    Indian. Chinese curry is nice, but it is easier to do an Indian from scratch for me. I never use a sauce mix.

    Same here - all spices toasted, ground and mixed by hand. And you also have control over the amount of chillies you add. Bwahaha etc.

    Agree with that Paddy.

    I would say curries ( Indian, Chinese, &Thai ) are my most favourite things that I like to cook .

    Kenny was planning on having a lamb dish tonight, so we popped into Waitrose at lunchtime as usual and he thought he would have a look at how much it was in there.

    Two smallish lamb fillets "in rosemary" (they bunged a sprig of rosemary in the pack) was the bargain price of 16.02. Fuck that. You need a re-mortgage to buy anything decent in that place.

    Bloody hell. You forget how expensive meat is over there when it is so inexpensive here.

    That is Waitrose prices. Everywhere else is reasonable

    Piece of Pork - 10 I think. For a rolled shoulder that size in Morrisons I would expect to pay 3. I don't care if it was the happiest pig in the world and bathed in luxury, that is a bloody rip off.

    Its the Supermarket that is 2 mins from the office. So we use that for Milk and ensuring Paddy can have 15 bags of crisps per day.

    We only go to pick up our lunch as it is walking distance. Would never buy a weekly shop in there without previously clearing it with the bank manager.

    Mind you - Waitrose "Crayfish Tail and rocket sandwich" I buy is a bargain at the price of 3......

    Why don't you take milk with you from home, and take your lunches from home ,Paddy takes his suitcase of crisps from home ? Then you dont have to go buggering off to Waitrose and paying through the nose prices.. You know why its so expensive there than anywhere else ? Its where posh people shop.

    Milk is no more expensive. I take food in with me if I can be arsed plus it gets me way from the PC screen for a bit. If I am feeling up for 10 min walk, I will use Sainsburys when that opens in a few weeks.

    Sainsburys is an extra 500 yards. I may die.

    Belly Busters every time. I am going to take on their 10 challenge

    5 sausages, 5 slices of bacon, 4 hash browns, 2 eggs, mushrooms, beans, fried bread, black pudding, 4 slices of toast, tea or coffee

    that is all I can remember - there was probably more!

    Ugh. Rocket. Easily the most unappetising looking salad item there is. It looks like the stuff you'd get growing on the hard shoulder of a motorway, and tastes like it too.
    Oh my god! Whitney's dead? How's Michael Jackson taking it?

    I love it in my salads ( arugula as its called here ) adds its own distinct taste.

    pepper taste. I like it. Squeeze hates it with a passion though.

    None of this fancy posh home made stuff for me. Chef Dan bunged a Pie Minster Moo Pie in the oven and had it with mash and beans and it was bloomin' Bostin!

    Kebab meat and chips. Ultimate guilty pleasure.
    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.
