).Well, we bought a nice cheap bunch of daffodils from the supermarket, and then I saw the following warning on the label:
DO NOT EAT
This would have been fine, had we not intended them for our evening meal, sauteed in butter, and served with my special Hollondaise sauce (recipe - from an old post - here).
Why do they have to spoil everything?
I am now looking at my own daffodils and my stomach is rumbling - never mind there are some nice tulips in my front garden.ReplyDelete
A tulip would be lovely. You could stuff it with...well, you could stuff it...?Delete
That's like the story I heard about the ladder that had, written on the top rung, STOP HERE.ReplyDelete
...or the sign which says DO NOT REMOVE THIS SIGN?Delete
Strange but true - when I try to click the link to your Hollandaise recipe, it tells me I do not have access to this page with the account I am online with at the moment... But it is my only blogger account, so I'll have to go without your recipe.ReplyDelete

I was once acquainted (professionally) with a very eminent and brilliant expert witness of Welsh descent. He had no time for people with 'side' and I recall once being at a St David's Day dinner with The Great and The Good. He decided that TGATG were getting far too up themselves so he brought that particular conversation to a halt by taking a daffodil from a vase in the centre of the table putting salt on it and proceeding to eat it. When he obviously had everyone's attention he simply said "Isn't that what they are on the table for?"ReplyDelete
