Cauliflower, leek, celery & potato soup (vegan version) + cream (vegetarian version) + crisply fried pancetta slices (carnivore version). I will be having the last option.

 

Been having a fridge clearout!

On Saturdays we usually have salt and pepper baps filled with cooked meat.  This week it's ox tongue.  I will have thick slices of mild onion on mine, and a couple of chopped tomatoes on the side, while 'Er indoors will have hers with sliced tomato.   We will have some vegetable crisps each too. We will then have chopped pineapple and a fruit yogurt. We never have cooked on a Saturday evening except on the odd occasion I will do a stir fry.

I had to look up the term "baps" on Google.

You own a spiraliser :oops:

I know I'm not up on trends but aren't spiralisers out at the moment, just a bit too 2015 to be really cool.

They’re not out in this house.  In fact every time I use it, it takes me ages to remember how to use it!  :laugh:

Interesting - it must be a Northern thing. Mind you, one of the reviewers in your post possibly had other things on his mind

Baps = barm cakes in Manchester environs.

 

My dinner today is homemade beef burgers, fried onions, sauté potatoes and cooked salad. There are some runner beans lurking in the fridge but I'm not sure they are really suitable.

The cooked salad is the remains of a packet of mixed salad (rocket, chives and baby spinach) microwaved for a minute or so to cook.

Roast dead chicken today, with roast spuds, carrots and sprouts.

I'd like to watch you trying to eat roast live chicken :biggrin:

We are having slow cooked Welsh lamb shanks tonight - with mixed autumn organic vegetables, steamed Maris Piper potatoes and a rosemary, mint and red wine jus accompanied by a bottle of Espirito da Santo full bodied Portuguese red wine.

 

I prefer to call it bloody expensive sheep's knees, with spuds, veg, gravy and mint sauce washed down with some decent red wine. It sounds more nutritious and tasty.

 

This will be followed by some awful leg cramps during the night - red wine does that if I drink the full bottle..

Have you thought about the potential damage to your liver? I stopped drinking whole bottles of wine a long time ago. A bottle now sees me through three days.

It's being so cheerful that keeps you going.

 

I never drink the full bottle - I always leave some dregs for management.

I stopped drinking alcohol (in all forms and presentations) on December 2nd, 1999. That was the date of my first tangible heart attack and my first near-death experience. I had a second two days later. Apparently, I had had several painless, but very damaging, attacks in the previous few weeks. During my recovery, I had plenty of time to think about life, the universe and everything and I decided that I didn't need alcohol. I'm not blaming alcohol for any of this but I should emphasise that I haven't missed it in all of these seventeen years.

 

In four days time, it is the first anniversary of my latest residence in the coronary care unit.

I would miss my one large glass with my dinner. But each to his own, you are obviously a man of conviction pops, with good willpower.

I used to like a glass of lager, but then persisted in drinking the stuff when I'd got the lurgy and ended up with a conditioned taste aversion, it's tasted foul ever since. I still have the occasional Vodka and lime but as I'm invariably the designated driver and never much fancied wine am as close to teetotal as makes no practical difference.

:innocent:

You are quite right in saying that lager tastes foul. You can't beat real ale, I won't drink any other so called beer.

Tonight we’ll be having leftover roast duck, which I will make into duck burgers ? without the bun.  

 

They will be accompanied by Actifry chips, plus some green veg - not yet decided which one.  :smile:
