Toasted Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

You will need:
2 slices large Hovis Rich and Roasted Seed Sensations Sliced Loaf;
Whole Earth Smooth Peanut Butter;
1 medium banana (ripe).

Toast the bread slices and apply margarine to them both.
You can use dairy free margarine such as Pure or Vitalite.
Spread peanut butter thickly on one side.
Slice the banana and place it on top of the peanut butter, it should be covered thickly with banana.
Place the first slice of toast on top of the one with the peanut butter and banana.
Squash it down and then cut the sandwich into 2 halves.
Place them on a microwaveable plate and microwave on full power for 3 seconds, this will melt the peanut butter and give the banana a caramelised effect.
Wait a minute or 2 to let the sandwich cool so the filling does not burn your mouth.
Now you can enjoy it!


I decided to give the rest of my cassettes to the charity shop.
Sisters of Mercy: Some Girls Wander by Mistake;
Patti Smith: Horses;
Kraftwerk: The Mix;
Kraftwerk: Radioactivity

Cassettes originally purchased from Cob Records in Bangor, some time in the 1980's.

Favorite scambled tofu

At the moment this is my favourite dish.
It consists of plain tofu sauteed in sesame oil, with pak choi, celery, mixed peppers, sweetcorn, brown rice, turmeric and marigold vegetable bouillion. The brown rice is cooked separately and added at the end.

It's a bit like scrambled eggs. The boullion gives extra flavour, the turmeric gives the tofu and rice a yellow colour.


We had a drive over towards Cumbria, Scottish Borders and Keilder.

Gnome meditates under juniper tree

I noticed this gnome sitting under a small juniper bush in a garden on St. Thomas's Crescent.
Nearby on St. Thomas Street a demolition is under way of old university buildings.

Time Exchanging

Today I had 2 exchanges, Julia came to help work on my bathroom cupboard and get some information, and Katarina and Fay moved my cooker ad cleaned behind it. Thanks to all, and the info about damp is lower down the page.

Corporation Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4

Looking down Corporation Street, NE4, we can see the cleared site of the Newcastle Brewery behind the green fence, the Brewery office building still standing, and the roof of the People's Kitchen. A poster board is on the left showing the advert for Science City.
St James's Park Stadium in the background.
