1. The geezer who made pikachu cheese shapes

(except they all look disgusting, and kind of not much like a pikachu, maybe if you put MARMITE on the brie to create his stripes!)

Best Opening Conversation In A Film Ever

Do You SeePost a comment • 1,084 views

(Only slightly spoiled in that it was originally a play).

From Possible Worlds, an artsy fartsy sci-fi film which I really rather enjoyed, though it never gets quite as good as this three-liner:

COP: Looks like a murder and robbery.
HIS BOSS: What was taken?
COP: His brain.

v.neat and tastable SBD-friendly recipe

YOU NEED: salmon steaks (size as per M&S’s giant bag o’salmon) (ie strips 1 x 3″); young spinach leaves; eggs; dried chillis; butter; wok oil (i use groundnut); vinaigrette

THEN DO THIS (simultaneously if you can):
i: fry the salmon in a little butter and oil, allow it to caramelise (ie go crunchy); it is ready when the flakes separate
ii: flash-fry the spinach in a little oil in the wok, then add crunched up dried chillis to taste (when you first add the leaves — abt half a salad bag per person — STEP BACK, as the v.first thing it does is blast off a pyroclastic wave of toxic steam; but be ready to step in and stir the spinach straight away – it collapses immediately and chars w.dispatch, esp. if you don’t use much oil)
iii: scramble eggs in a little butter

(i like eggs scrambled in more butter than egg generally but avoid this if this is yr diet recipe) (best drain the spinach when you take it out of the wok, as it reduced fast and the moisture has not all gone up as steam)

salt, pepper, add vinaigrette (=balsamic, olive oil, a little suger) and serve

update: i dub this recipe “SETTING MY PHASE ONE ON YUM
