Fish Pie for Pi day!

I love the excuse, cook a pie for pi day. A cheap play on words and its more motivation in the kitchen! My pie was a fish one (Sorry for the title being so misleading), and it was good.

I swear Tescos (English supermarket) wants you to make fish pie, they have special salmon, cod and haddock packages and there’s even a recipe on the back of a parsley sauce packet (yes i cheated on that front..)

I took a cheesy picture on my laptop but photobooth was a right pain in the arse and i couldn’t work out how to turn flash off, as a result here’s the finished glaring product (that is a love heart in the middle not an upside down pair of testicles)

i'm sorry my shy pie isn't very photogenic..

The recipe was fairly straight forward, and I’m sure there are loads of great ones out there, but the one i went for was:

Ingredients:


Fish (of your choice)

Milk – 300ml (I know, a measurement!)

Parsley powdered sauce (from any supermarket)

Potatoes

Leeks

Mushrooms

Parmesan/ Cheddar

Any other veg you want!

Method:

1. Heat up a little milk in a pan and add the fish to it.

2. When the fish looks cooked then take it out of the milk, add the rest of the milk and the parsley powered sauce to the heated milk and turn down the heat a little.

3. In the mean time, fry you veg and boil your potatoes.

4.Once the veg and sauce is cooked, wack the fish, the sauce and the veg all in a cooking pot.

5. Once the potatoes are boiled drain them and add some butter and mash!

6. Cover the potatoes on top of the fish and veg.

7. Grate some cheddar/ parmesan/ cheese fo your choice on top.

8. Put in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Get involved with your knife and fork, it’s ready!

My Friends’ Band

The Small Personal Victories, not a bad name kinda catchy i think. I’ve always liked the idea of knowing people who are in bands just in case you can say you knew them one day.. They played for the first time in front of a live crowd and produced a pretty good sound, as for everyone else hearing them you can do so on this link, the recording isn’t amazing but they put in a good sound (they also have a cheeky interview).. tell me what you think and I can pass the compliments on (making assumptions on the compliments part)!

Nujabes my King!

I swear there is no better music on earth than the stuff that Nujabes produces. If you look at his comments then all you feel is the love from people round the world focussed into his beats (I’m glad i’m writing this down because I definitely couldn’t pull off these sentences with my posh accent)!

If you are looking for a chill out and need some background music, about the only music i can work to, this is the stuff, there is an epic playlist on youtube, I’m not personally a fan of the ones which feature rappers because they distract from the overall relaxation of it but try it out for yourself…

The Most Hated Woman in the World

We all know we are heavily influenced by the media around us. Only the hermits of old can escape the discussions that go on in the news and in social media websites, although I am sure they wouldn’t stop being discussed. What I witnessed tonight on youtube was one of the poorest displays of humanity that I feel I have ever witnessed; people publicly humiliating and confessing to their loved ones crimes that they have done against them in front of the jeering public. This is all in the name of television.

The show is called ‘The Moment of Truth.’ Contestants win money from owning up to what they have done from difficult questions put to them by difficult people after being hooked up to a lie detector. This particular woman has her ex-boyfriend ask her questions to admit that she thought they should have been together on their wedding day AND that she had had an affair all in front of her husband:

The poor guy’s life fell apart for the sake of money, something material that doesn’t last chosen over marriage which is supposed to represent purity and chaste love, and maybe for him even it does. Her actions show horrifically that some human beings are so shallow that they cannot see further than their wallets. She is prepared to destroy her life for the prospect of some home comforts and getting the bills paid. She is not however, the only one to blame.

The television companies that air these programmes aim to be controversial, aim to harm, but most of all they aim to make money no matter what. The exact same aim that the girl has, except she is the monkey in jumping through hoops at the front of the audience, and they are the owners counting the money. But you see a lot of this unashamedly broadcast for shameful fame. The olden days of virtue are lost as racism slap-handedly splashed across programmes and whilst they raise awareness they aim to incite anger. Admittedly racism was more prominent in days gone by, but the excuse for any prejudice has gone, as people are educated enough, and compassionate enough to see that we are all the same you and I.

Morals and virtue are no longer as prominent as a result both on television and in real life. Yes people commit crimes for personal greed and necessity, but thanks to television of this nature we see the monstrosities that would not normally happen. Such horrible deeds go noticed and I know ignoring them does not delete them, but it does not promote them either. The one silver lining I would take from the video is that you can realise of how little importance money has in the face of your own family and partners for I can personally say I would not trade £25,000 or more for the life I lead and the people I love and love me, and I am sure I am not the only one. She says ‘I feel really good getting these things off my chest.’ Well it shouldn’t be that easy, and I am sure as hell her husband does not deserve the burden. And that is why I am writing this at 2:55am instead of sleeping, because I know humanity is better than ratings and money and even though they have succeeded in getting more views and inciting controversy and anger, they have highlighted their prostitution of morals for money.
