I just realised I'm not exactly Delia Smith

My boy just asked what's for dinner, and I replied "Oh, err, chicken thing with some other things".

Has anyone else had a time when they weren't exactly?

And, just seen the title is wrong. blush
A time when I wasn't exactly a proof reader.

We often have my famous ‘chicken thing’ everyone knows what it is , but it’s just a long list of ingredients rather than an actual recipe name.
To go with it I usually do the ‘pastry type thing that Grandma did ‘ they all know what that is too, again no actual name.
Most other ‘things’ have an actual name.

I excel in fusion food
Any items to form a plate of food from the freezer when desperate......

Not me, but someone I know, who was ordinarily a devoted, adoring father.

When he had a long, long day of her being demanding. (And boy, was she!)
This is the time when he wasn't exactly the best dad.
"Daddy, daddeee, DADDY!!!! I need something right now to stick this picture in my book. DAD! DAD! "

Him; "Use bogies".

I've seen your sausage thing rear it's head on here before, kitty smile
