there was one at the bus stop near tiger tiger when I was coming home from my guitar lesson.

 

I didn't say anything

They're the type of people who buy LPs on Record Store Day but don't actually own a turntable.

do they buy lomo  cameras and not take pictures with them?

I have a big silly beard, and jeans that are too tight for me (cos I can't afford any larger sizes at the mo).

 

Am I a hipster?

 

Perhaps not as the Hull FC fans the other week unkindly referred to me as a grumpy Father Christmas.

 

Foodwise, and back on topic, I had a fantastic salad, chicken, onion wrap on Saturday night in Perpignan.  €4 and it was worth every centime.  Late night, fast food at its finest.

I got a couple of legs of mutton the other week. Very pleased with how they turned out after slow braising for 8 hours.

The other day in Java I had a meal of freshly killed (killed right in front of me) cobra followed by a big dish of fruit bat - wings and body.

A few days before that I gorged on a juicy dish of satay horse.

The cobra especially was delicious...as was the chaser of cobra blood and Chinese whisky mixed together.

Monkey was also on the menu but they had run out.

Just taken the marinaded meat out of the fridge for tonight's Curry Goat. This is my second attempt at this dish, but the first one where I've looked up recipes and tips to do it properly. The smell of the seasoned meat is already very promising.

went to my mother's to do tidy her garden up a bit:

big mug of tea and some fresh home made scones before setting off back home, beautiful. We had a good chat about stuff and some gaps were filled about one or two things.

 

I know she's my mam, but there is nothing to touch those scones.

Back from and expotition (sic) to Borough Market. The Iberico pork fillet and the morcilla (Spanish black pudding with rice) will be part of a sort of Pork Wellington thing tomorrow. The pigeon breasts and the Lord London cheese will be for the weekend, while the Scotch Pie and Wild Boar Scotch Egg have already been devoured.

 

The box of mixed macarons are for later tonight when the munchies strike.

Sometimes I really do wonder if you are a RL fan. You are doing their stereotype no good whatsoever.....but if you ever have a spare place at the dinner table I would be delighted to fill it. I'll bring the wine.

Just bought a stovetop espresso jug, something I haven't had for a few years. I found one that was well discounted and was queuing up to pay when I spotted some (also discounted) Le Creuset espresso cups, so I ended up spending more after all. These are they, pretty much life-size. I got an orange one, so now I have four espresso cups, none of which match.

Ceramic, as far as I can tell. But they look good and are nice to drink from.

But not the dog's bo11ocks?

Just bought a bag of cobnuts, which I haven't had in about 20-30 years.

 

Naturally, the nutcrackers, which I remember seeing in the kitchen only the other day, have vanished into thin air. As they always do...

Greenhalgh's Lamb vindaloo pie and a Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodle for lunch today. Crikey!

 

 

(On a separate note: I've bought a new toilet brush.)

I called into Glocester services on the M5 the other day.

I think it's owned by Westmorland Farmers that run Tebay services on the M6.

In my experience Tebay has easily been the best services on the motorways. They specialise in local produce and it's like an upmarket farm shop.

The new Gloucester services claim that most of the produce was sourced within 30 miles of its site.

I assumed that certain products might be shipped down from the other site when I spotted "Cartmel Sticky Pudding" for sale.

On that basis I bought some Cumberland sausage which I've just had for my tea. Unfortunately I was disappointed as it wasn't anything like real Cumberland sausage.

Other than that they do have some lovely stuff albeit at quite fancy prices.

As an aside the best Cumberland sausage from outside of the Lake District area that I have found is Tesco's Finest. They seem to have a pretty traditional recipe.
