I love studying...

So much so that I'm blogging...instead of studying...it can wait. I have till Tuesday.

This story starts a week or two ago when we decided as a flat to clean out the freezer. We had no room so we took out everything that isn't ours and put that in a communial bag and then took out just as much ice. There's so much room now...anyhow back to the story! Buried in the ice we found a leg of lamb. Well we presumed lamb from the NZ Lamb stamp on the side. A nice big one that Si's mum had given him. So last sunday me and Moira cooked the best roast dinner. Think roast lamb, potatoes, parsnip, yams, carrots, pumpkin and kumara. With real gravy (Mum I managed to remember the recipe). Then apple crumble with custard and ice cream to finish. Was so good. But there was one thing...the lamb was a random pink colour. We decided it was smoked lamb. Was still good though a little strong tasting. Then the story gets interesting...Si's mum rings...he's like oh we had the roast lamb and it was awesome...her reply? "I gave you silverside...not lamb". Hmmm...that explains the colour! But still...was very nice!

Better study...actually I'm going to have lunch and then colour my hair and then go watch the rugby and maybe if I'm lucky I'll study after that.

ROAST SILVERSIDE WITH GRAVY!! Very original Jo. It doesn't sound a whole lot better than decomposing gumboot but I will take your word that it is. :)
At least you cook! I am so glad about that.

He Jo it must run in the family, I also have done a very nice silverside roast, and can verify that it was very yummy, strange colour though, for a roast!!!

so what colour is your hair going to be? i recently got a terrible hair cut.

Jo said...

Yeah it was still nice. just a strong meat.

my hair is just dark brown.

andrew brown said...

so it's dark brown, which is your natural colour? but what colour is it going to be? or have you already dyed it and now it's dark brown, in which case what colour was it?

Jo said...

Brown, Brown, Brown. that answer your questions?

ElizabethB said...

It must be many years since any of us saw your natural colour!

andrew brown said...

so your natural colour is brown, it is/was brown before dying, and since dying has become brown.

dare i ask if they are different shades?

Jo said...

If they were all the same shade why would I be colouring my hair?
