I’ve been mulling over holidays this morning, it seemed entirely appropriate to post it.  (Sorry, there will be no prizes for guessing where I want to holiday again)!
