I'm bored. Let me tell you what I'm cooking.

* Three potatoes, chopped up into fine slices.
* A fat onion.
* Slightly over half a pack of smoked back bacon. About... 180g probably.
* There was this white cabbage in my fridge which has been sitting there forever. Cabbage just never goes off, it just needs slight shaving to remove the dried-out parts, but you know, it needs to be eaten eventually because if I don't, who will? Not micro-organisms apparently. So I cut bits off it and chopped them up reasonably finely until I was bored. Probably around the same volume as the onion.
* A chunk of butter.
* Some milk. 1/4 pint or so.
* Pepper
* Too much Old Bay

I chopped the potatoes and put them on to boil. If you're going to mash potatoes, and you have any ability to chop things at all, don't chop potatoes into chunks - cut fine, regular slices of a few millimetres each. They boil much quicker and you can leave the skin on. Anyway, I put the potatoes on to boil, and while they were boiling I chopped the onion and the cabbage. Then I went on the internet.

After remembering that I'd put the potatoes on to boil, I drained them and mashed them with the butter and the milk. Then I mixed the onion and cabbage into that. I realised that I'd meant to put bacon in this as well, but had forgotten, so I quickly chopped the bacon up with scissors and threw that in, mixing it about.

It all looked a bit dry so I poured a little hot water in from the kettle. At that point I also ground some pepper onto it, because otherwise it would be a bit boring. And then I thought "oh, I've got this box of Old Bay in the cupboard, that's got pepper in hasn't it? and it's more interesting than pepper" so I put too much in, then mixed everything about. Now it's simmering away and I'm on the internet again. Hello!

What else should I put in? I have quite a lot of herbs but not that many actual vegetables.

It was nice! Cheese would have worked on it though. I always forget cheese.
