    Reminds me of the Monty Python gag about the Spring Surprise (a chocolate covered spring that pops open in your mouth piercing both cheeks - SURPRISE!). I think they had a chocolate coated frog too - only it was a real frog.

    Now THIS is what I need! I got dreadfully ill once after drinking that awful pre-fab Pina Colada (don't laugh - I was about 21 & didn't know better). I don't think it was the alcohol, I think I had some tummy bug & it was just a coincidence. Fast forward to a couple of years ago same thing happened with red-wine - had a couple - got desperately sick with some gastro thing. I have never touched Pina Colada or red wine since. Now if I could just luck out & get some awful thing when I had just eaten a whole block of chocolate that would be awesome :)

    Mmmm the date thing sounds
    delicious. Figs AND dates sounds delicious. I make a thing with mashed very ripe banana, my own chopped pecan nuts :) chopped dates, sultanas & coconut. Mix it up & eat it off the spoon. Or if you were polite you could roll it into balls & dip it in coconut. I devised it once when I was trying very hard to get off sugar & gluten, but was ready to eat the table I had such awful cravings :) It's delicious :)

    The only thing better than eating this stuff is rolling naked in it. Life is good when there's chocolate in it!

    I have only been foolish enough to do anything of the sort once. Once was certainly enough. Chocolate is for eating, not rolling in, & not ... doing anything else with either :)

    No that was wishful thinking! Obviously an activity best enjoyed with a partner. :( Still not happening here.

    I don't have a pressure cooker (fondly remember my mum's though - the sound of the valve hissing meant food was not far away!). But I did have beans for dinner - along with some pieces of goat, and home grown leeks and tomatoes. Feeling comfortably full now...

    I had goat bits on the bone from the organic butcher that I fried off in some oil with the leeks, then tossed in several handfuls of black cherry tomatoes, half a cup of dried borlotti beans, a stock cube, a bay leaf and some water and let it simmer for a hour and a bit. It wasn't pretty but it sure tasted good! The goat fell off the bones and was lovely and tender.

    haven't ever had goat (that i know of! :) ), but i'd try it. sounds good!

    as this is the warm food season coming on here i cooked up the reject beans the other day and have a small pot ready. the past few nights i've made a grilled cheese sandwich open faced and then piled on the beans and then hit the top with some chili sauce i had left-over from earlier in the week. the side was home made apple sauce. i'm now out of chili sauce, so i'll have to figure something else out for the zip/zing.

    If you didn't know it was goat you'd think you were eating lamb. It's been hard to find locally, but after regularly asking for it in every butcher shop I frequent for years, most of them are starting to stock it.

    As we are talking uses for a pressure cooker;

    -food
    -bombs
    -distillation

    stainless steel pressure cookers make fantastic home made stills. look up the instructions on you-tube :)

    make your own hooch for under $100 dollars.

    Once you have had a pressure cooker explode shooting lentils on the ceiling you will never use one again. All the fail safes failed and lid blew off sailing at high sped through 2 rooms luckily not hitting anyone.
