Pasta always solidifies. It could be used as an anti-bump layer in kids' playgrounds.

That's exactly what it was like, a rubber paving slab.  :laugh:

I tried the coca cola ham thing, with a maple syrup glaze.
It would have been gorgeous if I hadn't bought the ham from ASDA
(Stringy, dry and pumped full of water....fucking horrible stuff)


Next time I'll go to the local butchers.

Aye, that'd give the Irish quite a shock. They'd be sober; quite a new experience for them!

Could be Vodka.

Are Guinness doing Vodka?  :grin:
(Selling it in pint glasses is hardly responsible if they are.)   :shocked: :azn:

A pint of vodka  :laugh:

Actually a good idea, but not for the liver

I have dead friends who would have thought nothing of drinking a pint of vodka.  :wink:

Best I managed in a day was 1.5 litres (about 3 pints).
+ several cans of lager + some cider + a couple of bottles of Buckfast.

.....it was a while back.

That was a suicidal dose and you are very lucky to survive. I never could hold my liquor. A quarter bottle of spirits or a single bottle of wine had me more than wobbly.

It didn't feel like it at the time, I was operating quite well but it did go downhill quite rapidly around 2am.  :azn:

I don't hang around with the blokes I was with at the time any more, the drinking and drug taking were at Rock & Roll levels, and the fact that we'd just lost a mate we'd known since we were 4yrs old hardly slowed them down.  :rolleyes:

I think the advert was an attempt to tell drinkers to be responsible with alcohol. Poor timing though, you would think it would be an April Fools joke

I don't think that's what we were talking about mate, we kinda drifted off the point.  :smiley:

I think bubbly is well overpriced in my opinion

I just bought some BBQ ribs from the local Chinese...sorry, most local Chinese place.
Cremated BBQ ribs would have been more accurate, but it took me about 40 minutes to gnaw my way through seven of them, so there's probably some value there.
I can eat a Big Mac meal in ten.  :grin:

I bought a half dozen very large free range eggs from the Co-Op and two of them were double yolkers.  :cool:

I've not seen any of those in years.

Me neither, though I'm told  you can buy them specifically.

I've heard that myself, Sainsbury's or something.
Never shop there though.

Co-ops are very expensive compared to other shops

I love double yolker eggs. Does the double yolks prove that twins were born out of two eggs in one?

Yep: The Co-op is dear.


And a double-yolker, if fertile, would produce twins.

Been drinking a lot of fruit juices and freak juices i.e. ones that contain ginger, flax seeds whatever next, you know the score

Quite tasty actually, especially the Innocent Apple Juice

I see ALDI are trying to claim they've invented the square sausage. 
You know, that thing that Scots have been having on a roll for about 150 years :laugh:

They'll fail. And though I really don't like it - to greasy for me - I'll happily support the Scots' right to it.

You should try a steak slice, they're extremely lean, but I know what you mean.  :wink:
The ones from most supermarkets and chains aren't up to much.........especially those very pink ones you get from Iceland that are only 40% beef (and their pork ones are worse at only 31% meat content).
By contrast, a steak slice from the local butchers would be 80%+ lean beef.

Not on sale in our local butchers.
The last haggis I bought wasn't that spicy. Okay but not Dumfries standard.
