Stuff and nonsense

by 3arn0wl

Liz Bannister wanted to bake a Victoria Sponge for tea. She didn’t have all the ingredients though,  so she sent Graeme to the Farmers’ Market with a shopping list:

Well, for some reason Ella Miller wasn’t there, so he couldn’t get the flour.

Phil didn’t have any eggs left either.

And so, in the best traditions of the professional supermarket shopper,  he substituted a packet of Roger Moore’s biscuits for the flour,  and a carton of Minnie Driver’s cream cheese for the eggs.

He’d got everything else though, so that was good. He was sure Liz would be pleased too. 😀

Say Cheese

by 3arn0wl

Of course it was the fact that he (and Amos) found them utterly irresistible that had led Alistair Crookes to become a shepherd. He was still amazed at how many people stopped to take a picture of the lambs though. He hopes they get a good depth of field.

Crumbs! Minnie Driver’s Caerphilly arranging her cheeses.  She’s trying to develop her marketing, but she’s not having much success taking the snaps.

And Jenny Darling went to Willy Lord to have her portrait done in order to renew her passport. He asked her if he could shoot her nude, but when she protested he promised to keep his socks on!

Cheese Roll anyone?

by 3arn0wl

Alistair Crookes has gone up to the trig point way above Winskill for some peace.  He’s taken a cheese roll – he may be some time. It’s almost as if you’re on top of the world up there. And he can see his flock, like little white dots on a green radar screen,  down below.

Minnie Driver’s up at Snodding Hall in her cheese role – hoping to persuade Cook Cakes to use her new Gawthrop Blue in her scones.  Cook Cakes thinks the idea’s cuckoo, but agrees to give it a try.

And the formidably foolish, the helplessly hopeful and the seriously simple youth have gathered once again – as they always do on Mayday Monday in Upper Snodding, Stilton, and twice in Gloucester – to throw themselves down a ridiculously steep hill in a quest to capture a smelly, dirty round of cheese.

Inns and outs

On her whey home from a productive meeting with Barry Frier @ theDew Drop Inn, Minnie Driver

A really cheesey idea’s just occurd to her, and she intends to milk it for all its worth! 😉

Perhaps Tricia Lowe’s llama’s milk would make a semi-soft, crumbly blue!

Fair Trade πs

by 3arn0wl

Unaware that it was British Pie Week, Simon was at the Farmers’ Market, where he hoped to meat a ………..  He ended up buying a very tasty Pork Pie.

Minnie Driver was famished.  She’d been stood in the cold all morning trying to shift her four cheeses. And with all those wonderful smells wafting over from that gourmet van!  Sheer torture.  In the end she caved into a Cornish pasty.

Fr. James Dean of St. Nick’s was also unaware that it was Fairtrade Fortnight, but nevertheless he enjoyed a cup of Fair Trade tea with a tart he’d picked up in Upper Snodding.

Cheesed Off

by 3arn0wl

Having spent some time experimenting with different pissibolities,  Minnie Driver has finally produced four cheeses ready for market: a crumbly Cheshire, her soft Gawthrop Blue,  a lightly smoked and a fruity one that would make an excellent cheesecake topping all by itself.

She had intended to take her cheeses to the Farmers’ Market in Upper Snodding,  and would have done so had she not received a letter from the Cheese Board that morning informing her that her blue cheese had not received a certificate.

Apparently it’s just whey too blue!
