Lagom Food. Lagom Philosophy.

Perfectly Normal Breakfast, of Perfectly Normal Beast.

Strange what looks like a fine breakfast now…buttered cold  roast free range pork with silverbeet, lemon and pepper.  Before Elsie Hogfat taught me her way of eating, this breakfast would look more like lunch, and a lunch that was missing something (bread, of course) at that.  Now it looks like a Perfectly Normal Breakfast.

Douglas Adams described in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, a species of beast that “migrate across the Anhondo Plain on Lamuella twice a year (one direction in the spring then back again in the autumn).  The migration takes about 8 to 9 days during which time they form a solid mass. They appear from thin air at one end of the plain then disappear again at the other. They are called Perfectly Normal Beasts because naming them normalizes the event of their migration and keeps people from worrying about its cause”.

Quirkily enough, the traditional Lumuellan diet of Perfectly Normal Beast served plain is altered forever by the arrival of The Sandwich Maker…. could this be an allegory?
