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 🙂 )
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.
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 🙂
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?
