    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Ok, so.........
    Ok.

    So, I spent an hour preparing stuff for a casserole.

    Finally got it in the oven , and spent a while clearing up.

    After an hour and a half, I added more ingredients.

    After another hour, I went to get it out of the oven.

    As I was getting it out, the casserole dish slipped, and in trying to save it, I caught my hand on the hot oven shelf, the shock of which caused the dish to slip even more, and a load of the contents of the dish spilled onto the drop-down oven door, and into the oven, and under the oven, and onto the floor.

    Spent a few minutes with my hand under the cold tap, then wrapped it in wet kitchen towel to keep cooling it.

    Most of the 'bits' of the casserole were on the oven door, so I was able to salvage those, but then spent another half-hour cleaning up the liquid mess, but it will need another going over later.

    I decanted some of the casserole into a plastic box and heated it up again, to eat.

    And after all that, the casserole was horrible.

    And I have a very sore blister from the burn on my hand.


    I am not a happy bunny.

    Which is ironic, as it was a rabbit casserole.

    I was going to moan about my weekly ladies who lunch is turning into ladies who do Pilates but after your post Pyxis I feel bad moaning

    You need to get a slow cooker instead of casserole dishes in the oven and in Home Bargains you can buy liners for the slow cooker which saves on washing the crock pot. Testing one today I will let you know how it goes.

    Maybe go and buy a cake?

    Good idea, except there is nowhere nearby that does nice cakes.

    I might pop out and get some gin, though.



    As regards a slow cooker, I wouldn't use it often enough.

    And I've decided. I was on the verge for a long time, but this was the last straw. I was an ethical meat-eater of small quantities, but I am deffo turning 100% vegetarian.

    Stir-fries rule ok!





    Right........off out to gin-shop!

    Nothing really irritating me at the mo

    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    Well, I got some gin, and some Viennese biscuits, wot I quite like in the absence of anything better.

    Got home, and realised I'd forgotten to get some tonic.

    Oh well, neat gin it is then!

    The oven'll wait until tomorrow.
    In fact, it's needed a good going over for a while, so, do you know what? I think I'll get one of those firms in to do it.

    Just having that lot in town is causing heck on traffic & frankly the sooner they all empty their glasses & go, the better.
    That lot would be politicians, the media, the lobbyists, their security & everyone who came to take photos.

    I really do think it has run its course.

    Either that, or the show needs a new editor, as they seem to be making the same mistakes as they did last year, and the year before, and the year before that, and the year before that, and ..............

    More a rolls eyes sort of irritation but got something to eat earlier and this woman had 4 pre teen kids with her, whilst she was getting served the kids were jumping on the seats, standing on table, giving the middle finger to passers by and dropping rubbish on floor, then when the gran came back despite there being queues and people shoved into tiny tables she let 2 of the kids have a family table to themselves whilst she had her own and other two had their own so they took up about 18 spaces for 5 people!

    Ages ago I got some of the silcone edge protectors to stop me burning myself quite so frequently. They create a lip at the edge of the shelf, which makes it pretty much impossible to slide things out, and I ended up hurting my back trying to lift out a casserole dish...

    Pyxis - I hope your hand is better today.
    Casseroles are very over-rated but gin is an enduring classic!


    There is nothing worse than a pan falling off the stove, slipping get stuff out of the oven.
    there's the burn
    the mess
    the wasted time
    and the dismal prospect of the clean up


    so my heart goes out to you
