Works best with rotten eggs? You sure you're not French? :wink:
I am most certainly not French. :D

Eggs are rotten if they float when placed in water. Otherwise, they are perfectly fine for pickling and much, much easier to peel once cooked.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

UK eggs, perhaps. :mrgreen: Around here it's enough to put them under a stream of cold water when coming out of the boil.

You want a fight about the right way to cook eggs, you Froggy Bastard?

You've come to the right man. :D

Same here.

Mr Camel is from up north I believe - whereas I'm from the south.

I think you can see what's going on here.

Haggis is for the Jocks. Around here we have Bury Black Pudding.

We share the same language, but somewhere in our history, there must have been some terrible disagreement over the meaning of the word pudding.

Image

Those who thought pudding should be a tasty, creamy, sweet desert stayed in the new world. Those who thought pudding should involve meat, blood, and bread got back on the boat and went home, thankfully taking their cricket bats and powdered wings with them. :D
Such potential!

Much is made of Beer snacks, and Beer, but no mention of the bottle
of Stone's Original Ginger Wine. That wasn't just a two beer snack.

Is it sweet? never had, now it would be a death sentence.

The snack plate would be at least 15 hours of intense pain.

But if I could I would prefer a bock or doppelbock, it will be the last thing I do.

It's extremely sweet. Almost like a ginger flavoured honey. It'd send my blood sugar levels into hyperglycemia land.

Still, it's better than it was and is, as we have it in the vernacular, "Going Fucking Nowhere." :)

Hey, smartarse, I buy this stuff from ASDA. It's about a quarter of the price as HP and tastes exactly the same. :De_Bunk:

HP sauce was produced at a factory in Birmingham for over a hundred years, but about thirteen years ago the factory was closed and since then all production has been in the Netherlands. :cry:

Know what? US L&P tastes different to ours. Its sweeter and less spicy.

Not much. But noticeable to a cultured palate.

I generally avoid over hot chillies in meals as it wrecks other subtle flavours. I prefer bird's eye chillies as it allows softer ingredients to shine.

Yet, l happily make a scotch bonnet, tomato, shallot and cucumber salsa for homemade crisps on Saturday movie night.

I like carbs. I would hate to have to give them up. But I'm getting to the point where it might be unavoidable.

Medical peeps now say that carbs are bad, unless they are exactly the right carbs. The naughty carbs turn instantly to sugars and those turn instantly to fat under the careful tutelage of the human metabolism and this leads to cardiovascular problems.

But damnit! I loves me some pasta. And bread. And rice. And beans.

Fuck.

Try brown rice or basmati rice, thoroughly rinsed before cooking. You need some carbs to survive, just the right ones. :)

Yea, presumably there are 'fast' carbs and 'slow' carbs and the slow carbs aren't as bad as the fast carbs.

The durian of beer snacks though in this case its looks not smell as these are actually quite tasty. My dad and myself loved these. Past tense, I tried recently and...Nope.

That's the way my Doc explained it to me when I was first diagnosed as a diabetic. "You need to eat complex carbohydrates that your body needs to work to digest." Said she. Thirty years later, my blood sugar levels are close to normal. I'm beginning to go blind but hey, Mrs. Camel ain't the beauty she once was. :D
