Thai Food

 I was pleasantly surprised when I tucked into a Thai Green Curry. I am not a fan of curries but when in Rome do as the Romans. I mean, when in a Thai Restaurant you have to order a green curry.
 It's like going to MacDonalds and ordering a salad! Let's get the show on the road, spring rolls, burning hot pumpkin soup....
 the curry....woaaaa....and what a generously sized one too!
 sticky rice to dampen the kick from the chili-by the way, you do know that water only enfuriates the tongue when it's assailed by something spicy....
Honey, biscuit and lemon grass tea as an after thought.

 Thought I would try to be a bit posh and give the burger option a miss this time.
 I instead shared a platter of antipasto with a good friend. What is antipasto you ask? It means "before the meal" or in other words the cheapest thing on the menu if you can't afford the mains.
It was quite exquisite-sun dried tomatoes, sour capers, aubergine relish, olives and soft bread to mop up the olive oil residue. Very delicious indeed. You don't need to dine out to enjoy a fine plate of antipasto. You can just pop down to your local supermarket and plunder the can and jar section.

Mulberry Pie on a New Year's Day

The sharpness of the mulberry contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the custard. There. I just proved anyone can be a "Master Chef" judge ;)

 Other than watching "Master Chef" reruns on BBC Iplayer I did get to visit Oxford Street.
 Many shops are coming and going at the moment......

Burgers and Cheesecake

One gourmet burger with melted cheddar cheese.
 It was pleasant on the palette and a fine achievement in terms of fast food.
Speaking about humble achievements-the figs on the cheesecake was my idea.
