Perfect roast beef
This was how it was supposed to look like, but here is our recipe and it came good too! Its almost everything that Jamie did, but this time we didnt have enough ingredients, which didnt matter! It was anyways tasty n juicy!!!

  • 4 big potatoes
  • 2 mediam onions
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 bulbs of garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Mausteyrttiseos (Seasoning Herb Mixture)
  • Salt and pepper

  • Take your beef out of the fridge 30 minutes before it goes into the oven
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/475°F/ gas 9
  • peel the vegetables, give them a wash and roughly chop them
  • Dice the potatoes or do what ever you want with them.
  • Break the garlic bulb into cloves, peel them and slice them in four pecies
  • Pile all the veg, garlic and herbs into the middle of a large roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil
  • Drizzle the beef with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper, rubbing it all over the meat
  • Place the beef on top of the vegetables
  • Place the roasting tray in the preheated oven
  • Turn the heat down immediately to 200°C/400°F/gas 6 and cook for 1 hour for medium beef.

UK Woman Gives 7-Year-Old Daughter ‘Plastic Surgery Voucher’ For Christmas!

I was reading this and i had to share! This is sick guys! What is wrong with people for real!!!

Today, in Reasons People Hate The Western World, we learned that Sarah Burge–the so-called “Human Barbie” (or, the lesser one, as we like to think)–courted publicity yet again in an extremely sad, gross way by giving her seven-year-old daughter Poppy Burge a voucher for £7,000 worth of plastic surgery as a Christmas gift. Burge explained:
“I put the voucher in her stocking – there’s nothing wrong with that. She asks for surgery all the time. She wants to look good and lipo is one of those procedures that will always come in handy. [...] I see these vouchers as investing in her future – like saving money for her education*.”
We first learned of Burge when she bragged to the press about giving Poppy a voucher for future breast augmentation as a gift for her seventh birthday. Before that, Burge copped to giving Poppy pole-dancing lessons.
Whenever stories like this crop up–the whole Botox Mom debacle springs to mind–many readers are quick to condemn these parents and insist their children should be taken away. Although we don’t think you can glean a complete picture of one’s parenting skills from a tabloid story, we can reasonably conclude that Sarah Burge has no problem exploiting her child for fame. Which sounds, coincidentally, like horrible parenting.
Burge has spent over £500,000 on plastic surgery for herself. Unfortunately, that won’t keep generating headlines on its own, which is why we should prep for more stories just like this one.

What do you think guys?  Is this right?
