With Lucan's comments on J2Blue's Salted Caramel post as well as some really good (and bad) foody posts and replies over the years, I have the impression quite a few of us fancy ourselves in the kitchen (in more ways than one im sure)
It has me curious, does anyone have any recipes they absolutely love and claim as their crowning achievement in the Kitchen? I'd love to find out more as I get the feeling a lot of us on here are foodies deep down
Despite initial concerns about some of Mick's signings over the winter, for the most part they didn't do too bad. Seems as we have hit decent form lately (I can hardly count Rotherham as that never would have been a full starting 11 if something was still to play for), the possibility of landing Huws, and some strengthening, McGoldrick and Sears coming back into form - We might not do too bad...
Or am I smacked up off me head on Salted Caramels and being too optimistic
As some of you know, I just bought lots of meat from an online hamper place, so to go along with this I bough a George Foreman grill - You know, the ones which help make health meals, but we ultimately use to make ham and cheese toasties occasionally once the novelty goes away.
Well part of my Vegetarian nightmare kit had these "Melt in the middle" burgers, a cheese and jalapeno mix, but come the end of the cooking it was more like, melt in the middle- buttttt- escaped all over the pan/grill plate.
Now, I know TWTD is the place to go should a burger related quandary arise, and as a result I thought it relevant to ask the fellow posters if there are any secrets to making melt in the middle burger work, or is this just another case of Chicken Kiev style utter disappointment which is aimed to titivate but not grace-my-plate (in one piece)
However I am in the camp of people who feels he and the club need to look at different directions in the summer. Mick's football isn't interesting or in my opinion worth the cost Ipswich charges, however it is probably the best formula for the squad that he had.
I am still very much in the mindset that the problems are higher up the hierachy of the club. The level of backing Mick has had vs his predecessors has been pitiful, despite having made the club the most on transfer fees.
I think Mick has to go for three reasons-
1. He is better than the level of support he is being giving, and the brass are quite frankly taking advantage of the situation, with Milne even taking a back handed swipe at him on a recent radio show in a lazy attempt to shift focus away from the club.
2. If town wants to provide us with '5 Point Plans' they need to have a manager in place who is proven working in such a structure. MM hasn't had the best track record with younger players, so it is almost impossible to imagine MM will suddenly conform to this plan.
3. We just need a new coat of paint. I think the only way to get season ticket numbers up, is to promise something different next year, and if such changes won't hapen in the board room, the next logical conclusion is that it has to begin with the head coach who controls what we see- regardless of if that brings better or worse results.
He seems to really be setting Aldershot onfire with his loan. I want to get excited, but I can't help but remind myself of Jack Marriott who were exciting us with his loan form, yet shown the door by Mick.
Do you think he is going to be given a chance here, or think he is just being given game time to stop potential unrest with the player before he is shown the door.
Seems as I mentioned him, Mariott had scored seven from 40 games including cup ties this year so has not be prolific this term by any means.
I realise I have been in the camp huffing and puffing about not getting a ST next season, I was on the fence for a while despite claiming the above. That is until the catchphrase "One of our own" on the renewal literature actually rubbed me the wrong way considering Evans and Milne are very much not fitting of the phrase "One of out own" when a lot of the changes to the club ticketing policies seems to alienate "Our own"
But hush now, that has been talked about across many posts and many posts more interesting than I could ever make about it.
The real issue is I have just realised my Saturdays next year will be inhibited in a huge way, no real way I can avoid my family. At first I considered getting a burrito every saturday and I was set, until recent posts highlighte din Ipswich I dont have this as an option either.
For others who are planning to take a break from their loved ones at portman road, what do you plan on doing to fill a saturday afternoon to escape the weekly grind? Any inspiration is welcome as I can only visit B&Q so often before the novelty expires.
It seems most of the Town players have drawn a degree of ire from us lot during the course of the season- so in contrast to that I am kind of curious who would people say are their top three town assets as players this year? (not including loanees)
For me it would have to be
1. Bialkowski - If Mick got a Mill for keeping us up, then surely Bialkowski is due a similar payday, without him, we would have been further up the creek
2. Webster - Stepped up the leagues really well, shame he didn't get chance to pair up with Smith most of the season as I think they will work well together
3. McGoldrick - Although he's not scoring a whole lot, he has really be decent in the creating chances department- the odd few chances we create.
I understand that times change, and so does the way we consume media, but one thing that really has irked me is the rise of trashy news sources like Buzzfeed; basically sites that start as click bait grabbers to get ad revenue, then suddenly come out as a “legitimate news agency”
Now before you think “Woah there Trump Jr” I am not a supporter of his philosophies or him, quite frankly I find him vile and dangerous; though I do despise this kind of media and news agency. After spending a lot of time on the BBC website as my go to for “impartial news” I have noticed that more and more the website's look, regular quizzes, repulsive “things we love” features, and most horrible- anything under the BBC 3 banner, rise of using animated gifs as story reactions, and not to mention a few instances when BBC and Buzzfeed have investigated issues together.
Long story short, I really don't trust the BBC website or its reporting anymore, and was curious if anyone else feels they look to be devolving more and more into a sort of Tabloid style of journalism. -KJ
