Turtle Farts and Milf Porn

Sundays are an oasis in my week. Sleeping in, late leisurely breakfast at the ever awesome Johnny G's. They had opened their movable walls so we sat in the sun with a breeze, drinking our coffee and watching Cabbagetown's finest and weirdest. Then we went for a wee stroll down to Riverdale Farm. I wish I had discovered this place sooner. Its really really nice to be in the middle of downtown Toronto and walk 15 minutes from home and suddenly you're on a farm. There we harassed some cows, saw some fuzzy chicken bums, giant cocks, and watched turtle farts in the pond. We also may have been in some weird porn.. there was a sketchy young guy filming some chick pushing a baby carriage with nothing in it through the park. When we looked at them he pretended to be shooting the cows.... IM A PORNSTAR!

Anyway, now is The Time of C
leaning so that means the end of this blog. Here's some music and what I just made for lunch!

Almond Sauce for Rice
From "The New Book of Middle Eastern Food" by Claudia Roden
Serves 4

An exquisite specialty of Damascus in Syria to serve over 1 1/2 cups rice, cooked by any method.

1/2 cup ground almonds
2 1/2 cups chicken stock
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic

2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley (plus 2 more for garnish)

1/2 tsp sugar

Juice of one lemon
Pinch of turmeric

Mix the almonds and cold stock together in a saucepan. Bring to boil, season to taste, and add all the other ingredients. A pinch of turmeric may be used to give the sauce an attractive pale yellow colour. Simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 20-30 minutes, until the mixture thickens and the ingredients have blended into a rich, flavoursome sauce. Serve ladled over rice, with sprinkling of chopped parsley.

I added honey instead of sugar, TWO pinches of turmeric and some red pepper flakes. This was so tasty but it would be better with some vegetables and maybe chunks of chicken if you are into that kind of thing.

Sick Freak.
