Where Does It Come From?
Welcome, once again, to the blogosphere. It's been a while since the last entry, so I'll try and make up for it with a bumper edition this time around.
First off, I bought some cheese the other day, and very nice it was. It was called Cornish Yarg, somewhat similar to Caerphilly, I'd say, and really very good on toast. If you can get any then I highly recommend it to you all.
So, then, let's get into the meat of this entry. Meat. If people eat meat then they should know where it comes from, and I'm not sure people do any more. Meat does not grow in white styrene trays. Meat is not found only on supermarket shelves wrapped in cling film neatly labelled with cooking instructions. Meat comes from animals. Fluffy bunnies, woolly lambs, happy porky pigs and contented cows. Meat eaters should, before they are allowed to buy and cook meat, be made to tour an abattoir. There would be a huge rise in the number of vegetarians, most probably. But then again maybe not. Do kids regard McDonalds as meat? There is such a lack of knowledge these days, it frightens me. People eat processed shiit made from MRM and e numbers without a bloody clue as to what's in it. Real, tasty meat is from well reared, well cared for animals (or wild game) slaughtered humanely and with the meat hung for a decent time so those cute little enzymes can get to work. That bright pink crap that's sold to Joe Public is not worthy of the name. But it's probably worthy of Joe Public. Nuff said.
And on to Part 2
Grow your own veggies! Nutritious and delicious. Even more so when you've cultivated them yourself. I don't know why more folk don't do it. Yes I do. They're so addicted to artificial flavouring and preservatives that they wouldn't know a fresh veggie if it bit them on the arse. And fresh veggies don't taste like McDonalds or Pizza Hut or Doritos. And that's why they're so bloody obese. I have no sympathy.
Another piece of Chez Gorilla fell off last week. Well, what do you expect? It's an old house and of course bits will just drop off from time to time. Some of the lovely old cast iron guttering gave up the ghost late one night and made a really impressive noise when it landed and shattered. Could have killed somebody, if they'd been standing directly underneath it, which they weren't because there was nobody there. So, anyway, that now needs replacing but what to choose? Cast iron or cast aluminium (alooominumm)? Certainly not uPVC - how common. The cast ali is colour coated so seems the better choice, but we'll have to wait and see because the reason the guttering fell off in the first place is that the fascia is rotten. Bugger.
There is no part 4 due to a lack of hummus.
Bye for now
