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.......

Is there anything better than cold new potatoes (boiled obviously) dipped in fresh mayonnaise! Yum.
Yes,(howls of abuse from some quarters possibly?) I just had a ham and corned beef salad with hot boiled new potatoes swimming around in Lurpak. Deeeeee licious.... :D Wife goes for mayonaise with salad, I prefer seafood sauce.

Yes, almost anything. There are precious few things I find basically inedible. However, cold potatoes are very near the top of that list. See also - cold pizza.

Must be the Irish in me, but I just love boiled potatoes. Don't have to be new ones, Maris Piper or King Ed's are fine. If there were some left over cold from a meal I'd do the old-fashioned mashed version, mash them down flat with a fork, add a bit of milk and a nob of butter, touch of salt and pepper and away you go...
I also sometimes part boil a couple of decent sized spuds, slice em up into scallops and stick em in the chip pan, or frying pan. Couple of slices of bread and butter and....bliss... Easy pleased me..:D

Yep. I'm a spuds fan.
I especially like refried cold mash. I also love cold boiled spuds, sliced and then fried to a golden crisp.
That's not a leopard!

Took the wife and son out to lunch yesterday at The Pine Tree up/off Plodder Lane. Run of the mill place and not impressed. Waited almost an hour after ordering (after waiting 10 minutes at the bar because there was no one behind it) and the food was very mediocre at best. Not recommended.

Driven past that tango, sounds exactly as it looks. In a race to the bottom with the Toby Carvery next to it. The Red Lion is rubbish as well.

Aye, L.E, but yet they're always packed out? This was a ,midweek lunch hour, yet the horde resembled a food bank queue. Weird.

That the one that's still in the lead (despite some fierce competition) in the #toaman Worst Breakfast Ever competition? Grey eggs. How the feck does anyone fry an egg so that the white turns out grey? :conf:

Cordon Gray cooking? :wink:

I reckon all those establishments mentioned are on the way out. When the Steakhouses and Cavalier Inns first started up the food was decent and they were worth an occasional visit. Now they just shovel the food at you, (eventually) up the bar prices in the meantime while you wait and can't wait to get you through the door afterwards. Paying in advance eliminates much of the desire to wait for a second dose of the same splodge and, like most consumables these days, hands out for your money is the name of the game. Customer service/satisfaction are just words on the website adverts. There are better and cheaper meals in boxes in Iceland and the supermarkets.

The worst selection of 'food' that I have ever had the misfortune to witness. All whilst the guy responsible for pinging the microwave walked around in chef whites. :roll:

I'll happy eat my bodyweight in shit buffet breakfast at these places, doesn't mean I think they're good. My girlfriend fails to understand this mentality.

I don't mind a truckers breakfast in a truckers cafe/stop; I've had many a one in the past. At least you know what to expect. I just don't like the same thing, not as well cooked, in a "restaurant" minus the baked beans and posing as a "mixed grill". :wink:

Apropos of nowt, there used to be a real cracking waggon stop at Cannock Chase years ago. All you could eat, a big mug of tea and a morning paper at really fair prices. Just thought I'd mention that. :D
