11 May

london 11.10am monday 11C sunny 2020

its sunny out there, but quite windy, so i was out to do my tesco shopping to the superstore in vauxhall. the wind makes it so i get grit in my eyes.

there was no queue at the supermarket to get in, thank goodness, so i shall remember that fact, and to do my shopping on mondays at about 10am.

the temperature was supposed to drop today, but it is very sunny, so that even though it is only 11c, it feels warmer inside the flat. and outside it too inspite of the wind.

all this feeling of cold or warmth is relative really. i feel warm now because i am sitting in the sun in my flat, sheltered from the wind. but even when i was outside and get the full force of the wind on me, i was wrapped up rather warm in my hoodie, so did not feel it much.

i got lots of vegetables,(savoy cabbage, sweetheartcabbage, celery,chilli, tomatoes) and two 1kg packs of chicken thighs, £1.88/kg are a good buy. i will stir fry the chicken in vegetables. it is the quickest and cheapest way of cooking chicken, or any meat for that matter. instead of roasting them, which is the most expensive way, because it uses so much electricity.

i wonder if the chinese invented stir fry. if so, it just confirms to me how very clever the chinese are. i think it is the most useful invention , and might rate as good as the invention of the wheel.

(i think the single most important invention or discovery is human beings discovering fire and how to make it.)

  i think no other race or cuisine has stir fry. the regional cuisines in asia dont count as they are copied from the chinese and/or are a mixture of local and chinese influence which over time becomes   a distinct cuisine to call their own.

i would have thought even if the other cuisines did not invent stir fry first, surely they must have learnt about it, and adopt it, as it is such a useful way of cooking. you would think that wont you? yet if u look at the recipes of french cuisine, or any cuisine away from the region around china,  there are no stir fry dishes.

today uk moved a bit out of lockdown, with people allowed unlimited exercises, and sunbathing outdoors. i think it sensible, unlike the so strict lockdowns in europe. and i am glad we dont have to fill out a form and carry it with us everytime we go out, to show to any busybody wanting to know if we have a good reason for going out. i like that, the way the uk do it. some people might criticise and say uk has not done enough quickly , but i think they have got the balance right. and now i think they should let businesses open and bring commerce back, let shops open and trade begin.
