Theme Thursday

I was. Today.

And meant to take a photo of my lunch to post here.
And entirely forgot.

My brain is also out to lunch.
Two sandwiches short of a picnic.

So this is a failed Theme Thursday post.

Though I can tell you that I had steak and ale pie for my lunch, with a pint of Old Speckled Hen.
Which looked pretty much like this pint

drunk at the same pub but some time ago.
And it might even have been lunch time, but I can't remember for sure.

But here, at least, is the latest on my now-wiggly little tadpoles.

I hope they wont become lunch for a passing newt....

Mmmm, that lunch has made me homesick. Steak and kidney would be my choice but steak and ale comes close.

Love the tads too.

Beer makes the best gravy! Your taddies are doing well! Probably enough to eventually jump out of the pont AND feed your starving newts!

Ronda Laveen said...

I love cooking with beer! Look how big the wigglers are getting. Wow!

Tom said...

btw, your TT link goes to a sepia saturday post...some people will be sore they've missed the wiggglers.

Out to lunch is a good thing. Your lunch sounded pretty good and if I drank some ale then I think that would be good too.

I loved the video with the little tadpoles and hope they grow to a ripe old age. But I also realize that chances are only one will survive the newt. I guess it is the circle of life.

God bless.

"Two sandwiches short of a picnic." Cute line.

Lunch in a pub is great. Make mine a ploughman's.
