"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    It would have been baked @Helvio, if you'd put them in the oven. As @april says, it's grilled, but better still, it's been bbq'd. I bet they tasted good.

    By hamburger meat, do you mean minced beef @Steven?

    I found a shop nearby that sells slabs of peanut crunch. It's wicked! It's so morish.

    Ooh! I haven't had peanut crunch for years! I don't think my teeth would cope with it now! :P

    @mheredge , I try my best to learn cook english.. :)) hanmgbuger meat I mentioned is minced pork mixed diced onion , second grap a ball in your hand , third squeeze to a flat , and then cook it with pan fired. I call it a hamburger meat due it's part of a hangbuger. :) As you , I used to eat peanut crunch a lot, but I can't eat too much now for the sake of health. However, I still eat some peanuts for protecting from cardiovascular disease.

    I am trying my best to learn to cook English dishes. The hamburger meat I mentioned is minced pork mixed with diced onion. Form a ball in your hand, and squeeze it flat, then cook it in a frying pan.

    I call it hamburger meat because it's part of a hamburger. Like you, I used to eat peanut crunch a lot, but I can't eat too much now for the sake of my health. However, I still eat some peanuts to protect against cardiovascular disease.

    So a genuine hamburger @Steven. I suppose I was thinking of a beefburger. (I don't eat either much).

    I refrained from buying any more of that peanut crunch. It was too good and I was too much a pig as I ate it all last night.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,497 mod
    @Steven,
    Helvio and me know each other just here Steven. :)
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,747 mod
    Most of us have never met @Steven. But thought we're scattered across the globe, we can meet here.

    I ate spaghetti yesterday.
    What shall I eat today?
    Do you also ask the same question everyday?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,747 mod
    I have just had fried eggs - cooked sunny side - on toast and am now enjoying my pot of Darjeeling tea as I sit looking over the Darjeeling spread below me. Purrrrrrrrfect!
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,497 mod
    I can imagine the green Darjeeling tea plantation you are looking over @mheredge‌ :).
    Or are you talking about the view of the city Darjeeling? It is a city, right?

    I went to the zoo yesterday, which is about 20 minutes out of the town. I could see the Happy Valley tea gardens on the way. Darjeeling is indeed a city @april‌, which sprawls over a ridge and down quite steep hillsides.

    I'm contemplating what to have for breakfast, but Darjeeling wakes up very late, so for the time being, I'll have to brew up some coffee.

    Sausage with bulgur, carrots and peas,that was my dinner yesterday. :)
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,747 mod
    I think today it's going to be brunch as I got up very late! I had a very nice bacon sandwich yesterday (there's me saying I don't eat much meat, but this was the first meat for a long time).
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,747 mod
    Darjeeling wakes up very late...
    Sounds like my kind of place. :)

    We just sat out in the garden with a coffee and croissant. Yes - outside! It was boiling! I came in to cool off. (No I am not joking.)
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,497 mod
    I know what you mean @Lynne‌. It's quite warm here too :)
    Now we can talk about global warming, but actually I don't want to complain at all today. I'm enjoying the warmth of the sun at this moment.

    Since 1777 the Universität in Innsbruck records the weather condition and it has never recorded such a warm winter.
    I wonder if I have used the right tense in the second part of the sentence. Fingers crossed.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,747 mod
    I'm not sure what pisa badam is (some sort of nut I guess), but the worryingly yellow biscuits I'm nibbling with my hot chocolate don't taste too bad.
  • amatsuscribbleramatsuscribbler Posts: 2,287 mod
    @Hermine‌ - We have had a very mild(but VERY wet!) winter.
    Since 1777 Innsbruck University has recorded the weather and it has never recorded such a warm winter/ or -it has been the warmest winter on record.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,497 mod
    Earth population keeps growing.
    So it's understandable that our earth becomes warmer, no?
    We all beam the warmth. :))

    Right now I'm eating some 'cream balls' for breakfast. Not a drop of cream in sight though. They're a bit like donuts, though small, round balls. They'd be good with cream and maybe once upon a time, this is how they were prepared.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,812 mod
    I am having a cup of tea right now. First I put some milk in my new mug and than followed a tea bag, my daughter bought home from her last trip to London, and than I poured hot water into. Now I am waiting until it has cooled , because the tea is just too hot.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,747 mod
    Good girl @Hermine. You put the milk in first. As far as I'm concerned, this is the right way to make tea. And the water has to be boiling.

    I had rice and chicken curry at a little restaurant where the bus stopped. It wasn't bad. I also ate a few 'cream balls' which are donuts in disguise.

    @Marianne, I got that method taught from a native woman. She was so nice and showed me it in my kitchen, she was native.
    Today I had nothing from 6.30am till 3.30pm. I was starving. At home I ate too much.
