I've been looking at my Google analytics page, and I'm not happy with what I see. So in the spirit of flailing to stop myself from sinking, this is now a food blog.

Where is your God now?

Bah! You lack the will of the true scientist! It is only through such dangerous, unethical experiments that mankind has been able to develop the wheel and the orthopaedic sandal! Do you think Sir Arthur Churro or Dr Lionel Sushi had to kowtow to the ethics committee when they invented culinary marvels?

But I seem to have drifted from the subject. Pea soup burritos! ...continue reading "Pea Soup Burritos"
