    Looks good. Looking forward to trying this out.
  2. Your food guilty pleasures

    Wow. Sounds amazing, I'll give that a try thanks
  3. Your food guilty pleasures

    Mind = Blown.
  4. Your food guilty pleasures

    Having just sat and eaten a packet of this glorious stuff with some chicken breast, it got me thinking about what other food guilty pleasures you guys may have. Sure, the above pasta 'n' sauce has very little nutritional value but it sure will fill you up. Throw a big dollop of butter into the mix when its cooking and you've got a rich, creamy carb overload. I've also made these and thrown in left over veg, ham, anything really to spice them up a little. Often these are on sale in supermarkets at 50p a packet so I always got a few in, to keep in the cupboard for when I'm feeling too lazy to actually cook anything. I actually think these were my first experience of pasta as a teen. Which is quite shocking, I know.

  7. The Ultimate Burger

    I'm in Amsterdam this weekend. Anyone recommend any burger joints over there?
  8. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

    Quick question (sorry if its been covered already!) I played GZ earlier in the year but I didn't really enjoy it. I thought it was just ok. I've heard great things about this though so I wanted to know how similar it is? Or rather, is it worth buying if I wasn't that into GZ? Ta! x
  9. Fallout 4 - VR Coming Soon

    Amazon bundle edition available which includes a book on the history of the fallout series and CD of the F4 soundtrack. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B013B6H890 Changed my pre-order from the standard edition to this edition...

Also pre-ordered this in hardback... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fallout-Vault-Dwellers-Survival-Guide/dp/0744016312/ref=pd_sim_63_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=1J0R002BVT01MDBDQ2ZF And this... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fallout-Hardcover-Journal-Bethesda-Softworks/dp/1608877051/ref=pd_bxgy_14_img_z Whenever I'm going to use that journal I don't know. Damn you amazon.
  10. Poached eggs

    Good idea! Why did I never think of that?! I agree with Davros regarding the cling film method, it does indeed sound fiddly. I'd never heard of it until it was suggested on here. I've never had issues (egg freshness aside) so I can't see the benefit to it. However, the video as posted by redbloodcel looks pretty cool. I reckon I'll give that a try tomorrow (long weekend FTW! )
  11. Poached eggs

    I'm seeing a pattern here. I shop at the weekends and I've generally got eggs left the following week. I guess this is what it is. Fresh eggs for weekend breakfasts! Thanks guys. +1's all round.
  12. Poached eggs

    I love poached eggs. They're one of my favourite things to have as my weekend Breakfasts. 2 toast, 2 rashers of bacon (a rasher on each piece of toast) with a poached egg sitting on top each piece of bacon with a little black pepper. Excellent. However it appears that lately my poaching technique is letting me down. Massively. I've never had any issues in the past and I've always prided myself on my poaching ability yet I don't quite know what I'm doing wrong now. As a result, I'm now getting a poached yolk with all the egg white all stringy and not attached to the yolk. Still tasty but I feel I'm being cheated out of my full egg! There has been no changes in my technique so I don't know why suddenly they're going wrong. Boil small pan of water (with a tiny splash of vinegar) Once the water boils, I turn the heat on the hob to the lowest setting, just to maintain the temperature.Using a fork, stir the water vigourously to create a vortex effect.Quickly crack the egg(s) into said vortex and allow to cook.It's never failed me until this last fortnight. I can't figure why the eggs aren't staying intact. I'm worried Rllmuk My weekends aren't the same without my perfect poached eggs. Please help!
