Obrigado!

click and look a bit closer.

Many thanks to Argentum Vulgaris in Brazil for the link and plug over at 'Things that Fizz'. T.T.F. is a blog dedicated to curiosity and appetite, and to anyone whose eyes are bigger than their belly. All manner of curiosities are introduced here, and your every-day recipe may be a new thought to someone from another part of the planet. Did you know Laotians eat crispy mulberry leaves with chilli sauce? I didn't, but thanks to A.G. I do now, and I'm kicking myself for all the years spent among Greek mulberry trees whose leaves I could have bloody eaten but didn't. Shandy is not well known around the world, it seems, but AG brings it to a wider audience. It is not for me, shandy, but there is something here for everyone. I rarely drink beer and if I do, I only go for hooligan-strength stuff like Carlsberg Special Brew, which the local off-license man used to sell me in quantity when I was fourteen. I wasn't a hoodie avant la lettre, they just didn't fuss about kids so much then.

'You have a short-drinker's tastes, and a beer-drinker's capacity' my father used to say to me re. my love of booze. If this description fits you too, check out Argentum Vulgaris's blog.

Hi, welcome back. Do you cook the mulberry leaves, or just eat them as they are?

Shahrazad said...

No cooking habibi.
They are eaten as they are . I just love the tangy flavour and yummmy texture!

Off the topic...

I have never quite enjoyed pics of beautiful males as you have shared with us on your blog....

Always thought that women held the trophy. I thank you again for a real eye opener .

I love a shandy

Vilges Suola said...

I don't mind them, but I never get any desire for fizzy soft drinks.

Vilges, thanks for the plug, always appreciated. Those photos are great, I never suspected until I enlarged.
