My Tomatoes and Milk post inspired worldwide interest and a very handy recipe from Susan in Philadelphia. While mulling over this turn of events, I happened upon a Dave Barry post. This revealed that Donald Trump's new book is called Think Big and Kick Ass: In Business and in Life. Right, I thought, it's time to TB and KA, I shall try a recipe of the day on Thought Experiments. Unfortunately, being an instinctive, neo-Dadaist kind of cook, I have none. But, as a child, I used to pursue something called a Mivvi. This was a fruit lolly with ice cream inside. I assumed that, like so much else, Mivvis had gone the way of all flesh, but they haven't. In fact, here they are actually reviewed. Where, I wonder, did the strangely attractive name come from? It has such a pleasant fifties and Formica feel. Anyway, the reason this came up was my discovery of Waitrose's Fruit Splits. They are Mivvis in all but name and they are better than the Mivvis of my infancy. So the Recipe of the Day is this: remove a Waitrose Fruit Split from the freezer, unwrap and eat it.
