More of the same…

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

So, instead of moaning, I’m calmly posting some pictures:

The lorry’s not going to be going anywhere for a while, I feel…!

If anyone in my area is paying loads for gym membership, they’re welcome to come and carry bales of hay on their backs through this – a full-body workout! (And I’m sure I’d charge them less than a gym would 🙂  )

Brrrrr…

It was a bit chilly, put it that way. And not much gritting has been going on which is fair enough because it’s a weekend and they need to save supplies for weekdays. But still… not good.

Anyway. 🙂

I had my Christmas work do last night which was really good. I was driving as I couldn’t risk staying and not being able to get back today but that meant I got to be entertained by everyone else’s drunkenness!

The food though – not impressed. I had salmon, which I usually love, but they’d pan-fried it in a HUGE amount of fat which made it really dry. Plus, they’d cooked all the vegetables in butter – why do that?! They were dry too and so not-nice, I could barely finish the broccoli which is saying something!

Pudding made up for it though: meringues, strawberries and cream? Oh yes 🙂

Still, I don’t mean to sound snooty because each to his own, but I’d much rather have something like this:

Spinach and grated courgette with soft cheese, made similarly to this, and baked with grated cheese on top… delicious, served with steamed veg and roasted butternut – much more my cup of tea!

Do you like eating out? Or do you prefer cooking things the way you like them?

    The spinach dish sounds great! Shame about having more snow though.

  4. Now I much prefer eating at home. I have got more confidence with cooking and trying new recipes, and I often think I would make things nicer at home (to my taste with less oil etc). Especially as veggie options at christmas do’s are often awful!

  5. Recently I much prefer cooking my own food, more often than not I’m disapointed when I eat out! Not as nice as my cooking haha!
