Slater, get real, man!

Jen and I watch a lot of cookery programmes on telly (although, being from Yorkshire, Jen tends to refer to them as cooking programmes). Last night, we watched a recording of one of Nigel Slater's Christmas specials, in which he improvised a meal called bauble and squeak (do you see what he did there?) from leftover goose, ham, pumpkin and roast potatoes.

Jen and I watched in open-mouthed incomprehension.

Who in God's holy name has ‘left-over roast potatoes’? And eight left-over roast potatoes at that!

  1. Yes, I had a chuckle at that too.... Left over roast parsnips... He lives in a different universe...

  2. Hummm...

    My wife picked up our Goose and Gammon from the butchers this morning. We also have a brace of pumpkins sitting in the garage looking almost entirely unlike motor-vehicles. The Myans may not be that hot on predicting the future but Nigel Slater is starting to look pretty prophetic from this angle! Now, about those roast potatoes....

  3. I have a term for left over Brussels sprouts....I call them compost.
    Actually, the same term applies before Karen starts cooking them!
