Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had too much for lunch.

Now I'm not just full - but my pants are also too tight.

But did you thank somebody on thread you had no interest in by mistake because your fingers are also now too fat?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My meringue roulade tastes fantastic but is too fat so it rolled rather badly and thus presents quite messy.

Choosing slippers for the next Swiss dinner party: should they match my socks and trousers, or match the carpet at the dinner party?

I've had to drink the wine - there was no room for it in the fridge.

Ha! I had to have a G&T because I didn't want to waste the half bottle of Fever Tree tonic left over from a friend's visit last night.. not to mention wasting the lemon

Wasting a lemon is a cardinal sin...

Saved! Unwrapped the roulade at destination and it actually presented rather well. Did a great job of impressing many people!


Next problem... I have a boatload of laundry to do and the weather is predicted to be wet, wet, wet almost the entire weekend.

Now for those of you still in CH, where the washer and dryer is a common approach, I'm in Australia where dryers are far less common in favour of the old hanging-up line drying on the Hills Hoist... a bit of a challenge when the heavens open up.

I accidentally poured a tot of milk into my tot of whisky before realizing it was not soda - topped it up with soda, and then had to drink this slightly curdled mixture.

Wasting whisky is a cardinal sin!

Pic? When I think of a roulade I think of a soft, cakey roll so am having trouble picturing this.

I don't have a picture of the one that I made today... as soon as I unwrapped it, someone started cutting it up. Before I could take a picture, within 30 seconds, 75% of the roll was gone.

Here's a couple of photos of a similar roulade which I made last week (similar filling - lemon curd, whipped vanilla cream, fresh blueberries, crusted in walnuts). This post should probably go in the "what you've baked" thread...

Wooden clogs would be the perfect solution if wooden floor.

You could start a thread of "Inspirational/Entrepreneurial" job titles for folk who don't actually want/need a job. There's clearly a space for it.

All those new German lessons threads, which keep popping up on EF, annoy me.

I keep forgetting to unsubscribe to threads I'm on and now I can't see the wood from the trees in my inbox. I blame all the threads on Brexit

Feast or famine, eh?

I like getting one or two so I don't turn it off completely. It's only the Brexit posts have been coming in thick and fast today - swamped, I was.
