Its in the bag

As local television programming continues to romanticise the culinary process, we are keeping it real here in the Hoppo Bumpo family.

To illustrate, this photo was taken in my mum's kitchen. Its a casserole ... in a plastic bag.

Mum assured me that it was for preparation and not cooking. And despite looks, that the bag really is not a bin liner.

Clearly standing-back-and-throwing meals together is something I cannot help. Its genetic.


  1. in theory one could boil all of that in a bag for the casserole, which might be a bad thing when people found out the veg was boiled in a bag. but on the other hand that just leaves more casserole for you if you like casserole and the thought of eating something thats been boiled in a grosses other people out :p (lots of veggies are boiled in bags here)

  2. Yes, CLEARLY!

    You are a riot!

  3. We have casseroles in ice cream containers, and often plastic bags too. It's totally the way to go!!

  4. You know, that works just as well in a bowl. Just sayin'. :p
