Made Pimm's O Cock, just cocktail with Pimms alcohol drink. Hadn't had that in years. Found it to the most delicious thing on this planet. Ever

So, I have eventually made it tonight. Yum

Curry pot noodles actually do taste of curry, Japanese Katsu curry.

Never knew that until I bought a bottle of the Blue Dragon stuff.

I cook rice using this sistema rice cooker



Kind of hit a miss at the moment. Though I am now getting it cooked properly, I think I still put too much water in it

Microwave, its only for microwave usage, can't imagine it being used in ovens and hobs

The reviews on Amazon have people using Basmati and long grain quite happily. It's very big though.

I just use Uncle Ben's microwave packets. They're good if expensive.

It is good, just got to know how to measure the right amount of water needed and time per power of microwave

I had this Pot Noodles yesterday, it supposedly contained chicken and mushroom, all I got is one tiny bit of chicken and a few bits of mushroom. Fair enough, wasn't expecting a chicken breast or a whole plantation of mushroom, but talk about a rip off or what?

You expected something edible from a pot noodle? Wow. It's more a drunken dare, eating one of those.

I’ve had quite a lot of roast recently

Max £5 from the supermarket, even though I could get a whole chicken for that much, decided to have the small dishes of roast

I think the roast pork is a bit of a rip off, because you only get half of what you can eat. The rest is fat and inedible skin of the pig

Sometimes they're just not the same if you cook them yourself.

Not this time. The sauce came from a well known supermarket, but I wished I had the time to pop over to the big Chinese shop about 4 miles from me to buy the sauce

I like cranberry sauce, and I can see why the US loves it as well

I made my first ever smoothie

I put some coconut shavings in the smoothie, needs to be grinded next time, though it partially worked

In some parts, yes, but mostly did a good job in all honesty

I will also freeze some, I just want to test a theory out
