Last night we made it home from London and knowing I would be zonked I decided to do a very rare thing for my household….. I ordered ready made food! 😱
This tapas selection came from Tesco and despite it offering a tasty and varied sounding selection, it was wholly disappointing. Everything tasted pretty much the same and has this underlying synthetic taste.
The best part was the ciabatta which I personally toasted and drizzled with truffle oil and fig balsamic.
Lesson learnt, cheaters never prosper.
*Dont be fooled by its alluring look!
Brilliant news guys, its Friday!
And because its Friday I thought I would treat my self to a little delight. I hopped along to Patisserie Valerie and delved right in. Yes they do a splendid looking selection of cakes but I am a real dairy fiend and so Ice cream was my weapon of choice.
I honestly can not tell you how disappointed I was. (It looks nice….It was not!)
The ice cream, both flavors (Pistachio and Rum Raisin) had this weird and unpleasant texture. I can only describe if as being filled with chewy (really chewy) and slightly fluffy bits, it was as though the ice cream may have developed a kind of crust and had then been mixed into itself. It certainly was not an ice cream with added bits, such as choc chip, it was very much like ice cream gone wrong and in my 30 years of ice cream eating, iv’e never experienced this.
What was far more annoying however is when we questioned the waitress about it she was clueless. When I said is it supposed to be like this? She answered “I don’t know, I don’t eat Ice Cream”….What?!?!?!?! Surely she has at some point eaten ice cream, or at least knows the basics of how ice cream should be! What a muppet. Terrible customer service, no offer of apology or even even the courtesy of checking on the issue. I will not be going back Patisserie Valerie (Chester).
One day I will learn.
On occasions, rare occasions (I’m talking maybe 6 times a year) I will purchase a ready meal.
Yesterday was one of these occasions. Due to a busy weekend away I didn’t go food shopping and so instead, I nipped to Marks’s and purchased an Indian banquet.
So, so disappointed. It was bland and incredibly dry. I must make this my last ever ready meal purchase!
