Fish and chips. From the chippy. Lots of salt and vinegar. Mmm.

PIZZA!
I got a voucher which means a large stuffed crust pizza will cost me less than a small standard one, so I'm going for it. I'll have to bin a lot of it, which goes against my conscience, but it brings it into my price range.

What is it with pizza companies and their stinginess on sauce and toppings?
I only want extra sauce because otherwise they might arrive dry as buggery and then my lovely treat ends up in having to make a complaint.
And yes, I also want 4 toppings, but some of your standard pizzas have 5 or 6. And trust me, you don't get anything more for the price, just something different.
Also, if I am taking off meat to add onion, is it really fair to charge me anyway?

Grrrrrr.

Looking forward to my pizza anyway.

Pizza wasn't worth complaining about.
Delivery driver spoke very poor English, and could not find my house. I had to go out to meet him (barefoot).
I thought they'd all have satnav these days?!

Would've been nicer with double sauce but glad I didn't spend the extra on it. Ot hotter of course. Booked online, was 20 minutes late.

Tonight I made Hasselback potatoes. Again.
Third try and they get better each time.
Well... I wouldn't have served tonight's effort to anyone, because I overcooked them, but that was just a mistake of timing (and I loved the crunch!) it's just that I know the basics now. Next time I will try them with Boursin, as garlic and cheese are within the usual parameters.

Saying "usual", I'm making them with tiny Charlotte (new) potatoes, hence the need to experiment, as they are generally served jacket potato size.

I will def make them for my BBQ (on 30 July, day before my 40th birthday, you are all welcome). They can be enjoyed cold if cooked properly, which might be important if it hammers down on the day and the grill and oven are needed!

Tonight I did some hot italian sausages with green and red bell peppers, and onion. I just ate it as a big ol' mess on the plate with a big pile of mustard. Well, mustards; both french's and grey poopin'. And it was gooooood.

Baking a chicken with red potatoes, carrots, pearl onions, and mushrooms. Kinda boring, but the family likes this dish.

Mixed veg curry with my own mix of spices (curry powder, crushed cloves, grated nutmeg, ground ginger, garlic, ground cinnamon, crushed coriander seeds - whatever I've got really. Slam it all in.

Carrot and I walked to the village bakery, where i bought a hot turkey and stuffing sandwich. Ate the sandwich whilst sitting on a bench overlooking the village green and occasionally feeding little pieces of turkey to Carrot

Rounded it off with a custard tart.

Grilled fingerling potatoes, asparagus, and brussels sprouts (brush with olive oil, keep the heat low, let the brussels sprouts carmelize) - cracked pepper and minced garlic, fresh thyme and a little dill sprinkled over ... and for dessert, best. strawberries. ever. One little piece of dark chocolate with mint. Yummmm.
