Re: Breadmaking flour

I buy Sainsbury's Taste the Difference granary. Comes in a 1kg bag, makes absolutely delicious bread (I make the dough in a breadmaker and prove it in the airing cupboard).

Re: RING video doorbells

I have one. When we have work done to our house later this year I'm getting rid. Pros: You can use it as a security camera to check what's going on outside (here ? nothing. ever.) You can speak to people when you're not at home, ask them to leave stuff in the porch etc. Cons: The wifi is utterly s.....

Re: Who's getting the vaccine

My son and his GF had it last wednesday. They both felt terrible with headache and shivers on Thursday and very tired Friday.
Being a caring dad, I left it till Sunday to get them round and help me shift 800kg of ballast.

Re: 2nd dose vaccine

My son and his GF were both hit hard with 1st dose, sweats and shivers for 24 hours.
I was just knackered the next day and Mrs K was fine.

Re: Quorn meat substitute

The idea of ‘growing’ meat in a laboratory ( rather than a live animal on a farm) is an utterly repulsive idea. As a career butcher, if it came to dealing with that, then I am out It won't become mainstream for a generation or longer so you will likely be well retired by then. There are advantages ...

Re: Quorn meat substitute

By "factory grown meat" I was meaning something that isn't yet (but undoubtedly will be) commercially available. Farming animals for food is far more resource-hungry than arable farming, up to 12x for beef I believe, so we need to either persuade everyone to go veggie or find more efficient ways to ...

Re: Quorn meat substitute

As a long-time vegetarian, I never, ever eat "meat substitutes" of any description. What do you class as a "meat substitute" ? Personally I absolutely love Linda McCartney's sausage rolls (make me a bit windy but hey ho) and Mozarella veggie burgers. The thing I've not yet reconciled myself with is...

Re: Out of interest home security

Yeah. Saw it earlier. Scumbags. Arson is nasty. I am assuming it’s youths. Trouble with youths these days,they have no moral compass . Can't agree with that. It's a few feral youths in a few places. The vast majority of young people are honest and hard working. Without going into a long political d...

Re: Quorn meat substitute

I've been a veggie for 30+ years. My Mrs has been since we got together in 93. She is allergic to quorn too. Her's started when she was pregnant with our son; about 4 hours after eating it she gets terrible stomach ache and diarrhea. I think it's quite well documented that the myco proteinquorn is m...
