Youngest son had bought some sweet potato, butternut, and carrot mash. Then realised he wasn't going to use it before the 'best before' date so he asked me if I could make use of it. I generally like to cook from scratch but I'm not overly sni... Read more

Yesterday was Pi Day. I recall a teacher at the school my sons attended who was always very enthusiastic about 'Pi Day'. As you might imagine, the subject he taught was maths. As my pumpkin plans were scuppered, I got the second turkey pi... Read more

Remember the second pumpkin? Well I decided today was the day to deal with it. I was looking forward to getting creative. I planned on a spicy pumpkin soup, a pumpkin chilli [natch] and pumpkin cannelloni. The remainder I intended to portion ... Read more

So this evening The Maybot's government was defeated again. Twice. Effectively we don't have a functioning government. It's beyond shambolic. In fact it's a complete and utter clussterf*ck! The only positive thing I can say is in the UK sys... Read more

So the Brexit B*ll*cks continues. After the Maybot's dash to Strasbourg last night, and claims a 'breakthrough' had been achieved, we discover today that nothing had substantially changed. Our erstwhile MPs had another 'Meaningful Vote' on the... Read more
