New Year's Food
New Year's Day went without much hitch, barring a sub-optimal head of cabbage:
Good corned beef (the flash was unkind to it), excellent vegetables otherwise. I don't know what was up with the cabbage; I found it acrid. Too long in the tooth? Possible. And here I was saving back a wedge to have some to put on a hamburger. (The old Penguin Point drive-ins did that instead of lettuce and if you ask me, it's far superior; on the other hand, my lineage possesses a fondness for the brassicas that would do credit to a Pratchett character)
