    In these days of not wanting to waste stuff, wanting to save the planet etc, I thought I’d try and come up with some ideas to save money and the climate.

    First one: I think it would be a good idea if sweet-corn became a staple food. That way, when it passes through undigested, it can be collected and re-used by the believers in climate change etc.

    Since I hate sweetcorn, I’ll be unable to take part in this one, but feel free to let me know how it goes. And goes…

    Isn’t sweetcorn strange the way it reacts on certain bowels? I love fresh corn on the cob and eat it with butter or bertoli and have no problems with my digestion system whatsoever, however, if I get some of that tinned sweetcorn in my diet, either in a salad or just as a veg, within thirty minutes I am “pebble dashing ” the toilet bowl, for want of a better expression. How weird eh? Just thought I would share that little Jem with you all.

    Never eaten it since an episode on a campsite in Palamos, where my best mate and I walked to the local market, 11 we were.
    We bought ears of corn, couldn’t wait and ate them, unwashed, on the way home.
    He was lucky, I got a tummy bug and pebble dashed several campsite toilets from both ends that night.
    Makes me nauseous now.

    I believe some people have an aversion to whisky for similar reasons.

    Here’s a suggestion for #2.

    You know how store’s own brand lager is like piss-water. Well why not save ££££s by cutting out the brewing process?

    Urine + H2O = Tesco Biere d’Alsace.

    Apparently US companies like Budweiser and Coors have been doing it for years!

    Dishwater + gravy = ‘real’ ale.
    Beardy geeks lap it up!

    ‘Dishwater + gravy = ‘real’ ale.’

    Beats dipping cheese and onion sarnies in to gravy like I-A said he did.

    I’ll have a nibble DM, actually it was my Mum’s gravy that had gone cold and it was excellent when a cheese and raw onion sandwich was dipped into it. May I point out you never tried the said sandwich dipped in my Mum’s cold onion gravy so you are in no position to make an accurate comment on the taste compared to dishwater + gravy = real ale. However I believe several pints of real ale then followed by the sandwich in the cold gravy would be outstanding, it certainly was after a few pints of Barnsley bitter.

    I’m feeling a bit queasy again I-A. Have you tried and perfected your mum’s old recipe? What was her secret?

    Sadly Mum took the gravy recipe to her grave DM, if you pardon the pun, however I do believe such fine dining is definitely a younger man’s game, after several years on lansoprazole I think my cheese and raw onion sandwich dipped in cold onion gravy days are over. I will stick to buttered crumpets covered in Bovril, a fine edition to tasty snack town.

    I’m a big fan of crumpets with marmite but never tried bovril on them. Might give it a go! Strictly Warburtons crunmpets though. I’ll the others pale in to comparison now, not worth bothering with.

    Chip fat (cold solid fat rather then the veg oil type) spread on sliced bread was a regular delicacy after a heavy drinking session in my student days. Credit to my Barnsley mates who had an aversion to any form of healthy lifestyle!

    Bovril on crumpets is mega DM, Marmite is but a mere pretender to Bovril although I have Marmite with cheese in a sandwich sometimes ( again Bovril and cheese is better IMO ). When you have it on crumpets, lightly butter then apply Bovril liberally so before you finish the crumpets it has soaked through the base and is ready to be mopped up off the plate with the remaining crumpet base. Tis fine dining fit for the Queen herself and I recommend this tasty snack to all.

    As for some of the detritus some put on their food, I’m in full agreement with NI.

    Plain speaking Yorkie’s, so, Alcazanupf could save a few quid by cancelling his internet subscription.

    You should give some of my culinary delights a go TW before you rush in to condemn, never had you and NI down as namby-pamby eaters, get your backbone into gear and give it a go.

    Bovril is too salty for my taste, and I only ever have salt (with vinegar) on fish and chips, haddock of course, no cod muck!

    Alcy is saving £££s by cutting and pasting from dodgy Facebook accounts instead to doing the writing himself.
