Someone made pasta and gravy and it’s sparked a huge debate

Yay or nay?

If you’re not familiar with Rate My Plate, it’s a Facebook page where people submit their meals to face the scrutiny of an online community.

A lot of the time a dish will end up being absolutely destroyed, sometimes for very slight culinary violations, like undercooking your bacon – although personally, it’s got to be crispy every time.

One person who managed to spark a massive debate with what is technically a very simple dish, is Kristi D, who submitted a plate of pasta and gravy.

Kristi’s ‘Classic Pasta and Gravy’ has divided opinion, although it’s fair to say the weight of public opinion is on the side of this dish being an abomination.

One disgusted person said: “I don’t know who told you pasta and gravy is a meal, but you should file a complaint”, while another added: “Nothing classic about pasta and gravy !!! Wtf”, with a load of throwing up emojis on the end to hammer home the point.

Leanne summed up how most people think quite nicely: “Whit the actual fuck! A like gravy and a like pasta but they do not belong on the same plate Kristi go have a word with yourself! [sic]”

However, some people leapt to her defence, with one person saying: “Honestly love pasta with gravy had it a few times this week”, while another said: “Yes! I love pasta and gravy. When I tell others about this they turn their nose up….until they try it”.

Some people pointed out that the German and Austrian dish spätzle is pretty much pasta with gravy, and is delicious: “I mean spatzle is a kind of pasta and it can be a side dish with gravy on it.”

Another added: “Spatzle (type of noodle; homemade of course) with rouladen and gravy is very very good. Always needs a good helping of braised red cabbage on the side”, before continuing: “As for the above fusilli and gravy; that looks totally disgusting!”

So it looks like it’s a no from most people. What do you think? Pasta and gravy, yay or nay?

Morrisons shoppers upset over ‘intimidating’ Union Jack packaging in the supermarket

Thoughts?

Morrisons use of the Union Jack flag on British products has kicked off a debate online.

It was sparked when a shopper posted a picture of the Union Jack branding on the supermarket’s eggs and butter.

Pictures of the products were posted to Twitter, with the customer writing: “Just back from a trip to Morrisons. Is it just me, or have their butter and eggs always been this… patriotic?”

The post sparked a debate and divided opinion in the comments, with some saying they will boycott the items while others argued it was just marking them as being British products.

Someone replied to the tweet to say: “Very upset by porridge I saw in Morrisons. This flagging everything is very unpleasant and quite intimidating.”

A second added: “Retaliate. I’m no longer buying anything packaged as such. Hurt them through their bank accounts.”

While another replied: “Won’t be buying eggs from Morrisons.”

Some people were confused as to why people were so offended by the Union flag being on British products.

One person said: “I can’t believe you all get triggered over the fact it’s showing we have British products in our stores. You should be proud that it’s cut down on air miles and transport costs and in turn is helpful for the environment. No, you’d rather moan about the national flag.”

A second asked: “They also have the French flag on Brie and Camembert cheeses and the Italian flag on a number of meats. Should we remove them as well? Or is it just because it is the British flag?”

A man trying to make a swift getaway from police ended up getting more than he bargained for.

The suspect ended up with a sore head after smashing into a ‘one way’ sign after his concentration slipped.

The 33-year-old male was attempting to give Greater Manchester Police the slip after stealing a £760 Moschino bag in the city centre.

While he was making off from officers he looked behind him and ended up faceplanting straight into the sign.

He was subsequently arrested and taken into custody to recover from a ‘sore head’.

GMP took to Twitter and Facebook yesterday to share the news, saying that ‘all signs suggest he’ll make a full recovery’.

GMP City Centre wrote: “One way to custody… A 33yr old male stole a £760 Moschino hand bag. Whilst making off from officers, he looked behind him & then faceplanted straight into a One Way road sign.

“Male now in custody recovering from a sore head, all signs suggest he’ll make a full recovery!”

Ouch!

Today, Monday April 12th, sees stage two of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown come into effect.

As part of this second stage, pubs, bars and restaurants can reopen for outdoor drinking and dining, while places like gyms, salons and hairdressers can also welcome people back.

Non-essential retail can also throw open its doors once again, meaning shops in places like the city centre, Arndale and Trafford Centre can reopen from today.

Huge queues have been forming as people are keen to return to shops after lockdown, with large gatherings of people spotted at the Arndale.

Photos and videos have been posted to social media showing people trying to get in the shopping centre from Market Street, with the Arndale opening at 8am today.

Sean Hansford posted a video to Twitter showing a large group being dispersed from the entrance to the Arndale, with very little social distancing happening.

A security guard asks them to move away and to social distance, but the group initially just congregates nearby.

Later videos show a more orderly queue going down Market Street after Covid marshals managed to organise shoppers, with police also spotted assisting with the queues.

Large queues were also spotted at Primark over at the Trafford Centre, as the popular budget retailer reopened its doors.

Will you be heading out shopping today, or are you waiting until things calm down a bit?
