Advertising works

I am a bit of a cricket tragic. I usually prefer to listen to the commentary on ABC radio but sometimes if I am sewing or have something to keep my hands busy I will sit down and watch it. I am also a traditionalist so I like the test matches most but last night I did watch a little of the limited ver match. The advertising this year for the major sponsor really did work its magic on me. It did make me want a chicken burger.

I didn't succumb fully to the lure of the ads. I made my own. I even felt adventurous enough to make my own mayonnaise. Homemade burgers were given the thumbs up by the four of us but only the adults enjoyed the homemade mayonnaise. The verdict from the youngsters was that it was too eggy. Not so, it only had one lonely egg yolk in the whole mix. It was very yellow though and quite unctious.

Although I am missing my boy, I have had such a great day. Baking, bike riding and working here at home on the farm.

Aren't homemade burgers just the best? They lack the greasiness of store bought ones - so much better for you, knowing what is in them.
Unctious - I believe Maggie Beer uses this word quite a bit so I knew just what you meant when you said it!

Cheers - Joolz

Mmmm, that looks better than any ad on tv. I can see us having that for dinner tonight.

Tracy, I love my cricket too. I have a once-a-year date for the first day of the Sydney Test with a friend from school days. The rest of the summer the ABC commentary provides the soundtrack to my life! My husband merely tolerates it, hee hee. Those burgers look tops too.
