    I do not trust burritos we do not have them in Europe. Reminds me of visiting family in the States and seeing a ramdom obese person eat a tray of the Taco Bell. I will forever not trust mexican food now.

    My earliest instance of distrust in fast food products was a in regards to fast food chicken. My sister's friend who worked for a short time in one of those fast food restaurants that mostly sells chicken, gained much weight during her employment there, she was slim before that. She never been able to loose that weight completely afterwards. I remember it was strange seeing her, the last time a saw her she was slim girl and the next time I saw her after several months she looked not just a little overweight, but quite obese. Like a macabre make over 'before' and 'after'.

    Those chickens are stuffed not only with bad fats and antibiotics but also with gmo's and growth hormones. They wreck a complete havoc in our physiological systems. Probably because of that she found it extra difficult to loose that gained weight, I think.

    I am sad to hear of your sister’s predicament. I was not a big fan of fast food but ever since my weight issues I am encouraged to eat it occasionally. Germany does not allowed GMO or Antibiotic Chicken if I recall correct.

    I personally do not like fast food chicken or fish. I stick to burger or pizza for a treat.

    I have also tried to make the Korean pickled food called Kimchi. Half Korean half German friend from school introduced me to this food it is very delicious and easy to make just takes times. I think perhaps your Father would love it’s taste.

    I made a Beef & Ale pie for dinner with honey roasted veg (carrot, baby potatoes, broccoli, corn cobs) with mash potatoes also for Father. Mother has not eaten much lately as things are not so optimistic health wise with her cancer. However today we are blessed she ate half of the whole pie I would say and much if the sides.

    I have the happiest feeling will make another pie in a few days see how well she eats.

    Last night: Two rather large lamb shanks vacuum bagged with olive oil, sea salt, ground black pepper, and fresh thyme sprigs. Cooked sous vide for 48 hours at 144 F. Served with a side salad of lettuce, avocado, and tomato and a small array of sauces for the lamb – mint sauce, spicy mango chutney, and harissa.

    We’d never tried harissa before. It’s a red Tunisian paste made from smoked hot peppers and other spices. Very tasty and very HOT! Goes well with lamb and other things too. We got ours at Trader Joe’s. Recommended if you like a bit of heat.



    Lamb shanks are a special treat for our dogs, who chew on the bones for hours to get all the marrow out.

    When I was a nipper on the farm we had a 'neighbour' (you could see him with your binoculars) who was a Scotsman, Mr Blair, though no relation to that criminal Tony.
    Well, I used to fish and build dens with his son Dennis and when I was in the house one time Dennis said we were hungry and Blair Sr. said from the scullery: 'Get thi'sel' a slice 'o purritch'.

    What? You may ask. Well, it appears there was a drawer in the kitchen into which cooked porridge, or porridge left from the morning or whatever, was poured to set. Then it was used from which to cut slices. To be eaten 'as is' or fried up in butter.

    Blair junior came back with two slices and we went off to fish. From one side of the pond I saw him happily masticating. I took a bite of my slice and thought it tasted a wee bit salty for my liking, but being a good lad I finished 90% of it and threw the end to the fish...which would have made any fish a bottom feeder, like it or not.

    Scottish members, what know you of the 'purritch drawer'?
    I’m not Scottish but have lived here 10 years and heard about the porridge drawer from an online buddy who encountered it at university in Sheffield. Also up here are porridge vans, like ice-cream vans, selling porridge with various accompaniments such as blueberries and dried fruit. I love porridge but just with a little milk.
