RDP Sunday: Exit

I saddled my wheelchair or perhaps might be my scooter
No-one in the way so I do not need a hooter
And now for a check that nothing is forgot
My telephone and some money, I do not need a lot
Examine the battery, is there enough power
Look up to the sky, I do not need a shower
Now the door is open and I am on my way
I have to turn the corner, what a wonderful display
Full power is on the motor, I do not have to leg it
Ready to leave the estate by the normal tunnel of exit

RDP Sunday: Exit

RDP Friday: Frustration

I am not showing you one of my super mouthwatering home made pizzas. This evening it is a lazy evening and so we are all having take away pizzas, frozen from the store.

It is my new shelf on which this pizza is sitting that is my frustrating annoyance. It was something new from my online cookery company and usually they have good ideas. This time it is a baking tray with holes in it to allow the air to escape when using it and a promise of super crispy results. The crispy part is true, it really does do the job.

However as we all have different sized ovens they made it with expandable metal holders on the right and left side. You can just pull them out to fit the oven size. This would be ideal if only they would stay in the size you want them and not decide to lead their own life. It is a risky job to put it in the oven as the metal holders slip and slide and often the contents of the tray slide to the bottom of the oven, meaning a mini mess which you have to clean.

This company have a web site with all their new developments and this new super crispy bake oven tray was being shown, at least it was. They have an opportunity to make remarks on their web site and I saw that one of the ladies that bought it complained about the instability of size adjustment. Mr. Swiss said you can also write something and made a wonderful suggestion in German of course. I undersstood it very well, but writing German with all its various declinations is not my thing. Today I wanted to add my comment on the web site. I searched and searched but the advertisement for this wonder oven tray has disappeared. The company has disowned it and so it is now non-existant.

Frustration is just a small word for this, but who knows. One day my tray might have rarity value.

RDP Friday: Friustration

RDP Thursday: Footprint

I was at the store for half an hour. When I arrived home I noticed something squirming in a bowl of water I have outside for varius cats, hedgehogs and other animals that might take a walk. When I looked closer I saw that it was a rather mega sized bee.

I think it was on its last legs when I fished it out of the water and left to dry out. It is still resting on the ground and I am hoping that it will eventually fly again, but it does not look so good.

It is still outside and Mr. Swiss said it is moving. I do not think the footprints could be seen so well, but I can see two legs

RDP Wednesday: Zephr

A gentle breeze was blowing
A cloud was drifting past
But now the days have changed
How long will this calm last
There are mysteries in the air
Meaning no good for mankind
Spreading unknown dangers
Something new and undefined
This cloud will pass
Floating on its way
Our new cloud is invisible
We hope it will not stay

RDP Saturday: Illusion

This meat pie almost became an optical illusion, but it is now in the oven and should be ready for the evening food soon. I have made numerous such creations in my life as a housewife, but you can always improve the situation.

My cookery online web site were offering a new fantastic backing tray which makes everything much more crispy. You can see it in the picture with the various holes in it. The idea is that at the two sides you can pull it out to make it fit any oven I have now used it a few times and it does give a crispier result, as the hot air escapes through the holes.

I would be satisfied but when I put it in the oven the sides slip as it is not as stable as it should be and the whole thing lands on the bottom of the oven. I uttered many profanities and eventually gave up and put it on my normal oven baking tray, hoping the result will not be an optical illusion.

The second problem was the pastry I bought. It was already rolled out, I do not make pastry myself and on the plastic wrapping it said 2 flaky pastries for top and bottom which I wanted. It was even on a special offer, However I was surprised by the first illusion when I discovered the pastry was round and not rectangular as usual. My second problem was that it is vegan pastry. My store does not always have everything as I like it and it was all they had, but I did not realise that it was vegan. I know there are people that find vegan is the answer to their vegetarian dreams, but I am not vegetarian, never have been and probably never will be. Now I am stuck with a vegan pastry which I did not want.

Anyhow it is smelling OK in the kitchen and now I will get ready to serve it, vegan or not. I wonder how pastry can be vegan. Do they substitute the fat with something manmade? No idea, I am sure the cows will be happy that I am not using their milk for butter.

And here is the finished product.
