I went home at the weekend, but didn't get around to having any :(
What are you craving?
i'm always craving currywurst :(
Luckily, I have a store next to my house that sells Irn Bru. I am also craving Tattie Scone.
I've proabably never had proper Haggis, as I've only ever bought it from Supermarkets.
(so long as it comes in a bag an dnot a tin!)
I bet some proper freshly made haggis is the shit though.
having some tapas and wine right now.
i mean, if you want to imagine that i am eating biscuits...ok.
i had some potato thing, some tomato thing and some artichoke thing and some red wine. that's all you need to know.
Artichoke hearts in olive oil?
Tomato thing could be absolutely anything, but I'll plump for, Tomato and olives with garlic in oil.
I know nothing about red wine, but I'll plump for a Shiraz.
Had them last night, wanted them the night before. Still want them now. Or Chinese. Maybe I need the salt though I can't imagine why after eating cured meat everyday in Spain.
And veggie haggis.
is that the distant patter of tiny xyloeufs?
i have had an overwhelming craving for tomatoes this past few weeks. I want them with everything.
Im glad its something healthy. My last crave fest was over toffee cheese cake. Ive sickened myself.
i might go and stick one in the oven right now
Could get a Big Mac on the way home tonight, after doing the radio show, just in time to settle down in front of the Apprentice... but I'm trying to save money and be healthy, so I could just have a frozen portion of chilli I made...
What to do? Give in to temptation or not?
it's been feeling like I have weird pins and needles in it for the past four days now and it's driving me crazy. Anyone have any ideas what it could be???
and I have not biten my tongue. Went searching on the internet for reasonable explanation which was a bad idea because I know I don't have MS or Aids.
Though I have recently switched to Soya milk in a bid to lower my intake of dairy - does anyone know if this is a side effect?
You AND V_G_W
Sorry I missed this. Has anyone asked about...?
Those Warburtons potato farl things are a pale imitation at best.
I should learn how to make them. Or go home more often.
:) plenty of vegetarian haggis up here
you not get a Hall's effort anywhere? You've got me craving one now...
oh my god.
(as Harry Hill would say)
But because I lived in Scotland in the early 90s and thus consumed offal products during the mad cow disease era, I'm not allowed to give blood and guess I have a higher than average chance of dying from CJD. Thanks Britain!!
actually tell you that you couldn't or did they do tests or whatever?
and on the form it had a question asking "Did you live in the UK for more than 6 months between date X and date Y?" I'm in Australia, my answer was Yes, so now they don't want my blood in case it contains any of those rogue proteins that cause your brain to turn into a kitchen sponge.
My understanding is that eating BSE-infected meat products can cause variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (the human version of mad cow disease) - not guaranteed, but enough of a risk to make the blood bank nervous about passing on my precious fluids.
There's no test you can do for it until the symptoms appear, and that can take years. Once you get it, there's no treatment or cure, and you can look forward to progressive dementia, hallucinations, seizures and gradual loss of motor skills (including swallowing & breathing) until you die. First symptoms to last rattling wheeze can be anything up to 2 years.
CJV is pretty rare so far, but the whole mad cow thing has epidemiologists spooked, as well as the fact that it wasn't until 2005 that they realised CJV could be passed on via blood transfusions. So the worst case scenario is the ticking time bomb one: within the next couple of decades we could see unprecedentedly large numbers of people turning into drooling gumbies.
That's happening already. It's called the baby boomer generation.
it's twenty to five. just woken up/sobered up. awful.
It just tastes like really tasty spicy meat. You'd never know it was ground up spleens, brains, lungs & spinal cords unless someone told you.
Some people don't like haggis as it makes them think of eating bits of spiced and ground random innard, but they'll still happily eat a sausage or pork pie or something similar.
It's oaty, spicey random meat. Quite moist if cooked properly.
Best either, boiled/steamed in its skin then served with a whiskey gravy along with mashed potato and mashed swede or turnip or fried in slices as part of 'mixed grill' or fry up (alongside fried or scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, black puddings, beans, toast, fried or grilled tomato and mushrooms).
have tonsillitis and am totally bored of yoghurt/ice cream/soup/pain/drool. hm.
