No, I didn't! I suppose this is true...

Food on Friday: Capers & Olives

The theme for this Food on Friday are those salty delights – capers & olives.  And I have another little surprise for you, too.

To add your dish featuring capers and/or olives, just put the name of the dish together with your blog name/name into the first Mr Linky box you will find below.  Then paste the url for your post about it into the second box.

I'll be pinning the caper/olive links to this Pinboard – this is a quick way for you to scan the dishes and choose which ones you want to check out in more detail.

You will have spotted that there are 2 Mr Linky boxes at the bottom of this post – use the first Food on Friday one for dishes featuring capers or olives. 

Since the theme is fairly restricted I have decided to add a second collection where you can add one dish of your choice that you would like to share – no theme – I've called this Anything Goes.  I'll pin your dishes to a relevant Pinboard too.  If you like this idea I'll do it each time the theme is a narrow one.

Have fun!

Tea, crackers and marmite

If I ever have an upset stomach and can't face food, I resort to drinking weak black tea and eating thin crackers with a smear of Marmite on them.  I'm not sure if it makes any medical sense but it seems to work.  What do you do?

PS  We Kiwis (New Zealanders) love our Marmite.  In Australia their favourite spread is Vegemite – which is similar but different.  Both are very strong tasting spreads and need to be used sparingly!

Food on Friday: Christmas Favourites  ended up having an extravaganza of Christmas food.  At the time of writing this 100 dishes were linked in.  To see them at a glance I suggest you head over to this Pinboard.

I have chosen a few of the dishes to inspire you today.

Nostalgia Alert!

Bewitched – the old TV series not the movie

Bewitched was a super TV series – it ran for eight seasons (1964-72)– not many shows manage that these days! Loved the old special effects.  Can any of you wriggle your nose like Samantha?

To see the opening credits and hear the theme tune, just click onto this YouTube clip.
