So we've been away for the weekend, visiting Tartarus's sister in Aberdeen. It's all very exciting - a niece about to give birth and a brother in law who is about to pass kidney gravel!
It was a lovely visit with plenty in the way of good eating and even a trip to the shops on Saturday to think about Christmas presents. Yes, CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!!!! *hyperventilates into brown paper bag*

One part of me said yes, the other part of me said: "Let's go look up 'success rates for Digital Sabbaths on the internet' before we do anything too hasty".

|The Clapham Boys|
It's on BBC2 and is sort of like Gogglebox, but with food.
The cameras follow a wide variety of families as they eat their way through their lives. You can meet the Barry-Powers in Wales. A blended family with several grown up children and a dog that comes out and in the kitchen window.
The Mitchell-Cotts who have named all their children after plants live in a sprawling (gorgeous) old farmhouse where their brood live a Swallows and Amazons life while their frazzled father does the cooking.

|Despite how it looks, it tasted BRILLIANT|
See how the sauce has reduced down by LOADS?
This is what happened on Friday when I moseyed into MacQueen's and spotted a frisbee-sized portion of....something interesting. That 'something' turned out to be a jointed oxtail. Well, strictly speaking COW'S TAIL. But let's not quibble. It was, David assured me, a very tasty cut of meat. Which seems to be the case with the inexpensive cuts, I think; the hard-working muscles (such as an ever-flicking tail) are most delicious - but they need aeons of time to cook them.
