Because i was nursing a fever, stayed home to recuperate before the trip to that sub-continent. Unfortunately, there was nothing in the fridge but Bob’s Mill’s 7 Grain Pancake and Waffle Whole Grain Mix, a surprisingly un-expired carton of milk, and several bottles of half-finished jam (and alcohol). The pancake mix fared well without the addition of eggs, imbued with a light citrus fragrance from substitution of plain oil with Nudo’s Stone Ground Olive Oil with Mandarins.

Creme de Cassis and Pinot Noir Jam, Carpenter & Cook, Lorong KilatCarpenter & Cook‘s Creme de Cassis & Pinot Noir jam beat out competition from The Hawkshead Relish Company‘s Superberry Jam (blueberries, blackcurrants, cranberries, goji berries and pomegranate. available at Cut The Mustard, Greenwood) and Daylesford Organic Damson Jam (very sweet, strange agar-agar-like texture) and Daylesford Organic Blackcurrant Jam (winner of the 2011 Great Taste Awards. available at ThreeSixty Marketplace, ION Orchard), to be the best accompaniment to the rather rough-looking carbs. Not on par with the Rosol – Nadal upset at Wimbledon or the Spanish tika-taka fluidity that won them the Euro 2012 finals, but we take all the faint sickbed excitement we can get.
