    More than welcome, I put in Christmas meats order and was already thinking I’d have to downsize it..

    I am getting deboned pork belly with loin attached so I can season and make my own herby filling of about 3-4kg which I was told would be enough for 4-6 people, including leftovers.
    Think you’d be good with about 2kg.

    Uncrimped Turkey gyoza.
    Taste great but a tad dry, the turkey mince was only 2% fat, recipe said not to buy meat which was too lean, but already had the mince in a fridge.
    Will make again, like the karaage, pretty easy to do if you split the making of the filling, filling of the wrappers and then the frying.

    You don't have to take it personally... it's just some hardware,

    But that's thing for many mac users, they do take it personally (probably those who were using them before they became the laptop/phone of choice for the majority of the western world)
    There's still a cultlike aspect to being in the mac ecosystem, which is difficult to explain, a bit like trying to explain to star wars bods that you're okay with not loving the films, and them not being able to get their head around that and trying to convince you they are the best thing to happen to cinema since the invention of special fx.

    I think that once you're in the Apple ecosystem for a while you start to do things like avoiding x.01 releases

    I was going to mention this, but didn't want to sound patronising. With apple software OSX and IOS, never be an early adopter! Haven't been the first to upgrade to anything for almost 15yrs now. Saves a whole lot of apple heartbreak and angst.
    Give it 6mths and you can be fairly sure they've patched most of the bugs.
    Probably why I don't buy new new apple stuff, and prefer to be a generation or two behind, as you know everything's been pretty well sorted, or at least documented by the time you do come to upgrade.

    The only photo you’re going to be getting of the karaage I’ve just fried and eaten. Great crunch, the cornflour worked a treat. They were being devoured before they’d really cooled properly
    And so easy to do as well. Will be making them again..

    always loved westerns, nice primer about the role of black cowboys in the creation of the hollywood cowboy myth.
