LET'S TALK ABOUT FOOD, BABY . . .

Since I'm dry on inspiration today having worked that damn ten and a half hour shift then headed straight to my friend's flat to help her with some maths and verbal reasoning tests (therefore my brain is fried!), I will pose to you a question that a colleague of mine randomly posed to me this afternoon. Which possibly made my brain more fried than it already was.

If you could have a three course meal of your choice - right now - what would it be?

You can mix and match cuisines, it can be as boring or as outrageous as you want.

I'll start. And I have given this A LOT of thought . . .

STARTER - Either deep fried mozzarella sticks OR (yes I'm being a wuss because I can't decide) or bruschetta con funghi from Pizza Express. In fact, can I just HAVE both??? ;)

MAIN - roast chicken, potatoes (both roast AND mashed), gravy, stuffing, yorkshire puddings, cauliflower and brocolli.

DESSERT - hot chocolate fudge cake with cream.


(All washed down with some sparkling rose wine, of course!)

Oooooh, the calories!!! But oh so sinfully delicious at the same time . . .

Your turn??? ;)

  2. Ohh food talk when I'm drinking... not good, just giving me the munchies lol

    Starters: Jalapeño poppers with a sweet chilli dip (for they are BITCHIN'!).

    Mains: Tacos. I haven't had them in AGES. Although it just makes me sing that daft bit from that episode of South Park... # Taco taco, burrito, taco flavoured kiiiisses...#

    Incidentally, one of the directors at my work told us over dinner after a staff away day, that the word 'burrito' is derived from Spanish (obviously) and meaning 'little donkey'... referring to its' penis. And not, as Wikipedia states, the ear of a donkey.

    I don't think it's a coincidence that I haven't had a burrito since... especially after The Donkey Encounter... lol

    Anyhoooo....

    Dessert: not really a dessert kinda person, but I do like cheesecake. Ooh or chocolate covered strawberries. Those'll do. :)


    P, you bint, I'm really wanting Tex-Mex food now... lol

    xXx

    Starter: Oysters... some with garlic oil, parmesan and breadcrumbs... Some cold al la naturale... Some Kilpatrick and some with shallots and a red wine vinagrette.

    Main: A fresh piece of pepper encrusted Tuna - cooked rare and a thai salad - but I want some fried Haloumi cheese on the side.

    Dessert: Mars Bar Cheesecake all the way! With a healthy side serving of cream.... grrrrrrrrr!

    Oh my god! My tastebuds are watering and I'm having a brain orgasm just thinking about it!

  5. Fried brie with cranberry sauce.

    Anything german like Schnitzel, or lasagne, or salmon. I have to say the main course will be decided by my mood unlike the other two courses.

    Black forest gateau. Without question.

  6. Oh....I dunno, so many things I wanna eat! Lol (Btw that starter at Pizza Express is my fave) Right, I'll give it a go:

    Starter:

    Anti-pasti - olives, with stuffed chillies, maybe a wee salad with a balsamic dressing

    Main - has to be roast lamb. With all the trimmings - roasties, veg, and the plate must be swimming with gravy!

    Pudding - Has to be something chocolatey, maybe a chocolate cheesecake (with white and milk choc) with some vanilla ice cream, or cream YUM!!!

  7. Starter - Chinese selection eg prawn toast, spring rolls, prawn crackers yum yum yum

    Main - Lasagne with chips

    Dessert - Freshly cooked (and still warm) chocolate brownies with vanilla ice-cream, hot chocolate sauce and chocolate chips. (As you may have guessed, I love chocolate!)

    Yum yum yum. Though having said that I do love Nandos!

  8. Oooooh, the perfect blog entry to comment on when I'm stuck at work and forgot to pack a lunch...

    Starter: Mozzarella sticks. Man, total mega craving for them now.

    Main: my totally inauthentic California take on shepherd's pie (sweet potatoes, ground turkey, black beans -- really the only thing it has in common with real shepherd's pie is the HP sauce.)

    Dessert: wheat crackers with cream cheese and sweet jalapeno jelly. mmmmm.

  12. I'd start with salad, the main would be flank steak in my mom's special maranade, and then chocolate cream pie. Hmmm
