The older I get, things and events just seem to become more mundane. Don't get as easily excited anymore. Age also provides wisdom.

Mastering a recipe, as there is nothing like the satisfaction of good home cooked food.

Doesn't matter if it's something complex like beef rendang, or simpler like pancakes.

...add in some fried slices of banana, or fried-off chopped apple with a few sultanas and a bit of cinnamon. Roll up 2-3 of those. A squeeze of chocolate sauce on top + a scoop of good vanilla ice cream on the side.

Damn I'm making myself happy just thinking about it :)

- Add a splash of rum to the filling before rolling them up, and I'd be positively thrilled :lol:

As I get older the appeal of both fades... to be replaced by what?

Although my ginger cat cheers me up.

Sorry, have I cracked that one before? :wink:



[I rather like the analogy of this forum and 'It aint half hot mum'... I think there is a lot of cross-over :)]. Just ponder for a moment who you would cast as whom ... hehe...
