I had pickled onions with it. And as I was putting the just-opened jar away I noticed that it had a Best Before date of 2nd October 2010. Best before for pickled onions? Surely the point of pickling is so that you can keep them? Load of nonsense.
And now I've got 2 trays of brownies cooking. I thought I'd better make extra as Younger Son and Girlfriend are now home too. As we all know, bowl-licking is calorie-free but as I was squeezing my tongue around the curves of the ladle Husband said, 'My mum never let us scrape the bowl. She said it gave you worms.'
Bowl scraping is one of the treats of childhood. I've done it all my life and I've never had worms. I bet she just said that so she could keep it all for herself.
