    Thanks, it was nice and an easily prepared quick tea (I had a glut of eggs that needed using) & the ribs were great if maybe a little overdone?

    Spag looked good, sometimes I just have pasta tossed in a good extra virgin oil and a little grated parmesan, another quick meal

    Yeah, defo. Next time try replacing the EV olive oil for a generous knob of (best quality) butter, stir through, then simply grate some ground black pepper and fresh Parmesan on top

    'Angel hair' spaghetti is particularly good for that purpose. This stuff (comes in little 'nests' and doesn't need much cooking): https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cecco-Capel...a-869434783620

    Try using Continental-style butter, such as President (slightly salted), as it's lighter and generally less salty than British types. and which works better with pasta: https://www.ocado.com/products/presi...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Yes, I've used butter as well. I like the taste of Lurpak spreadable, it's a lightly salted butter blended with rapeseed oil. great on toast.

    But steak, no problem. Thought it might've been her homemade cannelloni, or ravioli with butter and sage

    Marco.
    yeah her pasta stuff would be good if the non wheat variety. Arla do a nice cheddar thats lactose free as well, although most old cheese like parmesan etc are very low in it.

    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    **Hate makes you impotent, Love makes you crazy. Somewhere in the middle you can survive.**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    Ah cool... I always thought it was a form of margarine, which I detest. Not sure I'd always want to have my butter infused with rapeseed oil, but I can see the attraction/convenience factor, with it always being instantly spreadable.

    I'm old-fashioned, so prefer traditional 'blocks' of (unmolested) butter. I only have a little a day with breakfast, so the fat content isn't an issue
