That works too.

I don't suppose that you make a wheel when eating porridge too?

You were right not to suppose but tell me about it and I'll give it a try.

Fairly thick porridge in a wide shallow dish. Small spoon and scoop one side to the other and eat. Then do the same across the line. If it's the right consistency it won't fill in what you scooped.

Then do two more across the angles but on the fourth one, don't eat, put the dollop in the middle so you have spokes and hub.

Admire work, then eat the rest.

It has possibilities but I'm more in favour of eating around the edge making the circle smaller

To save time at work a can of Moroccan style chick-pea soup from a dollar store, ( Just 3 minutes in the microwave! ) with a little Tabasco. It's good, and I'm buying more.

Chick-pea again - good taste prevents cross-posting in the Trump thread.
It's sideways unless I open in new tab.

I'm going to have a late lunch of kippers and toast and whisky. Kippers aren't only for breakfast.

Spicy bbq beef with bok choy and mushrooms and onions, rice and kimchi. I use bbq sauce, hoisin, and gochujang paste, soy sauce, a pinch of crushed chillies and tiny bit of 5 spice powder. You can omit the salt and pepper in this one.

Ramen noodles with added mushroom, celery, grated carrot and spring onion, garlic, tons of ginger, tons of chili and some sesame oil. Needs kimchi, haven't been to the nearest Asian store for a while, and let's face it, northwestern Germany ain't no kimchi haven.
