I recently be-moaned the loss of my food processor because of the failure of a crucial but tiny and cheap component. So when I had to make a base for a cheesecake for a lunch to which I have been invited on Sunday I was rather flummoxed. I use finely chopped digestive biscuits and ginger nuts in the base. The old way would have been to crush them in a bag with a rolling pin but I don't have a rolling pin and Wendy has no idea where hers is after the re-organisation and new kitchen at The House. I couldn't find a suitable hitting implement until I came upon my knife steel. Wow. I'll never bother using a food processor again! Quick, effective and no washing up afterwards. Perhaps I should review my use of gadgets in other areas too.
