    Just add the chilli as you go along, to taste. Or add in extra apple juice. Although i have always wanted to replace the apple juice with pineapple juice in that recipe, just out of interest.

    How about a halloumi stew?

    3 onions
    2 peppers
    3 cloves garlic
    2 tinned tomatoes
    tomato puree
    half a bottle of red wine
    1 tin butter beans (drain)
    1 tin sweet corn (drain)
    2 packets of halloumi (drain and cut into chuncks 1cm wide
    Italian herbs
    Olive oil
    Salf and pepper to season

    Basically the recipe is to whack it all in a pot. Start with the onions, and brown them. Then add the peppers and garlic along with half of the wine. About ten minutes later add everything else. Bubble it all up for around 35-40 minutes.
    Sounds tasty

    By far one of my favourite recipes. Shame i seldom make it because its an expensive recipe, red wine and two blocks of halloumi alone sets you back over a tenner :eek3:

    That does make quite a lot though i guess.

    Any recommendations for a new phone? My iPhone 4 has given up the ghost and is out of warranty so I'm just going to pay to early upgrade. I'll stick with Orange and all I really need is decent internet usage. A quality camera and other such things are unimportant to me.

    I was talking to one of my friends today and he said that there is "no such thing as stress"

    What a sheltered middle-class life he lives.

    Stress is physiologically measurable, although i cannot remember whether the physiological reaction comes before or after the psychological. Although by his rationality, there is also no such thing as happiness.

    What does being middle-class have to do with him not believing in stress? :holmes:

    Because he's never had to deal with making the decision of paying the bills or feeding yourself properly. A situation my family has found themselves in before.

    Again I ask what being middle class has to do with it?

    Because you don't have to worry about things like that - you have the pieces of paper called money.

    My friend probably hasn't been about 2 miles near a council estate though :rofl:

    I'm not going to start a class war here though - as I guess out numbered as a working class lad.

    I can see past the complete BS. I seriously doubt all the wild stories you happen to tell.
