Why are scissors when in the singular, known as a pair of scissors? Are 2 scissors also known as a pair of scissors?

Sausages. What a pain in the arse they are to cook. Iím sure years ago someone brought out angular shaped sausages so they didnít keep rolling over.

Lorne sausages are the absolute daddy! On a floury roll with brown sauce and a pint of irn bru (if heavily hungover) or a hot mug of coffee on a cold winter morning is just heaven!

You still have to turn them don't you? We got an El Cheapo air fryer from Costco about a month ago and have started to use it. I even did crumpets in them this week and they turned out better than when done in the toaster!

I'd say so far it's been an excellent purchase and one I wish we had made earlier.

Best bacon in an air fryer. Sweet potato fries too.
