carrot, definitely some peas.

slighted dented packet. Popularity is probably due to it's traditional
English nature and its healthy vegetarian bias.

could be simpler. Quorn Cottage Pie takes 30 minutes to cook,
complimentary vegetables can be prepared in minutes, especially with
today's modern ring-pull cans. Since Quorn Cottage Pie benefits from
slight overcooking and vegetables from under cooking (thus holding on to
the remnants of nutrients left in the brine soaked matter). All manner
of activities can be carried out simultaneously.

that it seems to take 10 mins to power-up)
- Enjoy the Live version of Led Zeppelin's
"Dazed and Confused" from "The Song remains the
Same" and still have 3mins 17secs to spare.
- Change that set of strings on the guitar that
should have been changed so long ago (ensure you have the same gauge
though, you DO NOT have enough time to set up the intonation and the
action as well you know).
- Squeeze in a round of WRC on the PS2 (pref.
Finland or Argentina)
You get the idea.
Please remember to pierce the film covering the
Cottage Pie before cooking (see Fig 2).
DO NOT ATTEMPT
THIS AT HOME
Chef demonstrates a method of piercing the delicate film covering
Quorn Cottage Pie when extracted fresh from the chiller. DO NOT
GET CARRIED AWAY AND ATTEMPT THIS TECHNIQUE ON THE COMPLIMENTARY
TIN OF VEGETABLES. It's very silly.

Wow this is amazing, not only a tasty and succulent
meal, but its so light in calories, why not add a tasty bread roll with
Pie, will remove from its packages tray, but the chances of getting it
out, onto a plate with the decorative mash potato topping on top are less
than 5%. Plus there is the washing-up factor. However, if you really
cannot face the thought of those lovely vegetables without gravy, then
Bemuddlement recommends that extraction is performed. Always extract if
adding gravy, washing up cold remnants of this meal
is never pleasant, but doing so with a plastic tray swimming in cold
Vegetarian Oxo is a truly sobering experience.
can always recommend something Amos-y (and we don't mean old 1970's
repeats of Emmerdale Farm, although the period where NY Estates was formed
is classic viewing). The 90 minute "Tori Amos live in New York"
may be a little lengthy for late night dining, but there is enough variety
and depth to keep even the most fatigued Bemuddled viewer enthralled.
Failing that, a few editions of "Stella
Street" are always welcome. Try to avoid complicated items, such as
that illogical menu system on the "Father Ted" DVDs.
Does that look good. How can this much indulgence weigh in at less
than 1000 calories. Our chef wisely opted for the "Petit Pois
avec Carot sans Gravy" variety of this dish, enabling the
addition of a wholemeal floury bap. Rounded off with "Tori
Amos live in New York".
