Rate what you ate

Similar to other threads - but you need to score your food to make it worthwhile!

For lunch today, a large, home made bread roll. A bit of butter, then some mayo. Mix that up with a bit of French grain mustard and some real mustard. A slice of ham. A couple of bits of cured meat. Some cheese. A few gherkins. Washed down with a coffee (fair trade of course, to keep the lentil munchers happy  :P )

6/10

Heinz beans on wholemeal toast with Marmite 9/10. Would have been 10/10 if I had any cake.

Unless Gordon Ramsay comes round your house and cooks you a meal, you cannot give such high scores!!

I just fed the cat. He licked it and then fucked off. I think he gave it 0.5/10

Last night's dinner: beef goulash with pasta*.  7/10 - the meat was slightly tough, it needed more garlic and a better quality beef stock.  But it was still tasty!

* something we got the idea from in Croatia - stews with pasta!

Just finished a plate of vegetable rissotto - Beans carrots & courgette freshly picked off the allotment where I've spent the morning weeding.  :smug:

Mushrooms would have bumped it up at least 2 points - wish I'd stopped at the shop for some.  >:(

Needed more salt, but I'm timetrialling tonight & salt gives me numb fingers over that bumpy 16 mile course.  :hand:

 5/10

Washed down with a bottle of Bishops Finger Ale.  :thumbsup:

Wrigley's Electro gum: Overpackaged and meh. Moderately tingly, but not a patch on the crunchy shell and mint shock of Extra. 4/10.
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

Sushi meal - including tempura prawn and sashimi - why can't you get wasabi that is spreadable but instead gloops to everything in great big lumps?

8.4/10

I'm stating to feel hungry again, so I just got a tuna steak out of the freezer to defrost for dinner. I have an enormous pile of runner beans from my dad's allotment, so I think I'll do a bean based stir fry. I'm thinking fish and soy sauce and I reckon it will be a solid 6.8/10 I'll let you know come dinner time!

I can and I will. Gordon Ramsay's an arrogant arsehole who gets his kicks out of deliberately putting meat into meals for vegetarians and then laughing about it. I wouldn't eat one of his meals if it was a choice between that and an 18p Lidl Cup Noodle.

OK, to be fair - I'd much rather you cooked me beans on toast than Ramsay  ;)

Cheesy beans on marmite toast is a much underrated classic.

Just got back from Casa Porto,    Portugese take on tapas.  All freshly made, we could see the kitchen.  Gorgeous food washed down with our own wine (BYOB)

Being Friday Payday we thought it might be busy, so I phoned up to book a table.  Two blokes nomming down in an empty restaurant.  They brought us the bill in a heart shaped box ......  :o   8/10

Had lunch at David Bann's restaurant today.

Grilled vegetable and potato salad - 9/10 (not enough potatoes)
Broccoli tart with lentil something and shallots - 10/10
Half a steamed rhubarb pudding and ginger sauce and half a chocolate souffle with vanilla icecream - 9.5/10 (pudding was a bit stodgy)

A seafood platter at our well-rated local pub restaurant. The langouste and prawns were lovely. Baby G ate half a Linclonshore sausage, potatoes, mash and peas too! And half her mother's lovely home made chocolate cake and ice cream. My spong cake with custard was more average. But generally another top marl for the Victoria Hotel in Beeston, Notts.
