    It ain’t nice without the rice

    Another weekend’s here which means I’ve been craving Indian curry rice for two months now. I just haven’t had a chance to go get my fix. Still I’m sure everyone’s relieved to hear I’m planning to ease…

    Beefing about Mrs Daggers

    Hoping to beef up our rather sad Picky Eater Approved Restaurant List, we went to a new (to us) Korean restaurant and ended up beefing about Mrs Daggers instead. We’ve visited this eatery once before. The place…

  • Just can't win

    You just can’t win

  • The thorns are laughing

    The thorns must be laughing

    How I ended up at, of all places, a durian restaurant, I don’t know. But yup, even the thorns must be laughing at me. While driving past one the other day, I recall my passenger having mentioned…

  • Carrot at the end of the yawn

    I’ll be honest. Grocery runs are getting to be a big old yawn. Things seem to be the same old, same old at the grocery store every week. I can think of grocery stores where each season…
