It's quiet in here...

Hello? (hello hello hello hello ...)

Kind of quiet in here for now, but I'm sure we'll soon get used to our new home, rearrange the furniture and get some pictures up. Many thanks Nik for carrying on this fine tradition.

It's all very well people making themselves at home, but I came back from work today to find all the dishes from breakfast sitting in the sink (unwashed) and crisps scattered all over the floor. If you are going to use this Forum please tidy up behind yourselves and leave it in the sort of state you'd like to find it in. OK?
On a slightly uncomfortable note: I sat down heavily on the sofa to watch Hollyoaks (well, someone has to) and received a rather sharp surprise in a very tender place from the carbon tiller extension which some bright spark had left behind. Please be a bit more considerate in future.

Have you seen outside? Nice work Nik, palm trees along the foreshore, 75F and nice little Force 4 coming over the dam. Must go Kristin Scott Thomas has nearly finished rigging my boat for me.

See you later,

Hello everybody, managed to find my way in to the shiny new forum...thanks Nik for all your hard work. A bit busy in the run up to Xmas at the mo. What chance is there of the Boxing Day race running do we think? I am happy to volunteer to stand or sit somewhere warm while setting a testing, icy course for anyone wanting to set out on (and I suspect it will be 'on') the lake

Post  Nik on Fri Dec 24, 2010 5:02 am

dear all
since you all look so forlorn sat there watching holly oaks I thought I'd share this recipe with you all.
Hic oops Nik

following: 1 C water 1 tsp. baking soda 1 C sugar 1 C brown sugar 4 large eggs
lemon juice 2 C dried fruit nuts 1 tsp. salt 1 FULL bottle of your favorite
whiskey > > Sample the whiskey to check for quality.
About 1/2cup of whiskey would be a good sample
Take a large bowl.
Check the whiskey again to be sure that it is of the highest quality.

Turn on the electric mixer.
Beat 1 C of butter in a large fluffy bowl.
Add 1 tsp. sugar and beat again. Make sure the whiskey is still okay, by having
another drink
Cry another tup. Turn off the mixer.
Break two legs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.
Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers,pry it loose
with a drewscriver.
Have another sup of whiskey to check for tonsisticity.
Next, sift 2 cups of salt. Or something. Who cares.
Check the whiskey again.
Now sift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.

lets be honest and just admit it we've all probably had too much vang tension over kst.and nik,after revamping the excellent site and being a published chef you've definately too much time on your hands. been up to the resevoir this morning which is making more than a passing resemblance to a dancing on ice spectacular. happy xmas to all
