Now for some weird Britishish food. Vegemite, Marmite, and Bovril. Honestly, I can't really taste the difference between Vegemite and Marmite, but both are full of b12 goodness. The Bovril is the drink version. It's kind of like Marmite bullion. Surprisingly tasty. Gluten-free toast with "mite." Vegemite on the left; Marmite on the right. The consistency is a little different, and I'm sure there's some subtle taste difference, but I can't tell them apart. It may look like chocolate nutella or something, but I assure you this salty, yeasty topping does not resemble chocolate in taste. The Bread is Ener G gluten free, dairy free bread. It has a shelf life of about 6 months. I would have used it earlier, but I was kind of fascinated to see how long it would last. The special packaging is the "preservative" and you don't have to keep it in the freezer like other gluten free breads I've seen. The packaging got puffier the longer it sat around. For gluten-free bread, this isn't half bad. It tastes a little healthy, but otherwise is good. Here's some snowy photos of my neighborhood.Big tree that decided to lose a few branches in my yard.This is the footbridge I take on my walk to the train. It's much scarier at night when you think the Headless Horseman might be galloping up behind you. I live in Sleepy Hollow, so don't think that couldn't happen. OK, Headless Horseman aside, here's some actual danger. Just past the bridge there was a downed tree fallen on a power line completely blocking the road for anyone downhill from it. I just kind of walked around it to get home. The snow was pretty, but knocked out my cable for a couple of days. Cable is back on now, so I've got to go catch up on some Buffy I DVRed.
Buffy is on Logo -they're at the beginning of season 3. Apparently it's on MTV also. Buffy season 8 volume 6 comic is out next month. Even if comics aren't your medium of choice, if you're a Buffy fan, I highly recommend checking them out. It starts where the show ends. My mom is reading them now.*For anyone who didn't live through the 80's, the title "He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich" is part of the lyrics to "Down Under" by Men at Work. I had no idea what a Vegemite sandwich was until many years later. I once named our corporate volleyball team "Vegemite Slamwich." It won an award.
