Lynsey kept tricking me into thinking she was a vegetarian, too. She even went so far as to order a plate of vegetarian nachos at the 13th Note.

We had homemade deep fried chips last night. They were fucking delightful.

There's not many better smells than chips frying, is there?

I had this combination for dinner today. There's no need for a Sunday roast when this is around.
What is possibly even better than this combo (I'm contradicting myself) is tomato soup and a cheese-filled arepa. It's a sweet corncake thingy that has cheese and is grilled like a grilled cheese.

Is corncake a bit like cornbread? I love cornbread. I should put this in the 'say something nice about that America' thread.

It is almost exactly like cornbread; it's the same batter, just thinner and cooked like a pancake.

Cornbread rules. On the drive home I was planning New Year's Day dinner already. It's going to have cornbread, black-eyed peas, and collard greens.

We southern livin' folk traditionally eat this on New Year's Day because it means we won't starve in the New Year.

I'm all poorly and feeble this weekend, so I put some Fire Sauce on my beans on toast just now and I feel loads better now.

It's got witchcraft in it!

we had a freezer catastrophe the other night that left us with a few things of fish needing to be used pretty quick.
so the other night i made a super hearty fish pie, with smoked whiting and veg and a creamy sauce and lots of mash on top.

i sort of stole the recipe from here


but i used three fillets of smoked fish, and no prawns
and i chopped the veg a bit finer so i could keep it in the pie for extra goodness. and i didn't really measure the potatoes, or use the fishy milk for the mash. but the general idea was the same!

it was lovely, and super-easy and made me feel very cosy.

I was in need of some serious comfort today so I made a rarebit sauce and grilled it on toast for breakfast. It had loads of beer in it. I had beer for breakfast!

I can stop whenever I want, Jamie. For dinner I cooked veggie bangers and mash and the gravy I made to go with it had over a pint of red wine in it. I belong to a new, highly sophisticated breed of alcoholics.

What a waste of wine. All the alcohol's going to evaporate! Is the sophisticated part of it standing with your face over the pan breathing in the fumes?

Bloody Mary's. I just got a fresh supply today - tobasco, worcester and celery but couldn't find any vodka.

Had a lot of fun dipping gerkins into wasabi today. Just hope my eyesight returns soon.

Argh I actually did that when making dinner on Friday night. It didn't feel particularly sophisticated, I must say.

I didn't use a pint of wine though, that's insanity.

I have always loved my Mum's sauerkraut. Now I have started making it and eat it at least twice a week.

Aside from that I also love eating frankfurters with boiled rice and soy sauce.

My favourite comfort food is boiled dinner with ham (not salt beef). Mushy salty goodness.

My second favourite comfort food is johnny cake (cornbread) with butter.

I've just rediscovered the joys of ripped up white bread in soup. Pulpy mushy hug-in-a-bowl.
