Had dinner at Lea Valley Youth Hostel yesterday.

Two ham rolls: well, they were free :sick:
Island Bakery biscuits courtesy of Pilsbury: nom nom nom.

Go out and buy lots of them immediately.

Running the fridge down for holiday; couscous with roast veg (onion, red & green pepper, tomatoes, sweet potatoes) drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, washed down with a glass of Chateau Queyret-Pouillac Bordeaux Superieur (which was nice).
7/10.

Looking forward to Saturday evening (wife's birthday); traditional garlic prawns & garlic bread cooked on the Trangia with lashings of vino, sitting outside the tent in the Vendee. Mmmmmmmmmm.
Got to be a 10/10 for us.

Risotto using home-made chicken stock, mushrooms, red peppers and a big lump of Aldi hot-smoked salmon.   nomnomnom

7.5/10 - I'm on a diet so the lashings of parmesan and butter to bind it all together properly was right out the window

Proper oatmeal porridge with a goodly squirt of honey

9/10 - far superior to possidge oats, even if it does take twice as long ...

lunch:
tomato sauce [onions, celery, cherry toms, tom paste, olives, chilli powder...cooked and pureed] with spaghetti, topped with extra mature chedder.

pretty good, two plate fulls 7/10


evening meal: bit of an odd meal:
quinoa with sun-dried tomatos, green beans [from plot], spinach[from plot], reduced veggie bangers from Sainsburys [oven cooked with onions]
the whole lot chopped up, chucked in a bucket, bit of oil and chilli powder added, mixed with a big stick.... and eaten.

not bad, two big plate fulls 6/10

Full English breakfast, eaten by the pool in sunny Corfu. Cholesterol overload  :thumbsup: 8/10

the perfect fig, plucked from the tree outside my office just before the wasps got to it.

9.9/10 - docked 0.1 because it leaked figgy juice over my notebook.

Longley Farm rhubarb yogurt. 9/10. It lost a point because rhubarb isn't my favourite flavour.

I love Longley Farm yogurts. They're the yogurt of my childhood and I can only get them here from the health food shops. Every so often I go in and buy their entire stock. I think I have one more rhubarb and a blackcurrant one.

Longley Farm yogurts (and cottage cheese) were the staple of my student life. I loved them. We rarely have yogurt as partner no likey.

Stovies. Hmmmmm.

Mmmmmm. Not had stovies for ages. That's going on the menu in the next couple of days.

Tonight I had a tiny bit of pasta bolognese, salad with sun dried tomatoes and olives, and polenta chopped into cubes and fried in olive oil, garlic and basil. 5/10 for the bolognese (came from my mums work and the pasta was overcooked, one of my pet hates), 9/10 for the home cooked polenta and salad.

I made myself a curry last night. It was ace. I made my own sauce based on stuff from my dad's allotment. It was a good 7/10.

Of course, when you cook for one, you always make too much - so I stuck the remaining spice fest in the fridge and consumed it for dinner today. Even better - 9.4/10

Roast beef, with a gravy and Brains Bitter pie, horseradish mash and green beans. Preceded by a Welsh beetroot salad. All tucked into in a Principality Stadium Box.

Nice. 7.5/10

Breakfast: 2 slices pumpernickel, 2 slices cooked ham, both of decent quality: 5/10 compared to my favourite breakfast which is simply an XS of buttered croissants** and a vast bowl of good café-au-lait to dip them in.

**yes, I know. Try it.

So I'm all like "What can I do for dinner tonight?" I got some stuff in the fridge. I got some stuff in the larder. I could do some kind of Italian shit. But then you realise - you can't be arsed. But you can be arsed to walk to the kebab shop! You get there. You get your donner with extra chilli sauce. You walk home stuffing it in your face. It's greasy, it's shit, but my God it tastes good! You then get home, spend 10 minutes washing your hands, trying to get the grease off. And probably the next few hours trying to get rid of the taste of dead rat and onion. But by fuck it was worth it!

9.7/10  :)

Chana dhal with spinach and tomato. 8/10. Loses a point for having too much spinach and not enough tomato in this helping.

At Jamie Olivers in Gatwick South Terminal

Chicken, broccoli and kale, ceasar salad.

Served on a tin tray with a piece of paper on it, in tin cups, and sauces/coleslaw in little paper tubs that disintegrated.  And as per most airport food, not cheap despite being made to look so.

3/10

Those places are exercises in extreme disappointment. No matter how they dress it up, they know you can't exactly leave the building. Airport terminals are a bit like Hell, you can't exactly pop out.

I kind of hoped someone else would have thought of cooking dinner. I'd been busy all day, fixing doors, rebuilding a table, gardening, cleaning cooker etc etc. Nope.
So pizzas from the freezer it is.

Tescos GF pizza. I didn't expect it to be very large, since the box was a good 1.5" inches smaller than a normal pizza box. But when I slid out a pizza that was so bloody small my hand spanned it that is taking the piss.

1/10 for lying packaging. If it had been a toblerone it would have been a bar with one peak.
