An inability to cook

I now know how it feels to be old and confused by technology. I have now had the equivalent of the stereotypical hour of trying to set the video recorder just to be humiliated by the 5 year old setting it in seconds.

I tried to make pastry last night.

Okay, that’s a bit grand. I tried to roll out a block of ready made pastry so that I could line a pie dish. And I failed. I ended up with a wedge of pastry, ripped into shreds and half wrapped around the rolling pin.

Five minutes later GB has turned it into a thin sliver of pastry that filled a pie dish.

I poured in some beans to blind bake with, and put it in the oven at the prescribed temperature.

15 minutes later, the top of the pie crust is black and the beans are welded to the bottom of the raw pastry case.

It’s fecking Voodoo, I tells you…
