When I used to be able to afford a nan to go with the order, I'd have that for breakfast. I don't like cold meat, though.

I don't like spicy curry but I like spicy tapas. I don't get it. Because I like Spanish and Mexican stuff for the spice but don't like Indian food for the exact same reason?

I do like wuss type curry like korma though. But my favourite one was this korma only one restaurant I knew had. It was like korma with bananas in. I think it has a different name. I haven't been able to find it since :(

And Peshwari Naan is gorgeous. I've never found someone non-vegan who didn't love it. In fact, that's what vegans who go from being vegetarian to vegan miss, in my experience. Cheese has been replaced but not Peshwari Naan.

Ferris do you mean Yorkshire puddings? :? Surely everyone's heard of those (I mean Brits). I'm a big fan of Sunday dinners. In our house the non-vegans have honey on the parsnips and roast potatoes. It's more common to have mint sauce on, which is lovely too. My auntie is surprised because we have Sunday dinner whenever we fancy it (auntie Bessy) and homemade Sunday dinner whenever we can and fancy it (so Saturdays and school holidays not just Sundays). She thinks you can only have Sunday dinner on Sunday...

She also thinks you can only have big breakfast at breakfast time. I prefer it as a dinner. It's too stodgy for me at breakfast time.

Fish and chips is great too and depending on your diet, you can have different things. You can go more meaty with a battered sausage or less meaty with mushy peas and pickled eggs (they do have those down south right?). Or stick to battered cod/haddock.

Our English town was full of Scots so we had things before other English people did like battered mars bar (yes real thing) and battered haggis. The battered haggis tastes nice. I've never tried battered mars bar for fear that it isn't. Also Scottish is Irn Bru. That's nice (although they changed the recipe and I'm the only person in the world who prefers this one) and Scotland is the only country in the world where their native soft drink outsells coca cola.

I walked up Ben Nevis 18 months ago and had haggis in the hotel the night before. It was the first time I have ever had it and it was really nice.

Now your talking, Peshwari Naan taste heavenly :D

If you referring to my fishy comment , I don't mean the Yorkshires , There appears to be a battered food ( Prawns ? ) at 12 o'clock ( under the gravy boat ) and mussels ? at 6 o'clock under the mushrooms

My guess (both before and after finding the menu for that place) is triple-cooked chips, even through they're fat enough to be wedges. I don't know what the bottom thing is, it's not on the current menu, as far as I can tell. Here's a different angle of the same thing.

Yeah it looks like onions.

Bear in mind I'm a really fussy eater but it doesn't appeal to me visually tbh. Saying that as someone who really likes Sunday dinner.

I am having another roast dinner today as there is plenty of leftovers from yesterday.

There is also a fruit trifle waiting to be demolished.

Too many perishable items to use up and no space in my freezer.

I went to sainsburys, for a change, to use up some points and came home with too many goodies.

One of those items was taramasalata with smoked salmon - I could not resist.

I am back at work today (2.30) after 9 days off in which I was supposed to get a freezer and didn't :x I am such a

procrastinator.

Does 'The Procrastinator' sound like a cartoon villain to anyone else? He can make up evil plans for destroying the

world but he is always defeated by not getting on with them quickly enough. Then they set a trap but he doesn't turn

up (he was going to go latter) so the trap fails. I need to phone Marvel.

Did my stepdad make this up out of thin air or is there some truth in this...

Iceland the supermarket buy all the food that the other supermarkets couldn't get rid of or the food distribution places or something. The frozen stuff which is safe. Then get rid of it. Then don't bring it back but just see what else nobody else could shift

?

I think this may refer to Iceland buying 'bycatch' which is the unwanted fish that other stores do not want.

This is usually thrown back into the sea but it is either dead or half dead by the time it is so the fish doesn't survive. So about 40 % gets tossed back and wasted.

Iceland says it helps to save on over fishing and other environmental issues.

I suppose it is a bit like buying wonky veg - taste ok but just not desirable or isn't cod.

I'm not bothered about cod, place tastes nicer, and haddock. I like the oily fish best though.
