Thanks flea .. I will look forward to seeing and hearing those !
I have pm'd the link to you.
Ok, 1stly in answer to your earlyerr question fel, yes we DO make use off all our space. we had to have that room because the kitchen is on the right of the picture and the downstairs bathroom is on the left so we have to have a space between them
ok now for the Music fresh (kind of) from Ingestre hall!
Click here to get the file list. most of you may want to right-click on the files then click on "save target as" as there about 1-3MB each
Apple.mp3 - This has to be the most annoying song ever written. we came up with this just to see what the equipment could do and its me saying "Apple" even though we used the computer to make me sound different AND make it go "A-A-A-A-A-APPLE"
Baby I want you back.mp3 - sung by clair allthough pretty obviosley we used the computer for some of the lyrics but that is her natual voice!
I wanna spread My wings.mp3 - Sung by Rhea. a very deep and meaningful song. the sound quality isnt too good on it though because she was singing too loud for the microphone to cope.
Pain.mp3 - Ha! this was a fun song to do. its a dance track. Aaron is the one saying "your hurt me" like he has tonsilitis and I'm the one saying "But the thing is, I want more" while putting on a funny voice and having my shirt over my mouth. we called it pain because the music teacher there managed to run over our guitarist's foot with the chair THEN while the chair's castors were still on his foot, sit down very hard to which julians words were "ouch! get off my fucking foot you fat fucking bastard!"
pissed.mp3 - I cannot describe this, just download it! it was funny as hell to make! we had to record it 3 or 4 times because we just kept bursting out laughing half way though I am the one talking in the 1st verse again with a silly voive AND i am th one saying "Skol"
Remember the times.mp3 - Sung by Vicky and holy. again, another deep song with a few computer effects in there just for fun!
why cant people trust in me.mp3 - heck. just download it. see what you make of it. I like it but not everyone does sung by Symone
Pissed.pdf - the lyrics to "pissed.mp3"

Have you guys done any eating lately???
Servings per Recipe
This recipe makes 12 servings
All Ingredients should be prepared before you start cooking this will save time and make cooking the dish easier and more enjoyable.
12 fresh uncooked large shrimp
2 1/2 tablespoons (37ml) cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon (1ml) salt
3 slices sandwich bread
1 hard-cooked egg yolk
1 slice cooked ham (about 1 ounce or 30g)
1 green onion
2 cups (500ml) vegetable oil
Remove shells from shrimp, leaving tails intact. Remove back veins from shrimp. Cut down back of shrimp with sharp knife. Gently press shrimp with fingers to flatten.
Beat 1 egg, cornstarch, salt and pepper in a small bowl until blended. Add shrimp to egg mixture and toss until shrimp are completely coated. Remove crusts from bread. Cut each slice into quarter. Place one shrimp, cut side down, on each bread piece. Gently press shrimp to adhere to bread. Brush or rub small amount of egg mixture over each shrimp.
Cut egg yolk and ham into 1/2 inch (1.5cm) pieces. Finely chop onion. Place one piece each of egg yolk and ham and a scant 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) chopped onion on each shrimp.
Heat oil in wok over medium-high heat until it reaches 375F (190C). Fry 3 or 4 shrimp-bread pieces at a time in the hot oil until golden, 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Drain on absorbent paper.

Cooking time (approx.): 38 minutes
Style: Goan Non-Vegetarian
(Goa is a little state in India that I come from. It's absolutely beautiful !)
8 medium sized pieces (about 800 grams) of chicken
2 big onion(s) finely sliced
2 bay leaves
4 green cardamoms crushed
2 green chilli(es) slit
1 tablespoon(s) tamarind paste or pulp
2 teaspoon(s) each of vinegar and sugar
2 cup(s) water
2 tablespoon(s) oil
salt to taste
For Vindaloo Marinade
1 teaspoon(s) each of cumin and coriander seeds
½ teaspoon(s) each of mustard seeds, black pepper and turmeric powder
2 whole red chilli(es)
½" piece cinnamon broken
2 teaspoon(s) each of ginger, garlic pastes
Roast the ingredients for the Vindaloo marinade except for the turmeric powder and the ginger-garlic pastes, till you get a pleasant roasted aroma. Allow to cool and grind. Mix in the turmeric powder. Make cuts on the chicken pieces and rub the powdered spices and ginger-garlic pastes all over them nicely. Allow to marinate for a few hours preferably or atleast an hour if in a hurry.
Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Fry the bay leaves and cardamoms for a few seconds. Add the sliced onions and fry till they are light brown in color. Add the chicken along with the marinade and fry on medium level for about 3 minute(s) or till the chicken has lightly browned all over
Add the slit green chilli(es),water and salt. Cover and cook on low level for about 30 minutes or till the chicken is fully tenderised.
Add the tamarind paste or pulp. Mix well. Simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. Add the vinegar and sugar. Adjust the balance of sweet and sour as required.
Traditionally Goans like to have generous proportions of hot, sweet and sour tastes in this dish. However, these tastes can be toned down according to indiviual preferences.
Man you guys got me hungry now. I may have to post my chile recipe.
ooh, nearly slipped back under the 3k mark after John had to cull a couple of threads! lol
