Mussel shells, baked and ground, make for an ideal weed and slug deterrent on the garden as well as supplying calcium carbonate to plants. Allternatively, they can be cleaned in bleach and glazed to make attractive pendants, bracelets, wreaths , picture frame borders or even tiles.

To make simple tasty peanut butter biscuits, mix 260g of crunchy peanut butter with 1 egg and 200g of caster sugar (no flour necessary). Once smooth, use two teaspoons to form the mixture into boulles and flatten to about 1cm thick on a lined baking tray and bake on 195 degrees centigrade for 20 minutes ( a tad less if you like them squidgy in the middle). Garnish with whole/half salted peanuts if desired. Leave to cool on a wire tray and serve.

Chicken does not like egg (it runs off). Breadcrumbs do not like chicken (they fall off). So how to prepare breaded chicken ? The ambassador in this culinary conflict is flour. Rub and firmly knead chicken breasts, legs or thighs in seasoned flour till pacified, then bathe both sides in whole whisked egg until soothed and roll about in a basin of breaded crumb until coarse and bake in the oven, accompanied by a roasting of potatoes and little Yorkshire puddings (the excess egg baste may be used in the preparation of the Yorkshire puddings). Drizzle with chicken gravy and dust with cracked black peppercorns adding a sideshow of microwaved hot Cranberry sauce and a Brusseling of boiled sprouts.

The porous propensity of the seasoned flour clings to the moist chicken, whist the egg baste conjoins with the part parched floured chicken, forming an adhesive base for the breaded crumb.

To grow new roses from pruned rose cuttings, the potato forms an ideal base. Prune pencil thickness shoots in such a fashion that the bottom is pruned flat, while the top is pruned diagonally (this allows water drainage like a sloping roof and prevents bud rot on both the new cutting and the original shrub ). As far as possible remove all leaves and thorns from the stem. Now push each new stem into a bored-out potato ( a bradawl or screwdriver could be used for this). The potato now acts as the new Rose’s private food and water supply into which it will grow roots. Bury both potato with upright stem into the soil with around 6 inches of Rose stem above ground. Water regularly and new Rose bushes will emerge .

…this, incidentally, is post #666… !!!
