I found a Jesus troll in the dalek

Garden Spud

We noticed that a potato plant had started growing out of an opening in our composter (or our dalek, as we prefer to call it).

When I dug it out, it had grown only one new potato, but it was probably the weirdest-looking spud I had ever seen.

It clearly had a face, as can be seen on the photo, but it didn’t look anything like Jesus, as you would have expected from all the media stories about people seeing him in their toast or Ikea’s toilet.

It most closely resembled a troll, so I must conclude it was a Jesus troll.

We had it for dinner yesterday.

Biryani to cry for

Phyllis loves biryani, but the only recipes I’ve got is for restaurant-style ones, so I was googling for some alternatives.

I haven’t tried this one (yet), but if the guy’s reaction to eating it is typical, I guess I could win some brownie points by cooking it…
