Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

Think that's like a lot of things if one flavour overpowers everything else. Your mom's pesto and crackers was probably more pesto than cracker but mixed in with other stuff tends to enhance a dish. My wife doesn't like marmite on toast but when I put a bit in the gravy she liked the gravy. I'm pret...

Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

Back somewhere near topic. We don't eat a lot of pasta, what other ways are to to eat pesto (if any)? I don't see why you couldn't put it with anything that's perhapsa tad bland , rice or potatoes for instance. Might even go well on top of pizza . I suppose it all comes down to whether one likes pe...

One thing I'm going to stock more of now is tinned fruit: while my kitchen was being fitted, the best/easiest treat I could find for myself was tinned fruit: pineapples, peaches, apples, things like that.
Is it just me or does anyone else think tinned fruit tastes best straight from the tin ?

Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

Think we're all in agreement with Jenny here. What's the old bible saying ? Man cannot liveth by bread alone or something like that. One can exsist on bland basic food without a doubt but adding something tasty is certainly very good for moral . Another food I'd add to the list is anchovies, perhaps...

Re: Stash in a flat garage roof

I've made a similar use of the ceiling in my garage although we don't use it for food , it's more tent poles and the like but as said that frees up space elseware .

Re: Wearing a lanyard while driving

That's a good point, grenfell - I'm guessing people don't often have pockets in that positioning, but thinking about it ... I tend to wear those check shirts which come with chest pockets . I used to put my phone in when I was working until I learnt the lesson not to lean over a fish pond ...perhap...

Re: Ready-seasoned wood?

Wow, I certainly won't be spending that sort of money for that sort of return so thanks for the heads-up! The community group I was referring to probably isn't a million miles away from you either, Moira/Donnisthorpe I believe. Not a million miles although not quite on the doorstep for a community ...

Re: Wearing a lanyard while driving

Reading that report it looks like the problems occur when the airbag goes off . Must admit it's something I'd never considered. I'd imagine having something solid in a shirt chest pocket would cause similar injuries?

Re: Keeping safe your supplies at home

Something that crossed my mind is that after a sudden crash, when people are getting hungry and desperate, it would be sensible to wear some outsized clothes and start acting as if you are prepared to eat dirt. Look as ill and hungry as everyone else, or someone will shout "hoarder" and as "punishm...
