Lost Christmas, I gave you my Sprout.

Whimsy R number suggests < 2000 posts before Xmas.

Who deleted the very first post?

SliceysLittleHelper - 16 Dec 2021 18:12:04 (#3 of 2020)

Me. I posted on the wrong thread as I am a hamfisted klutz when I suffer Thread Creation Nerves.

I am considering this for New Year's Eve just for me to eat:

You could have done an edit slicey and claimed first spot! We'd never have known.

Ooh - we have a big Cote at Home voucher…

SliceysLittleHelper - 16 Dec 2021 18:14:24 (#7 of 2020)

Claiming first post on your own thread is a little declasse, no?

#4 - We live in an age of wonders.

I'm stuck in my tiny kitchen with a frying pan of sausages. If I open the door to the dining room then the smoke alarm will go off. The theory is that by cooking the whole pack of sausages tonight I will have the makings of a nutritious and comforting casserole tomorrow.

Will the plan work?

Everyone Has a Plan Until They Get Punched in the Mouth (by a Sausage)

That NYE Cote at Home is a particularly good option, even by their so far high standards. It must be almost time for another one...

I'm eating what childhood me would recognise as a proper evening meal: sausages, potatoes, carrots and cabbage. It's curious how rarely I eat something like that.

We are having pizza for tea. The school were selling pizza making kits as a money making exercise. So we have the dough and the toppings and Preachy has the joy of making them with the Impala.

I'm having a rather large Moussaka for dinner because I'm useless (from frozen).

Yes, I always feel sort of virtuously old fashioned, if a little dull when I actually do meat and two veg.

Obviously I'm not going to recreate the full 1970s teatime with savoury mince and potatoes (and cabbage) cooked in the pressure cooker, not least because I don't have a pressure cooker.

Sushi here, my favourite go to when I cannot be bothered to cook. Fortunately it has now stopped snowing and we are back into + temperatures. I am starting to warm up to the idea of Christmas, very little left to do before Friday.

My Dad has just asked me if I "could manage a Celebrity Bargain Hunt before we watch proper TV". He seems to be worried we might run out of good TV to watch.

limegreen - 16 Dec 2021 19:15:24 (#18 of 2020)

No danger of that these days!

Sainsbury's are selling mince pie mini shredded wheats.

Dubris - 16 Dec 2021 19:17:01 (#20 of 2020)

What? How? Why?

Ginmonkey - 16 Dec 2021 19:19:00 (#21 of 2020)

I know. My local Sainsbury's has an aisle of mad stuff they clearly bought for a bet.

It is on there. Along with catering sized packs of Big D peanuts (pictures of boobs not included)
