Bugger me! An equaliser in the 4th minute of injury time, these things don't happen to us, it should be the other way round.
I'm beginning to thing we belong.
Lots of Tenacious D videos from (mefi)
Rambling Round: good stuff on Woody Guthrie
A very interesting piece from The New York Review of Books on Georges tendency to do his own thing when it comes to matters international.
America gets gentle . Satire is dead.
Someone asked me if I had any ideas for a low fat, high fibre pudding a nipper could make in school. Bleeding Bloody Nora, low fat isn't really my forte. Anyway, I can't vouch for the flavour of these but they probably fit the other requirements:
Apple and Pear Crumble
8oz sliced apples
8oz sliced pears
grated rind of a lemon
Half teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon honey
cook the fruits,flavourings, water and honey on low heat till softened. Mix topping ingredients. Chuck fruit into some sort of oven proof receptacle, top with topping, bung in oven heated to 190c for about 15 minutes. Serve with creme freche, or yoghurt, or some other low fat thing. When lesson over go get a great big fuck off ice cream, covered in sauce and nuts.
I used to make this for the nippers when they were babies, it's not bad.
Banana and Apricot Yoghurt
4oz dried apricots chopped really small
10 oz low fat yoghurt
You should really mix yoghurt and apricots and chill overnight, but I don't suppose it matters.. When ready to serve slice banana and mix in in then distribute evenly, unless someone has been really good then they can have less. The beauty of this is you can put it together in 5 minutes flat then spend the rest of the time arsing about. A bit of honey might be nice.
