I was dry bummed by the 2I/C
For the first time? Surely not.

I myself breaded and fried my own fish for the first time today.
Bloody lovely it was too.

Root Canal Treatment.

Not really something I'll be trying again in a hurry.
Perhaps the dentist was also doing it the first time?

I had a civil conversation with a gayer, it only lasted a couple of minutes so i never had a chance to offend him.

I made rice pudding on the living room fire.... only burnt it slightly!
What else have you made like that? I've always harboured a desire to have ago at it.

My Granny was raised in a thatched cottage and all their food was cooked on an open fire using various pots and skillets. They even baked bread which was cooked all round by shovelling burning chunks of turf (I was going to say coals but I don't think they had that) onto the lid of the pot which was hanging off a crane affair over the fire. I saw a documentary with ISTR Adam Hart-Davies demonstrating how Roman Legionaires used a very similar technique to bake a bread using two metal dishes.

Well I've managed to boil a kettle and toast crumpets. Early days though. It's a funny fireplace, halfway between being a hearth and a range. There's a space either side of the firebasket to stand a pot but they're not evenly heated as on a proper range. I shall persevere with it!
