Comments for en-gb 30 Fri 03 Jul 2015 12:28:22 GMT+1 A feed of user comments from the page found at jonnie I haven't been near the blog all day - but commenting from a gay many perspective Martha is 'to Die for' Wed 16 Jul 2008 23:10:13 GMT+1 vainly_here Why so many cooking recipes that are thought to remove brambles?I've seen a better picture of Ritula on a BBC web page, but she's not looking straight at the camera so it might not be suitable for this scene. Wed 16 Jul 2008 11:56:27 GMT+1 DI_Wyman .....and to crack open a few cold ones! Wed 16 Jul 2008 07:28:24 GMT+1 MarcusAureliusII Come with us to explore strange new worlds. To go where no man has gone before. Tue 15 Jul 2008 23:42:28 GMT+1 Deepthought BTW Bella-m, welcome. Tue 15 Jul 2008 20:58:45 GMT+1 Deepthought Bella-m (16),That is Ritula Shah you are referring to... and she gave a barn-storming PM friday last and one. True, she was not given the keys of the PM blog - they were just reported. But she is a regular of Saturday PM [why cannot they blog?]. And World Tonight, and...WR correctly notes that Carrie Gracie is missing, especially as she was for so long on the PM photo list (as a "mystery blonde" according to one report) Tue 15 Jul 2008 20:49:45 GMT+1 bella Lest there be any doubt... SOME of us girlies are just as dedicated to All Things Trek as any of the boys might be. Although TOS leaves me pretty cold.Please view this as a constructive comment: the lass on the right of the picture could do herself more justice with either a lot less eyeliner, or a nice bright smile. Nothing wrong with the face, but not a generous photo. I know some people hate being photographed, and photos like that just re-inforce the feeling - my top tip is not to think about the camera pointing at you, but about something privately amusing (chocolate, William Shatner turned into breakfast cereal, having your toes licked by a small dog... whatever does it for you). Then you're more likely to end up with a photo of a real person and less likely to get one of someone wishing they weren't being photographed. Or maybe this photo was taken after hours of sorting through fairy cake recipes.... :-) Tue 15 Jul 2008 19:44:25 GMT+1 DI_Wyman scary or wot?shatfemale.jpg...........LOLoh, my aching sides! Tue 15 Jul 2008 17:54:02 GMT+1 Gillianian mittfh (8) Ten out of ten for trying, but that wouldn't be as nice as the one I enjoyed at the weekend! ;o) Tue 15 Jul 2008 16:34:49 GMT+1 Simon I detect an absentee.Surely Carrie Gracie ought to be included, as an occasional presenter of PM in the past? Dressed as 7 of 9, naturally.What about Amanda Lewis, sometime producer of this parish? She really should be in here too?Nice job by the digital artist, but incomplete.WR. Tue 15 Jul 2008 14:55:29 GMT+1 Joe_Palooka It's Mr and Mrs Secondstoblastoff, and their Scottish son, Fife. Tue 15 Jul 2008 14:16:41 GMT+1 Deepthought Annasee,You should keep the brambles, and harvest the blackberrys from them. They'll make a great addition to the fairy cakes.Or, mince, potatoes, onions: Make pastry, roll a circle, add mix to one quarter; add blackberries and sugar next quarter. fold over other half, seal along edge and along line between the two mixes.Result; the kind of cornish pasty the tin miners would have had (savory and sweet sides). Not a genuine recipe, but the jist of the real thing. Tue 15 Jul 2008 14:09:09 GMT+1 Hugh_Z_Hackenbach steelpulse (3) I thought the 'T' stood for Teflon ... (you know the rest!) Tue 15 Jul 2008 13:00:35 GMT+1 Hugh_Z_Hackenbach Baked Ground Lamb Curry with Custard ToppingTo serve about 6, with rice1 thick slice bread, 1 inch thick, cut into small bite 1 cup milk 2 tablespoons butter 1 Kilogram coarsely ground lean mince1½ cups finely chopped onions 2 tablespoons hot curry powder1 tablespoon light-brown sugar 1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ¼ cup strained fresh lemon juice 3 eggs 1 medium-sized cooking apple, peeled, cored and finely grated ½ cup seedless raisins ¼ cup blanched almonds, coarsely chopped 4 small fresh bay leaves Preheat the oven to degrees Centigrade. Mix the bread and milk and let it soak for at least 10 minutes.Melt butter over moderate heat. When the foam begins to subside, add the mince and cook it, braking up the lumps with the back of a spoon, until the meat separates into granules. Drain and put the lamb into a large bowl.Pour off and discard all but about 2 tablespoons of fat from the pan and stir in the onions. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions are soft and translucent but not cooked brown. Add the curry powder, sugar, salt and pepper, and stir for 1 or 2 minutes. Then stir in the lemon juice and bring to a boil over high heat. Pour the entire mixture into the bowl of lamb.Drain the bread in a sieve over a bowl and squeeze the bread completely dry. Reserve the drained milk. Add the bread, 1 of the eggs, the apple, raisins, and almonds to the lamb. Mix with a wooden spoon until the ingredients are well combined. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Place the mixture into a an ovenproff dish, smoothing the top with a spatula. Tuck the bay leaves beneath the surface of the meat. Beat the remaining 2 eggs with the remaining milk until they froth. Pour the mixture over the meat and bake in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes until the topping is a light brown.Serve hote with boiled rice. Its called Bobotie, from South Africa.

(0.09 seconds) Top entry: "The perfect fairy cake recipe"Results 1 - 10 of about 1,130,000 for cooking mince. (0.20 seconds)Not too sure why the sponsored link is a supermarket's fairy cake recipe though...Results 1 - 10 of about 34,500 for permanently eliminate brambles. (0.30 seconds) Top article recommends the hard method - dig out as much as possible, then remove any new growth that shoots up. Perhaps you could try carefully applying glyphosate to the leaves, making sure you don't spill it on anything you want to keep?Or you could:* Mix 6oz crushed biscuits + 3oz marg* Place on bottom of flan dish* Mix small pot of soft cheese (200g) and double cream (150ml) together* Place on top of base* Select the best half of strawberries from a typical punnet (1 lb), slice in half, and place on top of cream cheese.* Slice mankier bunch of strawberries, place in jug with a little water, and microwave gently for a few minutes.* Strain cooked strawberries through sieve, add a few tsp cornflower to the sauce, then microwave a bit longer.* Pour sauce over decent strawberries.* Store in fridge until needed.Ta-dah! A very naughty but very nice cheesecake. Admittedly it's about 4-5x the price of a supermarket pre-prepared one, but then again you made it yourself and you know exactly what's in it. It might even taste better than the supermarket's version...Now to return to work... Tue 15 Jul 2008 12:55:02 GMT+1 gossipmistress Sequin really should cycle home in that outfit!Annasee (6) - savoury fairy cakes? With a mince filling? You could use Trekx and make Starship Enterprise cakes. Tue 15 Jul 2008 12:52:57 GMT+1 annasee Well clearly "some people" do not have enough work to do today.And when will you boys realise that some of us girlies are not in the least excited by ANYTHING to do with Star Trek? Or William Shatner? (Did a concert with him once. Coventry Cathedral. Can't remember anything else. Don't think he sang though.)Now if you'd happened upon a sensational recipe for Fairy Cakes, perhaps, or a new, delicious and economical way of cooking 500g of mince, well...THEN I'd be interested. Or a surefire way of killing brambles for ever? Bring it on! Tue 15 Jul 2008 12:32:42 GMT+1 barriesingleton Down Memory Lane (never thought I would find a place to post this!)
