18 January,1818 George Palmer was born. Palmer, of Huntley and Palmer biscuit manufacturers, introduced the first biscuit tins.
Thank you, Mister Palmer, the world is a much better place for biscuit tins.
Yesterday, according to BBC Good Food (whom I follow on Twitter) was International Day of Italian Cuisines. I needed no encouragement to celebrate the day; we had another massive rainstorm, follwed by a persistent drizzle, and a rich bolognaise sauce with linguine was just the thing to stave off the Monday blues.
And today? More rain predicted; I think some sort of potato dish, with chourizo sausages. I may have good news in the next few hours and cause for celebration. Or solace may be needed and good old bangers and mash will do the trick.
Happy Tuesday, friends.
