  1. I cook my plain rice in the microwave. I've cooked for 2 and 4 people using the same method. Put rice in tall sided tub. Add enough water to cover plus about 2cm over the top. Place lid loosely on top. Cook for 9 minutes. My microwave is 800 watts. Then leave for 4 minutes. Usually have some starchy water boil over onto the plate That works out at about 4p per cook. Perfect rice.
  2. Don't know why but I just had to listen to Roy Orbisons 'I drove all night' and 'you got it'. Reading the comments on YouTube made me tear up. Wtf is up with me?
  3. Thanks for the advice everyone. I guess I should try some fresh sheets and cut them. Maybe I can find a use for those bits in a rough and ready chunky sauce. I don't know. I'm not the most adventurous cook even though I trained for a couple of years. My family aren't always that willing to try new things so I cook a lot of the old favourites most days. I should make an attempt to do something new once in a while. This week will be fresh pasta sheets. Baby steps.
  4. Has anyone got a lasagne dish that actually fits lasagne sheets correctly? Their either too short and you have loads of space around the edge and you have a sloppy mess or the dish is too small and you have to surgically alter each sheet hoping it doesn't shatter into a million shards. I'm only talking about dry sheets. Should I be looking at fresh lasagne or are their similar issues there too?
  5. Thanks for this. I guess we won't bother then. Sake Nintendo.
  6. Probably been asked a million times in this thread but how long and how much of an effort is the island transfer. My wife wants to put our island on the switch lite so my son can play on the main console. But she might also want to move it back to the main console sometimes? Is this possible? Does it take a long time?

    Eat Soup

    Yeah, it's not the dislike of parsnip. More a dislike of the dominance of parsnip in a mixed item soup. A parsnip soup is fine.

    Eat Soup

    Yeah, this is a really easy way to get some real flavour out of some very basic and very cheap foods. Even better if you can chuck a tray of veg in the oven when you're already cooking something else. I'm with you on the no sweet vegetables in soup though. Parsnips and sweet potatoes just overpower everything else in there. We have been making a hearty meatball and pasta soup lately which my son really likes served with a buttered dinner roll. Nothing fancy, just used mini meatballs instead of big ones with some chopped veg, a can of tomatoes with stock and soup pasta.
  9. @Questthanks. That seems to be a similar experience to what I have had. Disconnecting when in handheld etc. Guess we'll have to carry on without it for now. Can't really afford another set of joycons atm. We have a switch lite to go outside as I don't trust my son not to break my delicate launch switch so it won't be too much of an issue.
  10. My son wanted to play let's go pikachu with the right joycon only to discover that it has no charge. Normally we play all other games with the pro pad so got no idea how long it's been flat. So my question is, is it likely to be the joycon or the switch? I don't really want to buy another set cos they're a bit crap, for every other game we use pro pads and he can get by with using the left one up until the point he wants to leave the game where we have to put the console to sleep, wake it and use the touch screen to get to home but if there is an easy fix then I am all ears. Help me rllmuk.
  11. Ultra thread resurrection... There was fuck all on telly as usual so I was just searching through the roku box and thought I'd have a look on the roku channel. There's a surprising amount of non shite on there but I spied a particular favourite of mine. Lexx and all 4 seasons of it too. I've started from the beginning and it's just so utterly gloriously wonderful. Camp, funny, stupid, just brilliant. Season 1 is tricky and can be oddly paced but it really kicks off in season 2 which sadly misses Eva Habermann for the majority of it. As long as you give the low budget style a chance, its got so much charm and its the antithesis of those serious but ever so dull sci-fi shows of that era. Anyone else seen this recently? Probably not...
  12. Thanks for announcing this. Been waiting for it to come down to a sensible price.
  13. Thanks @PKI haven't made it in a while but i have all the ingredients for it so maybe this weekend il whizz up a batch. I looked at this and thought maybe a spinach and ricotta cannelloni with some of the potatoes roasted alongside the aubergine and courgette. vegetable lasagne with cubed potatoes uses the onion, garlic, aubergine, courgette and maybe the spinach. You can make a batch of the sauce and freeze it so you only have to build the lasagne next time too. Serve it with a side salad and you've used most of the ingredients listed above.
  14. My son finished the main story earlier today after about 30 hours playtime. Really enjoyed seeing more of the gang and was a little emotional towards the end. Very much Zelda's legend. Certainly not to the level of the dlc ending of BOTW but then I think that was somewhat elevated by the huge amount of time spent enjoying the world. He's definitely going to be a musou fan after this though. I'm surprised the pro controller is still intact. If anything I think he's fixed the drift on the stick. Can't wait til BOTW 2!
  15. You really should buy it. It's tremendous. The story doesn't quite match that of botw but it's still good. Might the time travelling egg changes the course of history or something like that.
