Eggs (scrambled) and chilli (beef, con carne)
eggs and chillis go hand in hand.
since googled and it is a thing so I didn't invent it, but was fucking marvellous
I had a strawberry and avocado salad yesterday and it was brilliant.
or balsamic vinegar - YEAH!
Also strawberries and basil!
seriously. The stuff out of a jar rather than the real stuff by the way, food indie-point scorers. Hellmans mayo is bland and full of calories, salad cream has a tang and flavour that brings the best out of oven chips and chicken kievs.
something changed. I think I just got really bored with mayonnaise.
I don't think we should compare. It's like asking me to choose between my sindy and my barbie, and mummy, i'm just not going to make that choice.
have some tortilla with it
Ordered from a curry house that we hadn't used for a while as they stuck a menu through the door that said they had new owners and a new chef...
The starters and mains were fine, however the garlic and cheese naan uaed cheese singles. Unbelievable.
Naan with garlic and dairy lea slice ... yep, i'm in.
The weird sugary taste of the singles just didn't go with anything else involved.
a couple weeks ago. I'd ordered a vegetable bhuna. What I got was a thin tomato-y sauce, with the only 'vegetables' being huge pickled lemons.
when BT started doing cheaper dialling for "friends & family", ie the 10 most-dialled numbers on your phone, & promoted it with a prize draw which would give the winner & their 10 friends & family a luxury holiday together. I had the depressing realisation that if I won, I'd be going on holiday with my mum, my ex-girlfriend, & the staff my local curry house.
Nothing will ever beat my sheer food outrage of asking for a chip butty in what appeared to be a proper chip shop, and being given a bag of chips with a bun on top. Pricks.
The chip baguette is a popular delicacy in northern France, but not so in Paris as me & a mate found out one evening. Ordered chip baguettes, & the stall owner said "Messieurs, you are not in the north now" in a most condescending tone. "OK...well can we have two baguettes & two portions of chips please." He looked at us suspiciously & said "Are you going to walk away from here where I can't see you & put the chips inside the baguette?" "Yes" we replied, assuming he was joking. He then started yelling at us to get the fuck away from his stall & never come back. Mental.
like when they banned snakebite at a pub I used to visit. "Er, I'll have a half of lager, a pint of tap water and, er, let me see, yeah, a half of cider. cheers"
& you've pretty much got a Malaysian roti John:
I had to resort to this when we ran out of frosties/ crunchy nut last week. It's good, but i think it's giving me spots.
with hot fresh milk, & then condensed milk poured over the top. Breakfast of champions.
I am getting some weetabix later so i can have this tomorrow. Ive only started taking cereal in the last few weeks because i cant keep having full scottish breakfasts every day.
I think my palate must be really quite fucked as i don't appreciate subtle flavours nearly as much as i should and im always sloshing on condiment or adding chilli.
is a great way to liven up eggs. Fry half a dozen slices in olive oil, mince them up a bit so all that lovely red oil comes out, and then crack an egg on top & fry it. Shove on a slice of hot buttered toast, absolute breakfast nirvana.
Got to stop drinking.
welcome to the 21stC
jelly babies in with my cheerios.
it was shit.
yeah yeah yeah yeah
i'm into this idea.
if you have one thats sort of madras level-heat or hotter it adds a really interesting supplementary taste.
cherry-related foods i have eaten in the last year: cherry salsa, cherry quinoa salad, cherry coffee. cherry me up.
