Present: Lisa, Owen, CGM, James, Ed, Jack
Apologies: Jack (sic), Carol.

  1. Cake opened 4.11.
  2. Zucchini would be a weird ingredient; mayonnaise, being egg and oil, makes sense.
  3. Cake 1 contains cinnamon and red wine.
  4. Ed: "You don't eat cheese strings for the taste, you eat them for the mechanical properties."
  5. Salt'n'shake la margarine - it came with separate yellow in twentieth-century America.
  6. Lisa has no dry spaghetti: in fact she has no spaghetti.
  7. Lisa spent the day doing it on purpose. Oo-er.

Lisa & Owen apologise but aren’t very sorry.
