Tonight I cooked..........

Port and brandy is always the best combination for filling a glass.
Dear lord, I think after an evening on that mixture I wouldn't have gotten out of bed for a day afterwards.

What ratio?

Reminds me of the 'Dog's Nose' cocktail from Tom Sharpe's Grantchester Grind which (having looked it up again) was 60% gin to 40% beer.

That sounded dangerous too.
 
Skinless, boned chicken thighs wrapped round some black pudding and then wrapped with bacon, or as I like to call them cnuts on camels. Served with chips and gravy and coleslaw.

Port and brandy is excellent.

For a real drink, albeit one with catastrophic consequences, try brandy and Benedictine.
Port, brandy & champagne in the ratio 20/20/60 for the win.
Took me days to remember who I was. :drunken:

Simple fare tonight: Stewed steak mince in gravy with a couple of bay leaves, nuked broccoli & spinach & boiled baby spuds in their skins.

That was my favourite tipple when I drank, especially on a dark cold winters night.
Oh god what with Christmas coming up I'm in a pickle I fancy a drink but at the same I don't. I'm going mad and Brexit isn't helping.

Until it looks and tastes right. Just pour there are no measurements, taste and add untill you are happy. :1::party:

That takes me back to school dinners; Spam fritter, chips, coleslaw and gravy. Surprisingly tasty. Either that or I've got that bad dementia

You've mentioned that a few times. I'm probably being dim but what do you mean by 'toasting bread'? A thick, 'Texas-toast' type fella or something else?


It is 100% Durum wheat bread imported from Italy which is designed to be toasted and is excellent.

It also freezes well and tastes just as good when defrosted or done in a toaster with a frozen bread setting.

I've only seen it in Waitrose, click on the following link for the details.

Ta.

The sliced pre-packed sourdough half loaf they do is pretty good as well.
