Lucia Snail in the machine

I had a feeling that not keeping the washing machine lid closed was a bad thing. Today my inability to keep the lid closed created pulverised snail over white sheets.

Looks like a quick wash to take advantage of the warm sun before dinner time has backfired.

I am officially grossed out right now and need a gin.

Perhaps add some garlic and butter next time Lucyna?

How do you think the snail feels?

Is this how you treat all Allah's creatures?

Allah should keep the buggers out of the laundry!

Carnivorous snails? And who is Basil? He must be a bloody slow on his feet is all I can say.

LOL! I just love that episode.

D4J, have you been using snail bait? I hear beer is good too, but it just seems a bit of a waste to me.

I've just planted out a whole lot of baby basil plants, so if the snails get them, I'll be really unhappy!

Hmmm, maybe I should go out and put a ring of snail bait around them ...

Lucyna, I used dried out egg shells over night,I didn't have any snail bait . It has seemed to work as my basil plants look ok this morning .

Cheers and all the best for 2008 .

The chef put Basil in the ratatouille? Aarrgh!

The chef put Baisl in the pesto

* 2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
* 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan-Reggiano or Romano cheese
* 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
* 1/3 cup pine nuts or walnuts
* 3 medium sized garlic cloves, minced
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Please do not mix ingredients in washing machine and it's a lovely dip for cooked snails :-)

Lucyna and D4J - A ring of sand works well - snails and slugs do not seem to like crossing it.
