Just now the sound of thumping paws heralded the high-speed arrival of the cat in the kitchen. Three seconds earlier I had opened a sealed pack of [raw] bacon.
Anybody got a syringe I can use to squeeze the magic smoke back into this?

And as it would be unfair to limit the taunting to just the cat:

So when am I invited for lunch?  :-DD

Edit: Just had chicken wrapped in bacon here. I didn't bother to photograph it but it looked roughly like this (from a previous meal) substituting the peas for stem broccoli

When I wouldn't have to boil you in alcohol and a side order of disinfectant first before letting you in the house. So, 2025?

Also a personal favourite, although I tend to use something like Black Forest Ham and serve it up in a Chasseur/Jaeger type sauce (onions, tomatoes and mushrooms, in theory things one could pick wild while hunting). Ideally add saute potatoes and something green.

I don't normally photograph my food, only when either you lot have made me hungry with tales of your meals, or when I think it might make someone salivate and probably call me a bastard.  :)

Mouser order. UPS 2nd day air. Delivered 15 minutes ago. 1115 hours. Right on time. On time delivery record is 100%.  :-+ :-+

Eat your heart out USPS.  ::)

Mouser order. Ordered Monday just before 09:00 UTC. Picked it up at the local package storefront 18:50 UTC today. I like this.

How about if I turn up with a James Bond style radiation suit, with a food hole?  >:D

(onions, tomatoes and mushrooms, in theory things one could pick wild while hunting)

Chives or hedge garlic are easier to find than onions.

Never seen wild tomatoes.

Seen, collected, and eaten many wild fungi, but I'm very careful about wild mushrooms. It is entirely possible to find death cap (Amanita phalloides) and destroying angel (Amanita verna) in the same locations - and at some stages they look dangerously similar. They kill you unpleasantly as well: you get ill for 24 hours, recover, and then die a few days later when your  liver gives out.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.

Alright, that's it, it's after 4:00 PM.  My Newark order arrived at lunchtime and I'm now off the clock and on vacation.  Let the fun begin.

It does not matter if you eat any of the Amanita thingies, even if they look similar.

Best to give wild mushrooms a miss in my opinion.

Nice try but no cigar, they have plenty of Avo batteries.

Just bought two, so yes. My previous one was manufactured May 5, 1971 and is, say, a bit out of breath.

Yeah a bit, but most aviation enthusiasts wouldn't complain even if they had to build one from scratch as long as we could see it in the air at air shows in the future. The same goes for steam locomotives such as the recently built Tornado locomotive, built from scratch and first moved on its own in 2008  https://www.a1steam.com/

Tornado, TBH, was never supposed to be anything other than a new-build. Neither is Prince of Wales by the same people or the BR 3MT No. 82045 by the foundation with the same name (stationed at Bridgnorth MPD) described as anything else than building another one of their respective classes. They just had a 60+ year hiatus in the production line...  :-DD

Never seen wild tomatoes.

I'm just really citing the classic justification for the name. I've seen wild onions (very pretty little purplish flowers), I've seen a lot more of the other assorted alliums wild and I've seen lots of mushrooms. The only 'wild' tomato plants, feral tomatoes I guess, that I've seen have been growing at sewage works - I'll leave you to work out the life cycle yourself. Real 'wild' tomatoes are small and, in Europe anyway, must be escaped cultivars.

Wild onions:

So rather like drinking Green Chartreuse?

Not our field mushrooms though, some years we have buckets of them to share around friends.

Stemmed, caps peeled and fried until partially crispy in butter.....yum !  :)
