In Other News – 01 September 2015

1 min read


Today is the first day of spring. Instead of wondering where the year went, let’s talk about tasty spring food, like spring rolls. Instead of the usual Chinese or Thai variants that, while delicious, are typically heavy and greasy, I chose to celebrate the lighter and more spring appropriate Vietnamese version. Made with rice paper and typically served with a peanut sauce, the flavors are nuanced and fresh, offering a crisp and refreshing start to the meal.

      Geoff will probably die horrible painful death if he ever eats real man food.

    Let one into my home? I’m suspicious when one even talks to me in a normal tone of voice.

    That food looks good! Why did I not try that while I was there!?

    Now that winter is over, I’m really looking forward to mosquito filled rooms, sweating myself to sleep, PC fans at max speeds and of course the hordes of tourists!… yay

    That honest trailer just confirms what I have always known… Disney infinity is not a game, it is a collectible series of toys! Which is also fine, just not for me.

        Incidentally, only marginally more expensive. R150 for a stupid tiny thing, or R190 for a stupid almost as tiny thing.

    I must taste this!

    Looking at previous ION Tasty Tuesday, there is actually no way to tell this site is even in Africa. Asia maybe…
