Foodreference.com tells me that on this day in 1961 Earle Dickson died. He invented Band-Aids for his wife, who had frequent kitchen accidents, cutting or burning herself. He worked for Johnson & Johnson, who soon began manufacturing Band-Aids.
Good for him and lucky for Mrs Dickson.
Some weekend pics; asparagus with lavender and lime salt made for me by Tandy.

Raw grated beetroot with radishes (power food!).

A lemon cake for Sidey, waiting to be iced.

Very hard work being a dog …

Oh, and thanks to all for the good wishes; my dort achieved an A in the eisteddfod, I am incredibly proud of her.

      Briefly brought to boil in a pan of salted water, Amia, you don’t want them to go soft – the should still be cruncy – I like to dip them in mayo πŸ™‚

    I didn’t know bandaids had such a relatively recent history.

    I love beetrrot: when we go to our favourite fish restaurant I always ask for beetroot in my salad

      It has the most amazing list of health benefits, John πŸ™‚

    I just love fresh asparagus lightly grilled. (Why do some people still BOIL asparagus to death??)

    1. theonlycin says:

      No idea, I love it with a bit of peppery cream on pasta, such a wholesome dish πŸ™‚

  8. Leeswammes says:

    Lulabelle looks so restful! And congrats to your daughter. Interesting tidbit about the bandaids…now I have that ditty stuck in my head!

    1. theonlycin says:

      We must have had different ad campaigns, I don’t remember ours having a ditty; ours was something about Mom and Band Aids and a scraped knee πŸ™‚

  10. mairedubhtx says:

    The cake was a roaring success, not a crumb left!

    My apologies for giving you the lurgy!

    1. theonlycin says:

      You’re forgiven, Sally came and nursed me yesterday and I am oodles better πŸ™‚

  15. ceciliag says:

    Lovely. Asparagus is a wonderfood you know.. eat piles of it with hollandaise sauce! c

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s usually gobbled up before my sauce is ready πŸ™‚

      Paul, she is the most pampered dog in the world, but she has learned to perfect her ‘poor liddle ole me’ face πŸ™‚

  16. lifeinarecipe says:

    Housework and cooking can be dangerous. I recall many years ago having been advised by the nurses in the emergency room to pass on housework for a while after my third visit…two for stitches and one for a shoulder injury from too much vacuuming and floor washing…the food looks so yummy and your dog looks like he’s experiencing total bliss!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Goodness me, Cindy, you sound a right peril in the kitchen, LOL! πŸ™‚

  17. Thank you Mr Dickson, your bandaids have saved me on more occasions than I care to count.. πŸ™‚

    Your information fits me to a t this week, I burnt my finger on an oven rack, and I think I’ve already used a box of bandaids…IYour fresh veggies look wonderful and full of nutritional value too! Have a great week!

    1. theonlycin says:
