“White Chocolate” is not, of course, pure white — but let’s not be picky when we’re dealing with something so tasty.
When Jude asked “What edible greens can you find in your world?” I did a mental inventory of the veggie compartment in my fridge. One zucchini (or courgette, if you prefer) and one cucumber was the grand total; not even a lime! I must admit I quite like the feature photo, which reminds me of the side of a whale that’s been battered and scarred in some rough encounters. (okay, a green whale)
(And, woo hoo!, some experimentation and some tips from helpful followers revealed that clicking on the number of posts under ‘At a Glance’ in my dashboard will take me to the old Posts page, where the dropdown choice of Block and Classic for Add New still exists. Happy day. 🙂 Take that, evil block editor!! )
I was so inspired by the memory of this cake that I bought some tinned pineapple yesterday to make a more traditional pineapple upside-down cake. But the sun came out after days of rain, so I went to the beach instead. 🙂
Posted for Becky’s SquareUp challenge. I’ve gone with “playing around with the word up”.
I’ve had a number of “tasting flights” over the years — wine, beer, whiskey, port — but never one featuring hot chocolate. From left to right: chili (too fiery for my taste), standard (good), gingerbread (excellent). From The Gingerbread House in Katoomba, Blue Mountains (west of Sydney). I’d just spent 1.5 hours walking in the ceaseless rain and 15 degrees C, and these hot chocolates were wonderfully warming — as was the heater I sat beside. 😉

In February, a friend and I went to the Tomato Festival at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney. There were tomatoes to taste, tomatoes to eat, tomatoes to drink, cooking and canning classes, a food market — a veritable celebration of tomatoes! And there were many more people than I expected for such a quirky event.
There was tomato artwork in the form of a mandala (a circular figure representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism), albeit with non-tomato elements.
I arrived before my friend, and indulged in something sweet while waiting.
Time to taste!
We both agreed that this was our favourite:
I’m not sure that it is easy being green, but it was easy to drink this Mojito from the Pavilion Pool and bar on Queen Mary 2. Some people will be surprised to learn that I don’t live on champagne alone!
