Celebrating the new season of spring or simply glad this week's over? Considering getting your friends together for a chat, some food and possibly a (few) good bottles of wine this weekend? We can picture the scene, the menu will be extensive - at least two courses of fare prepared by your own fair hand to impress the socks off your guests. A good evening will be had by all. But the next morning, feeling slightly under the weather due to one too many the night before, you're confronted with the horror of the remnants.
