Found some nice grub(s) on the drainer today, the women will enjoy these. Apparently 1,000bht/Kg.

I get my grubs for half of that but I digress.

was at the local makro and found zucchini (courgettes), celery, nice bell peppers (capsicums) and nice lemons...but no avocados also at the big tesco where I found some nice haas a couple of months ago...goin' to Hanoi next week and now I'm afraid that avocados are out of season...avocados and fresh baguettes are a highlight of any visit to VN

 

go to the supermarket and get 2 kilos of fruit and then stop at the bakery for some fresh bread and then later the hotel room cleaners would find me passed out naked on the bed from an avocado and fresh baguette OD...'mistuh, mistuh, you all right mistuh? (shaking me gently to see if I was dead)' 'eh?! who are you and whaddaya doin' here? where's my avocados???!!!'...

 

just made a stew with the courgettes, capsicum, potatoes, fresh toms and garlic and onions, out of this world using 'italian spices" (oregano, thyme, rosemary but no basil or marjoram) hadta make do with some toasted farmhouse slices rather than a nice crusty loaf but ye can't have everything I reckon...

 

anyone been to VN recently and seen any avocados in the supermarket? usually at the end of an aisle in a large bin in the vegetable section...

A few years ago, April in Dalat, the market showed off the most beautiful veggies, all kinds, and at least three avocado types. Would love  to go again.

Last week I realized that I had forgot to mail in my 90 day report and it was the 7th day past due so I drove the 100 kilometers to Nakhon Sawan to avoid the 2000 baht fine.  I stopped in Makro and they had Hass avocados at 69 baht each so I bought a couple.  I also found the Miso, not with the noodles in the refrigerator section but with the big packages of salad dressing, also refrigerated.

gotta find that miso where ye can geddit...I was at makro once and couldn't find the miso, got the step daughter involved who got the store assistant involved...and then she shifted a bag of salad cream aside to reveal the bags of miso behind and then I shouted 'arrrghhh!!!' and the store assistant started laughing uncontrollably 'dese falangs are such foolish creatures...' the step daughter had seen it all before and was exasperated...

 

but at least I got my miso...been drinkin' all night and a bowl of miso soup right now would really hit the spot...

steamed leeches are a little known issan delicacy...mash up and spread on toast and make a sarnie with the scotch eggs, in true 'fusion cuisine' fashion...

 

or, could be brown sauce configured to look like leeches...dem folks in the UK like to put brown sauce on most things...
