Re: First home grown lunch of the year

Sounds lovely... :) I've been having purple sprouting broccoli for longer than I enjoy now, and that's what I'll have today, again. Must be coming to an end soon! And I still have beetroot leaf, in my salads as well as cooked, from last year's beetroot. And my now three year old rocket, chives and y...

Re: Brits banned from overseas hotels...

Well, it is true that the Brits have a much stronger blame and claim culture (inherited from the USA, of course) than the rest of the world seems to have. Never understood that. For my part, I would advise any foreigner not to come for a holiday in Britain - not until they've sorted out their bloody...

However, now we need to add all sorts of extras before, during, after, whenever, to the wash, Really? I've never felt the need...

Re: Guilty pleasures

Prunes, soaked in brandy, stuffed with an almond (or marzipan) and coated in dark chocolate. Ah yes - I think prunes are seriously underrated, anyway! I see we think along the same lines... (My friend doesn't like alcohol, though - so that would be one I'd be forced to eat on my own... :mrgreen: )
