Steamed Chicken and brocolli
Bought this a year ago. Finally decided it was time to try it for my supper.
Really nice. Not as fishy as I was expecting it to be. A bit expensive at £3.99 a tin though. But at least I liked it
My 2nd choc ice and now bed
Chowder never looks appetizing, but can be amazing.
I had smoke salmon chowder from a sour dough bread bowl whilst on holiday in the states last year, it had so much flavour! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
This evening we had quit a nice Thai chicken noodle dinner round a friends house.
hmmm that reminds me strawberry sandwich
if you not had a strawberry sandwich before you havent lived
fresh good bread + good butter + sliced strawberries or fresh raspberries + sprinkle bit of sugar on boom !
my flat mate said he'd cook scampi n chips for 7pm... great
@ 7pm the oven isnt even on!
10 minutes past 7pm cainers eating house special chop suey & s+s chicken balls from the chinky accross the road
11 minutes past 7pm my flat mate whines that he would have liked chinese too..
cainer tells flat mate too late.. fu.. closes door finishes chinese food and has a siesta
I haven't eaten all day and am just back from a few pints at the pub in the sun therefore I have far too many carbs in the oven for a normal person.
Moricha Lamb curry and Puri
Love this curry, naga hot but with such a nice blend of flvoour.
However the curse of the human body. Where before I used to be in pain,just a slight sweet on these days. It doesn't quite give me that chiili kick anymore. But so many hotter things be it sauces etc. lack balance/flavour. And heat with out flavour is pointless.
Went to a mexican chain place. Had the pulled pork burrito which was delicious. Other half got a chilli con carne chimichanga which he also enjoyed.
Went to Maiyango for my sister's graduation in Leicester:
(Not all of my dishes!)
Duck spring roll, terrine and parfait.
Tian of crab and avocado (I think it was)
Organic rump of lamb.
Fillet of beef.
Chocolate fondant and salted caramel ice cream.
Very fancy looking dishes there Razor. Cant imagine that was a cheap meal.
+1 looks great, and plentiful
Plentiful? Eh... maybe its the fact I grew up in a small town and dont get to a lot of fancy resteraunts, but I always look at those tiny little portions and feel like their slightly ripping people off.
I know its all about quality over quantity in these places, but I still think they could give more, especially for the high prices they charge.
Potato waffles and baked beans.
(Not exactly fine dining right now)
Those Maiyango dishes look fab.
Left to fend for myself again tonight
Not cheap but wasn't too expensive! £30 a head for 3 courses which is pretty reasonable.
I only really eat at fancy restaurants for special occasions and I'm a pretty big eater, but it was enough, probably because of the wait between each course so the food settles rather than eating all in one go and before your stomach has time to let you know you're full!
Ben & Jerry's Caramel Chew Chew
Big bowl, small spoon
And went to Cherry Duck in Bristol for my graduation.
This was £25 a head for 3 courses and I liked it a lot more than Maiyango. Steal!
Seared scallops with sous vide chorizo (this was awesome!).
Duck with beetroot sauce.
Roast guinea fowl.
Sticky almond tart with vanilla marscarpone and raspberry sorbet.
Chocolate fondant with sesame brittle and salted caramel ice cream.
Panna cotta with cheese ice cream (this was WEIRD) and poppy seed biscuit.
Saturday night without a drool worthy pic of a giant takeaway from Cainer.
I am disappoint
