In separate news, while I have a Santoku and I like the idea of it and use it from time to time, I had not found anything that actually needed a Santoku, as opposed to being slightly easier. Until today. Cutting freshly dug potatoes, the sort that are as brittle as a brittle thing for a day or so. My normal knives are all too thick and split rather than cut, even the six inch, the santoku sliced like a ninja.

And cut like a razor blade, I’ll warrant.

Just had some "bottled conditioned" ale, with NO yeast sediment.  How does that work?

It's easy to transport, will sit in a ship for several weeks without going off. China has the world's biggest garlic industry by far.

Eating's a serious business. Don't bollocks around wagging your tail.

Presumably not settled, ie it was dispersed in the liquid and you drank it.

You’ll be able to tell by the severity of your hangover tomorrow.

Saw some left-over pasta in the fridge last night, MrsT said it was going spare so I nuked it with some smoky lardons and ate it with butter & parmesan.  It was revolting.  "What's in it?" "Roasted vegetables."  By the flavour, cucumber or snot courgette.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

I'm tidying up the cupboard in which I keep my camping kit.  Tucked away at the back , 4 pouches of freeze dried main meals with "best before" dates ranging from 2013 to 2015.......


Goulash,  Rice with Fish & Tomatoes,  Mushroom & Chicken Risotto, Game Casserole......


Dare I....... ???

Yes, you do dare, but only one at a time. Alternatively, save them for a hot date.

Srsly, can those things even go off? As long as they're still sealed, I can't imagine anything bad happening to them. I also can't imagine anything good happening, but you knew that when you bought them. You could even save them for your next camping trip...

You'll be fine.
A few weeks ago I had some Vegemite dated as 2012.
I'm still here.

Some old cupboard foods may taste rancid or stale but are not harmful.

Objection, yeronner!  Vegemite is not “food”.

Slightly surprised he didn't pick up on her pre-cooking the egg - I always add the egg raw, so you can really mix it through the rice properly. But maybe I'd get a kicking from Uncle Roger for doing that!

 ;D He might be the Hambini of cooking (no, not rude enough) but I agree with him. Except perhaps the induction hob, I don't think I've ever used one of them.

Nothing wrong with induction hobs, I'm a big fan. I can live with his disapproval on that point.  ;D

Uncle Roger afraid of ghosts. Not egg fried rice.

He's right about the MSG though. Admittedly, I accidentally bought a 10 kg bag, so I've been putting it in everything for the last three years.

ETA: as a serious point, trust me, adding MSG to anything savoury is awesome. And it's vital for a stirfry.
