More info as well as his recipe for mashed potatoes…watch the video and lick your lips…:wink:

My goodness those mashed potatoes are a heart attack in a bowl. I imagine they are delicious :yum:

Yes, but you would not get a mountain on your plate (like I make for us) … just a small tasty swirl… :slight_smile:

73 seems to be a ‘bad’ age… one of the Chuckle Brothers died at the weekend same age…

An equally nice character too, by all accounts… :relaxed:

The early 70’s seem to be a bit of a “filter” age - if you get past that without major medical problems you tend to survive into your 80’s or 90’s.

Not much hope for me then lol

Depends on how stubborn you are :slight_smile:

Personally I’m planning on being late for my own funeral - about 30 years late if I can manage it!

On the other hand… if you get to that age, having survived major medical problems… the outlook is bright… :smiley::smiley:

We’re both aiming to make 99 :relaxed:

Oh my, yes please… a 99 would be wonderful right now… :yum::hugs::hugs:

Wouldn’t describe myself as stubborn, but Babeth is, and I have strict instructions, “another 30yrs min!”.
Ok Boss :+1: :slightly_smiling_face:

Don’t aim low, aim for the skies…when you reach a 100 years young I will personally arrive with a cake that I have baked.
Do bear in mind however that my baking skills are zilch, I do like a good knees up though :wink:
