As you know Masterchef Australia is one of my favourite reality TV shows and this year it was its 10th season. I don’t know if you watch any reality TV shows but certainly with the cookery show there is always someone, out of the 24 contestants who is annoying!!! Either the way they come across or the way they relate to the other people or just existing!!!!!!!
This year it was this person, Michelle, who as her job describes herself as a “writer” when actually she just has a blog! SO for all of us with blogs we can now describe ourselves as writers! She never admitted to any problems in any of the episodes with any of the tasks and whatever they were cooking she had always done it already or always made that dish at home. To me she was the worst person to be on the show because she never learnt anything from the chefs or the events, as she had done it or seen it or eaten it all before and I believe she really wanted to be on the presenting side rather than a contestant. Fortunately she was eliminated early on, on Gordon Ramsey week and so we did not have to listen to any more of her wittering!!!
There is a new advert out with Emilia Clarke for a new perfume from Dolce & Gabbana where she is singing as above. I am amazed by her teeth!!! Whether it is the red lipstick but I cannot see how she can get that many teeth in her mouth, they are amazing!!!! Love her in Game of Thrones and I do hope when the final series airs next year it is a good ending, but having read all the books I don’t think George R.R. Martin will be that kind to us, as he loves killing off main characters!! In fact I am going to get all the books out and re-read them. There is so much more in the books than on the show, so if you like the show and have not read the books, do so, you will get a lot more from them.
As you know quite a few of the TV shows I watched every season have finished so I have been scouting around the channels looking for some new shows and I have found this. “Instinct” with the great Alan Cumming. It is about an ex-CIA Officer who has left to join the world of academia but is asked to consult by the New York Police when a murderer starts to use his book as a blue print for his murders. So far, we are on Episode 4, it looks quite good and I am hoping it will continue.
Finally back to this year’s Masterchef there was the incomparable Nigella Lawson Week. I just love her whole style and her recipes are amazing and you can actually read her cookery books and she is so funny. In fact she could write fiction. Her recipes are very good and you can change elements in them and they still work.
This is one of my favourite Nigella books and I have made lots of the dishes out of it.
DH and Youngest are both back tomorrow and I will be reversing Mondays schedule of collecting them from the airport and train station but not so early thank goodness. It has been quite strange just Treacle and I at home and when there is no one else at home I leave all the lights on downstairs! Silly I know but it makes me feel better!!!
I have been busy at my desk all day today with work and then called round to see a very good friend in the village whose birthday is on Thursday, but I could not see her on the day so I had a nice catch up with her over a cup of tea!!!
I hope you have all had a great Tuesday, tomorrow’s Wednesday and then it’s almost Friday!! DH is getting his tooth hopefully fixed then so he can eat properly. Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be okay but we are feeling the effects of high winds and it should be okay at the weekend but next week the temperature is due to fall a little making it more Autumn like.
Have a great Wednesday, Treacle will be here tomorrow.
Hugs, Susie xx
