Nori Maki

14/08/2008

A random fact about me – When I wake up, I try and write down the first word or phrase that comes to mind. It’s often ‘ten more minutes’ or ‘I don’t want to…’. Today? It was Nori Maki. Weird!

Last night’s ice cream – hooh boy.

002

The Ice cream base was a Sumatra Coconut, with Toasted Sesame Brittle in it. I added salted peanuts (I’m a sucker for salty & sweet) and a drizzle of runny almond butter, then stuck it back into the freezer to let the AB harden.

When I took it out, the ice cream was incredibly fluffy. The almond butter was chewy, and the peanuts were deliciously salty.

004

To say it was heaven in a bowl would be an understatement. The harmony of all the flavours themselves couldn’t even be described as simply amazing.

005

And the ice cream spoon I bought in Bern. It’s really small, so I savour every last bite.

On this morning – Coffee in the London mug. It’s my biggest mug …

Right behind ‘im is my new candle – Honey and Coffee. Oh, it’s great.

And I’d like to show you the scrumptiousness known as my Krisproll tradition – Which I have every morning, rain or shine –

The Krisproll becomes soggy, and the flavour of the sweet, nutty coffee just enrobes each little crumb. A tradition I wouldn’t trade for anything.

For the record, I had a tiny corner of the pizza from last night – There’s really nothing like cold pizza. Especially left over Rosemary Whole Wheat Veggie Pizza.

All I felt like digging into this morning was a huge bowl of oats. So oats I ate. Last night’s peanuts on ice cream made me want nutty oats – So I sprinkled a bit of almond extract into the oats, along with banana and vanilla. On top were toasted walnuts, peanuts, and a spoonful of AB.

009

Then I went to Kath’s website, and it looks like we had the same idea! I was freaked out.

011

With the last 30 pages of my book – Stephen King On Writing. If you’re a fan of King like me, then it’s a great book. It’s even a great book if you’ve no idea who the bloke is.
