Cheaters never prosper

Food

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.

Marks and spencer disappointment 

chicken, Indian

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!

  

16 Inches of Joy

Food, Foodie, Pizza

16 inches of Joy!
Total naughty night last night!

No cooking, just a massive 16 inch takeaway pizza!!

Chicken, bbq, pineapple, sweet corn. Oh my!

   
 
Babylon pizza Knutsford: I don’t highly rate it but it’s the only pizza place that delivers to my village so pizza beggars can’t be choosers!

Meatball Monday

Beef, Food

After a mammoth weekend (the good kind) today I feel about as energetic as a sloth may feel after a long walk and the consumption of a Sunday dinner…. Not energetic at all!

For that reason I nipped to Marks and Spencers and bought some meatballs and mini roasties. A simple 25 minutes roast and dinner was served. OK so this lacked afford on my side but come on, everyone needs a break once in a while?

As it happens, I didn’t love it. I’ll stick to cooking from fresh next time…

  

Comfort food cop out

Beef, Food, Kitchen, Pie

Last night we returned home at about 6pm after a weekend of 2 christenings, 1 wedding and a total of over 9 hours driving! Needless to say I was super tired and so rather than cook, I bought a pie from our local co op and put my feet up!

It was a steak pie and I accompanied it with some mini roast potatoes and sweetcorn. It was deliciously naughty but just what I needed after a busy weekend. Comfort food at its best!!!!!
