Despite being an unsavoury character I don't have a sweet tooth either, which makes me a very lean orangutan indeed (yeah, I wish!  :wacko:)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

It is true that veering towards the savoury does not spare you the calories.  I must say though we have some odd stuff at work.  I could usually work my way through the range with no problem, but one of our offerings is a chicken and noodle lollipop thing.  It is not the most attractive buffet item I have seen  :wacko:

I did once go to a do at a working mans club when I lived in Sheffield.  It was a wedding anniversary for a work friend and they had picked their favourite items, which included fried black pudding bits on a stick and a huge plate of whelks.  It was a bit of a culture shock for a softie southern lass like me  :lol:

My basket in Iceland told the tale.   2 x boxes of mince pies with a crumble top (had to get 2, on special offer)
A small oblong Christmas cake, with icing on the top.    2 individual Tiramisu, so bought 4 because the date stamp is until mid January.   2 packets of sultana scones, that's 8 in total.    I always have scones in the freezer.  I just don't know what to try first  :lol: :lol:  Mrs Bouquet ( but I still weigh in every morning and will correct the days intake if I am more than my 8st 2lbs)

Have just tried the Iceland Mince-pie.    Couldn't find any mincemeat.     Don't bother with them !!  But I have now got eleven left if you want to come and try  ::) ::)

I love Eccles cakes so why don't I like mince pies,   otherwise I'd help you out!  Can't help with the scones as they contain milk (usually).  So I'll take a raincheck on this invitation.  :nowink:
