As a child on a visit to my Uncles house I had a large Sunday roast and 48 specially cooked Yorkies as I was still hungry.... All with gravy  ;D

When I was a student in the early 80's vegetarians were pale and rare and vegan were pale and ill... A housemate decided he would do a lentil stew with beetroot in the pressure cooker, but enough to last a long time... The lentils bunged the pressure relief valve so when it finally blew there was red gloop dripping from the ceiling, the walls, the light fittings. It looked like a cheap gore fest horror movie  :o

Another time me and the girlfriend made a steam sponge pudding, but used salt instead of sugar as we used the wrong container of white granular food stuff. It was vile but another housemate and her boyfriend ate it anyway...

Been sick from eating chips too fast, and rice... but never from over eating, although I have wished I could be a few times!
Had a whole Victoria sponge hot from the oven while it was on the cooling rack - burnt my mouth but so tasty <3
My Dad and Uncle at one family meal split a steam sponge pudding between them, leaving nothing for the rest of us - so shocked and disappointed!

I remember when many years ago, we were staying at The Sunday School in LLangattock, and the well-meaning mother of a caver had kindly prepared a chilli (IIRC) for us to heat up when we got there. She also supplied a large bag of rice, which she felt would complement her dish. None of us had a clue how to cook rice, so we just bunged it all in a big pot & put it on to boil. Not appreciating how much it swelled...

We ended up filling as many pots as we could find in the place and ended up feeding most of it to the chickens who used to wander about outside. The rice wasn't properly cooked, so after a while the poor hens began to look rather bloated and slow. I don't think we actually killed any, but they weren't very well.

No one fancied the Vagina sponge cake advertised on the chalk board at the fountains cafe in ingleton once upon a time.

That sounds lovely - if there's still a recipe card knocking around I'll have a go. Sounds like a job for Stork, but watch out for those sticky fingers:



What...?  :shrug:

Yorkshire pudding have traditionally been eaten either savoury or sweet.

Best with savoury vinegar (either blackberry or raspberry) and lashings of sugar.  Can also be eaten with lemon juice and sugar, similar to pancakes.

This thread was brought to my attention and felt necessary to make my findings known...

Warning - Tesco's "Wicked Purple Rice"

Think that this can't taste as bad as it looks? Think again - want to know what "wrong" tastes like? Bored? Go for it - will remain the worst thing I've put in my mouth until such time as I'm incarcerated in Pirate Jail.
