    For lunch today, a sausage roll, followed by a bowl of the chicken & lentil soup with a couple of slices of wholemeal bread

    The touch of curry powder did a great job of adding just the right level of zing to that soup

    There is flooding? In which part of London is this?

    Bit chilly out. Apparently it rained around lunchtime.

    Lunch was tuna mayo sandwich with cucumber and jalapenos. No sneaky snacks today.

    Dashed chilly here too, though if the source of data on which my watch relies is to be trusted, it’s doing that thing of getting marginally warmer as it gets dark: up from 6° early to 7° now

    And it’s rained once or twice, though not at any great length or in any great quantity.

    Tea this evening was M&S breaded haddock (chunky).

    Which was nice enough.

    Now being rounded off with 1.05 pints of Good Glengettie Tea.

    The evening's entertainment is expected to be BTVS and Angel for a change.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    I made a fresh batch of chips for freezing this afternoon, as there weren’t going to be enough for my tea otherwise. I’m using some Norfolk spuds at the moment, the first I’ve had from there (via Sainsbury’s) this season. They’re very good; they seem to have a particularly low sugar content, so they can be cooked to a high degree of crispiness (in stage 3) and still be no more than a golden yellow colour

    Had the most crispy of crispy chips in Amsterdam. Pale coloured too. HWMBO was close to asking about their potato and fat choices. He likes a triple cooked chip or two.

    I thought you said the freezer was full?

    i thought that, too

    dinner has been more of the malay lamb curry.
    all the better for its brief sojourn in the freezer.


    watching rick stein in Alsace.
    used to ride around there on weekends when i lived in Basel.
    <on a proper bike, with a one litre v-twin engine, before BP says anything>

    great place, and people.

    nostalgia ain't wot it used to be

    Entropy is NOT what it used to be.
    Inertia, however........................

    Can always cram a few chips in

    Anyway, it’s the soups/casseroles region that’s at capacity. There’s some space in the bread area, and a bit among the raw meat and fish. Not much in the area where non-raw-animal things like chips and peas and Yorkshire puds and herbs and cooked meats go, but the bread was happy to shift over a little.

    Tea tonight has been ribeye steak, with fried onion, chips (fresh today!), and beans. Well nice
