Well done, Freya, for correctly spotting that Goon was snacking on green beans dipped in honey. They were actually unwashed raw green beans that he was supposed to be rinsing and chopping for me so I could make a garlicky bean accompaniment to some rabbit (see post below).

The thing is, if anything edible is left out, Goon will eat it. If two edible things are left out, Goon will eat them together. I made the mistake of getting him to chop beans next to a pot of honey and the inevitable happened.

I’m intrigued by Trig’s suggestion of anchovies in marmalade. Maybe I’ll leave those together on the worksurface and see what happens.


  1. Gosh darn it! I was soooo close!

  2. Yes, true, you were! Goon would never dip a green chilli in anything though. He HATES chilli!

  3. I left a comment and the web ate it!

    I wanted to say that the dinner with sloe gin looks really good. I have odd memories of sloe gin as a neighbour once gave me some of her homemade stuff (and other people) and they all admitted to hating it whereas I was polite and said I liked it.., whereupon she gave me a whole bottle… and it was v nasty.

    I like rabbit. I’m quite new to rabbit - had it once in France and was morally outraged (I was only 20 at the time…) but in the last 2 years, I’ve been gobbling rabbit up! I guess I’ve grown up.

    Oh and the final thing I wrote before the Internet swallowed it was thank you for the meme. I’ve never been tagged before and I am disproportionately excited.

  4. Hmmmm….odd combination. And I am the queen of odd combos (peanut butter and green olive sandwich anyone) so I suppose that says a lot.
