Oi! Chip shop people.  Simply hard boiling some eggs and then tipping them into the big jar of vinegar on your counter, does not magically turn them into pickled eggs.

File with pie/not a pie.

Ah. So what's a pickled egg? I've never had one, and assumed that was what they were.
What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?

Basically, pickling takes rather longer than just putting a boiled egg in a jar for an afternoon.  All that produces is a boiled egg with vinegar on it.

Just been to Barnet Cyclists monthly meeting.
The mother of one of our riders has given us three large boxes of unbranded chocolates.
They looked lovely but tasted this:

MEH!

Sainsbury's have discontinued JugIt milk bags and jugs because they 'have found other ways to save plastic'.

Perhaps they would like to take my jugs back as they will have no future use and take up scant cupboard space. They are now a waste of plastic...
