An infomercial blog...for a change.

A learned weekend has been had.  As I completed household tasks I found myself information grazing. Not on purpose, dear reader.  I didn't set out to infogorge or put on mindweight.  Sometimes though  the mind can't help but snatch a bite.  I set out my knowledge crudités on a platter for you to help yourselves too.

Firstly I information grazed at the launderette.  Although we have a washing machine  I take large items to the an industrial washer.  This time I  picked up a magazine to browse and my mind grazed on the TV pages.  I nibbled at the review of  a New Zealand supernatural thriller on BBC3 called 'Tatua.' It is now set on record.

My second knowledge morsel was a bite of Saturday Kitchen as I cleaned the lounge.  I saw Nigella making coffee icecream.  In the UK it is pretty well impossible to get coffee icecream.  I know not why.  It is quite delicious and readily available in Europe.  Nigella used 4 ingredients, her kitchenaid and her freezer, and there is no churning necessary.  This is a recipe for me.  Google Nigella and coffee icecream. You will surely find this recipe.

Lastly I picked up a slice of another TV show recommendation.  A US blogger mentioned When calls the Heart and how she is hooked on it.  What was the chance of this unadvertised show being available in the UK?  Miraculously it is! Channel 5 USA is broadcasting series one and its available on 5 on Demand too.  I watched episode 1.  If you were an Anne of Green Gables  or Medicine Woman fan this is for you.  Its for me!

  1. Nothing wrong with a bit of information! Personally, I'd recommend old loo roll insides for growing beans from seed....

  2. Hello, and thanks for stopping by.
    I love coffee ice cream, especially as made by a chain called Cold Stone Creamery. Almost too rich, but who cares. Love your haircut, by the way.

  3. Hmmm...love hot coffee, but not cold. Do you have Tea flavored ice cream? We have iced tea here and it is horrid. In fact, if you order tea, it is always cold--intentionally. Philistines.

    1. Oh cold coffee has its place, as a frape in the summer, but coffee ice cream is something else. It really is gorgeous. No we don't have tea ice cream, um, not sure I'd want it:) Iced tea is available in Europe. Very sweet cold drink. We get it in cans, Liptons. It is not at all similar to nice warming cup of PG .

  4. When Calls the Heart is showing here on the Hallmark Channel. I think my wife has watched it, but I haven't seen an episode. Hallmark always shows movies that end happily and don't have any bad things in them, which is why it appeals to my wife so much.

    1. We have Hallmark here too. This programme is on our Channel 5 though. I agree Hallmark is a bit slushy. We have Sci-fy and many other US channels in the UK.

  6. Coffee flavoured ice cream. Yummy! Not much for watching television, although I do like the occasional movie.
