A man's gotta eat.
It's Heston Blooming Heck on the TV again tonight. I wrote a blog line about him last week and enjoyed his show (despite his lack of tie wearing) .
He seems to elevate simple meals to extraordinary heights and last week he took 3 days to make a chicken tikka. Tonight he's looking at hamburgers! His show is quite smart but massively impractical if you are an idle sort (and I am definitely that) but he doesn't pretend his shows are anything but what he likes to do, so that's okay, I suppose.
A freind of mine and a BS4 reader likes Hugh Ferrari Market Stall and his river cottage and Nigel Slater too - he's not bad either. She's a good cook and made me some fine meatballs a month or so back, so maybe she'll leave a comment on Heston B-H.
After that it's Spooks - top drama. Lara at work missed last week's and was dicey about whether her mum or dad would record tonight's second part. Just get on the sofa and watch it live, girl!
Back to burgers - if I'm on take out detail Mc D's suck, Burger King are okay but the UK really lacks a fine burger chain. That's one thing the Septics do well but then again that's why they're all a-massive. When I was in Los Angeles I tried a few burgers and Wendy's were okay.
Actually BS5 lacks a decent take out for burgers but we did just open a new Jamaican restaurant and we also have Thai, Chinese, Indian and a decent chippy!
Right then - off to make dinner, suitably inspired (tender loin pork korma after all that!)
