I’ve been working butter for the last few weeks. Out of tallow, out of lard, out of duck fat. Just butter.

Thank you neighbor for supplying us with the duck fat we need!

The Taste Of Orange

There isn’t a specific food I miss from America.  We eat meat and veg.  You can get or grow meat and veg here.  It’s nice.  But when our friend from America said, ” I’m coming over, do you want anything? ”  I thought of the children.  Our children have no idea what Kraft macaroni & CHEESE tastes like.  Kraft macaroni & CHEESE has a specific flavor that no other macaroni & cheese product has to offer.  Kraft macaroni & CHEESE is the flavor orange.

I haven’t eaten mac’n’cheese for soooo long, but I retained a kinestetic memory of how to make it.  It fell out of me like those days of having a quick bite before getting back for dress rehearsal.

Get the water boiling.

It’s so quick from here.  Kraft noodles boil faster than other noodles.  They are super noodles.

Powder more addictive than addictive illegal powder itself.

The squidge and sound of orange mixing.  You begin to salivate and panic, where’s my bowl?!  Where’s my fork?!  No wait, I’ll eat it out of the pan!

I want more.  Yes, Minty, you and the rest of children across America.  It’s is amazing stuff.  Thankfully, I can’t find it here in France.  No … don’t … zip it … ” They don’t sell it in France … “
