Re: Thought I would put this here to see if anyone is interested.

There was a thing that was getting pushed pretty hard on LinkedIn, was a "premium" black credit card where you take a cut of the fees from the people you recruit. Can't remember that name of it, but it was a classic pyramid scheme, just the same as this one, technology might move on, the hustles car...

Breadcrumb pudding.

This is not very preppery, but it is using stuff that I always have in storage, so I think it's halfway there,just thought I'd share. Pretty much all of us have probably made bread and butter pudding to use up stale bread a good few times, but there's a shortcut that not everyone thinks of. It's not...

Re: Glassing Eggs

There are a few here that tried it, I haven't myself but I remember the topic so I've dug it out for you, there's links to an article or two as well.

Re: Suggestions for good quality walking boots

I've had berghaus, good boots and I had a pair for a good ten years, still have them but they're too stiff for me now.

Have meindl bhutans now, still a bit stiff by modern standards but very comfortable, waterproof and well made. Not cheap but worth every penny.

Re: Lidl selling 5Kg boxes of fruit & veg for £1.50

Yeah, can't go wrong with a quid fifty, even if all you do is make a big vat of soup it's a bargain. Back when I was broke I would buy the slightly battered stuff from the guys on the market, didn't have the most exciting diet but I never went hungry and I was healthier than I am now I can afford to...

Re: Lidl selling 5Kg boxes of fruit & veg for £1.50

None in my store either, great idea though, saves me rummaging in the reduced section. Had a bit of a Google, think the trial has finished now and the boxes were only supposed to be available between 0800 and 1030 which might explain why no one saw one, that's too early for me to be in Lidl anyway. ...

Re: Supermarket reductions bargains

I once bought ten kilos of the really high quality basmati rice for a fiver, no idea why it was reduced, didn't appear to have a date on it and the bag wasn't damaged, guessing it was the last one and the packaging design had changed. I'm always rummaging in the reduced section, I buy most of my mea...

Re: Looking for new EDC bag with no molle

Decathlon are also worth a look if there's one near you, they do a Quecha branded range of bags that are reasonable cheap and cheerful and not bad quality, my mrs has a little joggers pack from them and it's pretty nicely made, they sell loads of things in decathlon so there's a good range of styles...

Re: The Versatile Ham Hock.

They look interesting, I'll never find them for sale down here but there's a few recipes around, one article said they used to be sourdough, which would be easier for me if i can find a recipe that works, I usually have bread yeast around the place but I always have a sourdough starter going, mine i...
