I like cooking but I am not very good at it. Most of my cooking is ready meals. I can do cakes but I haven't done anything for ages.

Eska 14-03-2019 06:31 PM

I don't drink tea either, or coffee.

I've been making chocolate brownies recently, haven't really nailed it yet though.

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 06:32 PM

Victoria sponge is yummy!
My favourite was chocolate brownies

Nothing wrong with ready meals!

I am quite good at cooking I think

nonperson 14-03-2019 06:37 PM

I hate cooking.

And I'm not really much of a baker... but I can make a wicked mug cake. =)

Eska 14-03-2019 06:39 PM

Ooh that sounds good np.

nonperson 14-03-2019 06:40 PM

I was going to make one tonight but don't have any Nutella. =(

Eska 14-03-2019 06:45 PM

Oh no :( What else do you need? I'm tempted to make one now...

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 06:48 PM

I've never made a mug cake!

nonperson 14-03-2019 06:50 PM

Typically flour, sugar, butter, milk, melted chocolate and an egg... which I do have. The nutella is essential for the hot melty chocolatey centre though.

tamobhuuta 14-03-2019 06:50 PM

What's a mug cake?

nonperson 14-03-2019 06:50 PM

Oh Beckie you are missing out!

nonperson 14-03-2019 06:50 PM

A cake made in a mug and cooked in the microwave in like... 2 minutes =D

tamobhuuta 14-03-2019 06:54 PM

That sounds awesome

nonperson 14-03-2019 07:01 PM

It really really is.

not_so_insig 14-03-2019 07:03 PM

Blooming Brexit taking over TV. I want to watch eggheads godamit

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 07:06 PM

Mug cake sounds epic!

Im so sick of brexit now

Eska 14-03-2019 07:07 PM

I almost bought eggs today but then didn't. Tactical error!

That's unfortunate Dawn.

tamobhuuta 14-03-2019 07:08 PM

I'm watching Friends. Rachel just had her baby.

nonperson 14-03-2019 07:10 PM

Eska, I have an egg free recipe too!

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 07:16 PM

Im watching doctor who

Eska 14-03-2019 07:25 PM

Np you do?

Beckie, which series?

Tamo, I'm on a much older series I think - Phoebe is pregnant with the triplets.

tamobhuuta 14-03-2019 07:27 PM

That's very old Eska.

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 07:29 PM

The series with peter capaldi

Eska 14-03-2019 07:33 PM

Yeah, they're on Netflix so I've been gradually watching them through.

Beckie I haven't seen any of that series - is it good?

not_so_insig 14-03-2019 07:35 PM

I fancy making a cake now but I don't have any milk. I had workmen in my flat on Monday and Tuesday. They had cups of tea so therefore used my milk.

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 07:56 PM

It is pretty good
I like peter capaldi

Had my roast
I am stuffed now!

zombiehunter 14-03-2019 08:03 PM

I'm having fish and chips for ****ing dinner :-D

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 08:04 PM


Eska 14-03-2019 08:04 PM

Sounds good zombie

zombiehunter 14-03-2019 08:07 PM

hi coco and eskamo :-D

tamobhuuta 14-03-2019 08:07 PM

I thought Peter Capaldi was a good Doctor but I love him more as Malcolm Tucker.

Buttons. 14-03-2019 08:11 PM

Hello all :)

zombiehunter 14-03-2019 08:11 PM

*presses buttons*

one_step_closer 14-03-2019 08:18 PM

My head hurts!!!

I ordered a bracelet with mine and my twin's initials on it, it was really nice with stars, and it came today but broke within an hour of putting it on. I've been searching online forever trying to find something sturdier but can't. Head annoyed!

tamobhuuta 14-03-2019 08:19 PM

Really sorry it broke, could you afford to have it fixed?

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 08:21 PM

That sounds lovely lindsay, what a shame it broke :(

one_step_closer 14-03-2019 08:26 PM

I think the chain is way too fragile, for me anyway. It's really thin.

It's very pretty though with our birthstone on it too. Wish I could keep it.

Buttons. 14-03-2019 08:31 PM

Well that sucks Lins, what a beautiful bracelet. As others have said is there no chance of fixing it? Sometimes little places that do things like key cutting or watch repair will mend chains on jewellery.

one_step_closer 14-03-2019 08:32 PM

Do you think it's possible to make the chain a bit stronger or something?

Buttons. 14-03-2019 08:37 PM

The only solution I can see would be to (carefully) remove the stars and birth stone charm from the original chain then thread them onto a different thin but much stronger chain say from Argos or somewhere, that's what someone helped me do with a piece of jewellery that needed a stronger chain.

one_step_closer 14-03-2019 08:39 PM

I'll maybe try and go into a jewellers who do repairs. Thanks. :-)

How's everyones evening going, minus cake?

tamobhuuta 14-03-2019 08:41 PM

L made us proper chips!

Buttons. 14-03-2019 08:41 PM

No problem :)

I'm okay thanks. Listening to the dog snore through watching Brexit on the news and thinking she has the right idea :P

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 08:41 PM

Thats so beautiful lindsay
Hope you can get it sorted

I am still stuffed from my roast!

Buttons. 14-03-2019 08:42 PM

Oh what meat? Sounds nommy.

one_step_closer 14-03-2019 08:42 PM

Like fresh chopped up potato type chips? In the oven? Yum.

Yeah, I think the dog definitely has the right idea. Best watch something more interesting.

one_step_closer 14-03-2019 08:43 PM

When are you going to invite us all over for a roast Beckie?

not_so_insig 14-03-2019 08:47 PM

Did you have stuffing Beckie?

Cacoethes 14-03-2019 08:50 PM

I had chicken
Roasted with italian herbs!

I would happily cook a roast for us all!

Yes I had stuffing dawn!

The only thing with chicken is that im now going to worry it was under cooked and I'll get food poisoning even though I checked it thoroughly!

Buttons. 14-03-2019 08:51 PM

Chicken is nommy, I'm sure you'll be just fine Beckie :)

The stuffing on the other hand *pulls face*
