Ooooh!

That takes me back.

I used to enjoy cooking Sunday lunch. That would be self-indulgence as no one would be allowed in 'my' kitchen while I was cooking.

I never quite mastered Yorkshire puds but I am very proud of my roast spuds (fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside (thanks to Delia Smith)). Roast parsnips and sweet potatoes too.

I used to slice the carrots length-wise, boil them then lightly fry them in orange juice and cinnamon.

Drooling

Good tip on the carrots, thanks. Thumbsup

The secret to Yorkshire Pudding is briskly mix the batter, put a little hot beef fat/drippings in the cups, oven at 450°F.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Don't think I don't appreciate the advice... I know the mechanics but I don't have the gift.

My metric is... is it as good or better than my mum's?

For Yorkshire puds... I fail.

Fine. Hold yourself to an impossible standard. Dodgy Your mum's was probably heavenly.


The only real test is does it taste good.

RE: Self Indulgence
A self-indulgent day.

Why not? I was working all night.

Grabbed an hour's kip at lunchtime.

Then, 3 treats...
Manicure / pedicure
Massage
Haircut.

Pampering at its simplest and finest.

Ahhhhhhh.

I'd wager good money that if your Gwynnie appeared suddenly before you in the flesh rather in your dreams, you'd have a fuckin' heart attack.

That said, I can't think of a better example, for you, for self-indulgence.

Here, have some...
