Crocs. Fashion faux pas? Do you love them or hate them? I wonder if Peter Pan would wear Crocs...?
We use Crocs in our house as slippers.
A certain dog, *Cough Eric*, obviously dislikes them and wanted not one pair but 2 pairs to be put in the bin.
I give you Exhibit A
Both pairs are covered in paint splatters and dust, but they are really useful and easy to put on and take off. I do not wear them in the street, rather I use them as Hausfrau slippers.
Eric, decided that these shoes had to be killed. Notice that it is the right shoe of both pairs? Hmm. I couldnt find him when I came in, he had been alone for 2 hours. Where was he? He was obviously so scared that he had destroyed the shoes that he was hiding. Where was he? Behind the sofa, shaking like a leaf. My heart sinks at this. And I have to wonder, what the heck have his previous owners done it him? When I walked by, he only caught my eye as he dash, belly low to the floor and out the door and hid in doorway of the bathroom. This makes me feel very sad. It was our fault for leaving them out. Poor Eric... Bless him. This followed him having to have a bath at 6 am, due to an incident, where he rolled in something disgusting. Today really isnt his day. He is having a lovely bit of fresh cooked chicken with his dinner, that should perk him up. If not we will try a little bit of cheese.
In other news in the reductions aisle at the supermarket there were 6 bags of potatoes reduced to 10p each. All together 15kg for 60p!!!! BARGAIN! And what do you do with that amout of potatoes to make sure they dont go off? Well you make them in to parmentier potatoes, Sol style. I make them and then I freeze them. I can then bring them out and 15 minutes in the oven, bang, deliciousness on your plate. I dont make them like Jamie Oliver, nope that would be too easy. I dice all of the potatoes in to small cubes, aiming for 1.5cm squares. Here is where it is different, I parboil them in water with fine grated garlic and chopped rosemary. Lots of rosemary and garlic. I drain them, tip them back in the saucepan and pour over lots of olive oil. Lay the potatoes our on baking sheets in a single layer. Roast in the oven say 180 oC until they start to crisp up and go ever so slightly golden. You can now freeze these, and take our as much as you want for your dinner at that time. Say a mug full for a man... Put them back on a baking sheet, 180-200 oC depending on your oven. 15 minutes later, shovel into your face. To give them a bit more zing, spritz with lemon juice and salt. Yummy!
Are you ready for bonfire night? We have a loud film and the calm vapouriser for Eric. It makes me feel sick from the stink of it, but if it helps him then I can cope with that.
