    Best jacket potato filling

    For me it has to be chopped sausages in Schwarz peppercorn sauce although cheddar cheese is my every day favourite. Beans or tuna mayo have to be the worst.

    Best food from a can.

    I am torn between Heinz beans and mini pork sausages and Heinz Cream of tomato soup.

    Bacon, Sausages and burgers are bad for you!!

    I'm not a great lover of burgers but the latest WHO report on health risks puts two of my favourites right up there on the 'no no' list. I shall not be refraining from sausages and bacon, but is nothing sacred in the dietary world these days? Obviously this could have a serious impact on South...

    Hi all, I had a BBQ yesterday and I've got about 5 days to get shot of a load of meat (burgers, sausages the usual). What I don't want to do is just lob it all down the tip, I don't have any room in the freezer and I don't particularly want to attempt a new take on the Atkins diet. So what I...

    Veggie sausages!

    Maybe a bizarre post but few years back I had some veggie sausages in Swanage. They were like spring rolls, full of bean sprouts. I have looked for similar in various supermarkets but can't find anything like them. Anyone know where to find them? (I said it was a bizarre post!)

    Rubbish nights out

    Yesterday evening I went to a German-themed Hot Tub/BBQ party. The evening started with all the guests having to get in a Hot Tub. Unfortunately, the thing had a malfunction and rather than a Hot Tub it was a distinctly lukewarm tub. Meanwhile the host was seemingly busy on the BBQ, and it being...

    Moving abroad - What did you miss most or forget?

    As many of you know I'm finally off to HK on 1st Feb after a seemingly never ending on-off saga. It's a permanent local role with no plans to come back even for retirement though plenty of water to pass under the bridge before that happens. I'll be back 2-3 times a year, possibly more if...

    Which match should I watch ?

    Just seen Liv - Man City while cooking myself a nice fry up (I believe I deserved it after a game of six a side) sausages, eggs, mushrooms, bacon and beans Choices are Sunderland - Arsenal, Chelsea - Wolves (well that's out of the running), Birmingham - Fulham or Burnley - Villa. Alternatively...

    Question County Fare

    Anyone go to the "Robin Hood" County Show that was at Garons? I did, don't quite see where the link to Robin Hood was apart from a couple of people dressed up in 13th century attire and scaring kids with big sticks, weapons, not part of their anatomy, eh Tarquin. Saw some Feret racing which was...

    Question Should you always bring food/drink to a gathering

    Last night Mrs Dts and I hosted a BBQ for Mrs DtS friend who is a girl (Thought best not say girl friend or I will get all the Brighton jokes) and her fella. So the girls can discuss table plans. Really like her fella. Good lad who likes a beer. Mrs DtS mate is a good girl, massive set and...

    Maybe Just A Shandy

    Harry Redknapp has always had a slightly jaundiced take on modern football. He doesn't care much for vitamin supplements and sports psychology, he'd rather talk old fashioned motivation than 'visualisation' and he doesn't feel bad about swearing at his players. Earlier this season I saw him...

    IRISH SAUSAGES Shamus and Murphy fancied a pint or two but didn't have a lot of money between them, they could only raise the staggering sum of one Euro. Murphy said 'Hang on, I have an idea.' He went next door to the butcher's shop and came out with one large sausage. Shamus said 'Are you...

    Men In Tesco

    This letter was actually sent by Tesco's Head Office to a customer in Oxford: Dear Mrs. Murray, Whilst we would like to thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco Loyalty Card, the Manager of our store in Banbury is considering banning you and your family from shopping with us...

    Catering at FF

    I've already posted this on the Feedback on Walsall thread on the Away Travel Board, but thinking about it thought worth wider coverage on this board The Saddlers club at the Walsall ground is in my opinion, while basic, excellent and just what is required. Two bars one for "Home members only"...

    The End Of Motty

    Apparently, Sunday night is going to be his last big game before he hangs up his sheepskin. Am I alone in being delighted? Right up until 2002, he was absolutely superb. Knowledgable, consistent and informative. Then, and I believe it was the early kickoff against Nigeria, he went absolutely...

    And God Created

    In the beginning God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, with green, yellow and red vegetables of all kinds so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives. Then using God's bountiful gifts, Satan created Dairy Ice Cream and Magnums. And Satan said, 'You want hot fudge...

    With a recession pocking its head from around the corner, I decided that perhaps with the amount we are all shelling out on fuel and household bills that a bit of good housekeeping was in order. I tryed to explain to my daughter that maybe when she went upstairs that she could possibly learn to...
