OK, I like cooking. It's my simple pleasure. This photo was only taken a few weeks ago, but it's a simple pleasure of some of the ingredients in the world's best chili recipe.

Sorry I broke the rules. didn't rename the photo with my handle, but since you all know it's me, I'm leaving it. If I get disqualified, I'll live happily ever after lol.

Yes and these too, but the first pic is my entry. P.S. It's not just a bowl. Could feed a dozen easy.

btw, the paper in the background is the secret recipe.

Hmm, i don't think it is fair to allow a member to skip the rules put in place by another moderator just "because it's me".

I do have the will power to make everyones stay here at Ozzu a living nightmare. So, do enjoy! :lol: :wink:

Seeming as i reckon i'll get my fingers cyber slapped for saying this i feel i have to add the text "just joking" somewhere in this post to make it look like i am actually kidding on.

Read this how you will.

Here's my entry:

Image

Nothing beats a glass of malt whisky after a long day!

I actually took this image last christmas. I bought my brother in Norway a bottle of whisky, but then remembered that in order to post this from Scotland to Norway would cost me a fortune as I would have to pay alcohol import tax... So instead, I sent this picture with the caption "It's waiting for you here!".

Pretty expensive Whiskey. Never expected to see a photograph of that on here because the site is full of mostly Americans, i wasn't sure whether it was common to see that over in the States.

I too am from Scotland. Where about are you from?

Good photo and entry.

Not from Scotland (from Norway really), but have lived in and around Edinburgh for the past 7 years. In Bathgate at the moment, which is just west of Edinburgh! whereabouts you from?

As for whiskys, I've developed an expensive taste for them... Jura's not actually my favourite (that would be either a balvenie doublewood or a Caol Ila, depending on the mood), but comes high up on the list! Tend to buy my booze when I go across to Norway as you can still get duty free there as we're not in the EU (yet)!...

I live up in the North East just outside Aberdeen. I've lived in this area for most of my life, only exception was my year in Edinburgh from August '06 to July 07. It is a really nice city.
