Late night garage peril

There are times when you have to make a late night trip to the garage. For some reason we managed to run out of milk, bread and cereal all at once and we forgot to go and buy any yesterday, so we ended up in the garage buying basics at 11.30 last night and what should we bring home, but this evil.

Best of Both? What the hell is that all about, it's a the shittiest loaf of bread i've ever had the misfortune to consume.

It somehow claims that it has the goodness of wholemeal in a white loaf. What a lot of crap. Firstly it's like eating dough, it falls apart in your hands and tastes like cardboard. Hovis should be fined millions of pounds for foisting this crap on to the British people.

I could bore for England on the subject of the Chorleywood Baking process and he way that bakeries put all sorts of junk into flour to keep the loaf all apongy and fresh for weeks and weeks. Never ever buy presliced bread - even from reputable manufaturers. Full of junk.

I must concur on the issue of crap bread, but not sure I can take you seriously now I've seen your floral chopping board....

Hang on, hang on. That is not my chopping board, alright. Do you really think that some time between 11.30 last night and today I've managed to take a digi pic of a loaf of bread.

Please give me some credit. I know I don't necessarily deserve any but nevertheless.

Make your own bread Six - home made pizza dough, cheese and onion bread, raisin bread - the list is almost five items long.

Nah...that's gotta be your chopping board. It's your style, as are the "harvest" wall tiles.

What's with the toast rack though? That's a step too far.

Paul said...

Hey, toast racks are aspirational - one step down from having a man servant!

Curmy said...

I thought you'd taken that photo at the service station Six ! ( I'm having a Senior Moments day)

Loaf said...

Tried that Hovis crap as well, tastes like they took it out of the oven half way through.

Did try making bread myself once and spent 2 days cleaning the kitchen for my trouble!

Gavin Corder said...

I've never understood toast racks, who wants their toast to go cold? It should be buttered instantly and consumed dripping...

Of COURSE that's Six's chopping board, try googling Best of Both - see? No picture like this one appears! And anyway how long does it take to snap a digital pic and upload it? Quicker than to write the words, I'd say. Except in my case I'd have to have spent a couple of hours chipping the burnt on bits off to get the surfaces as clean as that...

Take yer girlie safe search off and use this:

Now toast racks. Couldn't agree more on the hot, moist and dripping angle. If I wanted to eat cardboard I'd just rip the bran flakes packet apart.

Gavin Corder said...

I'll have you know my searches are never safe! Cheek!

Different search terms that all. OK I believe you!

Les Paul Junior said...

Bloody hell, you lot! Six is just making a valid point about the poor quality of bread and next thing people are on the point of questioning his very lifestyle!

Come on, You're not on the R5L News board now you know! :-)

Paul said...

I'm surprised at Six though - surely a marketing man knows it's the sizzle not the sausage!

Gavin Corder said...

Shy, we all know that Six has a lovely home and impeccable taste (you only have to see his previous pics) and anyway he knows we know, but he pretends he doesn't know we know, so we pretend we know don't know he pretends he doesn't know we know, so that's alright then...

I'm starting to sound like Rumsfeld, ""I believe what I said yesterday. I don't know what I said, but I know what I think, and, well, I assume it's what I said."

"Needless to say, the President is correct. Whatever it was he said."

Paul said...

Gavin, not only have you lost the plot but you've lost the outline for the plot, the location details for the appointment to discuss the outline for the plot and the keys to the car.

I was looking out for Travel Insurance related information and I have found your this post. Sorry, I have seen that isn't a perfect match. But, anyway, I am glad I have stopped by even though this isn�t a perfect match. What you have in your content is very interesting for most people.

Lucy said...

You are dead right there Gavin, only it is actually his wifes impeccable taste...
;)

Gavin Corder said...

Lost the plot! Moi?! See Lucy thinks I'm spot on! Mind you I'm not sure about that Lucy...
