sad about a pudding

September 14th, 2010 (11:39 am)
okay

current mood: okay

Have you noticed? I'm trying to start a LJ renaissance. Between meetings.

Today I'm slightly sad about a crumble. Saturday I picked blackberries on the way home, and then made a crumble that we were supposed to have for pudding on Saturday night. But due to all the Saturday night drama, the pudding wasn't eaten. It is still untouched in the fridge, and I know that it's going to go in the bin. I mind more because I picked the berries, and it was the only blackberrying I've done this summer. I left it until the last minute. Next year I will try to do better.

Can you not eat it tonight?

I think I can't get up the enthusiasm.

Can you not freeze it?

It would be sad to bin it. Or take it into work, or give it to a neigbour?

Cake or Death?

Yes this... all of the above!

Personally I'd eat it for breakfast!

Some like it in the pot, nine days old...
I'd eat it, warmed up it should be fine.

OK, this is rather unusual for me, but my appetite has been quite erratic lately, and sweet things after dinner just don't appeal.

Maybe have it before dinner, or instead of dinner! Or take a slab of it to work to have with your coffee break.

I'd freeze it in portions, so it could be eaten whenever, even if alone.

Me too, there's nothing to go off much in a crumble. So at the very least it could be passed on to a deserving recipient.

All the misery in the world, and we're agitating ourselves about the tragic waste of Badasstronaut's crumble. But hey, she picked the berries herself!

It's easy to be vaguely mildly rueful about berry wastage. Real misery is much harder to deal with.

It sounds like you need someone to share it with to show off your work. I wish I could come over and eat it with you. However, flight time alone might make that a silly idea. It also sounds like you're being down on yourself for not blackberrying more, which is probably unnecessary. The being down on, at least.

I feel like it's wrong to let an August/Sept pass without at least one attempt at blackberrying. And blackberrying is pointless if you waste the berries.

I am of the "freeze it and eat it later" camp, even if it is three days old.

I hear your sadness. I still have blackberries in the fridge that I picked a few weeks ago and didn't even turn into anything.

Alas, they have probably grown fuzz by now.

At least they turned into something.

Into each food recycling bin, a little uneaten home cooking must fall.

That reminds me, I never blogged eating heart!

Re: philosophical

You were eating a heart? Or is it a metaphor?

They were just there, at the farmers market. I was consumed by curiosity.

Re: in a casserole

Well, they ought to be fairly lean and iron-laden.

They need a long cook, but I was pleased with the result

un berry related, but do you want your fabulous prize sent to your home or work?

Posted by: Teacake (badasstronaut)
Posted at: September 14th, 2010 07:17 pm (UTC)

A fabulous prize! Work is probably safest lest they try to scrunch it through the letterbox.

Did you make a good chunk of fees payment from the raffle?

Thank you for your renaissance. I much prefer the longer messages, more content, you get in LJ to Facething.

I ate blackberries for breakfast on Shotover hill on Sunday morning, a nice reward for having walked up there. This does not help you, I know.

Perhaps next year I will spend late summer living in the woods on nuts and berries.

OK so long as you leave some for me

the saddest post I've ever read.

I made bramble jelly this evening from blackberries picked at the weekend but it's not very tasty.

Re: sob

OK. Next year you must come blackberrying with me, and then we will make a pudding together and eat it too.
