Charlie says:
Awe. That's really sweet Bearman. We all been missing you on here too! How's everything going??
Ori what a great friend you have! Any chance of the lime pickle recipe if you get time?? And how's the ankle?? X

Bearman says:
Yes - I got that very same job and with just the one interview. In my line of work, 3 interviews is more the norm.

Sadly I have to give 3 months notice so I will be here at my current place until the end of May. The great thing about the new job is that it is homebased - I will finally get a chance to get the amount of sleep my body tells me I really need, and I will save a fortune on car expense (currently I spend at least £4500 a year on fuel just on the daily work commute). I'm also really looking forward to being able to slob out at work - no more suits and ties - time I bought some new slippers for work ha ha ha.

Ori, Lime Pickle, aaaaahhhhh indeed. I'm in a minority off one in my house in liking it. I have two recipies, one is water based and the other is oil based. I like the oil based one for taste, but it tends to go mouldy quickly. What is your batch made with?

Yay congrats Bearman!! 3 months will fly by! New work slippers, robe and tea mug in order I reckon!

Lol I'll let you off. Have seen similar recipe in The Birthday Cake Book for smoked salmon cheesecake/cake. Not so convinced its original but looked yum nonetheless.
I made some cookie dough as thank you to the nursery staff so they can bake them with little ones this pm. Peanut butter and choc chip. Mmmm, saved a little for us of course! Hmm now where's my Ellie book????

I had an unexpected free morning too, everyone here has colds and flu and my botanist texted me he was down with a fever and wouldn't be coming. I'll miss the cash but hey, a break is a break. Had a cuppa and am reading Agatha Christie's bio. Lovely.

They have just finished doing up one of Agatha Christies Houses is so beautiful and you can stay in an apartment there. It isn't far up the river from Dartmouth and it is a very special place for Agatha holds the most personal items, when I visited they were still sorting through her belongings and the House was closed.

What do you think happened when she "Disappeared"? can see the house on line now Ori...the view! If only!

She talks about how she loves houses: buying, selling, renovating, seems to be a particularly British infection, this moving every time you get a house paid off. Americans buy something and sit tight. Never really understood the British obsession with "views" either...when I'm in my house I don't stand and stare out the window. But then I'm agoraphobic, I don't get out much...

Charlie says:
This is a long standing debate between me and hubby Ori! He thinks views important I dont really care so long as its not looking out onto someone else. I figure if he has time to stare out the window he's not busy enough

Aaaaahhh! I've discovered two new ways to cook dal (lentils). One from Nepal and the other from Maharashtra. Dal Bhat is pretty similar to kichiri, but different enough to make me want to try it.

Weather can't make up its mind whether to rain or not...had a lovely shop this AM in the Asian store, found lots of goodies, including mustard oil and frozen lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves. The Indian products are always so much cheaper than the Chinese ones! Finally got some gram (chickpea) flour so the onion bahji and squid thingie are on the way!!

Stu says:

My botanist student came back to class after a horrible cold and we had a nice session. I love how excited he gets about things! He says he is going to S Francisco this summer and has offered to find me a Totoro soft toy like the one I've been dreaming of...which the customs can kill you if you order it by mail.

Clem, I forgot to reply to this. Check out Indian Food Rocks blog and click on the sidebar where it says Lime Pickle Without Oil. That's the recipe I use. The methi (fenugreek) and julienne ginger make all the difference in the world.
