Week 8 # 18 Online productivity

I signed into Zoho Writer and then imported this Microsoft Word document from my own files. I notice the 'degree' symbol didn't import properly but can't initially see how to fix this. This programme obviously doesn't have all the bells and whistles of Word but I can see it would be a great way to ensure that everyone can read your document without having to worry about whether the person you're sending a file to has the software to read your version.

P.S Publishing to the blog from Zoho Writer was a breeze.

GRAPE-PICKERS' POTATOES

600g potatoes

50g butter

300g thin smoked streaky bacon rashers

freshly ground pepper

120g gruyere or similar cheese, grated

Heat the oven to 220ûC. Peel the potatoes and slice them very thinly. Brush a 24-26cm cast iron or similarly heavy ovenproof dish with a little melted butter.

Line the dish with the slices of bacon, covering the bottom and sides and leaving the upper third or so of each rasher hanging over the top of the dish. Put in a layer of potatoes, season with pepper and scatter over some cheese. Repeat the layers, finishing with potatoes. Cover the potatoes with the bacon overhang. Dot with the remaining butter, cover with a double layer of foil and bake for about 1 hour or until the potatoes are cooked.

Remove the dish from the heat, uncover and let it stand for 5 minutes. Loosen the bacon rashers from the sides of the dish and turn the "cake" out onto a warm serving dish. A green salad is a good accompaniment.

Serves 4.
