  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

That sounds delicious (as does grilled cheese and baked beans - no judging!). Will definitely have to try it soon!

Oh heavens - I judge. Sorry, Tina. As resident PLP here, I saw more of those dinners than I cared to.

This one sounds fab, though. Have you poached an egg recently? I think that would be good, too. Here is the guide I used in order to start making them:

Also, fab little 60s French pop mix I came across. Good to listen to while making an egg sandwich:

Okay now you have gone and made me hungry and also wistful I didn't watch the oscars. I also used to be more into that sort of thing. alas!
