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: )

Re: Guilty pleasures

Get thee behind me satan . :mrgreen: Even worse than plain dried mango... Definitely one for the Christmas present list. Last Christmas I made some chocolate apricots for a friend - dried apricots stuffed with a little marzipan and dipped in dark chocolate. I managed to give most of them away... :l...

Re: Re-using old tee shirts

the shirts that are still wearable are being used for gardening, the really beaten ones can have many new use : to clean my shoes, to clean up the mess after a paintjob :? , general cleaning of equipment, etc.... I use "holey" t-shirts as pyjama tops, too... And as underwear. What the hec...

Re: Changing seasons dinner

My purple sprouting broccoli is just coming into its own - so that's my veg sorted for the next few weeks... Rocket is going into its third season (turning into a perennial plant!), and I also pick young lovage for my salad. Plus chives, of course. Oh, and beetroot leaves (sown too late last year to...

Re: Mobile numbers

Unless they have at some point put their numbers in connection with their names online - I would always just try googling them... Sometimes they are on lists of attendees at local meetings or so.

Re: Hi from SW Ireland

They were perfect for setting in concrete to provide the uprights to slide the ducting over (to then form the hoops). Scaffold poles would have done the job but never look a gift trampoline in the mouth! Ah! I had visions of pumpkins jumping up and down... :wink: Yeah, trampolines and gales don't s...

You've got me wondering now - how did you manage to use a trampoline in building your poly tunnel? :scratch:

Re: This year's gluts and failures

I think the problem with peel is mostly with the bought stuff, if it's not organic... Lots of pesticides on there. I use very little citrus fruit, but would probably eat/drink more if I could grow it myself! I've had a grapefruit sitting in my fruit bowl for almost a month... Only buy them when they...

Re: What Is For Tea?

Hopefully tonight I'll get home not too late and have enough energy to cook what I bought on Sunday - beef stew, mash and sprouts (the latter from the garden, and I think I still have some of my own tatties, too). And then it'll be the same the next two nights!

Re: Guilty pleasures

Cheese and chocolate, definitely.

I only overeat when I'm feeling rotten, though. Unfortunately, that's been most of the time recently. Lost a lot of weight without trying when the contract that's just coming to an end first started. I just need a job to feel human.
