This post is dedicated to Tilly Bud, who gets the most interesting spam, of which I have always been slightly envious. Mine tends to be all too predictable; Viagra punters, dating-for-over-50s, ‘how to pump your tyres’ (???) and so on … but this morning I got a piece of spam that is pure poetry, quite metaphysically. Really.
An absorbing communicating is worth comment. I conceive that you should indite more on this content, it mightiness not be a sacred dominate but generally group are not sufficiency to communicate on such topics. To the succeeding. Cheers like your DOUBLE-ARSES, BUMS AND BUTTOCKS The only Cin.”
Cheers indeed.

If Tilly came to visit me, I’d treat her to a traditional South African braai, with lots of meat and not a single one of her much-loathed enemy; the Brussels sprout. Steak and ribs, with a luscious, chunky mushroom sauce.

Perhaps that’s too predictable and I should do something a bit fancier for Tilly? Pork rib and mushroom wontons …

Or pork ravioli in a paprika sauce?

I’m sure we’d enjoy the occasion, whatever the dish. And I know we’d enjoy a glass of pink wine under a pink African sky … and a giggle about our spam.

And dessert? Oh, it’s not hard to solve that one …

But this is not Tilly’s cake, it’s for the shampoo girls at work. Tilly’s cake would have Maltesers …

    hehe, i don’t even try to decipher my spam mostly. and its often about making money (for them) out of my blog.

    I’ll bring pink bubbles and maltesers

    1. theonlycin says:

      I find spammers quite mystifying, what could possibly be in it for them?

      1. SidevieW says:

        i also wonder thast rather too often for my comfort

      2. theonlycin says:

        And they don’t stop, even when you block them :O

  2. nrhatch says:

    That spammer sounds like my not-so-secret-disadmirer when she waxes philosophical. 🙂

    That cake looks FAB!!!

    1. theonlycin says:

      You disadmirer has, mercifully, left me of her party list of late 😉

    2. nrhatch says:

      She has dissipated into the nether regions of cyber space. {{POOF}}

      I got a good one this morning:

      We appreciate you the actual practical review. Myself and also my neighbor have been just preparing to be diligent about this. I am extremely grateful to find out such great info getting shared readily on the market.

      Tis the season to be . . . preparing to be diligent! 😆

      1. theonlycin says:

        Diligent? Who wants to be that? Let’s be dilly-gals instead? 😉

  3. slpmartin says:

    Let’s not talk about the menu for Tilly if she comes there…she’s already been there…but what would the menu look like if I came? Sorry Tilly…but I’m expecting very few Christmas gifts..( you know that ‘naught or nice thing) a fantasy menu may be all I get. 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      Come right up, Charlie, watch this space 🙂

  4. Audi Palomar says:

    Well, my SPAM comes from a tin can so it’s nothing compared to this. Haha 😀 That ravioli looks delicious!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Hahaha, Audi, Spam and tin can … you are quite the poet 🙂

  5. Sue Green says:

    I feel slightly miffed, I don’t seem to get spam.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Poor thing, I’ll see what I can do 😉

      1. SidevieW says:

        shall we all send her incomprehensible spam?

  6. Yvette says:

    I’ve never liked Spam, nor Spam….those pork ravioli look perfect and that pink African sky!! x

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’m quite in love with Johannesburg at the moment, Yvette 🙂

  7. leigh says:

    1. theonlycin says:

      You’ve convinced me to get a pasta maker next year 🙂

  10. Sparkle says:

    Yummy food Cin, esp the wantons. I saw the chinese restaurant that you blogged about at Ghandi square and I must pay them a visit soon.
    The shampooo girls are fortunate! 😉

    1. theonlycin says:

      Lucky Moo make the BEST food, Sparky, go there as soon as you can 🙂

  11. dearrosie says:

    That really is the funniest spam comment I’ve seen.
    I included brussel sprouts with my roasted vegetables tonight and they are really tasty. Tell Tilly to try roasting them in olive oil…

    1. theonlycin says:

      I can’t tell Tilly that, Rosie, she’ll slap me with a bag of Maltesers!

      1. SidevieW says:

        i will too. they are really nasty littkle things, they smell like wet dog

      2. theonlycin says:

        I’m not averse to that smell 😉

  12. earlybird says:

    What a great selection of dishes to choose from! Glad to see you’re putting those wonton wrappers to good use!

    I agree with Sidey about brussels sprouts…

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’m thinking brussels sprout-stuffed wontons 😉

  13. Brenda says:

    Looking at the pics makes me drool too, too much. 🙂

  14. My mond water nou behoorlik!!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Klim op jou fiets en kom kuier!

  15. Hotly Spiced says:

    I get ridiculous spam that never makes sense because it’s never written by anyone from the English speaking world. What a great menu! I just love the look of that meal. Congrats there. I would love those wontons and that dessert looks delicious.

  16. nursemyra says:

    love that night sky

  17. Leeswammes says:

    Lucky Tilly, a whole menu for her! I hope she isn’t secretly a vegetarian!

    1. Tilly Bud says:

      I’m really not! An out and out carnivore, that’s me! But lucky, yes 🙂

      Cindy, I’m touched and honoured by your post and your thoughtful menu. If I ever get back to South Africa, you’ll be my first stop. A real SA braai…how I miss them 😦

      Not to be a party pooper, I just need to point something out – it’s mushrooms I dislike and brussels sprouts I LOVE; I will eat them with almost anything. I only mention it so you don’t go to a lot of trouble, only for me to eat a few polite mouthfuls and then embarrass us both by getting drunk on pink champagne and an empty stomach.

      I think you’ve found a great new meme – fantasy menus for your regular readers. I can’t wait to read the next one.

      Thank you again; I love it!

      1. theonlycin says:

        You are most welcome, at least I remembered not to include cauliflower 😉

    2. theonlycin says:

      I doubt it, Judith 🙂

  18. Tilly Bud says:

    PS I think your spam has definitely out-spammed my spam. Real laugh out loud stuff 😀

    1. theonlycin says:

      Made me smile too 🙂

  19. I really should take more note of the spam I receive – I might also get something good like you.
    🙂 Mandy

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s inspirational, if nothing else, Mandy 🙂

  20. tilly is indead blessed, just to know the “what if’s” like this. the shampoo girls for the moment, r more so. hugs

    1. theonlycin says:

      The shampoo girls were very chuffed, Doc 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yep, very wonderful, Gigi 🙂

  21. ceciliag says:

  22. I can’t wait to see the spam you get on your haemorrhoids. 🙂

    Mouthwatering photos, as always Cindy!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Oh dear, something to look forward to, Celia 😉

  23. Ruth says:

    Ooh! Lucky shampoo girls! And spamwise, you got a good one – ball’s back in Tilly’s court… {raises glass to Tilly & Cin}

  24. Jamie Dedes says:

    After I picked myself off the floor, I had to share that on FB. Priceless.

    Love the photo of the night sky, Cindy. Good catch.

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. Hugs! 😉

    1. theonlycin says:

      Return hugs, Jamie 🙂

  25. adeeyoyo says:

    My spam used to consist of a couple of lines, but it is getting longer and longer. What a waste of someone’s time! And sometimes the same words from a totally different address which leads me to wonder if there’s a spam bank!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Spam bank … *splurt* bwahahahaha!

  26. bluebee says:

    “How to pump your tires”? Whoa, safari! Clearly, there’s some sort of sublimal messaging going on in your blog.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Must be, bluebee 😉

  27. Fantastic spam, superlative blogger. Tilly is a must-stop-by for me every day. we all need a belly laugh and they’re two a penny at her site. What a gorgeous menu for a special person.

    I have cake envy.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Have a slice, Kate, go for it 🙂

  28. colonialist says:

    This reminds me of one of my favourite bits of Chinglish involving a toy to be inserted in water – ‘… for feeling with joy in observance of the pleasure of the swellings …’

    I still quite like bully beef!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Oh my, that is priceless, Col 😉

  29. Tammy says:

    SO funny to be jealous of spam Cindy. Those raviolis are flipping amazing and would cause me to buy a plane ticket just to share.

    1. theonlycin says:

      What’s stopping you, Tammy? 🙂

  30. johnlmalone says:

    that spam is the most garbled piece of English I’ve come across; whoever wrote it should go back to grade school English

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s beautifully garbled 😀

  31. The Hook says:

    Your spam post was delicious! Thanks!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Y’re welcome, Hookie 🙂

  32. Cindy, I just always enjoy your posts!! The pancetta looks yummy…but I especially love the wantons!!
