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.

    Made a paste of olive oil, garlic, ginger, pepper, salt, mixed herbs and rubbed it over a chicken from Morrisons, put in to roast in oven, part way added some Yorkshire puddings. Cooked rice with mixed veg, was delicious, stray cat had a bit of the chicken, didn't last it long!

    Think I might push the boat out tonight. Chicken nuggets, spaghetti hoops and instant mash. Yum!



    (just kidding, I'd eat it if I was hungry though )

    I'm a fan of instant mash, a bit of salt, pepper and butter, comes up quite nice.

    I don’t get instant mash.

    I realise that instant things are generally to save one time and hassle in preparing the real thing and some are very handy.

    However, peeling a few spuds, boiling them for 20 minutes or so and then mashing them is hardly an arduous slog and requires minimal culinary proficiency!

    I like the guaranteed result, potatoes can be so variable, I remember as a child, complaining that "this potato tastes funny", Mum would say, "put some salt on it".

    Oh dear, the least said about that, the better!

    You can guarantee the result gained from making mashed potatoes, *if* you know how to cook, and follow the same recipe (using the same quantity of ingredients) each time.

    We do ours with plenty of butter, a touch of cream and some ground black pepper, so that they're soft and fluffy, and taste gorgeous - and a MILLION miles away from the wallpaper paste, posing as 'mashed potato', you get with instant crap.... Sorry
