To start the day on a lighter note,yesterday I invented a new flavour gin.It`s easy to make,just put your litre of gin in the fridge on it`s side with cap insecurely screwed,it will then fill your veg box! Did I immediately tip it down the sink?No,of course not!I double st rained it,poured myself a large GnT,sipped it,then tipped down the sink.What a waste,veg didn`t look too happy either.

I think the lesson learned here is to not put the gin bottle away in the first place!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Certainly not keeping it in the fridge again!

Exactly, always finish the bottle totally and then the only place to put it in is the bin as its empty!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hi cowparsey. You could have made gin and vegetable soup with the spoiled veg. Well maybe not.

Yea, Veโ€™ginโ€™table soup

Very clever.Washed off the kalettes and ate them last night.Didn`t give me a hangover.

Good thinking Deano_H

Would several glasses of gin replaced my 5 aday do you think?

1 Glass of gin (juniper berries) and 1 glass of wine (grapes) then you got 2 of your 5 a day.

Good thinking.

Bloody Mary with breakfast, 2 pints cyder with lunch and 2 glasses of wine with supper. That's my Five-a-Day sorted! ๐Ÿ˜

A Double Diamond works wonders works wonders so have one today LOL

The staggering, falling over and getting up again covers your exercise too. Good thinking MichaelJH.

That's a real waste of good veg lol. Why does your gin have to be in the fridge? That's what ice cubes are for darling. ๐Ÿค‘

I know but it`s incase I run out of ice.Haven`t got an ice box and I live too far from shops to just pop out.Won`t be put in fridge in future that`s for sure.

Just ask and I'll send you some ice x๐Ÿ˜‚

Could make the envelope a bit soggy by the time it arrives especially if it`s second class post.x

I would expect Cornish Gin to have a yellow hue from saffron, just like the (saffron cake). A cream tea gin might be a step to far but didn't Heston Blumenthal do a Bakewell Tart one.

Mine did have a yellow hue.It was from the swede but you`re right about the saffron.Wonder why no one`s come up with it.Could it be that the yellow hue might be rather reminiscent of something else not entirely attractive?
