Tropical Tunes Thursday - Ukulele Lady by Kermit

My 'Tropical Tunes Thursday' took a few weeks hiatus but now I'm back. I found what I think is the last of the remotely tropical-themed Muppets songs (happy to be corrected) with 'Ukulele Lady'. I think you'll agree it's a sweet classic, Kermie-style.

Seven Great Aubergine Slash Eggplant Recipes

Eggplant, or aubergine here in NC, is cheap at the moment. I paid about 200f for four smallish sized ones this week, which is a bit more than $2 Aussie. Based on price, I think we'll be eating more aubergine in the next few weeks - it's cheaper than a lot of other vegies available here right now.

For me, eggplant are best with the tried and true companions - tomato and cheese. Come to think of it, most vegetables taste best with tomato and cheese! However there is *sigh* a time to put the stodge aside and enjoy lighter flavours I suppose - lucky I love a curry, then.

La Poule Couveuse

Last Thursday was a public holiday in NC, but out of the kindness of it's heart, my husband's company switched this to the Friday for it's employees to make it a long weekend instead. In actual fact, it seems that many Néo-Calédoniens have taken a four day weekend anyway, so quiet are the streets.
