I have a chilli ready for dinner but it's too hot for the children... No yoghurt, cream it anything to cool it with, but I do have half a jar of ready made sweet and sour sauce to use up.... If I stirred it into their portion do you think this would make it nicer for them, or disgusting beyond words?

Put it, nay, hurl it in the bin.

Unspeakable product, unspeakable idea.

Have you got any milk and/or cheese in the fridge, that would cool it down?

Otherwise what moondog said.

Sounds gross. Don't do it.

Lizzylou Wed 26-Aug-09 16:49:47

Ooh no, please don't!

Add some more tomatoes and a pinch of sugar?

disgusting beyond words

Add milk. Add cheese. Even just some stock. Not sweet and sour sauce.

what about cheese

FimbleHobbs Wed 26-Aug-09 16:58:09

Oh a mixed response then ;)

thanks, I knew it would be wrong but this is what that lovefoodhatewaste thing has done to me, I try and use EVERYTHING up even the stuff we should never have bought in the first place!

Will add tomatoes and sugar and serve with
lots of cheese. And won't ask my husband to make a child friendly chilli again as he is just too enthusiastic with the spices!

Cor blimey, that would taste......envy<-- 'tis a <vom> face.

Can you not just give them something else?

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 26-Aug-09 16:58:43

Don't do it.

It will be vile.

Let the kids try it as it is.

Can't you make a greater quantity of rice and then stir a small amount of the chilli through? Then it's more like a savoury rice.

Worth also stirring a bit of tomato ketchup in it, as this will add more tomato and the sweetness. Or a tin of baked beans.

Sweet and sour sauce has to be the most disgusting, artificial, additive-filled, nutritionally bereft, foul tasting ectoplasm about.

Go get some sour cream to mix through or give the kiddies summat else.

Serve with sliced bananas and lots and lots of rice?
