I went off for an evening hair appointment leaving MM to cook his own dinner. I returned and asked MM how he had got on with his culinary adventure. MM explained that he had grilled his steak and then decided to add satay sauce. But to his dismay the dinner tasted very strange. It was only then that he realised he had spread the steak with apricot jam.
