Just had cheese on toast, for the first time strangely enough
heard that lea and perrings was really nice on it, but had none
so i used what i THOUGHT was similar, splashed a load on
sat down to enjoy, my head nearly blew off!

how was i to know Tobasco was hot!!!!!! :guiness (looking at the bottle might have given me a clue, but was too hungry to look :roll: )
Disaster

anyone else done foolish things like this?

subsequently i didn't Finnish it, not a fan of hot food lol

Experimenting with food it never a disaster....call it an experience that you won't repeat!

Marmite and cinnamon on toast........it wasn't horrible, but, it just wasn't quite right :?

Once as a kid, I made myself Lemon Pancakes, under the logic of "If a little lemon is good.............."

Another reason I don't study medicine.

Try RTFM!! (or RTFL where label is The last word)
Lea and Perrins - "Worcestershire sauce - provides instant richness" and is a safe brown colour, Tababsco - "Pepper Sauce etc..", bright red!! :shock: :shock:
Alternatively TASTE THEM FIRST!!!!
Having said all that, experiment.

Heavily peanut buttered toast dipped in Heinz tinned macaroni cheese - tastes strongly of iron, for some reason...

I once had a similarly lemon-related disaster - the first meal I ever cooked, I fried up some minced beef, and squeezed all the juice from a whole lemon into it while cooking - a piquant infusion of taste, I thought - no.... By the end, it felt as if my gums were bleeding and my teeth had melted...

Ever had a curry with paneer in it? Its that weird but yummy cheese that doesn't melt....... when I was a pauper student a bunch of us tried to cook our own version of spinach paneer balti, but we used cheapo cheddar instead. :shock: We never found out what it tasted like, and I had to buy a new saucepan!!

Curry powder on peanut butter doesn't work either! :lol:

You know, if you find a cheese you like, you'll never need anything else on your cheese-on-toast! :D

When cooking frozen pizza do remember to check underneath to see if there's a thin layer of polystyrene lurking there (why?).

Or learn from your mistakes.

Oh no Jez, steer well clear of the kebabs, you'll have much more fun with cheese on toast, we just eat them because we're drunk and don't expect to live very long! ;)

When I was in Basic training our Troop Sergeant said we had to eat all of our ration packs. Being quite new we were slow at our first breakfast in the field. So to speed things up we mixed our beans and sausages with our porridge oats and then tried to eat all!! Never again!! A shovel is a handy bit of kit for burying unwanted food!!!

I know someone who regularly have jam and peanut butter sandwiches - all in the same sandwich! :shock:

I remember a few years ago my mum bought tomato ketchup but didn't read the label - as it said hot n spicy!!!!! Her excuse was that she wasn't wearing her glasses whilst she was shopping!

It needs to be blackcurrant jam and peanut butter - yummy yummy.

There was a girl at my school who used to put Cadbury's flake (other chocolate is available) into her tomato soup. I think she also sometimes had cold custard in her sandwiches too! :?
