I don't think they were branded. I got them from Heron. £1 for four.

They aren't in my mouth yet, but I've got two ripe avocados downstairs which I'm going to make into avocado and marmite toast sandwiches for my Saturday breakfast, (Very thin slice of cheese melted in each sandwich, the thinnest slice you can cut, cos it's avocado and marmite toast not cheese on toast with avocados and marmite).

Actually I feel like having them right now, and then going to bed about 3am and not waking up till midday when breakfast is a thing of the past.

Ironically I woke up at 3am with an appalling migraine, and although I felt a bit better by breakfast time, I didn't want my avocados :bawl:

You really should've'd placed one in each cheek like a skwrl and let them dissolve in your mouth overnight though.

I had them for tea instead. But fate was to deal me one last cruel blow. One of the slices of toast/avacado/marmite/cheese slipped off the spatula and fell down the side of the cooker :bawl:

All I could do was make an extra slice of plain cheese on toast and use that instead (I generally make 6 slices of t/a/m and put cheese on 3 of them, then put the cheese-free ones on top of those to make 3 two-slice toast sandwiches).

I was going to put fish-slice, cos that's what I call it, but (a) I was afraid that was an old-fashioned expression nowadays, and (b) I didn't want to use 'slice' twice in the same sentence.

Well, I think I knew you meant the wide squarish fish slice instead of an actual spatula (resembling a long, flexible old fashioned butter knife?).

Most people call a fish slice a spatula these days I guess.

Not that you're "most people" Lady Countess, but really, who actually uses a proper spatula these days?

And what were they ever used for for Heaven's sake!?

Fl*pping pikelets!? :dunno:

Or blinis? :crazy:


However, why were you using a fish slice?

Were these sarnies being fried or some other kind of culinary hoodoo? :sly:

It's something I've recently started doing, because the sandwiches get too hot under the grill to turn over with my fingers. There was a horrific incident where I spent so long trying to turn one over, that the other got burnt.

So I took to using a fish-slice to withdraw them from the grill, take them to the eventual serving plate, turn them over there, and return them to the grill to do the other side.

It was all going fine till today's disaster.

Very complex process making these - you have to (1) lightly grill the outsides (if you don't, the insides collapse when buttered), (2) lightly grill the insides to make them stiff enough to add the filling, (3) add the butter, marmite and avocado filling, (4) lightly grill, (5) add cheese to 3 of them and finish grilling, (6) withdraw from grill and combine into sandwiches, (7) grill tops, (8) grill bottoms, (9) allow to cool.

Then eat!

I've just had 3 avocado and marmite toast sandwiches, without dropping any of them down the side of the cooker :happy:

I always drop peas down the side of my cooker and then they roll under it and then I have to pull the cooker out to retrieve them. And then I have to pull the fridge out too because it's next to the cooker and they might have rolled under that too. Peas are the work of Satan. :bawl:

I leave peas where they are if they roll under something. They just dry out anyway.

In other news, I'm currently making a huge pot of stew. It features leeks, kale, carrots, swede, kidney beans and potatoes.

It's bubbling away on the hob right now.
