  1. We have a couple coming over tonight and I've decided to do a beef stew in the slow cooker. It'll be pretty heavy, using a good dose of dark beer in the sauce. However, there aren't any potatoes or serious vegetables in the stew itself, so it would be nice to serve something else with it. I was thinking of some flat noodles, fettucine-like, but I'm not commited to it. And I need a dessert. Any other good ideas from you creative cookers?
  2. Lose vs. loose

    I'm usually quite tolerant of spelling mistakes, considering I teach English. That's probably because I spell things wrong all the time too and have edited many many many posts after rechecking my spelling.   But having seen so many recent cases on this discussion forum, it's starting to drive me a bit bonkers. Let me provide some definitions:   LOSE lose (NOT HAVE) verb past tenses: lost, lost 1) to no longer possess something because you do not know where it is, or because it has been taken away from you: I've lost my ticket. He's always losing his car keys. At least 600 staff will lose their jobs if the firm closes. 2) to stop feeling something: to lose confidence/faith I lose interest halfway through most book. He kept on crying and I lost my patience. 3) to have less of something than you had before: I'm trying to lose weight. He's losing his hair. She lost a lot of blood in the accident. to lose your memory/sight 4) If you lose time, you waste it: Four million hours were lost last year through stress-related illnesses. We will lose valuable time if we get stuck in traffic.   lose (BE DEFEATED) verb lost, lost to fail to succeed in a game, competition, etc: If we lose this game, we're out of the championship. They're losing 3-1. They lost to Arsenal. Everyone hates losing an argument. They hadn't lost an election in fifteen years   LOOSE loose (NOT TIGHT) adjective (of clothes) not fitting closely to the body: Wear comfortable, loose clothing to your exercise class.   loose (NOT FIXED) adjective 1) not firmly fixed in place: There were some loose wires hanging out of the wall. The nails in the bridge had worked themselves loose. 2) describes hair that is not tied back: Her hair was hanging loose about her shoulders. 3) describes items which are not fixed or held together or to anything else: A few loose sheets of paper were lying around.   So if you LOSE weight, your clothes will probably be LOOSE. Got it?   Okay, rant over, never to mentioned again, unless you really prod me on the point.
