    I am not sure whether I want to do this or not - but here is the list and plan on how to have a stress-free, yet tasty Xmas:

  3. Bloody hell I'm full from just reading it. Fair goes though!
  4. I had a stroke of good fortune. Called in at Aldi to find two microwave christmas dinners in the freezer so I bought both. That's this year and next year taken care of, how lucky was that.

    Feckin 'ell!I wonder if Mysteron has a warning order to go with that!?
  6. This post is absolute comedic brilliance right across the humour spectrum.

  8. I'll go for Rod Liddle's recipe in the Spectator, which has the benefits of being seasonal, topical and includes instruction to "shove a kebab skewer or wooden skewer through the arsehole" in the marinading section.

    Drinks tip...

    Get your lemons & limes & cut them into inchish chunks & put one into each ice cube block & freeze.I also add a dash of ginger cordial to the water & lemon chunk before freezing for the whisky.
  10. I had a small contribution with maybe a little humour, but I bow down to this one!

    I am in the presence of a master!

    (Retires laughing to garden as choking sets in !!!)
  11. Putting that shoite into even the shitest of whisky is just plain wrong. :)

    Give em cheap rotgut from Lidls,keep the Bells Sherry Cask for moi! :twisted:
  15. I'm doing beef wellington (I'll post the recipe up later, but if you're really interested it's one of Ramsey's)... it involves a mushroom puree and parma ham wrap, and a good brushing of mustard. Serving that with roasties, pigs in blankets, carrot batons and mange tout baked in butter and nutmeg, and a port and stilton gravy. That's the lot, no starter or anything... I don't want to be in the kitchen all day, 2 hours is plenty. Stilton, Cheddar, Yarg and Camembert are for afters, with biscuits. (No cooking you see).

    Edited to add: Mysteron is a ******* nutter! Talk about obsessive compulsive.
    But good on you mate.... I'm only doing a big paella tomorrow night and that will do me for a few days lunches refried with pittas. Boxing day is cold meats with pickles and leftover wellington. I ain't cooking.
