Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.
it's a thing that looks like Aunt flo form Bod with a ball in the bottom and you fasten it up with herbs and stuff in and shake it in a cocktail stylee. Like a shakeable pestle and mortar.
I've never had much luck with it as you are meant to put the stuff in in some kind of order and the welly that he shakes it with means I would have to sit down with a glass of wine afterwards to recover. I stick with a pestle and mortar, a herb ritter (I don't know what theyre called Nigella chops chocolate on hers) or a flat of a knife.
Saw one of Jamie's earlier Naked Chef shows yesterday while he was up in Scotland .. he didn't have a pestle and mortar so he used a bowl and the end of a rolling pin. Now I thought .. see that's something i have in my kitchen so perhaps one day in future I'll use that rather than run out and buy something fancy and expensive (even if it is better).
I like little things like that.
I mentioned it
Mrs F: If you're ever near an asian (in oz that's chinese, vietnamese etc more than Indian' Pakistani etc) grocery or supply store you can get a reasonably priced stone pestle and mortar. Don't know if that applies in the UK.
I did cheat a little I used, 1kg of cherry toms from a local farm shop which were around Â£2 to buy with 2 x 400g tins of cherry toms I had in the cupboard (T***o finest 49p per tin). We did feed 3 adults and 4 children so it wasnt too bad.
We are going to try it with onions, peppers and caugettes next time. I reckon you could replace the sausages with chicken or game and it would be fab.
P.S got my flavour shaker yesterday from A**s for Â£9.99, bargin!
