Last nights dinner was a slice of home-made corned beef pie, steamed carrots and brocolli, boiled potatoes and gravy. The pie was an experiment, first one that I had done and it turned out rather nicely.
I followed up that with some crackers and "Mexican Cheddar with jalapeno peppers". Rather nice, and I had enough corned beef pie left over to do several more meals this week.
Today I had a curry, made by anonymous people in a factory somewhere then heated up in a very old and quite probably unsafe microwave. It was only after eating it that I realised that it may not have been the best food choice considering I had the runs several times this morning. Hmmm.
Whilst walking home, i stopped into the chippy and bought a roll & chips. Once i'd scoffed that, I stuck in a wee pizza. Once I'd polished that off, the Missus came in with a load of soup she'd nicked from her gran who lives down the road. So i had a big bowl of that too.
I'm getting roast beef on Friday. It's the alt.christmas thing my mum does most years (turkey being a swear word in our house). The timing is also a bit alt.christmas as we don't "do" Christmas en famille any more. That saying, I've got my eye on a pizza tonight (I might send the lodger out to Hastings to get it).
Yours hungrily (yeah that and the food porn thread did it for me).
Nobody would eat an uncharismatic dessert like that!
I didn't have a great deal of time for cooking this evening (and left the corned beef pie I intended to have in the freezer this morning), I ended up having some Muligatawny soup, and a roll with some sliced chicken in it. Very palatable it was too.
Pizza, garlic bread and full fat coke. The diet starts soon. Probably.
Karl, I never knew you had learned to cook properly. I can count the number of times on one finger you ever cooked for me.
I couldn't cook for the life of me when I was younger, but since then I have become fully-rated to run my kitchen without an instructor hanging over my shoulder. My skills are still limited, but I get by.
I had turkey, roast potatoes, special gravy, pork stuffing, Other stuffing balls, cranberry sauce and sausages with bacon wrapped round them in various combinations from a 'help yourelf' type affair concocted by my mother on Chrimbo Day.
Christmas Dinner this year was a good one - roast potates, some turkey, a couple of stuffing balls, steamed carrots and sprouts and some gravy. That was followed up with Christmas Pud and cream, washed down with a couple of glasses of wine.
