Linsey cooked a Paella tonight, the smell wasn't great for me as it cooked, the lounge and kitchen and dining room are one huge open space so I couldn't avoid it, I sat down to eat and it was more pungent, I was almost gagging, I couldn't eat it and had to leave the table, I love all the ingredients but together no thanks, at that, sorry sleepy, the cake will have to do tomorrow. I ended up with a packet of quavers and a glass of wine. I hate all this foreign muck and would have settled for a madras or byriani, but Spanish peasant food ! Yuk !!!

Interesting Martin.

I also thought that if you mixed tasty bits and pieces together then the result would be good.

I have disproved that theory on many occasions and feel much the same about Ukrainian peasant food....:45:

Tonight was a more acceptable Griddled and then thinly sliced rump steak with onions on ciabatta.
Another glass of wine, this time a rose.

Lanarkshire hot pot last night with baby beets, ketchup and crusty bread with a glass of wine, masterchef proffessionals eat your hearts out.
Tonight was a gamble, salt and pepper spare ribs, followed by combination king po, linsey had a special chop suey, our experience of Chinese takeaway up here has been mixed but this was excellent, so well done Sen Lin in Carluke.

what did you have tonight
Good Morning Martin/Yalimart - - A happy belated Happy Birthday. If you are missing English food, which it seems you are, you can have British food and drink within 7 to 10 days of your initial order.

This British on-line website has over 2,000 items of food and drink, delivered all over the world. I order from them regularly and have been very pleased with all my purchases, the way they wrap the goods and the delivery time - which has been between 7 and 10 days from my initial order. But you will have to pay some Duty in TL Cash upon delivery and you won't know how much until you get your items. Normally I pay between 10 and 20 TL for the Duty but once, for a very big order, I had to pay 150 TL. See here ... www.britishcornershop.co.uk ... x Angela in sunny Side, Turkey x

Angela,

I am an English man with Scottish heritage living in South Lanarkshire, A true Mancunian at heart. We don't eat Macaroni Cheese, nor do we put cheese on our chips, we have gravy on ours, buying British food is not an issue, we have a Lidl, Morrisons and a Tesco in Lanark, what I miss is the variety of English food we had in Manchester, Curry mile is over a mile long, Chinatown is bigger than Lanark, the Chinese supermarkets are football stadium size. We knew that when we moved up here although cheese on chips was an eye opener ! Anyway tonight was Roast Beef, roasted potatoes from the garden. Sprouts and cauliflower from East Lothian sticky gravy and carrots from the garden with swede from Aldi, Linsey thinks she has got away with not making the Lancashire puddings but i will remind her tonight when I despatch her to the shed for it.
Now back to putting cheese on chips, surely that's a criminal offence !

Martin
