If you can buy them on the vine do so, as they retain their firmness and flavour for longer. Tomatoes should always be a little crispy (there's nothing worse than a soggy tomato sulking on your plate). This will be achieved if you place them alongside ...

Ahead of Farmhouse Breakfast Week, head chef at St George’s Market Bar & Grill James Bell tells us how to get the breads crispy and those sausages brown. "The real skill in a great end result is cooking the entire meal in the one pan, thus securing and sealing the flavour throughout the whole cooking process. Oil Pan fry in cold pressed rapeseed oil. It's clean, taste-free and has an extremely high burning point, which is important when cooking all of your ingredients in one pan. (It is also 50 per cent healthier than olive oil, high in heart healthy mono & polyunsaturated fats Omega 3,6 &9, contains plant sterols – thought to contribute to help lower cholesterol and is high in Vitamin E, which is great for the skin). Place your large heavy based frying pan on a low and slow heat, producing a light sizzle, and above all you do not want your oil spitting. Sausages Begin with your small drizzle of rapeseed oil in the pan. When it’s hot, place your two sausages in gently, turning occasionally to colour all the way round for a nice even flavour, do this for approximately eight minutes. Bacon Bacon is next in the pan, adding a brilliant flavour that is hard to beat. Add two rashers of bacon to the pan – we use thick-cut back bacon, as it’s less fatty than streaky, but everyone has their preferences.
OMG-MAYBE, just maybe, he can set up classes and teach other fathers on how to do this. uhm, wait, perez, uhm I have even seen Jon Gosselin…. you know, the douche, playing with all eight of his kids, NOT THAT HE HAS DONE IT RECENTLY, but he has. The true "super Dads" are the ones that do all that with their kids, plus all the stuff around the house, plus hold down a regular job, and all without the help of nannies and MILLIONS of dollars. - I certainly don't begrudge him being hands on with the kids. You guys apparently have ZERO brain cells you're working with…. Apparently Unbelievable and Justtfax are the only ones who understand my point…I am not saying taking some of your brood to the park isn't a great thing. I agree Perez - he needs to shave - it really ages him. Seems like sometimes when you have a really good looking male movie star, they almost go against their good looks - look how weird Johnny Depp looks sometimes. You know those kids are going to be cuckoo. Re: KardFan – um…. sorry to burst your bubble, but kids that age DO in fact chose their clothes. They like to assert their "independence" and dressing how they want to dress is a way to do that…. of course, having said that, the parents do make the final purchase of the clothing items…who knows, maybe she has a closet full of dresses at home…and I wouldn't say.

17. Finally, be grateful for a game in which the Falcons made more goofy decisions and bad plays than the Browns. Also that the Browns beat the clock, even if it was a cuckoo clock.
