Food, Glorious Food!

Having a lazy (read: hungover) day, cruisin' around the various blogs I link to and making sure I catch up on those further down the list... yes, I must confess that I do not always manage to read all of them every day, so once in a while I will come across something a few days old and wish I'd seen it sooner so I could join in with all the comments. And so, in lieu of actually having anything to say for myself, I have shamelessly raided a couple of other blogs for ideas... so sue me!

First things first, whilst visiting Hungbunny I came across a new food product which I can only describe as jaw-dropping in it's sheer stupidity. I mean, how much of a cunt do you really have to be to buy a pre-prepared ready meal of... beans on fucking toast! As HB himself points out, he is not averse to "white trash food" but if you want beans on toast how hard is it to open a tin of beans, heat them up and toast some bread. This just takes laziness to a whole new dimension...

The other food-related item brought to my attention was picked up over at Emerald Bile, a story about a tuna fish whose scale colourings form a verse from the Koran. With the level of religious fervour surrounding this incident one has to wonder how long it will be before US scientists attempt to genetically modify fish for propoganda purposes... Just imagine the possibilities!

Cheers m'dears!

Jam on toast makes for a delicious breakfast, or dessert... however, should you wish something of a more savoury persuasion beans are the man! Especially with a dash of Jamaican Jerk seasoning thrown in and a sprinkle of cheese on top.

And they are good for you, too! Beans contain all eight essential protiens.
I expect we'll be seeing that tuna on e-bay.

beans, beans the musical fruit..
the more you eat, the more you toot..
the more you toot, the better you feel!
so eat beans at every meal!

(i'll take that one step further McShae, it's not that fucking hard to cook beans from raw. so canned or tinned beans are pretty fucking lazy as well.)

hmm the bestest hangover food there is, beans on toast with grated cheese and a dash of whorschester sauce, with cheese n'onion crisps for dessert.

When I was a kid, the rhyme was:

Heinz beans are good for the heart
The more you eat, the more you fart
The more you fart, the better you feel
So eat Heinz beans with every meal!

MacBean - they help you shit good too!

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah.... beans on toast REQUIRES tinned beans. It's tradition, or an old charter, or something. It's all in the sauce, you see... one particular brand (the most famous over here) is very guarded about the secret recipe of their sauce, which simply cannot be replicated by us mere mortals.

Bewildered, I must confess that Worcescescester sauce does fuck all for me. And I can't stand cheesy bunion crisps. Give me salt n vinegar any day of the week.

Kim, please.... if Heinz want to advertise on this site they have to pay me! You don't just give a huge company like that freebies!!

oh good god.. i love salt n' vinegar chips. over here Ms. Vickie's.. they are THE BEST. except Lays bought them out, so they will probably suck eventually.

and beans on toast is not a big thing here.. what sort of beans with special sauce?? like a baked bean? are they sweet or savory or both??

Kim is wrong!
The last line was
"so lets have beans with every meal"
This may sound odd, but beans were considered quite exotic in our house when I was younger.

The biggest baked bean factory in the world is in England.

used to live behind a tayto (irish crisps) factory, just as well I like them.

Sarah - http://www.heinz.co.uk/products/heinz_baked_beanz.aspx - this tells you all about the most popular brand of Baked Bean in the UK. It's a tomato based sauce, savoury yrt with a hint of sweetness...

Doc M - Aparently they were originally a luxury item in Fortnum and Masons, even though they are now pretty much found in every pantry across the UK.

Bewildered... I used to live next to a distillery.... 'nuff said.

Beans are an efficient form of food.
I like mine with mini weiners.

What is YOUR favorite form of beans?

I knew a girl once who had a strange obsession... she said she liked flicking them. Peculiar thing she was...

You'd think allah'd be kind enough to write "throw me back" on the fish's tail. That said, you know it was only a matter of tim., I wonder how long before he turns up on a tortilla.
