The Mumsnet Degree

(109 Posts)

A dead cert would be; The Life and Works of Jilly Cooper.

So if there was a degree in Mumsnet what would you put on the syllabus?

Yes, but you lose out in a first as you are giving children under 22 years old chocolate, that is too early grin

am now very hungry envy

Guests for dinner tomorrow. Today I have made (from scratch) ahem, (drum roll) are you ready?

Lemon Mascarpone ice cream
Little meringue nests
Lemon and orange syllabub
Lasagne (for the kids)
Little potato and cabbage rostis
Slow-braised belly of pork (to roast fast tomorrow for the best crackling)
A spicy chilli and ginger marinade to go on an Asian Duck salad

Tomorrow I shall be dipping strawberries in melted organic dark chocolate, to garnish my meringue/syllabub thingy, and cutting lettuce, coriander, mint, baby radishes and spring onions from my own veg patch to go with the duck thingy.

Not only is my meal home made, it's largely home grown. (didn't kill my own pig or duck though.)

Can I have my first degree hours in MN domestic no-additives smuggery please?

aibu to use shop bought organic wholemeal flour rather then growing and grinding it myself in a windmill built with fair trade woven lentils??

remeber, the outcome of the post is not the inportant part of the process, they taste so much better when you can tout culinary superiority on the web.

If I sign up for another degree I will go insane and DH will leave me.

After being here for 5 years I needed training for the TTC threads. Totally different language over there. Compulsory course for those beginning parenthood.

We could have guest lecturers...
Bonsoir could run a workshop on 'Why the French way is best'.

Dittany could run one on 'Men and their failings'.

Yes, but it's far too academic for me. I'm only grade 4 CSE in Conflict. I'm PHD level in conflict resolution though.
