  7. JamesFrance says :

    … and wholemeal rice, and a pork chop, aux ‘erbs. No, not those ‘erbs, bunch of hippies.

    Ras el hanout, the nor’african mixture. And estragon (always makes me think of “en attendant godot” as I’ve said before).

    And a glass or two of Morgon, a light, yet deep Beaujolais, which has “notes of this, finishes of that, and aromas of the other” as the winos say, ‘cept they usually mention blackberries.

    I always want to whisper “mate. I think you mean ‘grapes’. Not blackberries, as any fule know don’t take it personally” but that’s probably just my ignorance 🙂

    Right, must cook on.

  11. JamesFrance says :

    Rant, Xen? I didn’t see no rant. Now let me give you a fine old rant, so we’re all talking about the same thing:

    Now, in France, you see, undert he occupation … and that was that. Then they cotinued .. Algeria, that was what came next and … then the catholic church, Monsignor Lefevre, and … then they … !!! This cannot stand !

    That’s a rant 🙂

  12. emmachisset says :

    your food sounds good James,

    Greek salad and sirloin steak for me, with bread,

    No wine !

  13. polly says :

    Hummus be damned, I have just discovered the ultimate (low fat) dip….

    cottage cheese, blended with a hand blender. An experiment because I wanted a nice creamy (low fat) dip to go with my sweet potato fries. Utterly delicious – unlike normal cottage cheese. More cheesy and less sharp tasting than fromage frais or quark but nice thick creamy textured dip. I can’t believe this isn’t already a thing, but doesn’t appear to be from a glance at the internets.

    Next to try, onion and chive flavour to have with crudites. I’m stunned at my own genius.

  14. polly says :

    Apparently Cheryl no surname and Liam wotsit have called their son ‘Bear’ in tribute to Bear Grylls.

    Am I the only person now picturing this small baby as a large hairy gay man?

  15. polly says :

    Xen, it’s the election. Best to avoid the news…..

  16. interiorbc says :

    mmmm…yam fries…sweet potato fries also…with aioli, nom, nom,nom

  17. Sleepychow says :

    Happy retirement, Bru.
    I also pictured you aged mid-forties ish.

    Whizzed cottage cheese?
    Whatever next?

    i see

    I have some sour cream dipthing whichh needs eating up. This is my problem. Can’t bear (or Bear) waste.

    Aaargh. Also have a problem with the space bar. Think it may be down to (not so) small girl crumbs.

  18. Sleepychow says :

    Bread disaster!*

    Seed tray didn’t open.

    So what do I do?
    1) Leave seeds in for next time?
    2) Shake heavy bread-maker upside down over the sink?
    3) Spoon out the seeds?
    4) Something else?

    Hi Justa.

    All it needed was a bit of a clean and a cable long enough toreach the fuse box and wiring in and raising on a plinth of joy.


  24. justamentalpatient says :

    Freezers are the best, and very easy to clean.

    They make life so much easier.

  25. Sleepychow says :

    I spent so much of my life (upuntil5 years ago) without a freezer and now we have 2!
    We saw the need though. It’ll pay for itself very quickly.
