Cooking: GF toad in the hole

Made a gluten free toad in the hole last night which was rather tasty!

Toad in the hole” does sound a bit odd – in the UK its sausages in a batter which rises. According to my US colleagues, they’d be expecting a fried piece of bread with a hole in the middle, into which an egg is broken into!

This is the UK version – although I’ve been known to make such bread + egg things in the past as they’re quite tasty. So long as you leave the egg yolk runny!

BfA – Battle for Attention

I’m in an unusual situation; somewhere I’ve never been in all the years I’ve been playing World of Warcraft. My thoughts of late have been along the lines of:

Meh
What’s the point?
