No trains, sandwiches and cardamom

A couple of things -- Tim over at Heropress posted his own beautiful things last week. He includes being a beautiful thing in the list, which is all a bit meta. It's lucky I didn't list his post as a beautiful thing or this could have gone on forever.

Jewellery company Waves of Gratitude are asking people to nominate someone who expresses their gratitude with style. I've just nominated one of my favourite 3BT bloggers, and I hope others will do the same -- check out the list on the left.

1. According to Twitter, the trains are all wrong, so Nick stays at home, safe and warm with me.

2. To have my lunchtime sandwiches made for me.

3. Absentmindedly I crunch a cardomom seed while cooking. Its oily, aromatic flavour goes right to the back of my throat. Later, when I am grinding a few more of the black seeds, I notice that they are white as flour inside.


  1. seems as everyone is cooking in this bad weather!

  2. Super duper coleslaw.

    Crushed cardommom seeds and finely grated ginger are wonderful in home made coleslaw, preferably with red as well as white cabbage, carrots, apples, raisins sunflower seeds, maybe some pine kernels and gomasio (ground up toasted sesame seeds and seasalt)and anything else you think suitable to throw in! A meal in itself, especially if you add some of your favourite nuts.
