What a delightful, comforting, relatively healthy dish to cook in bulk.
Does anyone have any recipes or tips they'd be willing to share?

My staunch insistence that a £5 haircut and an illuminating chat about Daesh in SE13 is preferable to a £25 haircut and an asinine chat about Brexit in SW1, has, predictably, backfired spectacularly.
"Looks great, thanks."

Who on here has been summoned? If so, to what extent could you legally discuss your experiences? I am intrigued.

has rekindled in me a fascination in the American Constitution and system of government. Can anyone guess which US President created the most EOs? If you think about it, it should be obvious.

1. I'm enjoying it.
2. Dairy is harder to give up than meat.
3. Hangovers are hard as a vegan.
4. I feel fresh as a daisy.
5. I've lost half a stone.
6. People are annoyingly judgmental.
7. I'll definitely be cutting down on my meat intake after this.

Some personal tales of pros and cons, woes and joys, would be helpful in informing a decision whether to buy or not. Ta very much.

Genuine question - following the suicide thread, did you make any attempt to read up about mental health?
|NFL Week 17 & Early Playoff Prediction Thread|
at 15:09 27 Dec 2016
Apologies gents, it's been a while since I last posted a weekly NFL discussion thread!
My Redskins are in a 'win and in' situation at home to New York in Week 17, and I'm confident, especially given New York might rest some key starters at some point during the game. I think Green Bay are on a roll and will beat Detroit, which completes the Playoff Picture thus:
New York G
AFC Championship Game: New England 30-10 Kansas City
NFC Championship Game: Dallas 24-27 Green Bay
Aaron Rodgers is the best football player on the planet at this moment in time and I think GB get hot(ter) and go all the way to the Superbowl. A Brady Rodgers finale would cap off what I think has been a wonderful season.

Anyone going to join me?
I have a close Vegan friend who nudged me in this direction and I thought why the hell not? I would fail again if I tried Dry January, far too many commitments.
I'm intrigued as to how I will feel after a month of no meat or dairy. Hopefully a good kick-start to a far healthier 2017, anyway, as it will force me to keep a very close eye on intake and plan my meals meticulously.
EDIT - due to misunderstandings, thought I'd clarify some simple points:
- I've not said Veganism is healthy.
- I've not said Veganism is health-ier than any other diet.
- I've not even said that due to being Vegan for a month, I'll be healthier.
If you read the OP, you should be able to understand that, as explained in the final sentence, it's the practices involved in being Vegan for a month which will help force me into good habits, which will in turn 'HOPEFULLY' kick-start a healthier 2017 (which isn't even the primary reason I'm doing it).

Great account - cracks me up every time I see it on my timeline, and particularly pertinent this year I feel.

You only get one, with one alternate. I'll kick it off....
Chance The Rapper, Coloring Book.
Can't decide on the alternate yet.
|Awkward work situation|
at 08:39 22 Dec 2016
I joined my current client/account in November. My company has quite a large presence within this particular govt. department but my immediate team is small, just one woman from my mob running things and one lad (my age) working for her (and the addition of yours truly, now).
Anyway, yesterday was said bosses last day before the Christmas break and just before she got up to leave, the lad (who has been there since October) whipped out a bottle of fecking MOET and handed it to her right in front of everyone, offering her his "thanks for being such a GREAT BLOODY BOSS, Merry Christmas" (direct quotation). Completely unexpected by all, especially the boss, and more so me.
I look a right tw@t now.
