Handy tip for cooking with strong nauseating smells!

In a state of sheer and total desperation this got me throgh a spag bol recipie, even if it doesn't work for you the senario might cheer you up. My husband has been so supportive that I wanted to make him his favourite dinner, whatever it took!!

1 - extract one pair clean pants from drawer
2 - lightly spray crotch area with nice smell
3 - place pants on head
4 - esure nice smelling bit is over nose
5 - adjust so eyes peek through leg holes

The one downside for me is that my first floor kitchen window faces onto a busy street with plenty of passing double decker busses and I don't have curtains.

Or you could just find someone to cook for you

Awww Daisy!!!

We've been going with...

1 - open drawer
2 - extract takeaway menu
3 - dial number
4 - eat what is delivered

Tis costing a small fortune, but I really don't care right now!

DEFFO BRILL piccy but a bit dark and small

so soupy really think you do need to enlarge it

RTKangaMummy Tue 26-Jul-05 17:05:25

Daisy it would be for a public service announcement !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SoupDragon Tue 26-Jul-05 17:05:56

Probably can't enl;arge it without it pixelating but could lighten it fairly easily.

RTKangaMummy Tue 26-Jul-05 17:09:07
