It's against the law to jump off this bridge.

1 day, two meals, two very different experiences.
I have always thought that eating was an intensely social activity, I don’t like eating alone, it’s just not right. Today Tracy was at college so I made some breakfast alone. I had bacon, sausage, beans, tomatoes, a fried egg, bread and butter and a huge mug of steaming hot coffee; this comes top of my all time favourite meals. The first time I put my knife and fork down was after my last mouthful, it was rushed, and totally unsatisfying. I felt cheated.
Tonight we ate together, chicken cooked in garlic and lemon with roast potatoes, I had a bottle of red and we chilled and chatted whilst we ate. It was a far more enjoyable experience, relaxed and easy…… a joy.
So, a food meme. You know you want to do it. Simple really, three questions about your favourite food and drink. Cut, paste and wack on yours.
What’s your favourite starter ?
I’ve always preferred starters to a sweet, unless I fancy all three which isn’t often. My favourite starter would be seafood, maybe king prawns and a nice dipping sauce.
What’s your favourite meal ?
Full English breakfast, including black pudding which is gorgeous. It must be accompanied by a really hot mug of coffee.
Favourite pudding ?
Vanilla cheesecake from the Traveller’s rest at Grassmere. Cost me a month off work, but the least said about that the better.
Margarita, preferably served on a beach somewhere warm. But the living room will do.
