    Vegetarian / Vegan recipes

    Important announcement: proceed immediately to anywhere that sells Vivera Veggie Shawarma Kebab and buy all of it. Shallow fry at a good heat in plenty of oil. It’s fucking delicious. Bought some for my daughter and was genuinely disappointed with the real actual chicken I was serving for the meat eaters.
  3. Wow, I had no interest in this whatsoever, haven’t seen a Spider-Man film for years, don’t care, not interested. Popped in here, saw all the praise and decided to give it a go. Jesus. It’s spectacular. I was completely blown away, and both kids (9 and 5) loved it too. Thanks everyone!

    Is that the French original version? If so yeah I bought it by accident but love it anyway

    Classic Christmas Specials

    I had a horrible hungover Boxing Day morning some years ago and stumbled across this whilst looking for something to placate the children. It’s a stop motion farce in the style of the cravendale adverts and is fucking brilliant. A Christmas Panic

    She loved it! I think the texture was pretty good, but I need to work on the flavour next.

    My daughter is veggie and really misses her favourite BBQ ribs, so I thought I’d take a punt at a vegan version. I present to you, Seitan/jackfruit/dowel “ribs”

    Clockwork Orange Remake

    Why do we do this with films? No one says “let’s rewrite lord of the rings but with grime raps instead of boring elvish songs*” or “we’ve reimagined the Mona Lisa with a new, more modern smile!” *actually, someone should totally do this

    Doctor Who

    Really? I thought it was genuinely great. Kept moving at a pace, creepy robots had the kids hiding behind cushions. I’d argue that replacing the obvious evil Amazon empire with “blame it on the individual nutter with socialist leanings” was a bit of a strange piece of social commentary, but it was fun family TV.

    British Restaurant Style Curry

    I bought this years ago and had great success with it: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Curry-Secret-Indian-Restaurant-Meals-ebook/dp/B002S0KC1M/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1541861535&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=the+curry+secret Top tip: close your kitchen door when making the onion base, or your house will smell of boiled onions for a fortnight.

    Scrambled Eggs

    FWIW I would respectfully disagree with @Liamness in that I think the microwave is actually the best place to make scrambled eggs. It’s just a bit of a faff. Break 3-4 eggs into bowl and beat No milk or other liquid Add salt to taste. Science says leaving this to sit for a bit helps and I think it might, so give it 10-15 mins Microwave for 30s, stir Microwave for 30s, stir At this point it should be hot, and edges catch slightly, so drop down to 15s, stir 15s, stir By now it’s probably getting close. Repeat 10s blasts and stirring until done. Personal preference comes in here, but I aim for thick custard, so it’s really important not to overdo it. Caution! Spoon onto buttery sourdough toast, or bagel

    Even toned down it doesn’t quite seem to capture the mood right now, with the armistice centenary and poppies everywhere. ”what can we do to get onboard with the armistice memorial in November guys? Peter Jackson has brought the trenches to life by colorising and enhancing loads of old footage to give a insightful and relatable view of the First World War. JJ?” *takes deep pull of smoke* *nods sagely* ”Nazi zombies?”

    There She Goes - BBC4

    Bloody hell episode 4 was hard work. But so well done. Again the characters are just nailed on, the grandparents could literally be my mum and step-dad. The conversation between Emily and Simon in the past when John took the kids for a walk was so accurate it was horrible to watch. The last two minutes was perfect though, I was genuinely laughing and crying at the same time.

    There She Goes - BBC4

    Is anyone watching this? I stumbled across it by accident the other night and it's brilliant. At first I thought it was a grim documentary about autism, and it sort of is, but then David Tennant deadpanned about having whatever is wrong with his daughter named after him "I could be the next Tourette!" and I nearly spat beer all over the sofa. The setup is Tennant and Jessica Hynes have a daughter with severe learning difficulties, and the plot bounces between when she was pregnant and with Rosie as a 9yr old. Obviously it's not wall to wall jokes, but the drama is brilliantly written and played and makes the comedy feel well earned somehow. Rosie is trapped as a roughly 18 month old mentally, so any parent will recognise the tantrums and stubbornness, but magnified by her being 9 years old. Shaun Pye wrote it from personal experience, and all the characters feel properly real, but credit has to go to Tennant and Hynes for genuinely great performances. They both come across as smart, funny people, who just have a hell of a lot to deal with day to day and just about manage to keep their heads above water. There's no way in hell I would have watched this from either a description or the trailer, but having stumbled across it accidentally I'm glad I did.
