    Ten pounds a week for food?

    I saw in the media that It's possible to feed oneself for a week for just £10. So I though OK, let's have a try. The rule is - you can only use the real basic stuff from your own cupboards e.g. cooking oil, butter, salt, vinegar and so on. OK so here's my provision (and indeed provisional)...

    Health and Safety Gone Mad

    To use that good old Daily Mail expression this is Health and Safety Gone Mad. I am halfway through cooking a microwave curry. I put it on full power for four minutes, and the instructions say peel back film lid, stir and recover. I didn't think it was that much of an exertion to be honest, but...

    Oven Repair

    Does anyone know anyone or could recommend anyone that does repairs on Electric Ovens? The power tripped when i was cooking the other day, and now the oven doesnt heat, although the grill still works (as does the fan), so at least the whole thing isn't buggered, which i guess means that a...

    Turkey leftovers

    Ok, so having bought (for the first time) a Turkey butterfly joint for Christmas, I'm struggling with ideas for the considerable leftovers.

    Monkey Tennis / Ghost Hunting with The Only Way is Essex

    Seeing the second of the two programmes in the title of the thread advertised on ITV2, I was reminded of a scene from Alan Partridge which (I've just found out spurred the phrase in the first part of the thread title). "In one scene the eponymous character of Partridge, a failed chat show...

    The mongol rally 2012

    SUFC Autobiographies???

    With our stunning progress on the pitch of late, surely many of our players will be looking to follow the likes of Rooney and Owen by cashing-in with tell-all dossiers. Perhaps the Zoners might like to suggest a couple of titles to help them in their new careers... Here's a few to get us...

    This morning, I started to question my housemates manliness for the first time...

    Your cooking speciality

    The toastie thread had me thinking: What meal/snack do you cook really well. I make a mean Shepherds Pie, mainly because I copied my mum's recipe. What really stands out is my Bacon sarnies. Fresh bread from a bakers, butter and properly fried Bacon with Tommy sauce. My mate used to stay...
