At least I had an excuse today as I was making sponge cake, nut roast and brownies all at the same time. I'm just hoping I didn't put curry paste in the brownies. I'll have to taste one later to check.
And I must stop working in ounces. When I'm shopping and my recipe says I need 8oz nuts I have no idea how many grams that is, so I guess and allow extra just in case, and I always end up with far too much of everything.
I still work in gas too. So when I check a recipe for an oven temperature I read the gas mark and convert it to electric. Even when it's given in electric.
I was talking to an old man while waiting in the queue at the co-op this morning. I commented on the chocolate Father Christmases they had on display and he started talking about the old days and 'do you remember when kids were satisfied with something their father had made and a tangerine?'
'Um, no. I have come straight from exercise class so might look your age but I'm not that old.'
(I didn't say that; I just nodded.)
