    Freezing food that says "not suitable for freezing".

    I think I know the answer but........ I buy Aldi chicken curries and freeze them (as per instructions). A few weeks ago I noticed a new/different type so bought one and froze it. Yesterday, when checking, I read (tiny print)....."not suitable for freezing". Can I assume that is more like advice...

    Food flask recommendations

    Afternoon all, it's that of year (cold, wet and Christmas) I have an Aldi food flask (it's kind of ok) but I was wondered if there is an upgrade worth having. I see the thermos are pricey compared to my current model and reviews seem hit and miss. Anyone have something they wouldn't be without...

    Taking the flexitarian road?

    Did not realise the word existed but I realised I am becoming one. More plant based than meat. Still love my steaks and fry-ups. Not into raging ethics or philosophy but for health and environmental reasons. Discovering lentils some time back helped with the re-direct. The price of plant based...

    How do I stop my microwave smelling of Sweet & Sour ping food?

    Fast food, becoming a ripoff ?

    Into town early yesterday, to hopefully miss the crowds, fancied a snack mid morning, popped into MacDonalds for a sausage bacon and egg McMuffin and a couple of hash browns. Tea later that day cooked a 12oz sirloin (cut in half, enough for both of us), 2 packs of stir fry, some egg noodles and...

    Would you queue for McDonalds?

    BBC link. I am really beginning to worry about the human race, in particular residents of Britain. Huge queues to get to a McD's drive-thru? Get a grip, you lazy, stupid, sad, selfish nobbers!

    3-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal ... cookies?

    Dropped on this recipe the other day and was struck by how good a source of energy they might be for a quick cycling snack: View: But don't think 'cookie' as in crumbly or biscuity. These are more akin to those chewy, fruity bars ... but with oats. Really easy to...

    Food miles

    How far he's your food travelled? I've just eaten the last of my pack of dates. They were grown in Chile, packed in Turkey and sold in Northampton UK. That's an (approximate) minimum distance of 10,000 air miles, an unknown number of road miles, plus a 3 mile walk to the Favel Tesco, and back.

    App for keeping a food journal

    Can anyone suggest a good app for keeping a food journal on iOS? I'd really like to be able to log a weight/quantity of each ingredient and have it add the totals up for me. e.g 40g of oats, 15g sultanas, 1 slice of brown bread, etc I'd also like to be able to see how many Kcals and nutrients...

    England : London Sunday London Ride: Ghost Signs Chapter 2: 5 May CANCELLED

    This is a follow on to the ghost sign tour we did in 2015 which mainly toured some of the better ghost signs south of the river. This time, we head north - scary for some, comforting like a well worn saddle for others. But well worth it for some excellent pieces of history. Subject to final...

    Changing tastes in food

    I remember years ago hearing that your tastes change and that food you dislike can become something you like. I'd always thought that was a right load of old bollox, but realised tonight that I was eating food I would not have not too many years ago. That is all.

    Camping food recipes

    I don't know if this has been done before or in the correct forum but here goes. There is no doubt that when touring there is bound to be a time that I would have no option but to wild camp. I wouldn't really want to build a campfire but I would have to eat so a camping stove would be a better...

    Dehydrating food?

    So some people like gels when riding, some like flapjacks, some just stop and buy a sandwich etc... Does anybody dehydrate food? I have a cheap little food dehydrator I use mainly (rarely) to make beef Jerky (as the shop bought stuff is so expensive and tastes crap tbh) - and I find...

    Food and Drink Pairings

    @Tenacious Sloth mentioned onver in mundane about "Chinon Blanc and Cadbury’s Whole Nut chocolate" being a good pairing. It got me thinking about my discovery of White Toffee Bonbons and Budweiser Budvar, but probably other similar Bavarian beers. In Russia, whilst hitchhiking, the children of...
