I have just spent a not inconsiderable time in the kitchen preparing lunch for me and the love of my life. I drew on all past experiences and advice received by numerable chefs I have worked with down the years. I also allowed my natural talent for creating fine cuisine to permeate into the culinary proceedings.
Mrs H informed me that my "Beans on jacket potato...interspaced with delicate splodges of HP sauce " was of Michelin standard. I feel so proud, my chest is heaving.
Does anyone else have special meals that they create and have their trademark "signature" ?

No, that must have been a different one, Dr Atkins who deviced the diet was a cardiologist who died when he slipped on ice in NewYork!! :D:D I think the lady who invented slimmingworld has serious heart and weight problems tho??

Trust me, the Atkins diet has totally transformed my life, before I started it 7 years ago I was an 18stone lump with type 2 diabetes, excema, arthritus and IBS

I can't boil an egg....anyway it's a woman's job!

Unfortunately neither wife that I've had has been able to boil an egg either!
so the way to your heart isnt through your stomach then Xtreme ;) ..... did you marry them because they had a love of donkeys then ?? they must have appealed to you at some point before you took the plunge! :D:D
