Neil Gits Strudel

30th December 2022
Posted by Neil Matthew

At this time of year we find ourselves eating all sorts of things to mark the season, some of which we’ll never consume again until next December … like mince pies ! Occasionally you can find yourself enjoying something during a meal which you can’t actually recall having ever tried before – and so it was for me this year with Apple Strudel. Somebody had mentioned it in passing during conversation, so I looked it up online when I got home and thought “that looks rather nice” ! I slipped one on my shopping list and after a couple of minor issues, like working out how much one portion should be and then how to cut it into two or maybe three pieces, having found it to be packaged frozen, I served it up and thoroughly enjoyed it ! What do you know ? 60 years old and still discovering new stuff to eat !

We are almost back in our usual routines now, just the New Year weekend to survive now, and that means that there will be no ‘Repeat Play’ of the show on Gateway this Saturday …. but don’t forget you can hear any of my shows from the last 28 days via “Listen Again” . Just search out the “Cool Soul” scetion and match up the dates with your diary for anything you may have missed out on recently. I am back LIVE on Monday at 7pm, even if it is yet another public holiday ! Here’s last week’s playlist …
