SHAKEN BUT NOT STIRRED



While we expect todays techno gadgets to be of robust build for a reasonable price , and on the whole they are . I must applaud Acer as their bargain laptop managed to last nearly 2 years at the hands of Mr C. Finally , yesterday the poor thing gave up the heroic struggle and sank beneath the encroaching flood of dodgy websites.A fizzle , a puff of smoke and a waft of kippers and the Acer is no more.Following a frenzied shopping trip to find a replacement my mind turns to a suitable Viking style funeral for the much loved , dearly departed.Floated out to sea on a burning pile of 1970's porn mags I feel would be appropriate
***brushes away a tear***


Anyway , yesterday was pancake day . Mr Natemare pinched my Pancake Party format to celebrate the occasion .
You supply batter , a couple of frying pans and a selection of sweet and savoury fillings .Your guests bring drink and any unusualy fillings they fancy. Everyone mills about making their own pancakes and getting drunk , the pancake cooking and tossing get messier and less coordinated as time goes on , and the filling combinations get wilder and more stomach churning.We were drinking Martini Cocktails that were as far as I could tell ,pure gin , so you can imagine how quickly it became raucous.
It was great fun , but one word of caution.....the trick is to send everyone home before someone throws up.After all that culinary abuse and alchohol , once one of the blighters honks , you would suddenly be awash in an excorcist stylee vomit fest.
You have been warned

If you spill a gin martini in the pan it makes delightful flaming pancakes.

BEAST said...

What a waste of gin Mr Hammer :-)

MJ said...

I can supply plenty of batter for your next party.

BEAST said...

Mention a whiff of kippers and ***Poof*** up pops MJ

although the gastronomic connection between booze and pancakes remains vague I applaud your re-creation of steven kings sub-story (originally part of 'The Body) ...regurgitation is, after all, meant to be a group endeavor, just as our Roman ancestors intended. America salutes you. *wins pie eating contest, winks at MJ*

MJ said...

*spreads a thin layer of batter on FN's toast and lures her into the Cunt Café*

What a bunch of tossers! Some people are saving their energy for Chinese New Year. Most of them are in China, but there must be a few even in your neck of the woods.

Daisy said...

would prefer just the gin...you can have the pancakes...the food full stop...maybe a splash of tonic...but it isn't a necessary thing...

If your looking for a link between booze and pancakes , look no further than the Crepe Suzette , a ghastly French dish I admit , but its all there , pancakes , alcohol and a bit of orange for the rabid vegetarians.
Dont wink at MJ you only encourage her

Mr Bananas , not everyone tossed , the less confident were seen 'manipulating' with a fish slice. Each to there own I say.
I have never quite got into Chineses New Year , seems to be a bit of oriental attention seeking if you ask me !

and miss a beautifully bronzed pancake oozing chopped banana , fresh strawberries , honey , chocolate chips and nuts , slathered in fresh whipped cream (that should start MJ off again) , Daisy I thought you would have appreciated the indulgent seduction of it all
***waves oozing pancake at MJ***

MJ said...

A pox on your pfannkuchen.

I’ve found love with a latke.

BEAST said...

Licks pancake suggestivly

Daisy said...

sorry beast...food is no longer a turn on for me...long story...

i do have something for you in my neighborhood though...hehe

Newforestandy said...

How many pancakes did you consume, just two here, although I managed to create a great filling......

banana sliced and placed in a pan with a large orange (that had been peeled and sliced) and warmed with brown sugar, then when hot add some dark rum. pour this into the pancake and top with fresh raspberries and a healthy spoonful of greek plain yogurt. then drizzle lemon juice over the lot and see who can eat it in the shortest time! lol

I must admit its pre yum!!!!

BEAST said...

Daisy , thank you I am reading thru the funnies :-)

Mr Andy , I lost count , but it was lots with some savoury and some sweet fillings and lots of cocktails.....I didnt feel very well when I got home with all that swilling about. Your pancake sounds marvellous but I was a little dissapionted there was no 'Fruits of the forest'

Newforestandy said...

Sadly there were no forest fruits left, the lymington lesbians picked them all and used them all up making their traditional Forest fruit jam. I wont tell you what they do with the jam, but it doesnt involve bread and butter.... well maybe the butter!

Frobisher said...

Can you still manage a batter with your old badminton wrist injury Beast?

Mermaid of Moorgate said...

sounds lovely - Crepes suzette, anyone? Or perhaps plenty of pavement pancakes on the way home?

BEAST said...

Mr Andy . One dreads to think what the New Forest Sista's get up to at their 'Afternoon Tea' meetings.

Mr Frobisher , one can always rely on electrical gadgets.

Mermaid , the pancakes were good , and everyone managed to hold on to them as far as I am aware :-)

I too have been making pancakes Mr B! I opted to serve them with piccalilli and sliced beetroot! Lovely!!

MJ said...

Beetroot is your friend.

Beast at work said...

Mr Mutley Beetroot pancakes sounds very sophisticated , but then I suppose you'all lead a more jet set life in bridport 'The home of Beetroot'.

Mj you look a beetroot kind of girl , beetroot and Aldi's brie style 'cheese' sandwiches with lots of milled black pepper is just lush
Just like meeeeeeeeeee

Beast at work said...

MJ your blog is blocked as a porn site from our work 'portal' but then again I suppose it is filthy friday

MJ said...

'Tis indeed Filthy Friday chez MJ and I've been given an award!

You must open your "portal" and let me in to your workplace.

Having said that, I, being 8 hours behind you, am soon on my way to work and won't be accessing the lusciousness of the Beast blog until much later.

I do check my own blog from time to time at work but must try to make myself big in front of the screen should prudes pass by.
