    The main thing I remember about KFC is that things dont always smell how they look.

    KFC chips are horrific. You would think chips is chips pretty much so I cannot believe how KFC can make their chips genuinely unpleasant.

    edit: 6 pieces if you've had a couple of drumsticks (best bits) or 5 if breast and thigh.

    Yeah, it’s just soggy potato sticks now days.

    I’m old enough to remember when they did french fries similar to McDonald’s and weren’t that bad.

    Looks nice.
    I suppose the problem with this thread is you can't go anywhere to get something interesting. :D

    Just had a triple cheeseburger and strawberry milkshake.

    I bloody love maccies shakes. Only problem is I can’t help but finish a large one and it bloats me quite a bit.

    Got quite obsessed with making Chashu Pork recently. Great for ramen and rice bowls. Found a butchers recently that does superb pork belly at a decent price per kilo. Find it quite similar to something like Ragu in that I get more obsessed with making it the I do eating it. Bottom shelf of the freezer is just bloody frozen Ragu and Chashu, can only give so much away!

    Cooked a proper expensive tea tonight. Grabbed a pack of baking spuds for 40p and a tin of beans for 30p. Proper crispy skins too.
