It's much the same way that we, when speaking in English, put 'an' before a word beginning with a vowel, as opposed to using 'a'.
As far as I can remember the word for beauty would be Aileacht or something similar.


I think it may have been me who derailed the thread.
It was innocent enough though....
I was talking about my potatoes that started growing out of the drawer and the food wastage issues involved with selling burgers in packs of 4 and buns in packs of 6.

Oh yes, I meant to get back to that.

Utter clownism. Same thing as sliced bread not fitting into toasters. There is a version of this same sort of incompatibility occurring in my job all the time , and it's a pain in the rocks.

Burgers also come in 8s and 16s. But bundys come in 6s and 12s. Screw that shit man.

I've also heard that it's annoying for meat-eaters to have to put round slices of ham onto square slices of bread in sandwiches. Very incompatible altogether.

It's so annoying to have to throw it out like that. I'll just have to eat more.

Just don't buy it. Coleslaw has to be one of the most revolting forms of food ever devised.
I would rather stick a needle in my eye than eat coleslaw.

Exactly!
I get so annoyed.
See I hate freezing the buns because the two sides get stuck together and when you try to pry them apart you end up breaking them.

I also agree wholeheartedly about coleslaw. Horrible stuff.
But I think a lot of places use too much vinegar in their coleslaw. I think they use it as a preservative....?

Really? I find the Tesco Finest variety to be quite creamy and tasty. The Weightwatchers stuff I do agree is quite disgusting. I avoid it like the plague. All that reduced fat makes for a very cutting flavour.

You end up with a dead bundy. Then someone has to go tell the bundy's mammy that bundy Jr. is no more.

It is tragic. The poor bundys.
I wonder how bundy's mother would feel if she learned that I regularly throw her unfortunate offspring's carcass out for the birds.

I suppose a bundy mammy's loss is a bird mammy's gain. All planned in the great scheme of things?

I won't comment on the religious aspects of the great bundy tragedy.

Don't eat more!! Darth has been through enough...

If you make your own (I'm beginning to sound like a broken record here), you can manage it much better. A quarter head of white cabbage which you can finely slice the required amount from, grate in your preferred amount of carrot, spoon in some of your favourite mayonnnaise (and you'll be surprised how little you'll need because the veg is relatively juicy, especially the grated carrots), a smidgen of tomato ketchup if desired and lots of freshly ground black pepper and you'll be eating coleslaw with a spoon as you read your MN Bookclub choice. I leave the cabbage pieces quite long and not too fine so there's a real bite.

It's far healthier than bought stuff, you've more control over the fat content, you can make as you go so there's less waste and the vegetables keep well in the bottom of the fridge - longer than from Monday to Wednesday. And you're not supporting the Supermarket that Dare Not Speak its Irish Profits. It also most importantly, tastes a gazillion times better than anything you can buy. And it's better value. You can grate in some white cheddar too if you like. Or you could use a splash of tabasco instead of the tomato ketchup if that's your thing.

The alternative is to make a Swedish coleslaw and this is really good (they eat it with pizza). Finely slice some white cabbage, put in a colander and dip into a saucepan of boiling water for a minute, no more. Rinse well under cold water. Shred a red pepper and toss the lot in a bag with some white vinegar of your choice - a small amount. You could splash in a tiny amount of olive oil too but go easy on the liquids, you really need very little. Season with freshly ground black pepper and salt and leave in the fridge in the bag for a couple of hours for the flavours to mingle. Really healthy stuff and flavoursome too. You could add slivers of fennel too and mix the lot through salad leaves for a sandwich. Great stuff.

My brother and sister both eat coleslaw on their pizza. And it's the normal coleslaw you buy in Tesco.
Really wierd.

I am going to offer two dumbed down versions of Kate P's delicious recipes for people who live on their own and can't cope with proper cooking, or who are drunk.

Hamburgers - take a small fist full of mince meat, roll it more or less into a ball, put it in a frying pan and squash it flattish with something - cook on both sides as much as you like and season to taste. If you have any spare mince roll it in more balls and stick it in the freezer until you need it.

Coleslaw - get a knife, slice a "round" off the side of a white cabbage and pour some of your favourite bottled salad dressing/mayonnaise on it. If you want to go a bit up market, you could chop it up a bit first.

Wash potato and stick it in the microwave. Cut open and add butter salt and pepper when its cooked.

This would not compare with EvM and Kate P's delicious recipes but would be a whole lot nicer and cheaper than any of the shop bought varieties.

The contents are fine - it's the thought of cleaning that fridge that worries me more...

... reaches for the rubber gloves and bread soda...

Effort. I'd just buy a new fridge. Much simpler.
