I was told that one should build a fire in the corn field, boil the water, and then bend the stalk over the water until the ear is in the water.
Then I wouldn't have to run!!!

That looks pretty nice for winging it Rock

I see. Lamb chops ala Florence Nightingale

Also, raisins are horrible. Just saying.

Sour milk is disgusting too. But sour cream is marvellous and yoghurt is actually okay too... where do you stand on these???
When I use sour cream I always lick the spoon. Love sour cream.
I don't do much with yogurt unless I really want to follow a recipe. Pretty much the raisin bran story. Nobody told me you had to stir it before eating it. Although I did have orange yogurt ice cream the other day.

That is a great recipe! I have copied and pasted it (I'd be using fresh garlic and probably very finely chopped onion as I don't think the powdered varieties are available). I'll let you know how I get on with it.

There is hope for you yet!

So... if I may be so bold.... when are you going to make English style bacon? I do believe Kylie posted a most attractive picture on your "makin bacon" thread?

It will be even better with fresh minced garlic and onion. I just use the powders because it's so quick - takes about two minutes to make it.
