I'm guilty of this myself though.  Once, when ordering invites to a Sky
Launch party (temping as a lowly secretary) I ordered an invite for a
'Mr Martin Dale'.  Unfortunately when it turned up, it didn't match his
ID and he wasn't allowed entry.  Why?

It was addressed to Mr Martine Dow.    :)
My finest moment.

Your burgers sound delicious.  I bought a pack of parsnip crisps from
Waitrose yesterday, they weren't the nicest I've ever tasted to be

OH and by the way, thank you all for the curry recipes.  It looks like
Sag Aloo may be on the menu.  Possibly with aubergine added to it.

Must be endemic to the county. I once got a letter addressed to Mr  
Jailbrine. My Dad, who has never seen a minute of military service in  
his life, still gets a Gentleman's Outfitters' catalogue addressed to  
Lieutenant General O'Brien. How they got Lieutenant General from  
"Jim" I'll never know.

And to keep the topic of food on the - ahem - boil, here's what I had  
for dinner the other night-

Mushroom Turkey Burgers and Maple Baked Root Chips (serves 4)

1lb Turkey mince (if you have a food processor, make your own for  
better results)
4 Chestnut Mushrooms
4 Shiitake mushrooms
1 Egg
1-2 Tablespoons porage oats (or breadcrumbs but the oats are better)

Root chips:
2 Parsnips
1 Sweet potato
1 tsp Coriander seed
Honey or Maple Syrup

Cut the parsnips into roughly chip-shaped chunks, lightly oil and  
bake in an oven at 190C for 15 minutes.
Cut the sweet potato the same way, add to the pan and lightly oil. Brush
the parsnips and sweet potato with maple syrup or honey (you  
might want to thin the honey slightly with water)
Grind the coriander seed and use it to season the chips.
Bake for a further 25 minutes at 190C, or until the edges of the  
parsnip crisp up.

Chop the mushrooms quite fine and add to the turkey mince. Mix well.
Season using cajun, chilli powder, season-all, spice rub or whatever  
comes to hand. Use more seasoning than you think you should. Mix in  
Whisk the egg lightly and mix it in.
Add oats progressively until the mixture is dry enough to shape into  
Make 4 patties and cook them in a <s>wonky breville</s> Foreman grill  
for 7 minutes, or probably 4-5 minutes per side in a normal grill.

Not the most complicated recipe in the world, I admit, but the oats  
and mushrooms made these burgers by far the best we've ever made.
