Squeezing

In Uncategorized on January 19, 2012 at 1:54 pm

It wasn’t a resolution.

It was more an acknowledgement of what’s needed during the dog days of January & February in Melbourne town.

I decided to yield to what I have long known.

The best way to quench my thirst was to invest in limes, a squeezing implement and keep the ice supplies at optimum.

And so it has come to pass.

10 limes for $4 at the Vic Markets and a $6 squeezing thing which looks like an instrument of torture for those of a non-citric bent.

And the word is “YUM”.

As one who has been known to enjoy a crisp Pinot or a fruity Sav Blanc, I must say that a mouthful of diluted freshly squeezed lime juice diluted with iced water and topped up by special ice cubes is a delight.

The ice, by the way, comes from a tray, given to me by the gorgeous Tim Harrison, during TFC’s Christmas Eve edition.

It’s now being given a real work out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yet again, the simple pleasures win.

And that’s how it is as I switch off the PC, darken the TV set & its connected DVD boxed set-ery and reach for a book and a nice, long, cool drink.
