someone else needs to hide the veg then :P

nonperson 08-03-2021 07:17 PM

No it wouldn't. Chicken and vegetables have two very distinct flavours! I'd know =P

Saying that, I've just eaten so many strong salt and vinegar rice cakes that I probably won't be able to taste anything at all for a while.

Cacoethes 08-03-2021 07:33 PM

Haha! Fair enough! :p

Ooof I can never eat too many of those

nonperson 08-03-2021 07:37 PM

They're very moreish, but have made my mouth so tingly!

Cacoethes 08-03-2021 07:42 PM

I bet!
They are moreish though
I like caramel rice cakes

shadow-light 08-03-2021 07:42 PM

i like vegtables :laugh:

though they can be a faff

nonperson 08-03-2021 07:43 PM

I like broccoli at the moment. =)

I try to avoid the sweet rice cakes because I know I'd demolish the pack in one go!

Cacoethes 08-03-2021 07:47 PM

I too like vegetables!
Can never be bothered to cook them though!

Broccoli is yummy!

Yeah that is one bad side to them

nonperson 08-03-2021 08:03 PM

I usually just have frozen veg and microwave it, that's not too much effort but not always the best results.

shadow-light 08-03-2021 08:05 PM

frozen veg here too

I'd hugely prefer fress veg... but whenever I buy it I forget about it and it goes off... and when I try to grow it I forget about it and it dies... so ye...

nonperson 08-03-2021 08:15 PM

Yup, same problem here with fresh veg, although sometimes that is an incentive to use it because I don't want it to be wasted.

Growing it yourself does take a bit of extra work.

Cacoethes 08-03-2021 08:15 PM

I'm the same.
Unless I'm buying fresh vegetables for a specific recipe that I'm definitely going to cook

shadow-light 08-03-2021 08:16 PM

i grew up on a farm so growing it myself seems like the logical solution. It used to work, but now my brain is a troll

i used to love gardening, and cooking lol

nonperson 08-03-2021 08:17 PM

Hm, getting a craving for homemade vegetable soup now.

nonperson 08-03-2021 08:18 PM

I grow plants for a living, which in theory should make growing my own veg an easy thing but it's not, haha.

Cacoethes 08-03-2021 08:23 PM

I guess if you're doing it all day you don't feel like doing it at home!

nonperson 08-03-2021 08:27 PM

Sometimes it is that, yeah. Especially in the summer.

not_so_insig 08-03-2021 08:28 PM

I had vegetable soup for tea. With 2 barm cakes.

nonperson 08-03-2021 08:30 PM

Was it homemade in your soup maker, Dawn?

And why are they called cakes?! =P

not_so_insig 08-03-2021 08:32 PM

I dont know but that's what they're called.

Yes it was homemade in my soup maker. Am tempted to make banana milkshake in it.

shadow-light 08-03-2021 08:40 PM

you can make milk shake in a soup maker?

nonperson 08-03-2021 08:50 PM

Hot banana milkshake with a hint of chicken stock. Yum. ;-)

Cacoethes 08-03-2021 08:53 PM

I used to like making a banana milkshake with just a blender.
Bananas, milk, some ice cream, whizz it up and done!

not_so_insig 08-03-2021 09:29 PM

Yes my soup maker can make milkshake and juice as well as soup. I made an banana milkshake. It's nice and thick. Also yummy.

shadow-light 08-03-2021 11:01 PM


got to admit I am not 100% on what a soup maker is... i make soup using a pan on the hob and a hand blender

nonperson 09-03-2021 03:00 AM

I think it's basically a pan and blender all in one.

one_step_closer 09-03-2021 09:18 AM

NP what were you doing up at 2am? I hope you got some sleep.

Morning everyone, how are you all?

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 10:30 AM

Morning lindsay

I'm slightly worried about today.

How are you?

nonperson 09-03-2021 11:10 AM

I was going to bed, Lindsay. =P Had already been asleep on the sofa for a while though.

I'm cold... =(

What's happening today, Beckie?

tamobhuuta 09-03-2021 11:11 AM

What's happening today Cacoethes?

I took PRN last night but it didn't work very well.

I've got clozapine clinic this lunchtime.

tamobhuuta 09-03-2021 11:12 AM

Blanket or dressing gown time np?

nonperson 09-03-2021 11:14 AM

I'd love to wear a dressing gown at work but don't think it'd be appropriate!

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 11:18 AM

I have a meeting with the crisis team and my new cpn at my house later.

Shame that pajamas aren't appropriate for work np!

Hope clozapine clinic goes well tamo

Hmm you are probably right...

tamobhuuta 09-03-2021 11:34 AM

Cacoethes is it a check up or are things being organised?

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 11:35 AM

I'm not entirely sure.
Which is why I'm nervous

tamobhuuta 09-03-2021 11:39 AM

Good luck, hope they listen to you. I think you're doing well at staying safe, even though it is really hard.

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 11:56 AM

Thank you tamo

not_so_insig 09-03-2021 01:53 PM

Hello all. I got woken up by someone from the cmht phoning me at 9 am! She wanted to come at 9.30 am but I wasn't very coherent. Plus she called me by the wrong name.

nonperson 09-03-2021 02:15 PM

Are you sure it was you she was after?

not_so_insig 09-03-2021 02:33 PM

Yes because Dawn is my middle name and she called me by my first name. Also I have a call blocker and she announced herself from the cmht.

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 05:07 PM

Hey guys

shadow-light 09-03-2021 05:11 PM


Cacoethes 09-03-2021 05:27 PM

How are you?

tamobhuuta 09-03-2021 05:31 PM

Just popping by to say hi, I hope all your days are going ok.

shadow-light 09-03-2021 05:38 PM

honestly... not sure...

how you today?

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 05:41 PM

Hi tamo
Hope your day is going ok too

I'm the same really

one_step_closer 09-03-2021 06:21 PM

Crookshanks is patting me (with his claws out) to tell me he wants his dinner but it's not time yet.

Cacoethes 09-03-2021 06:32 PM

Ouch lindsay!

not_so_insig 09-03-2021 06:35 PM

My male taps me when he's hungry.
