In a coals-to-Newcastle type operation

Preview of Orange Polenta cake, traveling to a mansion in Cheshire for dessert after thrashing ‘crazy Rafa’s’ (‘I’m winning the mind games me la, que pasa’) lot tomorrow night. I made it myself, but to be honest I have slightly messed the ingredients up and I think it may taste like sand.

    Mmmmmm, looks yummy to me!! Excuse me while I rummage around for a cookie…..

    Okay, that’s better. Stephen, I was wondering if you have ever considered having a movie made of Walking Ollie, or Along Came Dylan? Hollywood can certainly use some good material now, as most of it is garbage (my opinion.) Americans love movies about dogs. I have no doubt that the tails, er tales about Ollie and Dylan would be big winners.

    Good idea, Patty. Naturally, I would star as myself. 😉

    Oi, winger, that looks ok but the ‘sand’ bit is a little disconcerting. Mind you, according to Eli Grumpy, we are having warmed up left-overs at Elt-on-Towers so your pudding should be the star of the show.

    Me and ST are bringing some cheap plonk. You and Grumpy can buy your own Sancerre.

    I’ll see you laters, Boy. After the thrashing by L’pool methinks. Keep your views to yourself if you’re near the touchline. Stevie Gerrard might hear you and give you a sound thrashing if he takes your comments badly. 🙂

    M. le etc…

    Take a small slice out of it, if it doesn’t taste nice, smother it with marmite and mayonnaise, frame it, and call it art.

    Food should never be wasted. 😉

    quite so Mr Mich 🙂

    Pls be my agent Patty…

  5. Stephen Foster says:

    Why bother starring as yourself OS when we could get Brad Pitt to play you?

    nb: is it cold over there?

  6. Patty Gross says:

    I think I’m up to the challenge Stephen 🙂 Who would play Trezza? Can she act? OS, I think you would be splendid playing yourself! I’m tired of these “pretty boy” types myself. All fluff!

    Cold doesn’t even touch on the weather here in Maine today. Frozen, barren wasteland would be more accurate. Sunny, but biting cold and red alert for 6″ of snow here, but NYC is bracing off for 8″ of snow. Which as we all know will bring that metropolis to a screeching halt!

    that looks very acceptable indeed, a big step up from the saveloy-n-glace-cherry bites.

    anjali, he was right about the sand bit. It reminded me of the time I was in the Negev Dessert eating with the Bedouin. All I needed was to rub noses three times with the guys, some dates, mutton, goat, camel meat and camel milk to go with it, accompanied by the sound of Eli Grumpy and Mr Pink on the rebab with winger doing the singing, and I would have been quite at home. As it was, it was too sandy for the European palate. Swiss Tony ended our misery by giving it to the wood pigeons. They liked it so we renamed it Trill Cake. 😉

    Click on the link. It sounds like winger after he’s drunk a few bottles of red.
