The cake looks delicious! Any idea what happens to the caffeine in coffee when you bake it in a cake? I'm just curious - you could obviously use decaff - as I generally avoid caffeine from about lunchtime.

This is a jolly good read if you’re interested in how teenagers cope with Ramadan fasting.

Sandwiches. I'm not convinced by some of these . Surely the whole point of a sandwich is that it's quick? Some of these are definitely not.

I like the thought that you might just have some white sauce in your kitchen :roll:

Reminds me of all those articles and even whole books on how to make interesting packed lunches that demand you spend an hour of your precious evening cooking a 4 portion dish, completely ignoring that the problem for most of us is we are only packing for one, and prep time is used up on dinner

:lol:.
I learned in the USA that a sandwich could be a serious meal taking time, effort and especially sourced ingredients - and very good they were. The trouble with the article is suggesting that most of them could be made quickly - and with ingredients you have lurking!

i understand that katsu is the Japanese for crumbed and fried chicken or cutlet not the curry sauce that often covers it

Don't fancy panko crumbs in a smoothie ;) and I really dislike that Japanese curry sauce - ir fir that matter the version of brown sauce they also offer you in London Japanese restaurants

It's wear & tear dependent with some people - or a zealous surgeon!!

Poor guy, good luck!

Wasn't his mother quite arthritic ? I suspect they have those joints

He's 54 - they used not to "do" your hips until you were 60 or even 65 because there was a concern that the repair might not last as long as you did, and they didn't like doing it again as the old repairs damaged so much bone, but it's a much more slick, lasting and repeatable op now. I saw my friends fresh scar a couple of years back, was surprised what a neat little thing it was

I really dislike that Japanese curry sauce

The Japanese apparently learned to love curries thanks to the British Navy. How their particular version became so sweet, I don´t know; I´d imagine it´s just a local flavour thing!
