Homeopathic A&E

There are people who occasionally tell me I’m a close-minded old curmudgeon because I have a particularly low opinion of the efficacy of homeopathic cures. I encourage them to enjoy the video below :-)

I remember the spice burger

I stumbled across this article in the Irish Times this morning:

Spice burgers back on the menu due to popular demand

I especially like the description of the spice burger as, “one of Ireland’s few original contributions to world cuisine”, and “a delicious blend of Irish beef, onions, cereals, herbs and spices coated with traditional outer crumb”.

My old school canteen used to serve these things, and I loved them. I had no idea that

a. the spice burger was a uniquely Irish phenomenon

b. there is actually meat in those things.

I wish Walsh Family Foods well in their quest to keep the spice burger on the market.
