Word of the day


I often have a word of the day.  Not an official one, this is not a challenging quest I set myself, it is more of a ‘that word is stuck in my brain’ sort of day.
The other day word stuck in my head was exotic.  It started with a discussion about meatloaf (food not ageing rock star/actor beloved of Rocky Horror and Waynes World).  Meatloaf and recipes thereof had been high on my agenda for a couple of days and I had finally left one baking in the slow cooker for the day.  A key ingredient was ketchup, not something I cook with often.  This led to a discussion about other ketchup related recipes which led in turn to ‘sweet and sour’ which inevitably led to pineapple as I don’t eat sweet and sour food as I don’t like pineapple.  From there we rambled on into pizzas as I wondered whether Hawaiian pizza was still a thing; apparently it is – and it is made exotic by the addition of pineapple.  So there you have it, I was set for a day of ‘exotic’.
and it made be briefly think about exotic planting
and at the end of the day I went home and had very non-exotic meatloaf
oh - and please, when reading this - you have to pronounce 'exotic' as Waynetta does.

  1. But, I don't know anything about Waynetta. I suppose I will just have to continue with the usual stuff that goes round and round my head, nothing as deep as words, just songs from the 60s that wont budge, how shallow am I.

  2. Waynetta is from Harry Enfields 1990s comedy programme - she was married to Wayne and had 2 children Frogmella and Spudulika it's bounds to be on YouTube somewhere. I usually have a song stuck in my head too - often ones I don't even like :-)
