What are you eating and drinking tonight?

If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

With credits to LK, this is now the official thread to discuss the gastronomic delights, fine tipple and venues to partakeof both.
Or maybe you're just staying homeand sticking the frying pan on while you chug a beer. Let's hear about it. Go...

OK, to celebrate the arrival of this new sticky, I'm going to open my bottle of Linkwood single malt. I may regret it later.

I've got an Aberlour that's still unopened since Christmas. What do you think? :?

I reckon you should open it. It's March on Sunday for gawd's sake.

The Linkwood is very good - definitely one for Doublewood/Bunnahabhain fans.

Feckin good start... two malts I've never tried, and one - linkwood - i've never heard of... Hey, going on the birthday list...

OK - to throw out a challenge - you have a fine steak (or deeply tomato dish if veggie) - for me, medium rare, hint of garlic - patina of fried onions, two or three well crisped potatoes, mangetouts, and, for surprise, brussels sprouts...

What's the perfect red wine?

For me - Hermitage...

Go! :D

Steak cooked medium rare, drizzled with olive oil and rosemary, with a nice salad. Heaven.

My favourite dish though is lobbing in some prawns, garlic, olive oil, basil, onion and cherry tomatoes into a pan and tossing it with some spaghetti! Perfect and cheap!

As for wine? How about Lambrini?
I was saying Boo-urns

Supermarket ready meal curry

Bear with me

Bradfords finest curry house, Mumtaz, have started supplying reasonably priced curries to the co-op. Gave them a whirl tonight, impressed.

Anyone seen them on the right side of the peninnes?

For me, and this goes back to my 'unto each, their own' post from earlier: I'd say something with great flavour but that doesn't overpower anything on the plate (which sounds absolutely perfect and completely delicious) I'd suggest our Chilean friend from earlier, I really would!

Got a feeling a few will be coming back here shortly talking about summer diets and all that. :mrgreen:

If someone else was buying and I was cooking, a Rosso di Montalcino - and I'd bin the sprouts. Failing that I'd nip to Majestic and bag a couple of Gestos Malbec at £5.49 each (even though they seem to be dragging their heels opening the Leith branch).

And I'd keep the Hermitage for a minted lamb casserole.

I've tried so hard but I can't eat and drink at the same time.

Tonight I am imbibing a Canti Pinot Grigio. Fruity, dry and easy.

Steak to be done medium rare, with garlic and parsley, accompanied by asparagus that have been fried in butter for two minutes after having been steamed, some chunky chips and a drizzle of peppercorn sauce.

Wine must be McClaren Vale Maglieri Shiraz.

Given that we're now on a Saturday morning - could I put forwards for you gastanomic delectation.

The "Full English Breakfast" - a selection from:

Bacon - out of preference smoked for me, could be gammon on a road trip
Sausages - in descending order, beef and tomato if possible, beef if not pork as back up. Cumberland and Lincolnshire are dinner tackle for me.
Eggs - Fried at you discretion (not for me, I have some bizarre allergy)
Mushrooms - and not just "one large one"
Beans - maybe with little pork sausages in 'em
Black Pudding - a couple of small slices of the butchers finest
White Pudding - when available - Irish stock only
Potato Cake - as a maybe, if it's got to last you all day
Fried Bread - under current health guidelines, probably once a lifetime, if it's your last meal before facing the Electric Chair

HP Sauce.

And from the bar - Guinness on yer cornflakes or bucks fizz if in race-trip mode, but more generally English Breakfast tea in a very large mug.

A slightly more refined Full English than yours Worthy:

Fried bacon (smoked difinitely), two fried eggs sunny-side-up, a couple of pork and beef sausages, fried mushrooms, a nice bit of liver and a large slice of egg-bread. Bit of toast and marmalade to finish and a large mug of tea. Lovely. :D

good hearty sausage casserole for me tonight, and a big dollop of fluffy mash!

bread, butter & pint of icy orange cordial.
