what is this
that was the last thing i fried
mild hangover, boring day at work waiting for IT to get back to me, prolly gonna spend the weekend playing vidya and chilling out.
sort of half-tempted to turn up to the dis meet for a swift pint. maybe.
will try and figure out the schedule
Everyone in town last night was wearing Christmas jumpers except me. This is surely the last Christmas they're going to be around right?
Going to see that Mary Poppins film tonight, I wanted to see Nebraska but Vue are only showing that at lunchtime for some reason. Bastards.
I am about to have a cup of green tea (raspberry and blueberry flavoured) it smells like energy drink which is weird cos it has hardly any flavour.
I'm also about to have my first mince pie of the season.
Really looking forward to the weekend. My lovely friend who has been in France for a couple of months is coming to stay tomorrow and on Sunday I'm cooking a roast. but tonight I shall do nothing, just sit at home, play with the two little cats we're looking after and watch the end of Buffy series 5 EEERRRMAAAHGERRRD and then possibly The Hunger Games - the first one, I haven't seen it yet.
might have a cup myself
And going shopping for presents in town tomorrow morning. I usually dread this but I am trying to be chipper about it, if I go in with a positive 'this is fun' mindset then maybe I won't want to punch all my fellow shopppers, give up and run away to the pub.
I;m going to make one of my friends a hamper of really nice foodie bits and bobs as she's recently moved in with her boyfriend. I'm excited about this present. Where can I get a hamper from though?
Clas Ohlson might have a hamper, they always have random stuff like that.
I've met you in the Afterdark haven't I? I'm afraid this means I will not recognise you, sorry! Steve would though :)
I think it was the night that guy smashed his face up on the dancefloor.
...from a wholesale company - these guys:
If you're anywhere near Brixton or Clapham you can pick up from their warehouse.
that you don't get a needle in your eye. (see below).
frying and sauteeing
also, have very little respect for the culinary expertise of the DiS community to quite, quite honest

or that frying tends to be with a bit more fat
or that you fry an discrete object like a steak, whereas you sautee a pile of chopped up stuff like mince idk
I think it depends how much oil you use
hardly any oil = saute
wee bit oil = pan / shallow fry
oil tae fuck = deep fry
i dont tend to use much oil when i fry bacon, but that doesnt mean im sauteing it does it... maybe if the bacon was in lardons it'd be sauteing
as those turkey steaks were definitely sauteed.
in the sauterday thread
(I'm not sorry)
i have a few things on. going to record a show tomorrow morning, then meeting a canadian couple who are moving back this weekend for brunch, and then going out for some drinks with friends in the evening. on sunday might end up at my parents, and will go and visit my gran see how she is doing.
Food of the gods, right there.
Office party at lunch, Wetherspoons tomorrow, followed by a mate's Christmas dinner in the evening. Sunday may go see the Hobbit. Might also have to look at extending my overdraft. Hmm.
they were nice, had them with a tomato-y sauce.
Tonight I'm DJing at RETROSPECTACULAR 1988 at the Brixton Windmill, looking forward to that. But my DJing partner is ill so I may need to enlist members of the public to supervise the decks when I go for a wee.
No plans for the rest of the weekend, will probably go to the cinema and bake some Christmas biscuits.
I wish I was coming to RETROSPECTACULAR 1988 tonight too :(
Will you still be there?
but it's this sort of thing: http://www.ocado.com/webshop/recipe/pepperkaker-scandinavian-spiced-christmas-biscuits/23879
It is going to be a good gig tonight - any long-distance requests?
There's a small Manchester contingent heading down so they can dance for me.
plans for the weekend include going to see City v Arsenal tomorrow and going to a Tarantino themed party for my friend's birthday. Just taking the easy option and going with a black suit
halloumi is pretty fucking good
really not in the mood for it. i have brought 3 xmas jumpers to work tho.
Turns out if you use a thin omlette/pancake pan with a teflon coating, and make sure it's hot enough, you actually don't need any oil at all...
(The "pan" bit makes it sound fancier)
My gf's hosting a party tomorrow, so that. I've also had requests for homemade tablet and shortbread, so I'll make that tonight or tomorrow morning.
Should really do more Christmas shopping but I still have no idea what to get any of my interest and hobby-free family. Just no clue.
I made CG a bacon and egg sandwich a few weekends ago. I had poached eggs on toast.
Today I am so hungover due to work xmas party last night. It was fun. I had a lovely McDonalds.
Tonight I will be sleeping and eating something very bad for me.
Tomorrow - WEATHERSPOONS PUB CRAWL
Sunday - Sleep, mooching etc
got to hear Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz live too which was nice. Makes sense since it's the same band - Damon Albarn.
some leftover chicken, peppers, onions, garlic and rice for a burrito for my lady on wednesday. it was really really good. so good in fact that i'd already finished off my leftovers in a couple of enchiladas the night before so i had pizza.
tonight apparently I'm doing nothing. well actually i might do a few things. I've got a glass of wine left in the fridge, so i migh booze that. and i've got an amigos in the fridge, so i might booze that, and i've got the urge to make some lebkuchen so i might do those things, which will acompany the buffy viewing quite well.
tomorrow i'm going to pretend to go christmas shopping and end up in the pub watching football or something. anyone who does their christmas shopping before christmas eve is a damned fool.
on sunday I'm being cooked a roast. this will inevitably involve me taking over after the veg has been chopped, so that my lady can get drunk. I'm going to make a shed load of cauliflower and brocolli cheese.
what is my favourite food ever? thanks for asking. It's a lasagne built around a a fiery hot burrito, with pepperoni, chorizo and chopped scotch bonnets on top, served with home made chips.
there are onion bhajis on the side and a layer of curry sauce in the lasagne
It's funny cos it's true.
I need you working at full capacity tomorrow. We can get through it if we work together.
I was planning to get some from Lidl to put in Lucys hamper.
Are you going to make them on Sunday?
by all means get some from lidl for the hamper though.
for fajitas. They were pretty good, even though I had to go sans salsa. :(
Weekend of various Christmas themed activities, and going wheelchair shopping with the folks.
guac > salsa
not in my household.
on wednesday morning for breakfast. A whole packet.
I've been to teh western infirmary today. I have an eye patch now. Word in the office has spread like wildfire thath the ice maiden has a chink in her armour, and so everyone is coming by my office to give me pelters. the guys from IT just came by to deliver their bants. they say I look like daryl hannah. Worrying, they are spot on.
Big Jock is driving me through the edinburgh now for my xmas lunch. Avec eyepatch. Anybody got a parrot I could borrow?
Going to get really hammered.
Funny that, cos I'm in a pretty murderous rage right now.
or just drink rum exclusively.
PARROT BANTS everywhere. Mainkly for my loving and concerned sister (you, incidentally, I hate to take to A&E with a scratched cornea tat she sustained at a halloween party a couple of years ago, dressed as a CAT and wasted on White Lightning. She insisted on prowling about the waiting room on all 4s and MIAOWING at all the staff. (just as well she's cute.) I might remind her of this now actually :)
I hope your eye gets better soon PO.
I once had to wear an eye-patch on CHRISTMAS DAY cos I had a sty. My family took the piss out of me all day :(
