self-portrait, haloumi, news

Posted by Picasa  Multiple images of the photographer with the help of a snow-covered car in The High Street.

One of our regular stand byes  in the fridge is the  hard, sheep's milk cheese called haloumi which comes from Cyprus. You fry slices of it until they are a crisp and mottled brown on the outside, while remaining soft and pliable inside. Today, as one of our guests is on the point of leaving, we eat  haloumi with a winter salad of finely sliced roots, iceberg lettuce, green beans and tomatoes,a relief after Christmas excess.

Me to elderly neighbour: Happy New Year
Neighbour: Happy New Year and to your good lady. But you had better not look at the news.

Happy New you to you.
Ah, Haloumi. We call it squeeky cheese in this household. It 'squeeks' as you chew!

Oh, I really must try some Haloumi since I do love cheese. So many interesting foods still to try in this lifetime.
