Snaggletooth has enjoyed some creamy apricot fromage frais, a crunchy Reese’s Nut Bar, a moist and spicy lightly fruited cake and some assorted chocolates recently. The cake was homemade by me, a basic sponge recipe with six tablespoons of mincemeat added. The chocolate assortment claimed to have world famous chocolates but I was unable to identify a single one of the chocolates contained therein, even after asking the people of Twitter and Instagram for help.
Recently Snaggletooth has chomped some fudge made in Belfast, a sugar coated ring doughnut, some spaghetti squash baked with olive oil and black pepper (fancy!) and some unicorn stars. He’s not claiming to have a balanced diet. He is claiming to have a diet that looks nice when photographed, like many young people today!
This week Snaggletooth has been chomping fruit rock (it makes him think of the seaside!), nibbling caramel shortcake, savouring a blackcurrant sundae and marvelling at my new culinary invention, the feta and olive potato waffle. The FO Waffle, as I’ve named it, is a fusion recipe taking something delicious from both working class and middle class foodstuffs.
This week Ol’ Snag has been eating crisps and desserts. He’s had fancy modern mango and passionfruit cheesecake (which didn’t exist when he was born in the 70s) and rice pudding with a big blob of strawberry jam (which has been delighting people since the 14th Century). He also had cheeseburger flavour crisps and sticky rib flavour crisps. Crunchtastic!
I’m surprised that my strange hobby of feeding things to Snaggletooth continues and I’m not even at the half way point yet (I’ve decided that I’m going to feed 666 things to Snaggletooth).
On June 25th Snaggletooth celebrated half Christmas with a Christmas pudding. It was a posh one and he enjoyed the candied clementine in the middle, however, he thinks calling it a hidden clementine is overdoing it, because he knew where it was, it was just unseen. Hopefully Heston will be calling this an unseen clementine Christmas pudding next year.
Snaggletooth has also recently enjoyed a custard slice. I used to always have a custard slice in Stewarts Garden Centre in Christchurch when on holiday with my grandparents. Some pineapple and a large sugary strawberries and cream flavour biscuit completes this set of four things Snaggletooth has eaten recently.
If there is anything you’d like to see Snaggletooth eat then let me know…
I’ve now fed 288 things to Snaggletooth! He’s had caramel digestives because 29th May is National Biscuit Day. He’s had fish and chips because 1st June is National Fish & Chip Day. He’s had apple, celery and raisin salad (it can’t be all chips and biscuits) and apple with natural yogurt and honey. Thanks bees!
