Have you bought a house? Or maybe a casa?

I was sent out to buy milk.

I bought milk.  I'm not falling for that one again.

Shouldn't that be 'a can of lovely beans'?

I discovered it is close, but not that!

I wandered lonely as a bean
That floats on methane's foggy screen
When all at once I saw a breakfast,
A toast, a sausage, a golden egg;
I masticated and chomped these rare delights
A welcome end for winter's nights

In a cafe once I was told I was strange when I asked for Beans near toast..... Beans on toast is just horrid!

Try telling that to the English people.

Beans for brexit.

IMO beans on toast are the *only* acceptable use of a tin of baked beans in 'tomato' sauce.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

On my Metallurgy BA we were taught the lurid sauce was mostly about hiding the metal oxides (can't remember if it was beens or tuna where the welding process for making the seam destroys the protective plastic coating on the inside of the tin, tuna probably).

Wash off the sauce and you've a perfectly serviceable tin of budget haricots for chill or stews etc.  :thumbsup:
... or play them at their own game and dirty up the sauce with Worcestershire, chutney, pepper, mushroom additions etc etc.

Beanz are also good on baked potatoes. But they are one of the few good uses for toast.

Toast and potato are both excellent blotters of wet things on plates that would otherwise escape the fork.

They form part of my neat eating strategy. It's a challenge to sit a long way from a table in a wheelchair that won't fit underneath and have limited use of my right hand.

I mostly DON'T make a mess.

Today I learnt about (but haven't eaten) injera. It's a sort of sourdough chapatti, at least in the way it functions: to soak up and pick up other food. It also serves as a plate. Don't know if things like that are an aid to "neat eating"?

Indian folk can eat neatly with one hand and no cutlery. I certainly can't manage rice & sauce the way they do...
